Several leading manufacturers have released firmware updates for important cameras and lenses in their ranges.
Canon has released Firmware Version 1.1.6 which addresses a bug relating to simultaneous viewing on the LCD and via HDMI output. Firmware v. 1.1.2 for the EOS 5D Mark IV updates the camera to Exif 2.31 and expands lens corrections for a number of lenses as well as applying several bug fixes. New firmware is coming for the following lenses: the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM and EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM, which will acquire support for the EOS M50 body’s Dual Sensing IS function. A number of Canon’s Cinema EOS cameras have also received firmware upgrades, along with the ME200S-SH Multi-Purpose camera.

Fujifilm has released Firmware Ver. 1.01 for its new X-H1 camera. The new firmware corrects two anomalies. The first is a phenomenon where the camera would display ‘TURN OFF THE CAMERA AND TURN ON AGAIN’ when shooting with the electronic first-curtain shutter and flicker reduction enabled. The second involved unintentional defaulting to ISO Auto when the Custom setting was used. The new firmware is available at http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/fw_table.html.
The Nikon D5 gains Firmware Version 1.21, which fixes an issue where the camera sometimes had difficulty focusing on subjects in focus points at the edges of the frame. Firmware Version 1.12 for the Nikon 1 V3 fixes an issue that resulted in Auto power off not functioning as expected with DF-N1000 electronic viewfinders. Firmware Version 1.12 for the Nikon 1 V2 addresses an issue that prevented the camera correctly displaying location data acquired with GP-N100 GPS units. The new firmware can be downloaded through http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/index.html.
Firmware V1.08 for the Ricoh G800 adds a Camera Memo Overwrite option to the camera memo menu. If Off is selected, camera memos can be viewed in playback mode but can’t be changed. The default setting is On. The download is available at http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/g800.html.
