    I've never used EOS Utility to update the firmware on my cameras (I don't even have the software installed).

    All you need to do is format a flash card, copy the file to the flash card via a card reader, and then select the firmware image file from within the firmware upgrade menu.

    Than you are missing a lot of things that make life easier...

    Downloading images without removing the memory card,
    Thethered shooting,
    Updating Camera owner details and copyright details,
    Synchronising the date and time
    Updating firmware
    ....

    No, that's not the case.

    USB card readers are faster than using the camera and its cable, and removing the memory card isn't a problem.

    I don't and never have entered that information into the camera. I know I own my camera, and I have a record of its serial number and other purchasing details.

    I set the time on the camera twice a year (ie, when DST toggles), and it doesn't need to be synchronised with a stratum clock source or any other device I own.

    I can already do this quickly and conveniently as previously described, and have done so numerous times over the past seven years.

    Bottom line: Use the EOS Utility if you like it, but in my case I don't need it.

    There is always - especially with CF cards - a chance that you damage the pins by frequently removing and inserting the card or damage SD cards by touching the contact strips (static).

    You might discover new opportunities....
    I don't and never have entered that information into the camera. I know I own my camera, and I have a record of its serial number and other purchasing details.
    So you don't have your name and copyright details in the EXIF information of your photos from the start - or have to add it in the PP.....

    Not all camera clocks are exact (mine is about 8 seconds slow per 24 hours... but I suppose you do not geo-synchronise your shots with a GPS generated location file....

    So - with computers and other gadgets integration EOS utility really has its advantages....

    It hasn't happened in the seven years I've been using a flash card reader.

    I'll stick with what works for me, thanks.

    Nope.

    I don't need nanosecond-level timestamp precision.

    No, I do not.

    So you do what works for you, and I'll do what works for me.

    Now, if only they could release some firmware that magically turned my 5D MKII into a 5D MKIII
