Canon Japan has released some information regarding a firmware update for the Canon EOS 1D C camera. It seems that a new firmware update (version 1.2.0) will be available soon.
Below is an updated translation regarding the changes in the firmware update. Firmware Changes:
- Provides support for 25.00p (fps) video recording frame rate (PAL settings) at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution.
- A function to disable the image size selection button has been added.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which a difference in exposure appears on every other shot when shooting continuously and the auto-lighting optimizer is turned on (on weak, standard or strong).
- Fixes a phenomenon in which video recorded onto an external recorder sometimes becomes two-layered if it has been recorded through HDMI output.
- The video frame rate now displays two additional decimal places, e.g. 24p -> 23.98p (fps).
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the on-screen guidance cannot be fully displayed when setting the maximum limit value for the “Auto ISO Range” option.
- Corrects errors in the Portuguese language menu.
From what we understand, customers will have to send their cameras into Canon Service to perform the firmware update. The turnaround for the firmware update is expected to be about a week.
