Canon is rumored to release a software update for the EOS M in the following weeks, in order to address a few of the camera’s shortcomings.
Last month, Canon was rumored to release a new EOS M body this year, but nothing has come to fruition so far. Although there is still enough time until the “end of March” prediction, it appears that the company is focusing on something else. According to an inside source, Canon will launch a firmware update for the EOS M “soon”.
Canon EOS M firmware update to fix a couple or more issues
The source confirmed two fixes for the camera. One refers to autofocus performance, while the other refers to performance when lower contrast is involved. The mirrorless camera is reported to have some issues with autofocus tracking, therefore Canon has decided to fix those inconveniences. Both of these will be easily fixed with the new software update.
Previously, it was believed that the company was preparing a new EOS M body. However, it seems like the company is more focused on improving its current products. The update for the EOS M is not the only firmware upgrade expected by Canon camera users.
Everybody gets an upgrade!
The Canon 5D Mark III is having focusing issues when the Speedlight Assist Beam is in use. The 1D X is also having this problem and the camera maker will release an update in the near future to correct the slow focus issue on both shooters.
As for the EOS 1D C, Canon is looking to enhance 4K video recording performance. The camera is capable of capturing 4K videos at 23.976 frames per second and the company is targeting a 25fps framerate. A recent product advisory has confirmed that the 1D C camera will get its sought-after firmware upgrade soon.
