Canon has released a firmware update, version 1.0.6, for its popular introductory-level DSLR, the Rebel XS (EOS1000D). The firmware incorporates the following changes:
- Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the busy indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
- The message, “Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to
and again or re-install the battery,” appears on the camera’s LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out, the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
