Future Firmware: EOS-1D X Mark III

Thank you for using Canon products.

We have confirmed that the following phenomenon may occur during use of the EOS-1D X Mark III digital SLR camera. A new firmware release is planned for early April; once the new firmware is ready, we will make an announcement on our website.

We would like to offer our sincere apologies to users of these products who may have been inconvenienced by this issue


When the camera is used with the electronic level set to “Show” in the viewfinder display, in rare cases, the camera may not perform normally when operating the AF-ON button or shutter button.

Use the “Hide” setting for the “Electronic level” in the “Viewfinder display”.

Setting procedure:

*Default setting: [Hide]


In early-April 2020, we plan to release a firmware update to address the phenomenon listed above. Once the new firmware is ready, we will make an announcement on the Canon U.S.A website.

In the interim, please follow the steps provided in the workaround.
