Canon 5D MKIII users it’s time to update your firmware to version 1.2.1. What does this major firmware update include? Well you’ll need to keep reading after the jump.
- Uncompressed HDML output with simultaneous LCD display and recording to CF or SD cards.
- Cross-Type autofocus for apertures as small as f/8
You’ll be able to make use of improved autofocus performance even with a f/5.6 lens and a 1.4x extender or an f/4 lens with a 2x extender.
For the video buffs out there the firmware update lets you output an uncompressed YCbCR 4:2:2 feed to an external recorder, enabling you to pick your own codecs and frame rates, while also eliminating arbitrary limits on record time.
