Canon updates EOS-1D X firmware to version 1.0.6

I think that Canon have now worked on the feedback they got from the many photographers who have tested the EOS-1D X at this summers sporting events – Euro 2012 and the Olympics. As a result Canon’s firmware engineers have come up with version 1.0.6 to address some issues. Of course it’s recommended for all EOS-1D X users to update their cameras.

EOS-1D X firmware 1.0.6 fixes

  • Fixes a phenomenon in which the AF Microadjustment cannot be correctly carried out.
  • Fixes a phenomenon such that when using the camera with combinations of the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM or EF200mm f/2L IS USM lenses and Extender EF 1.4x III or Extender EF 2x III, the images captured become back-focused.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which, when the camera is powered on in very dark environments (including instances when the lens cap or the body cap is attached), an Error 80 appears on the camera.
  • Fixes the following phenomenon, where if two CF cards are inserted into the camera and the “Standard” or “Auto switch card” setting is selected for the recording method [Record func+card/folder sel] and then one of the CF cards is removed and reinserted into the card slot. The card selected for recording and playing back images may be switched to the other CF Card.
  • Fixes a phenomenon in which the AF microadjustment value is not correctly displayed in the EXIF information of captured images.
  • Displays an “O” or “X” to indicate whether images have been successfully transferred through the FTP protocol when using the WFT-E6 Wireless File Transmitter.
