New Firmware for the Canon 50D

Canon has just released new firmware for the Canon EOS 50D, a camera I still use and love.  Although it is uncommon for firmware to be updated for older cameras, I guess it becomes necessary when memory card technology evolves.

According to Canon, this update:

  1. Improves the writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.
  2. Fixes incorrect indications in the Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Arabic, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Thai and Turkish menu screens.
