Does anyone know if the new 7D software effects support for 1/250sec shutter sync speed with the new Canon 600EX-RT Speedlight in RF wireless mode? The Canon web site says that when using RF wireless mode on the 600EX-RT, the max shutter sync speed on pre-2012 cameras is decreased by one stop. I have read owners of 600EX-RT speedlights that say this is either a misprint or corner case, as 1/250s shutter sync works fine for them in RF sync mode.
Marcin Moscicki: How on earth can firmware change buffer size that drastically? I would say it had been crippled to start with, but it doesn't make sense in the top apsc model.
Canon said that the new firmware did a better job of memory buffer management which allowed a deeper buffer. Their terminology is off - on the Canon Web site they say they improved the 'rate', but the rate is the same - 8 fps. The burst length is what significantly improved.
AndyGoris1: How about support for some of the new features in the 600EX strobe, like auto-filter color detect or 5 zones?
I meant 5 channels. I can't wait to install the update. Thanks, Canon!
