Weekend Gear Updates

Canon has released a firmware update for the EOS 5D Mark II but not the long awaited 24 fps video. According to Canon this minor firmware update fixes the following issues.

EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Update Version 1.2.4

  • Supports the WFT-E4 II wireless file transmitter that was released in December 2009.
  • This firmware update corrects a phenomenon that if the [C.Fn II-1 Long exposure noise reduction] setting is set to [2: On], noise may appear in images that are captured while the previous image is still being generated.


Adobe has also released some updates recently. Camera Raw 5.6 and Lightroom 2.6 are now available on Adobe’s support site. These two updates add support for the latest camera models like the EOS 7D and Powershot G11.
