50D Firmware update

4 posts in this topic

For all you 50D owners, new firmware 1.06 is out and available. No more error 99's. They now have codes for all errors. sRAW files have banding issues corrected. I was actually at 1.03 when my camera was rebuilt a month ago, I must have missed a few updates confused

Rebuilt? New Pistons and Rings? grin

What happened?

I've never had an err99 with mine and no banding,so I'll leave well enough alone for now. Thanks for the heads up.

Literally new pistons and rings! The complete control board in the bottom of the camera failed and was replaced. I updated mine last night, no big deal, whole process was about 5 to 10 minutes. I've never had an error with mine either but I do like the latest firmware in the camera.

If you do the update you need to update the Canon software and RAW codec as well. I did a quick check after the update and the vertical banding sometimes noticeable at high ISO and in the shadow areas appears to be gone. I like the fact that instead of the generic "err99" they have specific codes which should allow you to narrow down the problem to more specific issues.

Thanks, Dan. I'll see if I can figure this one out in less than the 6 weeks the last one was. I haven't had any problems with mine (knock on wood).

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
