Canon firmware update to enhance EOS 5D Mark III video workflow
A Canon firmware update for the EOS 5D Mark III will enhance shooting and improve video workflow, the company claims.
The new Canon firmware update – slated to be released for free download in April 2013 – enables HDMI output functionality, as well as improved AF performance for photographers shooting with telephoto lenses, Canon says.
The Canon firmware update will include a clean HDMI output which Canon says will enhance video editing and monitoring procedures, as well as the ability to output HD video data without any embedded icons or symbols from the Canon EOS 5D Mark III to an external recorder using the camera’s HDMI terminal. The update will also enable real time output to external monitors.
The new Canon EOS 5D Mark III firmware update will also improve AF performance. Canon says, “When using a lens and extender, resulting in a maximum f/8 aperture, the new firmware enables the camera to utilise the EOS 5D Mark III’s central dual cross-type focal points, currently only available up to an f/5.6 aperture.
“The new capabilities allow sports and nature photographers to use AF when getting closer to distant subjects, achieving precision detail when using telephoto lenses.”
