Canon EOS 7D DSLR Firmware Update Goes Live, Improves Image Quality

April 16, 2010, By Atul Roach

Agreed that all those great Cannon DSLRs you posses are top-notch devices in their respective segments but, you still need to upgrade them from time to time to experience an even better quality. Update 1.2.1 has finally arrived for the owners of the Canon EOS 7D DSLR and it is time they get it running on their devices.

The particular firmware update promises to offer optimized programme shift when the EOS 7D DSLR is set on auto mode and also when a user is trying to correct vertical magenta-colored banding. The banding was a concern that was reported to appear in still images while the camera was functioning in the recording mode.

The update will also ensure that 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 are both extended.

What is interesting to know is that guys who already tried running the firmware update on their EOS 7D DSLRs are reporting an improved image quality. [via: TFTS]
