Canon EOS-7D Problem

October 28, 2009

Canon just issued a service notice for the new EOS-7D. It says that under “certain conditions” (unspecified) in continuous shooting mode slight traces of the previous image may appear on a subsequent image. They apologised profusely and promised a firmware update to fix the problem.

Here is a link to the service notice (USA).

Camera firmware is getting so complex now that this kind of bug will appear more often from all manufacturers. I think software QC still trails hardware by miles.

Of course, as a Frugal Photographer I am delighted at the news. Another reason why I can tell myself I shouldn’t buy this camera that I crave!
