C300 Quick Tip: Updating Firmware

Canon recently announced their new firmware for the C300.

The firmware features the following updates:

  • Some EF lenses can now be controlled more reliably when mounted on the camera
  • Corrections to the Spanish and German text in the View Assist function
  • The color fringing seen when a subject is of high contrast has been corrected

You can download firmware for the C300 and the C300 PL directly from Canon's support site. Watch my video above to see the straight forward method for updating your camera. If you're interested in learning even more about the Canon C300, our full-day Canon C300 & C500 Workshop is coming up in NY at the end of the month!
