Canon Sneaks Out Firmware Update For C100's

There wasn't much announcement about this but Canon release a firmware update for the C100. For standard cameras its 1.0.4.100 and 2.0.4.100 for C100's with the continuous focus update.

Canon Batteries Required !

I had a generic battery in the camera with firmware 1.0.3.100 installed. I went to do the update on below on the screen was the message "Check Battery" ! The battery was fine, its canon firmware trying to lock you into using their batteries if you do the update. Not much you can do.

What Does 1.0.4.100 Do ?

Firmware Version 1.0.4.1.00 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.
1. Compatibility with the Canon RC-V100 Remote Controller (expected to be available in June 2014) has been added.
2. Peripheral illumination correction data has been added for the [CN-E35mm T1.5 L F] EF Cinema lens and the [EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM] EF lens.
3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the EF Cinema lens' F number was incorrectly displayed.

Note:
Firmware Version 1.0.4.1.00 is only for EOS C100 cameras without the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade. If the EOS C100 camera has had the DAF Feature Upgrade applied, please download Firmware Version 2.0.4.1.00.
