The new firmware updates incorporate the following issues:

We identified the phenomena below, which could arise in rare instances when certain EF-X500 units are in stand-by mode and when a communication error occurs between the camera and this flash unit.

The phenomena below could occur in the aforementioned instances:

1. The applicable EF-X500 flash unit does not properly respond to turn on from stand-by mode.

2. The alkaline batteries may become increasingly hot. If you try to take the batteries out of the EF-X500 flash unit without turning the flash off and/or disconnecting the flash unit from the camera and letting the batteries cool down, a skin burn could occur.

A firmware update is now available to address and prevent this potential occurrence in relevant EF-X500 units.
