Canon logo Press Release:
Canon have today released firmware updates for the Canon EOS 5D and 30D.

Version 1.1.1 of the firmware for the EOS 5D makes the following improvements:

1) It now supports high-capacity CF cards.

  • Previously, when using an 8Gb CF card or greater (e.g.,12Gb, 16Gb), even after initialising the card in the camera, the CF card capacity could not correctly be detected. This phenomenon has been fixed so that the camera will correctly recognise high-capacity CF cards.

2) It allows the latest lens names to be recorded in the Exif information of images taken.

The lens IDs of lenses released after EOS 5D are not in the camera; so these lens names could not be recorded in the Exif information of images. The lens IDs for the following new lenses are now included, so that the correct lens names will be recorded in the Exif information of images.
  • EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM *1)
  • EF 50mm f/1.2L USM *1)
  • EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM *2)
  • EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM *1)

The correct lens names for the lenses above marked *1) will be recorded in the Exif information of images.
The lens marked *2) has been added, if the firmware is version 1.1.0 or later.

3) Lenses that are compatible with the Digital Photo Professional 3.2 lens aberration correction function have been added.

  • More lenses will be supported by the lens aberration correction function of Digital Photo Professional 3.2, Canon's RAW image viewer/editing software.
  • Specifically, the four lenses listed in item 2 above have been added. In images taken with these lenses and cameras updated to v1.1.1, the lens aberration correction function can be used.
  • For other supported lenses, see the user manual for DPP 3.2.


Version 1.0.6 of the firmware for the EOS 30D makes the following improvements.

1) It allows the latest lens names to be recorded in the Exif information of images taken.

The lens IDs of lenses released after the EOS30D are not in the camera; so these lens names could not be recorded in the Exif information of images. The Lens IDs for the following new lenses are now included, so that the correct lens names will be recorded in the Exif information of images.
  • EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM *1)
  • EF 50mm f/1.2L USM *2)
  • EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM *2)
  • EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM *1)
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (Not sold in Japan) *1)
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II (Not sold in Japan) *1)
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM *1)
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II USM *1)
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS *1)
  • EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS *1)
The correct lens names for the lenses marked *1) above will be recorded in the Exif information of images.

Lenses marked *2) are added if the firmware is version 1.0.5 or later.

2) Lenses that are compatible with the Digital Photo Professional 3.2 lens aberration correction function have been added.

  • More lenses will be supported by the lens aberration correction function of Digital Photo Professional 3.2, Canon's RAW image viewer/editing software.
  • Specifically, the ten lenses listed in item 1 above have been added. In images taken with these lenses and cameras updated to v1.0.6, the lens aberration correction function can be used.
  • For other supported lenses, see the user manual for DPP 3.2.


Both updates also include corrections included in previous versions of the firmware. The access the updates, please click here for the 5D and here for the 30D.
