With the Canon W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter scheduled to begin shipping today, I expected that new firmwares for compatible DSLRs would be available this morning. However, while a new 7D Mark II firmware was easy to locate, I was surprised to find the EOS 5Ds / 5DS R firmware update missing.
 
Then I came across the actual firmware update announcement from Canon Japan for the 5Ds / 5Ds R (published in late August) which explains that the ultra-high resolution bodies' new firmwares are planned for a November release.
 
So it looks like all the 5Ds and 5Ds R customers who preordered the W-E1 will have to wait a couple of months before they can use the [hopefully] nifty little device. Why Canon failed to have the new firmware available at the time of the W-E1's release is unknown.

From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
Based on feedback from large photo organizations, news photojournalists, and so on, Canon has delivered a significant firmware upgrade for the EOS-1D X Mark II camera. Firmware upgrade version 1.1 clearly targets professional users and organizations, but as you’ll see, some of these features may be useful to individual working pros or even serious photography enthusiasts. We’ll examine what’s new in this firmware upgrade in this article.
 
In a nutshell: what’s new and different?
 
This new upgrade (version 1.1) addresses specific issues that professional news and photojournalism organizations have brought to Canon’s attention — we understand that not all of these will be important in more ordinary, everyday use to individual photographers. That said, the changes and new features that this firmware adds to the EOS-1D X Mark II camera are the ability to:
 
  • Install up to 39 items of IPTC information into the camera, and to add data (or deliberately not apply it) to images you take
  • Add set-up information for up to 40 new Wi-Fi networks to a memory card, and load that data as a full set of possible Wi-Fi networks to select from for connection
  • Transfer only “protected” images via Wi-Fi
  • Retain GPS position data: Continue to apply last known GPS location information to images subsequently taken, even if GPS connection is lost (photographer went inside a building, etc.)
  • Change LCD color tone (four pre-defined settings), to either approximate display from other cameras you’re working with, or to shift color tone based on ambient lighting as the LCD monitor is being used
Keep in mind that the EOS-1D X Mark II differs from other Canon EOS models in that it not only permits network communication and transfer of images via Wi-Fi (using the optional WFT-E8A or WFT-E6A wireless file transmitters), but also via wired ethernet connection — there’s a dedicated ethernet port on the camera for this purpose. This allows similar network connectivity, but without some of the variables users can encounter on-location with Wi-Fi transmission. Firmware v. 1.1 doesn’t change this; we only want to remind users of it here.
Read the entire article on the Canon Digital Learning Center.
 
Note: The firmware is not yet availble for download on Canon USA's website.
