Canon 5D Mk-III Firmware update (v1.2.1) for the famous EOS 5D digital DSLR is one of the most Extensive Firmware Updates published and Now Available.

The Canon 5D3 Firmware update (v1.2.1) was first announced in October 2012, (Firmware version 1.2.1) for the famous Canon EOS 5D Mark III digital DSLR, will allow users to output a clean HDMI feed.

This Canon 5D3 firmware update allows users to record uncompressed (YCbCr 4:2:2, 8 bit) video to an external recorder or display it on an external monitor during the video-capture. This puts the Mark III in line with several Nikon SLRs, which are able to output clean HDMI feeds, such as the D800 and D4. This firmware eliminates one of the key (video) disadvantages (up until now) for the Mark III; which has been this extra HDTV Video information that is outputed alongside the Live-View image when using HDMI out terminal; This formerly made the HDTV Video output data unusable for actual recording purposes.

This Canon 5D3 Firmware update also includes a tweak to the AF system, which enables the use of the center point at f/8. Prior to this firmware update, the center-point was only available on the 5D Mark III with maximum apertures up to f/5.6.

This Canon 5D3 Firmware update will be of most use by Sports and Wildlife photographers who rely on accurate and rapid performance when using telephoto lenses with Canon Extenders being used on various lenses. (See compatibility chart below.)

Canon claims that the new firmware will allow photographers to use the EF 600 f/4 lens and a 2x extender, getting an effective focal length of 1200mm at f8, with accurate and rapid AF performance. A detailed list of improvements caused by the installation of firmware version 1.2.1 is as follows.

✔ Uncompressed HDMI output is now enabled.

✔ Enables the center AF point to autofocus when the camera is used with Canon EF lens/extender combinations whose combined maximum aperture is f/8.

✔ Improves the speed of the camera’s acquisition of focus when using a Canon Speedlite’s AF-assist beam.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor may freeze and display Err 70 or Err 80 when a still photo is taken during Live View or in movie shooting mode.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon that may occur when the continuous shooting priority setting is enabled for multiple exposures, such that, after the sixth image is taken, there is a slight pause before the remainder of the sequence is completed.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the viewfinder display shows incorrect information during AEB shooting.

✔ Communication with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter has been improved.

✔ When images have been successfully transferred with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter through the FTP protocol, an “O” will be displayed. When images have not been successfully transferred with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter through the FTP protocol, an “X” will be displayed.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera may not function properly when an Eye-Fi card is used.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the focal length value listed in the Exif information is not displayed correctly for images shot with the EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM lens.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the lens firmware cannot be updated properly.

✔ Corrects errors in the Arabic language menu.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera changes the AF microadjustment value to -8.

✔ Fixes a phenomenon in which the on-screen guidance cannot be fully displayed when setting the maximum limit value for the “Setting the ISO Speed Range for Auto ISO” option.
