Yeah that's kind of odd... although it's not to 'support' it in a mechanical functionality way apparently. Just so that the proper lens names are displayed in Exif. There don't seem to be updates for other EOS bodies yet so it must be a bug specific to XTi.

New Firmware for XTi/400D

This is straight from the Canon site





Firmware specification changes





This firmware update (Version 1.1.1) incorporates the following fixes and improvements.


  1. Adds detailed information about three new lenses.
  2. Polish has been added as a new display language in the menu screens.
The Version 1.1.1 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.1.0. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.1.1, it is not necessary to update the firmware.



And a little further down the page - this info:

Q: What has been changed in version 1.1.1 of the firmware?

A: The following fixes and improvements have been incorporated.

  1. Adds detailed information about three new lenses. Adds details about EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS, and EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM. This makes the correct lens names appear in Exif information and in printing when using PictBridge.
  2. Polish has been added as a new display language in the menu screens.
It is also worth noting that the update is cumulative so no need to apply older updates first.

It might also help to explain for some who may not understand that "cumulative" means that it includes all previous updates -- I can envision that a not-so-computer-literate individual could misinterpret that to mean you have to incorporate all prior updates before incorporating this update. This is an often asked question and it should be required memorization for all camera or computer, etc. owners -- whenever you flash the PROM/BIOS, you can't just selectively change pieces of it -- the whole thing is always overwritten, so there is no remaining memory of what may have previously been flashed. It is that way by design for various reasons -- the most fundamental probably being that starting from a clean slate minimizes memory requirements and also reduces configuration management to its simplest form. There is no earthly reason to make incremental changes to basic memory because the chunk of code is very small and, further, making incremental changes can only open the door to future configuration problems.

One other note: I have read in previous posts regarding memory updates that some folks worry about losing all of the personal settings that they have stored. Your personal settings are not stored on the same chip as the basic operating system memory so there is no need to worry about that. Your camera will not even have problems with the date and time as some have claimed (unless you remove the small button cell for more than several minutes).

Well, if you are Polish, it could be a big deal. Or, if you have one of the identified lenses and want the metadata to accurately show the lens being used, it might also be useful.

Rarely, will you find a BIOS update for a computer, printer, camera, etc. that is something to write home about for the majority of us. I have only had one instance of really needing a BIOS update -- when building up a computer system once, I could not get XP Professional SP2 to completely load -- it would allow all other O/S to load -- fortunately, the manufacturer had an update available, but I had pulled out what little hair I had still remaining before solving this problem -- I was insistent that the BIOS didn't need to be flashed until I was beat down to trying it as a last resort.

You need a card reader. Canon no longer supports firmware file transfer direct from computer to camera.

Not true. See method 2:

Q: How do I copy the downloaded firmware file to the CF card?
A:
Two methods of copying the downloaded firmware file are provided.

  1. If you have a CF card reader, please copy the firmware file to the CF card via a CF card reader.
  2. Please connect the camera and a personal computer with a USB cable, and copy the firmware file onto the CF card in the camera. Please use EOS Utility application bundled with the camera to copy the file. (Please use CF card of 64MB or more, 2GB or less, for this case.)
