whats your opinions here,

i just contacted several Canon resellers, Canon only supplied updates for their Cinema line, no 5d3 with FULL HD OUT ever, this calls for law suites all over the globe, how selfish of them to market their own products against each other, will they ever make a decent camera for the price or was the 5d2 not a good enough sign before for them to open up and put the best camera out there?

So, the new firmware update this April as ignored by Canon,not cool.

Relax..

It's only 5-6 days in April..

Re: So where is the new 5d3 firmware update?

The new firmware update will be available, at no charge, in April 2013 from the Canon U.S.A. website and can be downloaded by end users or through Canon Factory Service Centers.

I think we still have a few more days left in April, no exact date was specified as far as I know.

Could that be because it may be coming later this month?

Okay, but who did you answer, as far as I can see your reply was to me. Look at the thread.

No one.  That is why there is no quote.

Yes - that is how it appears.

Will. If you hit the "Reply" or "Reply with quote" links below someones post, you are effectively replying to them.

You can see this is the case in the header of your post, just under the post title - where it says "In reply to ..."

To post without replying to a particular person (aside from the OP, of course), you need to go to the first post and select the "Reply to thread" link.

It's no big deal, but I thought I'd just post this to help people avoid confusion in theĀ future.

no

Canon confirmed that there is no firmware update for the 5d3, they are already preparing a 5d4, if you want HDMi out, assuming  on the 5d4 you can already record un compressed finally

Re: Relax already

i wish, but.......according to canon, no other firmware updates are due this month as long as they are aware of it,

maybe the whole firmware update was speculation?

so
