Canon EOS-7D Mk II Firmware 1.0.4 Available

Canon EOS-7D Mk II APS-C camera

As reported earlier, Canon USA has released a new firmware, Version 1.0.4 for the EOS-7D Mk II camera. The new firmware should hopefully fix the AF 'problems' I have encountered with the camera bought back in November 2014.

Firmware Version 1.0.4 incorporates the following fixes :

  • Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera’s AF function may not operate properly at a focal length of approximately 100mm when used with the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which, in rare instances, the reduction of the flicker effect cannot be achieved when in AI servo AF mode, despite the “Anti-flicker shoot” function being set to “Enable”.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which the Picture Style settings may not be applied to the captured image when the camera is set to custom shooting mode C1, C2 or C3.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which, in very rare cases, the first still image captured in live view mode may not record the correct date and time.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which, in very rare cases, image noise may appear in JPEG images when brightness or contrast is corrected by the Auto Lighting Optimizer function.

I have tested the new firmware 1.0.4 Canon released a few days ago. There is a discernible improvement, especially in AF @ f/8 but ..... Read my review of the camera to find out the whole story.
