At the end of June Canon released an advisory for their new flagship Canon EOS 1DX Mark II warning users against potential image corruption issues when recording still images to SanDisk CFast cards.

Despite the advisory being only recently released, Canon has already developed a fix for the problem. Firmware v.1.0.2 is now available here, which "incorporates countermeasures for a phenomenon in which the bottom part of still images recorded to SanDisk CFast cards become corrupted." In addition, communication reliability between the camera and CFast cards in general has been improved.
