Canon has released an updated firmware for the EOS 50D, as always they recommend updating the software as well. Among changes are a fix for vertical banding (I have installed but not tried it the new firmware out yet).

Apple has updated the software on the iPhone to 2.2.1. You can read more about it at this link to macrumors.com but it appears to be just a bug fix.
Having played with Street view in the new 2.2 firmware now for a day I have to say it is very cool. I have been using it to check that I am where I expected to be
Another thing that has been impressing me lately is the speed of the 3G data transfer, it could be that I’m just in a lucky area but so far it has been super fast for surfing, email and twitter on the go.
So the new firmware for iPod touch and iPhone is out. And whilst it is great that I can browse and download podcasts it’s also pretty useless right now?
1. I cannot subscribe to a new feed?
2. When I hit get more episodes on any of my current podcasts subscriptions it just sends me to the first page of the store?
3. When I do download a podcast is still appears in the list of episodes and even allows me to download it again??
Nice effort Apple, but pretty bloody useless unless I’m just not seeing where the above is in the ‘feature’?
Why not just call it the ‘ Browse and preview podcasts but never actually subscribe to them’ feature…
P.S. I have yet to be brave enough to upgrade my iPhone to 2.2, I’ll give it a day and see how many problems there are before I do anything. I learned that the hard way with 2.0.2 on the iPod.
Canon has released the much awaited 1.0.3 firmware update for the Canon 50D. Here are the notes, and lets hope that it does indeed deal with the err99…we should find out soon enough.
Notes from the page regarding changes,
This firmware update (Version 1.0.3) incorporates the following fixes.
1. Corrects a phenomenon in which an image becomes overexposed when C.Fn.II-3 Highlight tone priority is set to “1″ together with other camera settings. (This correction has already been incorporated in the Version 1.0.2 and later firmware.
2. Corrects a rare phenomenon in which “busy” blinks on the camera’s display panel and the shutter cannot be released due to the timing of battery installation.
3. Corrects a rare phenomenon in which “Err 99″ appears on the camera’s display panel and LCD monitor and the shutter cannot be released due to the timing of pressing the shutter button.
Firmware Version 1.0.3 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.0.2. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.0.3, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
My install was fast and painless, now the testing begins…
So am I the only one to notice that the read me file for the update actually says what changes are made rather than Apple’s standard non-informative improved reliability read me note? Could it be that they are doing some damage control at last and saying “hey we fixed what everyone said was broke and we are telling you so, but we still don’t want to admit there was a problem”.
