You would need to check if the firmware in your new 7D is the latest, Rob.
This one is worth upgrading, IMHO.

Hi coleslaw, what programme you useing to open the file, I cannot open it from the win rar.
Do i have to make a new file on my desktop and open in there?

I don't know Ian, I don't have a 7D.
But I have just tried to download it. It downloaded as a zip file in Window, so I guess any zip/unzip software would do. If you are using Mac, it might have been unzipped already.
I have the free 7zip and IZarc. They are free and unzipped the file fine.

something not right here coleslaw, canons own website does not have the latest firmware so why would anyone else.

I can't open the file from your link even though i have winrar. keeps telling me i need software to open the folder as nothing i have is supported for that file type.

Surely winrar should open it automatically?

Ian, that's Canon USA, I guess that is Canon's own website?
I have no issue at all downloading and unzipping it. So, I can't help.

Rob, see grabscreen:

Anyway, I am just passing on the news.... don't shoot me... GrinTongue
