Canon has released Firmware Version 188.8.131.52.00 for the EOS C100 Cinema Camera (with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied). The new update fixes a phenomenon in which, when specific lenses (EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM / EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM) are attached to EOS C100 (Dual Pixel CMOS AF) cameras running Firmware Version 184.108.40.206.00, the image stabilization mechanism does not operate even when the lens’ IS switch is in the ON position.
Please Note: Firmware Version 220.127.116.11.00 is ONLY for EOS C100 cameras which have Firmware Version 18.104.22.168.00 – 22.214.171.124.00 with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied.
You can download Firmware 126.96.36.199.00 from the Canon website, here.
After the Firmware update has been performed, the camera’s menu settings and Custom Picture settings will be reset. Canon recommends that users save their menu and Custom Picture settings as settings data to an SD card, separate from the one that will be used to carry out the update, before starting update operations. This saved data can be loaded into the camera and the settings can be changed after the update has been completed.
