New firmware update for EOS 7D Mark II

Canon removed firmware version 1.1.1 after a communication error was discovered (see item posted on 19 May 2017). The company has now resolved the issue and released firmware update version 1.1.2. This incorporates the following changes:
•  Corrects the phenomenon in which remote shooting with the Camera Connect App is not possible after connecting the EOS 7D Mark II to a smartphone via the Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1.

This phenomenon only occurs when the firmware was updated from Version 1.0.5 or earlier to Version 1.1.1. There is no need to update the firmware if the firmware was updated from Version 1.1.0 to Version 1.1.1, or if the EOS 7D Mark II was equipped with Firmware Version 1.1.1 at the time of purchase.

The firmware can be downloaded at:
