In case you missed or did not apply the previous SD14 firmware updates, you will get these improvements too:

[ Version 1.03 ]

  1. Corrects the intermittent camera freeze while CF CARD BUSY LIGHT is on during continuous shooting.

  2. Corrects the remaining battery power display on the top LCD panel
[ Version 1.02 ]

  1. Corrects the phenomenon that did not save the AdobeRGB from sRGB when the camera body was turned off.

  2. Improved the exposure of the built in flash.
[ Version 1.01 ]

  1. Sensor cleaning can now be done by powering the camera from the battery.
    Originally, sensor cleaning was only available through the dedicated AC adapter. If the voltage level of the battery becomes lower than a certain level, the camera will emit a warning beep and will close the cleaning mode. We strongly recommend using a fully charged battery for the sensor cleaning.

  2. If using the camera in 'A' mode with flash photography, the selected shutter speed would either be 1/60 or 1/180sec depending on the focal length. Now, the optimum shutter speed is selected from the range of 1/60 to 1/180sec.

  3. A slow sync mode has now been added if using the camera in 'A' mode with flash photography. The optimum shutter speed is selected from a range of 30sec to 1/180sec.

  4. Improved image quality when reviewing images on the rear LCD.

  5. Corrects the overexposure issue when using flash with high ISO setting under certain conditions.

  6. Corrects the incompatibility issue with some FAT16 formated large CF cards.

  7. Corrects the phenomenon of the intermittent camera freeze under certain conditions.

  8. Corrects the malfunction of wireless flash with built-in flash under certain conditions.

  9. Corrects the phenomenon that did not save the AdobeRGB setting when changed from sRGB. This was the bug in the menu display.

  10. Corrects the phenomenon that the LCD flickered under certain conditions.

  11. Corrects terminology in the Korean menu.
