Canon has released a firmware update for the XF300/XF305 - High Definition Camcorders.

Firmware
Firmware Version 1.0.6.0 incorporates the following improvements.

  1. Compatibility with the Canon RC-V100 Remote Controller (expected to be available in June 2014) has been added.
  2. Compatibility with the Canon GP-E2 GPS Receiver has been added.
  3. Support for the 3x and 6x Digital Tele-converter settings has been added.

Firmware Version 1.0.6.0 is for XF305 and XF300 camcorders with Firmware Version 1.0.0.0 to Version 1.0.5.0.
