Canon 7D Firmware Update

Finally ! Here is what coming, and here is where to get it on the official canon download page. Its even 10.8 compaitible ! Manual audio and file naming are probably the key features anyone shooting video will care about. Having done some in camera audio recording on a 5D mk3 a week ago it was ok, not great. The 7D audio inputs aren't as good, but for feeding a clean reference track or stuff hits the fan backup its good enough.

  • Manual audio level adjustment in movie recording (yippee!)
  • File name customization (similar to 5D3)
  • Improved maximum burst for RAW images (up to 25)
  • Maximum Auto ISO setting (ISO 400-6400)
  • GPS compatibility
  • Time zone settings
  • Faster scrolling of magnified images
  • Quick control screen during playback
  • In-camera RAW image editing
  • In-camera Image Rating
  • In-camera JPEG resizing
