Several websites are reporting that the new firmware for the Canon 5Diii are now available through unofficial channels. Apparently someone sent a camera in to Canon and they returned it with the new firmware on a thumbdrive and the user decided to share.

The firmware will:

1. Allow for clean HDMI out (some are reporting that there is no audio with this feature)
