Nikon might be releasing an entirely new camera to upgrade its Nikon 1 lineup in small ways, but Canon is going a different route with its 7D DSLR. The company has rolled out a major firmware upgrade that makes major improvements to the features of existing cameras.

The version 2 update, which we first reported on back in June, makes sweet improvements to key specs, including upping the RAW buffer from 15 to 25, adding in-camera RAW editing/JPEG resizing, introducing an in-camera photo rating feature, including the ability to limit maximum Auto ISO between 400-6400, and adding the ability to make manual audio level adjustments during video recording.

Want to geotag your photos? The update also allows you to use Canon’s GP-E2 GPS receiver with the camera.

You can find an entire list of features on this website promoting the update.

To get started with the update, head on over to the Canon USA website’s 7D page, and select your operating system under “Drivers & Software”:

At the time of this post, the update isn’t available yet for Mac OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion users should be able to use the Lion download just fine, though.
