Canon EOS-5D Mark II Firmware 2.0.3 released

In case you missed it, the upgraded firmware for the Canon EOS–5D Mark II that was announced recently was made available yesterday. Version 2.0.3 of the firmware has been in development for a few months now and adds a 24p (24 frames per second) option for a more film–like output. The 30fps version has been tweaked to conform to industry standards, which is actually 29.97fps.

Audio recording is now at 48KHz, up from 44.1KHz, along with the option to manually adjust the recording level.

Here’s the download page for firmware v2.0.3, but be sure to check the upgrade instructions (PDF) beforehand.

Lumix LX3 Firmware 1.1

If you’re one of those (like me!) who joined the mad rush for a Panasonic Lumix DMC–LX3 this Christmas season, you’d want to upgrade it to the latest firmware, now at version 1.1. Not that there was anything wrong with the older firmware, but updates like this one make sure everything is right with your device. It takes just a few minutes to finish the update and all you need is an SD card and a fully charged battery. And your LX3 of course.
