Re: Firmware update woth it ?Don't you trust Canon?

I doubt it will work. The update program checks the current version before it does the firmware update (it did tell me what version I had before proceeding with the update). I suspect that the firmware detects a non-Canon flash and randomly disable the triggering on purpose!!! How else could be explained that it only works (or not work) randomly??

Sorry to hear about that. Lucky for me I held out from upgrading.

You can try to reinstall version 1.0.0.1 firmware and see if the
camera will accept it, if you still have a copy. If not, just ask
for it on the forum, I'm sure a few people still keep a copy and
can help you out.

After upgraded the latest firmware, my non-Canon flash can not be
triggered reliably any more. Out of the 10 shots, at least 3 or 4
will not fire. Before the firmware upgrade, my flash was triggered
reliably almost every shot. So much for the update. I should have
skipped it.
