Firmware Update Roundup for Canon, Ricoh, and Samsung Cameras 0

It pays to be mindful of the firmware updates that are released for your shooter so you can take full advantage of your camera. Aside from bug fixes, these upgrades add new features that increase your camera’s functionality.

Canon's EOS-1D Mark IV

Canon has released version 1.1.1 for the camera, which optimizes the camera’s exposure accuracy when using EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM lenses, both of which are scheduled for release in June 2012. Using the camera without updating the firmware will cause the images to become overexposed.
