Canon lovers have a reason to rejoice since the most important Canon firmware update was released for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

The version 1.2.1 firmware for the camera was initially announced by the camera manufacturer last October and it will give users the capability of producing a clean HDMI feed. However the firmware resulted to extra information being produced together with the Live View image when the HDMI out is used. Footages produced through this method will not be usable.

The latest Canon firmware update gives users the capability of recording uncompressed video into an external recorder. They can also display the video into an external monitor while recording. This means the Canon EOS 5D Mark III will be in the same level as the Nikon D4 and D800 when it comes to producing clean HDMI feeds.

The AF system will also be enhanced by the latest Canon firmware update making it possible for the center point to be used at f/8. This will be great news for wildlife and sports photography enthusiasts who require optimum performance while using their telephoto lenses. Previously, the Mark III can only use the center point at a maximum aperture of f/5.6.

The update will also make it possible for the EF 600 f/4 lens to be used by photographers with a 2X extender, increasing its effective focal length to 1200 mm without affecting the auto-focus performance.

The latest Canon firmware update is already available through the website of the camera manufacturer.
