New 10D firmware for 300D

  1. Have you seen that there is a new hacked 300D firmware out there ?
    All that is done is 2 bytes have been changed, and you get access
    to the Custom menu of 10D, with half the features working.

    It used to be at: http://300d.no-ip.org

  2. I have it, have installed it, no problems. I get about 10 more RAW
    files on a 512 CF card thanks to being able to reduce the size of the
    embedded JPEG.

    Check out the 300D forum on DPreview.com for more details, there is
    also a list of mirrors available there if you want to download the
    file.

  3. I am already using it with no ill effects. But I have some good
    effects: (it is only 2 bytes, enabling a forgotten menu).

    15% more RAW pictures due to my setting of small low quality
    embedded jpeg-preview. Also gives faster browsing of already taken
    pictures.

    I now can press the Set button and use the wheel to change resolution
    without visiting menus.

    I have disabled the ability to fire shutter without CF. So no
    longer will I shoot and find out afterwards.

    I can set the flash to always force 1/200s exposure, rather
    than suggest shutter time that will force background exposure.

    I have my menus always returning to where I left.

    That is about it. Oh yeah, I also have a constantly blinking
    anti-redeye icon.
