Canon releases firmware v1.0.5 for EOS 40D  
Monday, November 19, 2007 | by Rob Galbraith
Canon today has released firmware v1.0.5 for the EOS 40D. The new firmware is meant to correct an incompatibility between Adobe's Camera Raw 4.2, Lightroom 1.2 and CR2 files shot with v1.0.4 installed in the camera. It also addresses a file numbering error, changes photo playback behaviour during remote shooting and addresses several minor bugs.
 
The full list of changes, as described on the firmware download page, is below.
 
Q: What has been changed in verson 1.0.5 of the firmware?
 
A: It includes the following improvements and fixes:
  1. When playing back images just after recovering from Auto Power Off, the display now shows the last image played back.
    If the camera is automatically turned off while playing back images, the last image played back will now be shown if the power comes back on and playback operations are resumed.
  2. During remote shooting, images are now displayed on the camera's LCD monitor right after they are taken.
    When using remote shooting with a CF card in the camera, when transferring images to the PC and CF card, the images taken will now be displayed on the camera's LCD monitor immediately after they are taken. For information on how to set the length of time the images are displayed after they are taken, please refer to the instruction manual.
  3. Corrects a warning message in Korean that appears when updating the firmware.
  4. Corrects errors in the Spanish menu screens.
    Corrects an error in the Spanish flash C.Fn:2-1.
  5. Corrects a phenomenon that prevented printing with some print systems.
  6. Corrects a rare phenomenon in which file numbers or image numbers were sometimes skipped.
 
Last week, Adobe released Camera Raw 4.3 and Lightroom 1.3, both of which included a change that enables v1.0.4-firmware EOS 40D CR2s to be processed. The change Canon has made in firmware v1.0.5 should mean that firmware v1.0.5 CR2s should be openable in both Camera Raw 4.2/Lightroom 4.2 and Camera Raw 4.3/Lightroom 4.3.
