This 7D 1.2.5 firmware came out several days ago, but apparently Canon pulled it from their servers again. Why? Nobody knew. Canon even denied the existance of this firmware as someone suggested in an e-mail to me.

He also said that Canon is renewing their download portal thus delaying the availability of the firmware file.Read more

I got this via email from the guys over at Teradek. I had the chance to test out the Teradek Cube while reporting for The Guardian at CES. We used it for a live feed from the showroom floor. It was a harrowing experience to say the least. This video shows off the F-Stop Aerial Media helicopter more than the wireless transmitter. The delay is still a bit of an issue but the wow factor is still there. Transmitting to an iPhone or iPad will be the next step in wireless technology. I am just trying to figure out why Rob the helicopter pilot is wearing flip flops.
The on board camera is a Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16mm Zoom Lens. The killer helicopter is a T-Rex 700E with a Photoship One pan and tilt head. According to Rod Clark from Teradek. This is a highly modified version built by F-Stop Aerial Media.
