    It is NOT a patch. It is a modified FirmWare image that can be downloaded to the camera.
    However, it would void the camera's warranty and if something goes wrong, it would make your
    camera inoperable. This is true with Flashing almost all FirmWare.

    All of which is quite true. However, it does not answer the original
    question. The Waisa firmware can be found here:
    http://satinfo.narod.ru/en/download.html . Use it at your own risk.

    functions 
    Flash'd mine with no problem at all, never heard on this group or any other
    that had a problem. Takes all of about 10 seconds to do.

    Me, too - of the HIGH STAKES variety.

    I can only IMAGINE the warranty implications should one apply a HACKED
    firmware update then need repairs.

    I have looked at the websites and while there are benefits, I paid 800 for
    the thing and can't afford to bugger the warranty up, I think i,ll wait
    until it's expired then do it.

    Thanks for the help & advice

    I thought that initially, too, but I just can't resist fiddling around
    with things, so I applied it to my 300D and never looked back. It works
    great and some of the extra functions see a lot of use, especially flash
    exposure compensation.

    General consensus that I've gathered from here, r.p.d, and various
    websites is that nobody's had a problem with it yet (if anyone has, they
    haven't made any noise about it), and those that have sent their cameras
    in for warranty service haven't had any issues with Canon - at most they
    find the camera re-flashed to the stock code when it's returned.

    Personally, I say if you can use the additional functions, go for it.
