1DX Firmware update

I just got my new 1DX in the mail, and I must say this camera is the real deal.  I checked Canon's website for firmware updates, and it said version 2.0.3 is available.  When I powered up my camera, the version that is currently loaded is 2.07.  So is the version on my camera a newer version than the 2.0.3?  Seems confusing to me?

Re: 1DX Firmware update

I can't help you, because I don't own a 1DX.

The fact that you're not getting a reply is living proof how, by throwing the 1D's into the same forum as all FF Canon cameras on earth, DPR has driven most 1D users to other, more friendly e-locations.

I hope this "bump" might lead to one of the dozen 1DX users still remaining here to help you out.

In the meanwhile, why not contact Canon, themselves about this?

All the best.

Re: 1DX Firmware update

This is not unusual. We've seen before that new firmware appears in new cameras before it becomes available for download.

I presume that it is a precaution in case there is an issue.

2.0.3 is the latest version available for download (mine's running that). But this Google-translated link describes a user in the same boat as you and suggests (without any evidence) that Canon occasionally put out a batch of cameras with a later firmware before releasing it for download generally:

I bought my second 1Dx less than two months ago… firmware is 2.0.3

Re: 1DX Firmware update

So you may have seen 2.07 is now released, however I have a problem in that all my saved settings from 2.03 will not load under 2.07.  Has anyone else having this problem. Please post to let me know incase its just my 1DX.

I can confirm that I can save and reload new settings using 2.07.

Help !!!!!!!!

Re: 1DX Firmware update

Found this on a german web site

http://www.dforum.net/showthread.php?p=2094156

* 1 These changes cameras can not read the "Camera Settings File" with firmware version 2.0.7, when it was created with cameras with Firmware Version 2.0.3 (or earlier) is installed. If the "Camera Settings File" need, create it after upgrading to firmware version 2.0.7.
