And I can personally vouch that AF is MUCH, MUCH improved. Indoor AF lag cut down in half. AF in good light easily achieved in <0.5 seconds and accurate.

I have restored faith in Canon. :lol:

Well, spurred to check (against all hope) for a related G5 firmware update, I was I did finally get around to updating my firmware from 1.0.0.0 to the 2.0.0.0 posted over a year ago at BeBit. Supposedly, it only adds PictBridge support. I did notice that I now get audible feedback on focus and exposure readings - if everything's "OK", I get a double beep, otherwise a single beep. Don't know if this is new (the update process wipes out all your settings, so maybe I somehow had it turned off) but I'm pretty sure it is (and its nice).

I wonder if there are any other hidden treasures in there....

Though, I do know from shooting today that the autofocus is as slow as ever, especially in macro mode... :roll:

That sounds nice... *beep-beep*. I suppose it resets file numbers too?

I've never done this. They warn you that the camera can become inoperable of something goes wrong. Should I worry? ?!

Oddly (and happily), no, the file number stayed on track.

I was on pins and needles during the whole process. The idea of having a $500 paper weight wasn't too appealing. ?! Once I got the process going, there are all these warnings - don't turn off the power, don't open the CF card door, don't touch a thing! I sat there the whole time, holding it in my hands, afraid to move. :)

Then, it says if it goes for more than five minutes, that something's wrong. After about 3, I started sweating. But finally, after about three and a half minutes it shut down, and finished successfully.

I don't know how the first people to apply the 300D hacked firmware did it!

But I hope they're just over-stating the potential dangers. I wouldn't worry, but make sure you follow the steps closely.

Probably. What happens if it goes wrong? Can they mend it?  :o

BTW they say Canon can do it for you, but I guess that comes at a price and maybe you have to send the camera away.

File numbers are all I care about really. Should I dare? "A beep, a beep! A camera for a beep!"
