    Update should be performed with the digital back disconnected from the camera, and without FireWire or USB connected.
    Also make sure you have a newly charged battery in the IQ back.
    1. Download the latest IQ Firmware from the website,
    2. Transfer the .fwr file to an empty compact flash card and insert it into the IQ’s

    compact flash card slot.
    2/2
    4. After upgrade the digital back will have to be rebooted, a full reboot is performed by removing the battery from the IQ back, and reinserting it.
    If you regret any updates, the “Restore Firmware” option will revert to the factory installed firmware version. If you experience errors you can use the menu “Dump Log” to transfer Log information to the CompactFlash card – this log file you can use to send to support for further analysis.
    3. Select “Update Firmware” from the Firmware menu and the IQ back will automatically detect and implement the update from the card.

    You beat me, Guy.

    Hey, I think item #5 requires us to buy a new Schneider LS lens, you know, to test the firmware update....

    USB and UDMA7 not complete yet.

    http://www.captureintegration.com/20...rmware-update/

    USB in this update refers to USB controlled Schneider Electronic Lenses most commonly used in table-top photography and special applications (e.g. art reproduction).

    Wow, a custom splash screen. I am so impressed that I can forget all of the other missing essential features.

    In a way though it can identify your back. Okay that may not seem really needed but you know on the workshops stuff goes all over the place. There are times it would be useful, okay maybe cool to show off your studio logo to all the models. See what was i thinking there you go, thats the reason. LOL

    Re: New 2.0 Firmware Update for Phase IQ Series MFDBs

    let's see,
    we can have a custom splash screen......................
    but 1 year after the promotion of USB as a connecting protocol and the port is only useful to operate a remote shutter on a tech cam.
    We are now up to firmware 2.0
    I am beginning to wonder if the promise of USB 3.0 tethering is vaporware.

    Re: New 2.0 Firmware Update for Phase IQ Series MFDBs

    So in the Keystone pane in C1 there is an "A" (for automatic) that is greyed out for me. Is that because I'm using my IQ 180 with a tech camera or because it hasn't been implemented for the IQ 180 yet?

    Yeah, me too! And I've shot a few dozen frames to make sure everything else is OK, and it is.

    No more squinting at the DF top LCD to change custom functions!

    Ken,
    How did you find out about the update? Neither Phase One nor my dealer has ever notified me of firmware updates. Sure would be nice, since they have no trouble emailing promotional material.

    Hmm. Ditto. Good point! And it's not like I'm a stranger either as I'm on my 4th Phase One back, 3 of which were bought or supplied new and all should have been registered. In fact one was a complete DOA that they replaced so they certainly can't claim not to know about that one.

    Phase One singled me and Guy out specifically stating *free* DF firmware updates available with purchase of any new Schneider LS lens....


    Actually, would you believe----I saw a posting from Phase One on Facebook with the link back to their main website download page. My guess is that the regular marketing gurus aren't as fast putting something together as the tech division. We'll probably receive some nice email soon, nicely annointed with images of new Phase/Schneider offerings, and a "oh yeah, there's an update available too..." ken

    I guess it pays to be fb friends. Yeah, you can be my friend and Don's fb friend too, I promise I won't tell anybody....

    Who is your dealer?

    You could always sign up for our RSS feed which would have had you notified within an hour of the release along with more frank technical discussion of the update than you'll get from Phase One.

    http://www.captureintegration.com/2008/08/11/rss-feeds/

    We won't be sending it out by email until our next newsletter for three reasons:
    - we JUST had a newsletter the hour before it was released
    - we want to do our own testing and let our early adopters report any issues
    - we don't want to send a newsletter with ONLY this info since the majority of our total user base do not own IQs

    Also probably worth noting that it's been about 24 hours since release. In the digital age we may have an expectation of within-10-second notifications. But I think notification within a few days would count as timely.

    I joke around a lot, but seriously do depend on Capture Integration for support. Recently, for example, I wasn't aware that earlier firmware updates to the DF could possibly "switch" user preferences under CF19 for autofocus. It did mine---but because the defaults had changed, it wasn't clear which was now setting 0 or 1. Doug Peterson quickly confirmed and walked me through. He's always been helpful---or maybe its because of flashbacks of Kenna and Donna that he's always on his toes. I now love my Schneider 110mm LS that much more....

    The DF firmware/AF stuff is here: http://www.captureintegration.com/ca...ips-and-trick/

    The RRS feeds from CI are helpful and easy to weed out what you don't want.

    That's fine too, but most people that do that end up spending more money on cameras, lenses, and related accessories....

    I want to express my thanks to Capture Integration for their RSS feed to which I subscribe. Apart from important news like firmware and software updates, these folks are just plain helpful and informative.

    I wish they had a Canadian branch!

    Thanks Doug. Good to know. Fortunately upgrading to 2.0 was on my post-Christmas "to do" list. Procrastinating sometimes pays off.

    Re: New 2.0 Firmware Update for Phase IQ Series MFDBs

    Like Joe I somehow managed to procrastinate with my IQ firmware upgrade (which really isn't like me at all! ).

    I only have the 55LS but so long as I shoot it using the focal plane shutter I'm OK with the upgrade correct? I do use MUP for the majority of my shooting either with timer or cable release.

    Thanks

    Doug, you don't mention what the "serious issue" is. (I have read the posting on Capture Integration's site.)

    Of course I can try and find it for myself - I have the 80 and 55 LS - but it would be nice if you could be more specific.

    Meantime I'll go FP shutter only in case I cause a nuclear explosion...

    Also curious about how the problem exhibits itself. I assume the two shutters aren't coordinating correctly?

    Is there any reason to use the shutter in an LS lens other than when using flash? Currently in mirror up mode, the FP shutter still fires nearly identically when using the lens shutter so the camera is still bouncing around.

    Any chance they were trying to make this work "correctly", by closing the lens shutter and opening the FP shutter when in mirror up mode, and it just didn't work? (I know- wishful thinking, they would have put this in the release notes.)

    O, thanks Bill. In our rush to post I didn't notice we didn't actually say what was wrong!

    With that combination when you go to take a picture either nothing happens (at all) or a series of sounds from the shutter half-firing. Sometimes this may be accompanied with the system locking up (requiring an ejection of the battery).

    We do not suspect anything damaging, nuclear or otherwise, but suffice it to say we think "not working" is pretty serious.

    TX Doug. I'll go FP shutter for now - which as I rarely use high speed flash is no sacrifice!

    Anyone have problems on a Tech Camera after upgrading?

    Okay that explains why my 160 was acting up Saturday shooting models with high speed sync flash. I did lock up about 3 times with about 1200 shots shooting sensor plus. I mean like dead scare me to death dead. Lol

    It worked after a few tricks with battery

    No problem here. I actually get fewer capture errors than I used to.

    I used to get one about every half-dozen frames. Now I think I only get one when I push the release without cocking the shutter first.

    Also recently exchanged the prototype Alpa sync chord with a real production version so that may be some of it too, but that was about a month ago.

    2.1 is out now and according to my brief tests with LS lenses is working as it should.

    Season's Greetings to all!

    Re: New 2.0 Firmware Update for Phase IQ Series MFDBs

    I've installed 2.01 on an IQ180 with the 645DF. Although I'm able to set a few custom functions, I can't get into the menu to set all of the individual functions. Is this a limitation of the firmware or am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    You caught me off-guard, Paul. Turn to CF on the main dial. Make sure to select a user: A, B, C. I wasn't able to set CF settings either---what happened is that the firmware update "cleared" my user "A" setting. Try re-designating a user, then try your individual CF settings...

    ken

    p.s. Make sure to check CF19, autofocus. The default goes to "speed." After the firmware update, I again had to reset CF19 to 1 for "accuracy."
