Canon Updates EOS 6D Firmware - Fixes YouTube Problem

canon_eos6d_w-grip_550.jpgThe EOS 6D offers up some impressive video, including the ability to shoot at 1080p at 30fps or 720p at up to 60fps. Unfortunately, a recent update made that capability all but useless for some users, thanks to a bug that made the videos unviewable on YouTube.

Firmware update 1.1.2 fixes this issue for the future, and Canon has issued a statement on a workaround for issues with video files corrupted in firmware version 1.0.9.

  1. Shoot a video snapshot and create a video snapshot album.
  2. Import the captured video snapshot album to your computer.
  3. Start ImageBrowser EX, an application bundled with the EOS 6D.
  4. Select the video snapshot album, and select [Edit Movie] in the [Edit] tab.
  5. MovieEdit Task will start.
  6. Select [Add Image] and select video snapshot album to add the movie snapshot.
  7. Select [Save] and [Save image type], and then click [Save].

You can download the update directly from Canon.
