Affected Products

Changes in firmware:

The firmware (version 1.9.0) incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:
  1. Adds support for the "Peripheral Coordinated Control.” Peripheral Coordinated Control is now always performed when a compatible lens is attached (there is no need to set it on the menu screen).
    * Peripheral Coordinated Control is a function that reduces changes in distortion around the periphery of the image caused by camera shake, which tends to occur with wide-angle lenses.
  2. Adds the ability to erase voice memos added to images and to add voice memos to protected images.
  3. Adds enhanced security when transferring images via FTPS transfer.
  4. Adds support for the Software Development Assistance Kit (EDSDK/CCAPI).
  5. Fixes an issue, in which, after touchscreen operation, in rare circumstances, the camera operations cannot be performed, and even if the camera is operated, [BUSY] appears on the screen.
  6. Fixes minor issues.
Firmware Version 1.9.0 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.8.1. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.9.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
