Canon 40D Firmware Update 1.1.1
The undesirable winter is the reason why my DSLR has been dormant for sometime. Unbeknownst to me that there were already three releases of firmwares for Canon 40D since my last time updating it from 1.0.3 to 1.0.5 since January 2008! The releases were 1.0.8 released as early as April and towards year end, 1.0.10 and 1.1.1 followed suit.
From the information I have obtained around the blogs, 1.0.10 and 1.1.1 are actually unofficial. The only official one was 1.0.8. I am unsure why but from the sources, the two latest one are only made available after servicing which was really weird.
