Canon EOS 6D firmware squashes clock bug

Have you experienced issues with your Canon EOS 6D digital SLR spontaneously requesting you to reconfigure its date and time settings? If so, you're not alone, and Canon has a fix for the problem. (But you're recommended to install the firmware regardless, as the company says that you may do so in the future.)

The problem is solved in Canon EOS 6D firmware version 1.1.3, released yesterday. Canon describes changes made in the firmware as follows:

"Fixes a phenomenon in which the Date/Time/Zone settings screen appears on the LCD display, after the user has already configured these settings. The values for the Date/Time settings may reset if the backup functions which retain those values do not perform properly."
