**FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR THE Canon 550D/T2i

Just noticed the firmware update from the news on July 4th.

Re: **FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR THE Canon 550D/T2i

I noticed someone had mentioned earlier in one of the threads that there was a updated firmware for the 550D, and on checking the Canon site, they have indeed released version 1.08.

I just flashed to it myself, supposedly fixes some minor issue when shooting video.

Installing the firmware BTW does not erase any custom settings you may have made.

Strangely, I noticed my 2 month old 550D had firmware 1.06 installed, so I don't know what happened to version 1.07. I checked the Canon site a few weeks ago, and they had no updated firmware for the 550D.

What firmware was originally installed on your camera's. ?

Yes it would nice to see a option added to disable it, though in fairness, it's only slightly noticable on mine.

Any members out there have version 1.07 installed. ? just wondering how come 1.07 was never on the Canon site, unless it never existed of course...lol

Any Movie updates -->

Are worthwhile, though I'd rather feature additions to bugfixes - Manual ISO, improved CDAF, manual Mic level (or at least some control over audio) etc would be nice ........ I'll wait to see if there are any side effects before updating..

Wonder why there isn't any firmware update available when I go to the USA Canon product page?

Manual ISO is already there

Re: another 1.06 now 1.08

Another 1.06 to 1.08 here also. I figure if Canon will fix it if there is a problem. I do wish there was a 1.06 on the website to drop back to though.

I'm sure if any serious issue crops up, Canon will soon post up the 1.06 so we can go back to it.

I've taken quite a few shots and a few video's since updating this morning, and I've not found any issues with 1.08 so far anyway.

It look's like most of us had our camera's come with version 1.06, same on a couple other forums, so what happened to the 1.07 I wonder.... hmmm... wierd.

Cant verify but feels a bit more crisp on still focus...

Need to do some testing...

Placebo? I noticed the same thing. Not more accurate focus, just a notch quicker.

Feels marginally faster on mine too. At least a bit less hunting. Also AI servo seems a bit more sensitive. Could be placebo though, or not.

Why isn't there a change log?

Normally with most product updates I see, there is a change log to advise exactly what has been added or changed.

All I can find for this firmware is Fixes a bug in Movie Mode.

It doesn't say what bug, or give any more information!

I feel like a mushroom.
