Canon EOS 5D Mark II Firware Update

screencap_20090108_1Firmware Update Version 1.0.7 improves and mitigates the following two types of image quality phenomena that occur under certain shooting conditions.

  1. “Black dot” phenomenon (the right side of point light sources become black)
  2. Vertical banding noise

Firmware Version 1.0.7 is for EOS 5D Mark II cameras with firmware up to version 1.0.6. If the camera’s firmware is already version 1.0.7, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Notes:
When updating to Firmware Version 1.0.7, please also update the Digital Photo Professional and Picture Style Editor software. Firmware Version 1.0.7 can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. Updates for Digital Photo Professional and Picture Style Editor can be downloaded from the following Web site.

I dont like the idea of that magenta cast on sRAW file. The black dots is no biggie to me so Il probably wait for the “complete” that includes the magenta issue on sRAW’s.

Yeah PRO 9500 fine art printer baby!

“Di ako nakatiis!” I couldnt resist the temptation so I bought the monstrous Canon Pixma PRO 9500 fine art printer. This was one of my gear wishlist (gadget lusts) this 2008 see post “Do i need this or not?” 

I bought two, one for home and one for studio :D…..

nahhhhh… the one at the bottom is for my friend Anthony Marquez, a serious hobbyist who is also into travel and landscape photography.

 

Have look on the humungous box.

 

Will have some test prints today… Im pretty excited with the upcoming venture with this printer. I might offer fine art printing services.

At last I now have a total control of my fine art printing!
