Welcome to the Cinema 5D News Section.
October 12, 2009
I would like to welcome you to the news section of Cinema 5D. We will provide you with daily information on all things HDSLR. There will be a daily news article and a weekend edition with product reviews and interviews with people influential in the industry. This weekend we have Brian Valente from Red Rock Micro.
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jared Abrams and I have worked in motion picture camera for over fifteen years. I work as a still photographer and camera operator. I currently shoot with a Canon EOS 7D. I live in Hollywood, California.
Enough about me, here is the news.
Canon Rumors Lives up to its name.
Canon Rumors has lived up to its name by posting a photo of a possible firmware update for the new Canon EOS 7D. After speaking with Nolan from Canon USA I can safely say that there is no firmware update for the Canon EOS 7D as of yet for USA model cameras.
According to the canon rep, there may be differences in the firmware versions 1.0.7, 1.0.8, and 1.0.9 based on language updates alone. But this cannot be confirmed, as he is only able to speak for U.S.A. model cameras.
Any firmware updates will be available via the Canon website and should only be downloaded from a reliable source. Do not download firmware updates or anything else for that matter from an untested site.
Cinema 5D will be the first to provide you with reliable information on any new firmware updates in the future.
Cinema 5D will be announcing a contest to win free stuff! Look for that information this week, here at C5D News.
