Firmware Notice: EOS C700 / EOS C700 PL: Firmware Version

Firmware Version incorporates the following enhancements.

  1. Adds a [-1]*1 option to the [Noise Reduction] setting under Custom Picture Settings to completely cancel the effects of noise reduction.
  2. Improves menu operations so that when changing the menu settings under specific conditions*2, the settings related to [Sub Rec (XF-AVC)] or [Double / Relay Rec] will be retained.

    *1 On this product, even if the [Noise Reduction] setting is set to [Off], a small amount of noise reduction is still applied. If the [-1] setting is selected, no noise reduction is applied, so the amount of noise will increase compared to when the [Off] setting is selected. Furthermore, when displaying the metadata of clips captured with the [-1] setting using Canon XF Utility Ver. 3.2, the [Noise Reduction] setting will be displayed as blank.

    *2 The menu operations are improved under the following conditions listed below:
    - When resuming normal recording from slow & fast motion recording, the setting selected for the sub recording [Recording Media] or [Double Slot Rec] submenu before slow & fast motion recording will be restored.
    - When changing the setting selected for the sub recording [Recording Media] submenu, the setting for the [Resolution/Sampling] submenu will not change.
    - With the [Relay Recording] and [Double Slot Recording] settings both set to [On], if the [Double Slot Recording] setting is later set to [Off], the [Relay Recording] setting will still be [On].
