Thread: 1DX Firmware

  1. #1

    Default 1DX Firmware

    Hi guys, today i picked up my new (to me) 1DX
    The firmware tells 2.0.8 which i think is a little bit old as there seems to be a 2.0.9 and a 2.1.0 patch.
    Would it be safe to go straight to the 2.1.0, or do i need to do them both in sequence.
    I have done one before on a 7D, but i am not over confident, and i really dont want to mess it up.
    Cheers
    Pat.

    Hi Pat,

    According to the CPN site - the 2.1.0 includes recent previous Firmware update.

    Hello Pat.

    New toys and a 1Dx at that!

    I am not aware that they must be updated in sequence. My understanding is that the firmware overwrites what was previously there, so there shouldn't be a problem. Also, to provide some reassurance, Canon would have put out a warning if there was a likely problem. Equally, if there was a problem, the unfortunate recipients would surely have highlighted the problem on the internet.

    Make sure you have a fully charged battery fitted. Download the firmware and open it - you will see an update procedure folder and a Firmware folder. Copy and paste (or drag) the Firmware folder onto a previously formatted CF Card, or SD card for the 1Dx, but I always used a CF card. Remove both cards from the body and load the CF card with the new firmware. Press Menu and scroll to the Custom Function showing Firmware. Press that and it will ask you if you want to update the Firmware then follow the on screen instructions.

    Good luck and enjoy your new 1Dx.
    Colin

    One other thing - make sure you select the correct operating system - Windows or MAC OS

    Col MK one only uses 2 CF cards, no SD.

    Incidentally Pat, welcome to being a 1dx owner, are you aware Canon also do help guides you can download onto a CF card and watch on the rear screen when out and about.

    Thank you all for the help and info, its not something to mess about with for sure.
    As i get the time i will give it a go, i am a little busy at the moment so it may be a few days before it happens.
    I will deffo enjoy learning to make use of my awesome new piece of kit Colin, it is quite an upgrade from my 7D !.
    Also i picked up a 16-35 mk2 and a 100-400 mk2, both upgrades from my previous 15-85 and 100-400 mk1.
    Having had a difficult 3 years this is my personal little treat, mojo may be returned to normal service (hopefully).
    Thanks again guys.
    Cheers
    Pat.
