Canon EOS-1D X firmware update 1.1.1 now available

Canon has announced that a firmware update has been released for the EOS-1D X (Version 1.1.1) and is now available for download. Details of the exact firmware fixes and improvements are shown below.

EOS-1D X Firmware Version 1.1.1
Firmware Version 1.1.1 for the EOS-1D X incorporates the following fixes:
  1. Enables the centre AF point to autofocus when the camera is used with lens/extender combinations whose maximum aperture is f/8 (before, autofocusing was only possible up to a maximum aperture of f/5.6).
  2. Displays the viewfinder information (such as the AF frames, grid, etc.) in red during autofocusing and AI Servo AF. Note: When shooting in dark environments during AI Servo AF, the AF points can be easily confirmed. During AI Servo AF, the viewfinder will be lit intermittently, not continuously.
  3. Corrects a phenomenon where the metering value of the AE sensor becomes abnormal and the captured images become pitch-black depending on the timing of lens attachment and/or detachment.
  4. Fixes a phenomenon where Err 70 may occur during AEB shooting.
  5. Corrects errors in the Arabic menu.
  6. Fixes a phenomenon where the firmware of the lenses cannot be updated normally.
