Canon C100 cinema camera has been updated to firmware 188.8.131.52.00, which comes packed with two minor modifications over the previous version.
Canon has released the EOS C100 camera for videographers in 2012. The cinema shooter has now received a new and minor firmware update, which should correct a couple of issues troubling the users for a long time.
Canon C100 firmware update 184.108.40.206.00 now available for download
Canon C100 firmware update 220.127.116.11.00 can be downloaded right now. Users who will install it on their devices will notice that they will be able to use autofocus continuously with the iris set on the subject in the middle of the display when the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is attached to the shooter.
Subjects will be correctly exposed when the cinematographers are using the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens with the EOS C100. However, this cinema camera’s owners will also be able to use external audio devices in a proper way.
Canon has altered XLR terminal’s polarity balance, in order to better resemble the details found in the Instruction Manual. The ping configuration was a little different, thus causing confusion among videographers.
Overall, such firmware updates are always welcomed, as their show that companies remain committed to their products.
New update is supported by all operating systems
Users should be aware that some cameras may come packed with the latest software if they recently bought it. The company says that they should check the firmware version and if it says 18.104.22.168.00, then they should not install it once again.
As usual, the upgrade is compatible with major operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. An SD / SDHC card is required so that owners can transfer the correct files on the formatted storage solution and then insert it into the camera.
