Firmware 2.0.8 for Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Canon has released a firmware update for its very successful EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera, fixing a number of bugs related to movie capture, live view, the auto power-off function, the ST-E2 flash transmitter and the MR-14EX and MT-24EX Macro Ring Lights.

Firmware Version 2.0.8 includes the following fixes:

1. Fixes a phenomenon in which movies are not taken at the shooting mode registered in the user’s settings if a shooting mode Aperture priority (or Shutter priority) is registered in any of the camera’s user settings (C1, C2, C3) and the user attempts to shoot a movie.

2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the shutter will not release when pressing the shutter button when the auto power off function is set to “on”.

3. Fixes a phenomenon in which overexposure occurs when shooting a Live View shooting simulation with the ISO speed set to L.

4. Fixes a phenomenon in which the settings of the Speedlite transmitter ST-E2 revert to the default settings when both the camera and the ST-E2 are set to auto power off.

5. Fixes a phenomenon in which the Macro Ring Lite (MR-14EX, MT-24EX) and slave flash do not sync while shooting wirelessly.
