It's All There in Color!
I can confirm that this is all 100% on the level. No 50/60fps, but we will get manual audio control and a histogram! No mention if this will also add updates to the 7D or 1D Mark IV. The release date will be sooner than March 17th. We could see it as early as March 15th, 2010.
A very cool C5D reader gave me the inside scoop on the release of the 24p Firmware update for the 5D Mark II. It could be a few months before it is released to the public. Here is a quote from the email I received. Â Thanks for the tip, keep them coming!
“They (Canon) couldn’t make 720p they tested and found that is not good and decided to add this option to the next full frame camera that they will make.Â 24p will be available, but that’s it.”
So, according to this source. There will not be a 50/60fps, 720 X 1280 option for the 5D mark II. It will only be able to shoot 30p and 24p/25p @ 1080 X 1920. This is a blow to “Full-Framers”, but should not come as a big surprise.
