I managed to upgrade my firmware using another computer.

I have to say the editing features are quite nice. It means you can toy with things like white balance to see the effects! It's something I didn't think I'd use, but it looks like it will be handy.

Anybody try the new firmware with the GP-E2 GPS unit yet? I have the GP-E2 unit, but have not upgraded my firmware yet. Might do so tonight in advance of a trip. I really want to see how that thing works.

Upgrade first. No point in learning something which immediately changes shape.
Make sure you have the appropriate user's manual. One that describes the features of 2.0.0 firmware is available for download, but is most likely not in the box with the camera.

I can't find the new manual anywhere. Anyone got it yet?

That's old news by now, but if you go to Canon Singapore you can find the 1.0.7 update for the WFT-E5 network grip here (external link).

thanks for the links! :)
appreciate it.

Just to be on the safe side, did anyone check that the RAW files are still recognised with lightroom or with camera raw using the new firmware and that no update is needed on the software side.

(I don't think the final RAW files changed, but just checking before I update my camera...)

From what other people have said I think the max 25 is based on a certain card speed. With faster cards it is possible to clear the buffer faster and therefore increase the max burst...

No problems here, LR 4.1 imported images shot with 2.0.0 just as normal.

Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

Before I upgrade, can someone confirm that the md5 checksum for the .fir file is..

MD5: ba356e4c566b8b59e25d75​bb5f7c796d

Not sure why Canon don't publish this rather than just the file size.

Cheers.

After having upgraded the firmware across many cameras through the years, it is almost 2nd nature now to just download, unzip, copy file to root of card, and put it in a camera with a fully-charged battery. I believe the upgrade process within the camera will also do a preliminary check of the file with its header to validate the file.

With today's more secure download tools, I no longer really have had a need to check checksums of files, as many tools already do that to provide guaranteed delivery to the end user, like FTP, browser support, etc.
