Fantastic news! Canon has just announced that a new firmware for the 5D Mark III is coming out that “significantly improves the camera’s performance and usability”.

The most exciting part of the firmware update is that it will allow for uncompressed HDMI output. This means you can record umcompressed video data from the Mark III to an external recorder. Also with the firmware update there will be improved AF functionality.

The bad news? The firmware won’t be available until April 2013. At least we all have something to look forward to…
