Hi Y'all!

Kindest regards!

Thanks for the heads up. Still hoping for a firmware update that will add a new custom function to turn the Direct Print button into a mirror lockup button. But then again, I know it will never happen.

Hi Max,

Is this something I have to do? LOL...Since I got the 5D my 30D has gotten a lot less use. The only time I use the 30D now is on either
my 300f/2.8 or 70-200f/4 to get that reach out of the lens. Maybe I should send it up to Sue anne to use for a while. She's been hinting...

Hi Keith!

the firmware does the following:

This firmware update incorporates the following additional functions and corrections.:

1. When making camera-direct prints, a semi-gloss paper can be newly selected in the camera settings.
2. Corrected the phenomenon wherein the displayed number of continuous shots that can be taken increases when images that have been taken are deleted.

This firmware update applies to cameras with firmware versions up to 1.0.4 installed. If your camera's firmware is already version 1.0.5, it is not necessary to perform this update.

...so... my guess is you don't bother about #1, and maybe you are *not* plagued by #2, then there is no real need to, unless there's something hidden...

(there *was* an update, can't remember which one and for what body, that did 'more than advertised' in the background )

...*my* 0.02...

My kindest regards,

Max@Home

PS: about sue anne, don't spoil her , but if *I* *had to* send my 20D to someone, then she would be *my* first thought too

(exchange it for her 350D, then you still have a 'backup', and when you need 'the reach' you are probably outdoors with decent enough light for ISO800 )

(...would be nice for her as for one the battery is the same as Pro1 etc... blahblah... )

I don't know about Canon, but Nikon almost always includes hidden fixes/stuff in their firmware upgrades, so I'd assume Canon sneaks in fixes for unacknowledged issues in their upgrades. Might as well upgrade the firmware; can't hurt, and if it does, your nearest Canon service center had better take care of it.
