EOS-1D X: Firmware Update Version 2.0.3
Custom Camera Operations
Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 brings new levels of accuracy and versatility to the EOS-1D X DSLR camera's incredible AF and exposure systems. Incorporating input from EOS-1D X users, with new systems created to deliver better performance, Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 offers smart solutions to improve the camera's already stellar AF and exposure systems. Across a diverse range of subjects and lighting situations, with Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 onboard, the EOS-1D X provides enhanced intuitive and adaptable operation.
Improved Low-Light Performance

Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 introduces major improvements for AF performance in low-light situations. When shooting in AI Servo mode, a new algorithm has been designed for better AF before shutter release, and the camera offers more options for release priority between shots, allowing the photographer to specify whether to place priority on speed or focus accuracy.

Improved AF Tracking: Acceleration/Deceleration

When photographing a moving subject, Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 helps the photographer to fine-tune AF performance based upon the nature of the action. By offering greater latitude in acceleration/deceleration tracking detection with additional -1 and -2 parameters, AF performance can be matched to the specific characteristics of the subject at hand. By specifying less or more speed variation, tracking across AF points becomes significantly more accurate.

Expanded Minimum Shutter Speed in Auto ISO

When shooting in Auto ISO mode, Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 delivers an extended shutter speed range, enabling the photographer to shoot at speeds up to 1/8000 sec. (With Auto ISO set, the previous minimum shutter speed was 1/250 second). Thanks to the new firmware, it is now possible to shoot with Auto ISO and still be capable of capturing fast action.

Manual Exposure Compensation in Manual Mode with Auto ISO

In response to user input, Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 enables manual exposure compensation in Manual mode with Auto ISO specified. In situations where photographers set aperture and shutter speed and depend on Auto ISO for the proper exposure, now they have the added option of manual exposure compensation to accommodate rapid changes in lighting conditions.

Auto Exposure Compensation in Manual Mode
With Firmware Update Version 2.0.3 the camera can automatically adjust the exposure compensation to match an aperture change. This is useful when changing focal length on a variable aperture lens and when adding an extender. By offering the option to adjust shutter speed or ISO to compensate for the change in aperture, the EOS-1D X DSLR camera helps ensure the photographer a new level of control without taking the camera from their eye.
