Firmware changes

Firmware version 1.0.8 incorporates the following fixes.

  • Fixes a phenomenon in which captured images may become overexposed when using the camera's built-in flash or an external Speedlite in combination with the lenses listed below:*
    a) EF300/4 L IS USM
    b) EF28-135/3.5-5.6 IS USM
    c) EF75-300/4-5.6 IS USM
    d) EF100-400/4.5-5.6 L IS USM

Firmware version 1.0.8 is for cameras with Firmware Version 1.0.5. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.0.8, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Are the previous versions of firmware included in version 1.0.9? Yes, the improvements from the previous version are included.


And, if you've never done a firmware upgrade, here's a how to video that was done for an earlier release. No difference with this version other than the 60D uses a different card.
