Canon has recently launched a new firmware update for the Canon EOS 60D digital SLR, this update will bring your camera to firmware version 1.0.9 and brings some minor changes / fixes to to the camera.
Firstly and most unimportantly you will see that the “Art Filters” feature has disappeared, don’t worry though as it hasn’t been removed it has just been renamed to “Creative Filters”, this change only applies to Japanese versions of the camera.
Another of the fixes rectifies a pretty uncommon problem which occurs when “set to Quick Mode AF during Live View shooting immediately after capturing an image with the C.Fn II-1 Long exposure noise reduction setting set to [2: On] and a shutter speed setting of 5 seconds or more”, sometimes the camera would act abnormally, however now this shouldn’t be a problem.
Finally another minor problem should no longer exist, sometimes after Live View shooting and switching on the EOS Utility screen the camera would act abnormally, this has now been fixed.
You can download this new firmware update here, the full changelog and installation instructions can also be found via the same link.
