Canon has just released a new firmware for the Canon EOS 6D. Firmware Version 1.1.4 incorporates the following fixes:
- Fixes a phenomenon in which some images cannot be transferred to mobile devices running the EOS Remote app.
- Corrects an error in the German language Feature Guide.
- Corrects an error in the Korean language Feature Guide.
Firmware Version 1.1.3 fixes a phenomenon in which the Date/Time/Zone settings screen appears on the LCD display, after the user has already configured these settings. The values for the Date/Time settings may reset if the backup functions which retain those values do not perform properly.
Canon recommends that even if the camera does not exhibit this phenomenon currently, it may in the future so a firmware upgrade is advised.
Just four days after arch-rival Nikon announced what it billed as the ‘smallest and lightest full frame DSLR’ – the D600, Canon has revealed its own contender – the EOS 6D.
The 20.2MP EOS 6D is a full frame version of the EOS 60D – with very similar controls, layout and dimensions. A bit lighter than the Nikon D600, it also has Wi-Fi and GPS built-in.
