Canon just posted a firmware update for the EOS 7D, bringing the firmware version to 1.2.1
Changes in this firmware seem to be mostly small fixes; here are the 4 improvements listed by Canon:
- Extends the timing at which the high temperature warning indicator is displayed and the timing of automatic shut down of the camera due to a rise in internal temperature during Live View or EOS Movie functions.
- Optimizes program shift when the ISO setting of the camera is set to AUTO.
- Corrects a misspelling in the French-language menu.
- Corrects a phenomenon in which vertical magenta-colored banding appears in still images taken in movie-shooting mode.
Unfortunately this update does not bring to the 7D some of the same improvements we recently saw in the latest firmware made available for the EOS 5D MarkII. We can only hope that Canon brings some of those refinements down to the 7D.
