Re: Possible firmware bug 650D/T4i?

I have the same exact problem.  It hangs in Video mode.  Turning it off doesn't even work.  I was using a 18-135 STM.

I don't use much the video nor live viewing and never had a hang up in 3 months.  I decided to play with Video and it went bust on the first try.  The battery was freshly recharded, and it was used for the first time after being close to fully depleted.

The touch screen is still live, I can still zoom, move around the live image.  But I cannot change anything and all the other buttons go dead.  The lens is also depowered.  I removed the battery, put it back, took a few test pictures, back to video, hangs again!  I could repeat a few times.  No way to use the video mode.

I left the battery out for a few minutes and everything is now back to normal.

If this happens again, I will try switching lenses.

Can the lens firmware be upgraded too?
