Canon 40D Firmware 1.1.0 and 1.1.1

Posted by KC on December 19, 2008 in Camera, Photography |

It has been discussed and post in lots of webboard for weeks.  However, it hasn’t been released to the public yet.  The Canon 40D firmware 1.1.0 (then later 1.1.1) still not appears on official Canon support download but those who went to service center all got the camera back with 1.1.1.  Until K.Ber8 got the 1.1.1 firmware from Sathorn Service Center and distribute in this post.  There is no document what has been updated but new version always good, right?

Those who want to try it can download directly from here.  At least please leave some comment to let me know that there is still people interesting.

WARNING: Please upgrade firmware at your own risk.   At least mine works.

UPDATE (Jan 20): Now it is official.  Please see the release note and download the firmware from here

UPDATE (Jan 28): Remove the local file by Canon’s request.  Please use the official link here instead.

    Still no chance to test it… And haven’t seen document about 1.1.1 on the net yet.

  • Jerry Brendle says:

    What the heck is this update supposed to “fix” or add? I’ll be darned if I’m going to do this to my perfectly working 40D till I get it from Canon, not some “who knows what” website!

  • KC says:

    I see your point Jerry. So please do it at your own risk. But mine works fine on 1.1.1 for week now.

    I think it corrects a problem with the display of certain Korean language characters on the LCD. Might be more but I couldn’t see any diff. Very worthwhile update for Koreans.

  • Bobby Bonehead says:

    freakin’ nuts to screw around with firmware from an unknown source.

    Adds new meaning to the phrase “use at your own risk”

    I think dustremovedata is new.
    It tells you Collects data for dustremoving with software
    see manual. ( maybe i translate bit strange i have it standing in dutch)

    That option is in my eye’s new.

    From Canon firmware page

    Firmware update Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fixes and improvements.

    1. Fixes a malfunction that in rare occurrence causes a low battery indication to be displayed when using the EF 85mm F1.2L II USM lens. Depending on the battery check timing of the camera, the battery level displayed on the camera’s LCD data panel may shows Battery will be exhausted soon or Battery must be recharged, even though the battery capacity is sufficient.
    2. Fixes a malfunction that in rare occurrence causes an Err 06 Self Cleaning Sensor malfunction to appear on the camera’s LCD monitor and LCD data panel, even when the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating normally. This message may appear depending on the timing of when the camera is switch to the ON position.
    3. Fixes a malfunction that prevents correct colors from being printed when direct printing. RAW images captured using the camera’s custom Picture Styles (Emerald, etc.), which have been downloaded from Canon’s Web site and registered under User Def. 2 or User Def. 3.
    4. Modifies the level of subject brightness that causes the AF-assist beam to fire when using an external Speedlite.
    5. Enables an external flash connected to the camera’s synchro terminal to fire even when the camera’s built-in flash is popped up.

    Version 1.1.1 firmware is for EOS 40D cameras with firmware up to Version 1.1.0. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.1.1, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
