This is the much anticipated camera firmware upgrade! Firmware 2.0.0 for Canon EOS 7D has finally been rolled out

What will be improved in this upgrade?

For me, the most useful function would be better burst mode buffer, faster viewing, and the in-camera RAW processing function.

For more details in black and white, you can visit the EOS 7D Firmware Upgrade page.

If you are based in Hong Kong, you can download the English or Chinese firmware from here. Otherwise, you will need to check the Canon page for your country; however, I've downloaded the USA English version too and I don't see any difference in the file size of the firmware file, which means, there should be no difference.

I love my 7D more and more!
