Canon has released firmware version 1.0.5 for the EOS 40D digital SLR. Available now via Canon Japan's website, the update addresses a number of bugs and issues.
Canon EOS 40D firmware update version 1.0.5 incorporates the following improvements and fixes:
- When playing back images just after recovering from Auto Power Off, the display now shows the last image played back. If the camera is automatically turned off while playing back images, the last image played back will now be shown if the power comes back on and playback operations are resumed.
- During remote shooting, images are now displayed on the camera's LCD monitor right after they are taken.
When using remote shooting with a CF card in the camera, when transferring images to the PC and CF card, the images taken will now be displayed on the camera's LCD monitor immediately after they are taken. For information on how to set the length of time the images are displayed after they are taken, please refer to the instruction manual.
- Corrects a warning message in Korean that appears when updating the firmware.

- Corrects an error in the Spanish flash C.Fn:2-1.
