7DM2 Firmware 1.0.4 out in the wild

I just bought a grey-market 7DM2 from getitdigital and it arrived with firmware 1.0.4, a version that hasn't officially been announced yet. Here is a snapshot of the firmware version plus a full walk-through of the menu system.

Re: 7DM2 Firmware 1.0.4 out in the wild

Do you know where this camera came from? Or which canon is responsible for it?

Re: 7DM2 Firmware 1.0.4 out in the wild

I'm pretty happy with Canon's tune up of my 7D2 but I'll gladly take more. Lets hope this is what it is about. No one really knows for sure until Canon puts it on their site and explains what the update/s are about.

I don't but it arrived with the HDMI output set to PAL so I assume it came from Europe.

I thought the current firmware was 1.0.2?  Did we skip something?  I can't check mine, as it is at Canon (for the second time) to address focusing issues (both one-shot and Servo).  The first trip fixed all but focus issues with 17-55.  Hopefully, they can make the camera work with that lens, as it is my workhorse.

Nope. No updates from Canon since the release and it always was 1.0.2.

Re: 7DM2 Firmware 1.0.4 out in the wild

I went though this video and found some changes

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?p=17551867

Red menus - sub menu #5 which is the movie section.

1.0.2 has 6 sub menus and 1.0.4 displays only 5.

Sub menu 3 - Multiple exposure and HDR modes gone???

Sub menu 5 Live View Shoot renamed to Movie Servo AF. Continuous AF renamed to Movie Rec Quality.

Aspect Ratio and Expo. simulation are gone. Now there are Movie AF Servo speed ad Movie Servo AF track sens.

I'm puzzled about the Multiple exposure and HDR. I can't see where Canon may have moved it to. I can't imagine they have been removed.

The entire sub menu 4 is missing. Red-eye, Interval, Bulb, Anti flicker, Mirror lock up.

Got an answer for this.

"It's because the camera is in movie-mode LV. I used an external HDMI recorder to capture the menu output and couldn't get the body to output the menus to HDMI in any mode other than movie LV."

I'm still looking for Multiple exposure and HDR? On 1.0.2 they are under dust delete data in sub menu 3.

Today is the first time I have ever turned on the movie mode so when I seen the different menus in the video I wondered what was going on. If I had see those menus before it would have made sense. I see no other changes in the menus and everything looks the same. Sorry everyone.

If it is from a different market, Firmware 1.0.4 there might not be the same as 1.0.4 here.

Re: 7DM2 Firmware 1.0.4 out in the wild

No..from my understanding when canon release a new firmware, they are the same worldwide.. But sometimes the new one is out there brfore the official release especially when you send your camera for service etc..

if this mfirmware is for real..it means we will get soon a new firware from canon

Yes I have seen that before. Camera's go in and get new FM before it is officially released.

According to CR

Let's take some bets on whether we see the words auto (related to focus), focus or AI Servo anywhere in the explanations.
