    If anyone is interested there is a firmware upgrade available to add custom functions and other useful stuff to the 300D. Pretty much upgrades it to 10D spec.

    I'm not sure wether I should post it here but if anyone wants it please PM me.

    It's not an official update at all but a hack that someone has done.

    The hack should work but you should be aware that applying it will immediately invalidate your warrenty.

    Personally speaking I dont think its worth the risk

    It really depends if the features it gives you are worth it.

    Hi witters, what version is the update? the only one I know of is on the Japan Canon web site
    http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/eosdigital/E3kr_firmware-e.html version 1.1.1. This one has been posted here before and has updated successfully on my 300D. can you also pm me the web address if it can't be posted here, though I won't use it if it's iffy.

    It's not iffy from a reliability point of view. plenty of 300D owners on DP Review forums have installed it with no problems at all. The general concensus seems to be that it voids warranty.

    How you getting on with your D70?
