Photography Soup (7/30/07) (updated)

Late Edition

  • Canon issues Firmware 1.1.0 for the Canon 1D Mark III according to their Japanese website. I am not sure from the computer-translated text what type of issues this tries to fix. One of them talks about "AI servo AF", but I can't read Japanese, so I have no way of knowing.
  • Speaking of Canon, DSLRPhoto reports on Canon's financial report for the first half of 2007. A lot of positive numbers from Canon, 12.9% increase in sales (in $$$), 20% increase in units (thank you falling prices and A4xx). As it is typical with Canon, the percentage of profit increase was higher than the aforementioned numbers. Check the story for all the details.
