Canon introduced new firmware versions for its top-notch DSLRs Canon EOS-1D X and Canon EOS 5D Mark III - 2.0.7 and 1.3.3, respectively. The firmware updates with both of these models bring improved user's ability to control autofocus in the Live View (LV) mode when wide-angle lenses are used. The firmware 2.0.7 for the 1D X has also tackled several issues known from before, among which are an issue with vertical lines that used to appear when long exposures are used, as well as certain instances when the electronic level indicator failed to function properly.
The rest of the improvements brought about by these firmware updates are the following:

3. Solved a problem with the Save and read camera settings function - when using this function, the color space data that used to be selected in the Custom shooting mode (C1-C3) could not be saved.
