From Canon Europe

Canon has announced that a feature upgrade for the groundbreaking EOS-1D C DSLR, that includes the addition of support for 25p recording at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution, is now available from Canon’s authorised service facilities in Europe.

The new EOS-1D C feature upgrade makes a number of new features available in the camera:

  1. Provides support for 25.00p (fps) video recording frame rate (PAL settings) at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution.
  2. A function to disable the image size selection button has been added.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which a difference in exposure appears on every other shot when shooting continuously and the auto-lighting optimizer is turned on (on weak, standard or strong).

Furthermore, this upgrade provides a number of additional fixes for existing features:

  1. Fixes a phenomenon in which video recorded onto an external recorder sometimes becomes two-layered if it has been recorded through HDMI output.
  2. The video frame rate now displays two additional decimal places, e.g. 24p -> 23.98p (fps).
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the on-screen guidance cannot be fully displayed when setting the maximum limit value for the “Auto ISO Range” option.
  4. Corrects errors in the Portuguese language menu.
