Canon has issued a product advisory for the EOS 5D Mark IV to alert customers of a delay in the release of a firmware update.
 
From Canon USA:
 
We would like to inform you that release of firmware to enhance functions of the EOS 5D Mark IV, which was originally scheduled for November 29 at the same timing as the firmware updates for six other models (EOS-1D X Mark II: Ver.1.1.4; EOS-1D X: Ver.2.1.0; EOS 5D Mark III: Ver.1.3.5; EOS 5DS: Ver.1.1.2; EOS 5DS R: Ver.1.1.2; EOS 6D Ver. 1.1.8), has been postponed until late February 2018 for reasons related to firmware preparation. We would like to offer our sincere apologies to users of this product who have been inconvenienced.
 
In the firmware to enhance functions of the EOS 5D Mark IV, we are planning to incorporate the following enhancements:
 
  • Support will be added for chromatic aberration correction, peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and Digital Lens Optimizer when using Digital Photo Professional to process RAW images captured with the following TS-E lenses: TS-E 17mm f/4L, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO, or TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.
  • Support will be added to fix a phenomenon* in which standard exposure may not be obtained, or an irregular exposure may result, when Silent LV (Live View) shooting with the following TS-E lenses: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO, or TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.
  • Support for Exif 2.31 will be added.
*This phenomenon occurs when tilt or shift is applied on a TS-E lens (TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO, or TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO) during LV shooting when Silent LV shooting is set (set to Mode 1 or Mode 2 on the menu). For this reason, until the firmware update, when performing viewfinder shooting or LV shooting, please shoot with the Silent LV shooting set to [Disable].

Thank you for using Canon products.
 
For EOS C300 Mark II/EOS C300 Mark II PL Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with firmware Version 1.0.6.1.00, we have confirmed a phenomenon in which, depending upon the usage conditions, the camera freezes when a VPG 130 CFast card is used simultaneously with a non VPG130 CFast card.
 
Firmware Version 1.0.7.1.00 (or later) resolves this phenomenon.
 
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to customers, and we ask for your ongoing patience.
 
Phenomenon
 
When a VPG130 CFast card is used simultaneously with a non VPG130 CFast card the camera may freeze. If the camera freezes, even if the live view image is displayed, all buttons and switches, including the POWER switch, will no longer respond, and the footage will not be recorded on the cards. (The time code and the recording indicator may continue to work.)
 
The camera can be released from the freeze condition by detaching it from the power supply (or removing the battery).

New Firmware Delivers Enhanced Digital Cinema Camera Connectivity and Improved Shooting-Assist Functions for HDR Video
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., April 20, 2017 – Demonstrating Canon’s continued commitment to supporting the digital cinema and television broadcasting industries, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that its parent company, Canon Inc. and Canon Marketing Japan Inc., will make available free firmware upgrades for three of its professional 4K displays—the DP-V1710, DP-V2410 and DP-V2420 in June 2017.
 
New features include:
 
  • Enhanced connectivity with Canon digital cinema cameras
The new firmware updates permit 4K RAW video captured using the EOS C700 or the EOS C700 GS PL (scheduled to be released July 2017) to be viewed directly on the display using only a 3G-SDI cable, without the need for an external transitional device. The firmware also makes possible the acquisition of all image data from video captured using the EOS C700, EOS C700 GS PL as well as the EOS C300 Mark II, enabling the display of image setting values from the connected camera and metadata.
 
Furthermore, these updates enable the display of the cinema aspect ratio 2.39:1 for specialized shooting using a digital cinema camera equipped with an anamorphic lens. The addition of these new features delivers enhanced user convenience when confirming images during shooting
 
  • Improved connectivity with ARRI digital cinema cameras
Thanks to these new firmware updates, users can simply connect an ARRI digital cinema camera to the DP-V1710, DP-V2410 or DP-V2420 4K Professional Display Models and view LOG C video in HDR. It is also no longer necessary to add an LUT to confirm video, for improved ease of use.
 
  • Expanded shooting-assist functions for HDR video
The new updates make possible the display of 4K video in both HDR and SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) simultaneously, using a vertical split-screen mode. What’s more, the updates make possible the downscaling and parallel display of 4K video as two separate images, enabling side-by-side comparisons of HDR and SDR images or HDR images and images with HDR shooting-assist functions applied.
 
Additionally, colors can now be overlaid on HDR video, with the color depending on the actual luminance of the video area, allowing for the visual confirmation of luminance distribution.

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.
