Canon has released firmware version 1.1.3 for the Canon EOS 6D. The firmware update provides a relatively minor fix that “corrects the phenomenon where date/time settings reset.”
You can download the firmware update here on Canon’s website.
Recent rumors point to the possibility of a firmware update for the full frame Canon 6D. As the junior full frame shooter in Canon’s line-up, the 6D offers a lot of camera for a relatively affordable price point (it’s under $1800 at the moment).
B&H has the Canon 6D for $1,999 (reg. $2,099) and the Canon 6D kit with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS zoom lens for $2,499 (reg. $2,899). Both Canon 6D options include a Lowepro camera bag and a Transcend 32GB SDHC card. Check them out at the links below.
DxO Optics Pro 8.1.2 is now available with additional support for the Canon 6D, Sony RX1 and Nikon 1 V2. Additionally, more than a hundred new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, supporting additional Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Sony, Tamron and Tokina lenses for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras.
There are also a number of New Year discounts available through January 31 across all versions of DxO Optics Pro software. More details here on DxO Labs’ website.
Canon has issued a product advisory for the Canon 6D relating to the inability for movies shot on the 6D to playback on YouTube. This appears to be aimed at users who pull a card out of their camera and upload directly to YouTube.
The fix (for now) is to save the file via ImageBrowser EX and then upload to YouTube. If you already go through an editing and exporting process for your HDSLR videos, then you don’t need to worry about this problem.
