Firmware update improves Canon's 5D
LAKE SUCCESS, NY — Canon ( has released a new firmware update for its EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera. The update significantly improves the camera’s performance and usability, and enables the use of uncompressed HDMI output support, making possible more efficient video editing and monitoring procedures. Additionally, the upgrade supports the advanced needs of photographers through improved AF performance when capturing still images.

When shooting video, HDMI output makes possible the recording of HD uncompressed video data (YCbCr 4:2:2, 8-bit) from the EOS 5D Mark III to an external recorder via the camera’s HDMI terminal. This, in turn, facilitates the editing of video data with minimal image degradation. Video being captured can be displayed on an external monitor, enabling realtime, on-site monitoring of high-definition video during shooting.
