Se veia venir, y oye que los rusos cuando se ponen se ponen.
Abre el firmware 1.1.1 de la 300D y cambian una JDZ por un NOP y zas!
aparece un nuevo menu que es el MISMO que el de las custom fuctions de la 10d (el que teng una 10D sabra lo que digo)
Pues eso que le haces creer a la camar que no es la 300D sino la 10D y hay cosas que si puede hacer y cosas que no (imposibilidad de hardware)
Yo estoy en vilo porque la segunda cortinilla del flash no me ha quedado claro si funciona o no y es una de las cosas que mas me interesa.
Otra cosa es poder elegir la calidad del jpg que acopaña al RAW, dejandolo como viene por defecto en la 300D en una CF de 512 megas entran 69 afotos pero si ponemos el JPG a cero con el nuevo firmware, entran 10 mas
Nota: Es reversible a la version 1.1.1 sin problemas
NOTA: NO ANIMO A NADIE A QUE SE LO INSTAL, SOLO DEJO ESTE POST A EFECTOS INFORMATIVOS. SI TE LO INSTALAS ES TU RESPONSABILIDAD Y SOLO TUYA (que para eso eres mayor no?)
NOTA2: NO soy soporte, repito NO doy soporte para la instalacion
Aqui dejo un mensaje de un ruso que repasa las nuevas custom fuctions y si funcionan o no
espero os sea util
SET button func. when shooting.
0: Default (no function)
1: Change quality
2: Change parameters
3: Menu display
4: Image replay
I fully tested this one and it works
Shutter release w/o CF card
0: Possible without CF card
1: Not possible
I fully tested this one and it works. Useful if you ever lost
photos cause you forgot to put the CF
Flash Sync speed in Av mode
1: 1/200sec (fixed)
I have not tried this
Shutter button / AE lock button
0: AF/AE Lock
1: AE Lock/AF
2: AF/AF lock, no AE lock
3 AE/AF, no lock
This is probably one of the most wished for settings, but I do not
think it works. I tried it, and it didn't seem to work. I even
tried turning the camera off.
The only thing I didn't try was removing the batteries to
initialize the camera. Can someone try that???
AF-Assist Beam / Flash firing
1: Does not emit/Fires
2: Only ext. flash emits/Fires
3: Emits/does not fire
This one does not appear to work.
Exposure level increments:
1: 1/3 stop
This one works. At least the steps between aperture change on the
display. Remains to be seen if it has consequences on the hardware.
AF point registration
0: center point
1: lower point
2: mid-right point
3: right-most point
4: 7 points
5: left-most point
6: mid-left point
7: upper point
It would seem that this would replace the command we already have
for setting the focus point. But that is not the case. I don't know
what they mean by registration. Any thought on this?
3: RAW+Medium Fine
I haven't tried this, cause it requires filling up the card to
notice the difference. But I suppose it does work.
Bracket. sequence/Auto cancel.
I tried this and it didn't work
I have no idea what this is.
Doesn't seem to work, though
Menu button display position
0revious (top if powered off)
I'm not sure I undrstood this one, but it seems to allow you to
pick the first pic to be shown when you press display.
If that is the case, it doesn't work :-(
Now, this was a real disappointment. It might even work, but how do
you give it the command to lift the mirrror? No luck in finding it
Assist button function
1:Select Home Position
2:Select HP (while pressing)
3:AV+/- (AF point by QCD)
I guess we're out of luck here, since the 300D AFAIK doesn't even
have the assist button. But have you noticed a small hole in the
back, where your thumb is supposed to sit? I wonder if that was the
place where the button was supposed to fit if it hadn't been
Auto reduction of fill flash
I'm not sure what this does. Anyone can tell me how to test it?
Shutter curtain sync
Possibly tonight's greatest disappointment. It didn't work. I even
tried it with an external manual flash. Still doesn't work. Can
someone try it with the 420EX ?
Safety shift in Av or Tv
I have no idea what this should do.
Lens AF stop button function
2:AE lock while metering
3:AF point: M->Auto/Auto->ctr.
4:ONE SHOT AI SERVO
Now, this one looks the most promising of all, but I don't know what it truly means, and I seriously doubt it will work based on previous functions.
Bottom line, it appears that the most basic functions work. The more complex ones we've all been dying for don't. So, now we'll have to pray that some good news come out from Russia shortly.
Sorry folks if you're disappointed. But at least we have more features than we used to, and some reason to hope for future developments.
