New Canon EOS 5D Mark II firmware 2.0.7 released

Canon has released firmware version 2.0.7 for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. You can find the download on this Canon Japan site. My thanks to @zackmctee for the tip!


Redrock Micro


This firmware update (Version 2.0.7) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

Fixes a phenomenon in which the aperture exhibits abnormal movement when shooting movies in manual exposure mode and Aperture Priority AE (Av mode) using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).
Fixes a phenomenon in which the exposure level shown in the LCD panel differs from what is shown in the viewfinder when shooting still images in manual exposure mode.
Fixes a phenomenon in which the Wireless File Transmitter (WFT-E4 or WFT-E4 II) may not automatically power off when used for FTP transfers.
These phenomenon only occur with the Version 2.0.4 and Version 2.0.3 firmware.

The Version 2.0.7 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.4. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.7, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

    I got the 2.0.7, and it’s 9.5megs, not the 9.7megs it supposedly should be… I will wait to hear from others b4 using it.

    I did the firmware update despite the file supposedly not being the right size. So far, everything is fine.

    Important tip! You need to right click on the file name (5d200207.fir) and look at it’s properties where it shows 9,754,348 bytes. I was also confused at first, but after confirming the size, downloading it, and updating the camera, everything seems fine so far.

    Upgraded from 1.2.4 to 2.0.7. All looks fine. Great camera. Now if I could only upgrade my ability to take better photos…

      Stuttering is caused by the CMOS sensor. It will ALWAYS occur on this camera. Don’t want stuttering? 5 Options:
      1) Buy a videocam with CCD sensor NOT DSLR
      2) Don’t pan so damn fast!
      3) Stop buying cheapass memory cards (get a descent Extreme II 60MB/S or higher
      4) Learn to correct it with software
      5) Buy The Foundry plugin for correcting this

        @ Alx –

        CMOS sensors do not cause “stuttering”; but it does cause the “jello” effect due to the method on how it captures / displays an image.

        Stutter is when there are dropped / missing frames.

        Judder is the effect of panning too fast; especially when shooting at a low progressive rate (i.e., 24p, 30p). Though you won’t see it when shooting something @ 60p….hence the beauty of shooting 720/60p.

    2.0.7. and still no slow motion on EOS 5D!! Damn it! Hope at least Canon’s gonna do a 50fps/60fps for the 1080p size for the next upgrade!

      Don’t be getting your hopes up! I don’t have any inside info, but I don’t think we’ll be getting that on the 5D2. Expect it for a new camera or the 5D3 tho.

    I can’t update my camera with “eos5d2207″. After I press on a Firmware option, on a screen apears this note” Memory card containing firmware ir required to update”
    Does anyone have the same problem?
