p.1 #1 · Latest 5D MK1 Firmware?


Mine is running 1.1.1 and it's acting a little funny. Wanted to see if there was a more current firmware, but from what I have found I think this is the latest. Thanks!

What is the problem? The reason I am asking is I recently bought a 5D and it seems to act a little odd at times...but when I delve into the instruction manual I see it is working normally depending on various other settings or modes it is in.

I have had several panic moments since buying it but all were unfounded.

You have the latest...and last...firmwear.

Well, two weddings ago I was shooting and the mirror locked up. Had to pull the battery to get it loose. Yesterday's wedding, I was going through shots and the screen went dark, the lens autofocused, and it took two shots. Never touched the shutter release lol

I updated mine to the latest firmware about 6 months ago and haven't noticed any issues.

It's enough to freak me out about not having a backup! Just trying to decide if I should upgrade and make the 5d the backup or not

I got a 5D recently as a back up to my 40D...the 5D is ok but I think a second 40D would have been a good choice...cheaper.....better technology...better AF.

Some people rave over the 5D IQ but in my experience there is not much in it when compared to the 40D. I basically went for the 5D so I had FF to match my 35mm film bodies...made setting up and lens decisions easier.

My buddy I shot as a second for at the wedding shoots a 40D. I'm just in a tight place because I want to grab a body that has video capability because I want to mess with it.
