A user in the Fred Miranda forum posted about an issue he or she has with the firmware update for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
[…] I decided to update the firmware since I do have the 70-200II […] Camera locked up twice shooting one game, I was looking through view finder turned away looked back through and had no info like it was shut off…the second time it was resuming from sleep….I have little doubt its the firmware…It also changed my MFA adjustments, and god help me I couldnt get it to repeat even my quick and dirty adjustments ( easy to do with a 300 2.8 and white lines on the ground at 45 degrees ) to MFA…it was perfect at +7 before ( and I routinely spot check each game )…it was closer to +4 after ( didnt realize this till I started reviewing some shots) then as I spot checked throughout the game I kept having to move it ( while not on a tripod with a release its a monopod and I use OS..I can shoot against objects to set the correct DOF vs object shot which is more important to me than sharpness on a chart..I do this all the time and its more repeatable than you think…Tomorrow I am going to do a factory reset and start over just to make sure…Proceed with caution…anyone have a link to the 1.02 firmware so I can put it back on there?
If you encounter this issue, try the following: 1) record the camera settings, 2) install the firmware update, 3) do a camera reset, 4) remove the battery for a few minutes, 5) restart the camera and 6) restore the settings. However, of the issue is in the firmware, this procedure will not help.
What about you, did you experience the issue after having installed firmware 1.04 on your EOS 7D Mark II?
