There’s a firmware update available for the Canon EOS 6D. It can be downloaded from the Canon website via the link below. This new firmware is v1.1.3 and according to Canon it “fixes a phenomenon in which the Date/Time/Zone settings screen appears on the LCD display, after the user has already configured these settings. The values for the Date/Time settings may reset if the backup functions which retain those values do not perform properly. Even if the camera does not exhibit this phenomenon currently, it may in the future. Accordingly, we recommend that you update the Firmware in the camera to version 1.1.3 as soon as possible”

Not too late for comet PanSTARRS

Share Button


It’s not too late to photograph comet PanSTARRS with a normal camera lens. The image above was taken tonight (April 4th) using a Canon EF 300/4L lens along with an EOS 7D. This image is actually 16 shots stacked together, each shot being 1s at f4 with ISO set to ISO 6400. The comet was not visible to the naked eye and was quite difficult to see even in binoculars. However it  still photographed pretty well one the lens was pointed in the right direction!
