      I think that everything posted was very reasonable.
      But, think about this, what if you typed a catchier title?

      I am not saying your content isn’t good., but suppose you added a post
      titlle that makes people desire more? I mean New Canon 7D 2.0.X Firmware Upgrade Now Available!
      is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s fronmt page
      and noe how they create post headlinees to grab viewers tto
      click. You might try adding a video or a related pic orr two
      too get people interested about everything’ve written.

      more interesting.

      Does anyone know where you can get step by step instructions for installing this update. I have a non technical friend with this camera and she needs some assistance. Thanks

        Hi Jake – download the zip file for Windows and when you unzip it you will find PDF files in various languages including English with full installation instructions.

      Bug #1: It does not detect my battery grip, and thus only shows one battery installed.
