Canon adds 24 and 25fps HD Movie recording 
to the EOS 5D Mark II with Firmware 2.0.3

London, 2nd March 2010 – Canon today pre-announces the release of a firmware update for the multiple award-winning EOS 5D Mark II. Originally announced in late 2009, the update adds 24* and 25 frames per second (fps) recording to the camera’s EOS MOVIE video function, and will be available as a free download from the middle of March.

Developed following feedback from photographers and cinematographers, Firmware 2.0.3 further enhances the EOS 5D Mark II’s excellent video performance. The addition of new frame rates expands the camera’s video potential, providing filmmakers with the ability to shoot 1080p Full HD footage at 24fps (actual 23.976fps) – the optimum frame rate for cinematic video. 25fps support at both 1920×1080 and 640×480 resolutions will allow users to film at the frame rate required for the PAL broadcast standard, while the new firmware will also change the 30fps option to the NTSC video standard of 29.97fps. 

A new histogram display for shooting movies in manual exposure, shutter-priority (Tv) and aperture-priority (Av) have been added, and exposure modes will also be available in movie mode. Improved audio functionality will allow users to set sound record levels manually using a sound-level meter displayed on the LCD screen. The audio sampling frequency has also been increased from 44.1KHz to 48KHz, providing the optimum audio signal typically required for professional or broadcast material.

With its full frame CMOS sensor and compatibility with Canon’s wide range of premium lenses, the EOS 5D Mark II is already recognised for its outstanding HD video performance. Launched in September 2008, the camera immediately created a wide range of new possibilities for photographers and videographers, and the addition of new frame rates and manual audio levels extends those possibilities even further – allowing movie makers to shoot stunning movies to suit practically any creative purpose.

Extreme sports photographer Richard Walch was one of the first to be given the chance to use the newly updated EOS 5D Mark II to shoot the snowboarding movie “I Love My Friends”. Commenting on the EOS 5D Mark II’s video performance, Richard said: “The addition of the new frame rates opens up a whole new range of possibilities. If you’re a cinematographer, independent film maker or just enthusiastic about making your own movies, get out there and give it a try”. 

“I Love My Friends” shot by Richard Walch on the EOS 5D Mark II with the new firmware includes a look behind the scenes video is available to view at http://www.canon-europe.com/eos5dmarkII. 

The firmware will be available to download from mid-March from the Canon website http://www.canon.com/eos-d/

*Actual frame rate: 23.976fps

    No hay duda de que las DSLR son una buena opción, pero a mi me sigue tirando una barbaridad la Scarlet por el tema RAW. El H.264 interframe…

  3. Bueno menos mal! era muy triste la situación de la 5dMII hasta ahora. De todos modos lo suyo es tener una Red Scarlet y la 5D como cámara de soporte o los meikinofes. puestos a pedir :)

    Llega bastante tarde…
    Parece que en septiembre Canon presentará «algo» en la feria de Colonia Photokina: ¿una 5D MarkIII o una 3D?
    http://www.photokina-cologne.com/

    La mejor noticía es que los distribuidores han bajado el precio de la 5D MarkII y ahora el cuerpo está alrededor de los 1800€

    Y es que aunque nosotros solo veamos la opción video en estas DSLR lo que marca el precio es la competencia fotográfica, como por ejemplo la Sony A-750 que está por unos 1600€ (full frame sin video, eso si)

  5. Asi es, podria ser que canon este preparando una dslr raw. Habra que esperar un poco para hacer comparaciones con la scarlet ya que esta camara aun esta en el aire.

    Pues empezamos bien:

    «Recently we have discovered a malfunction that occurs with Firmware Version 2.0.3, in which the manual recording levels for C1/C2/C3 are changed and the camera becomes unable to record audio if the power is turned off (or if Auto power off takes effect) after registering «Sound Recording: Manual» in the camera user settings.
    We apologize very sincerely for the inconvenience, but we are going to stop making this firmware available for download. For customers who have already updated to the new firmware, when using the camera with the mode dial set to C1/C2/C3, please either set the sound recording settings to Auto.
    We are currently preparing firmware that will correct this malfunction. As soon as those preparations have been completed, we will let you know on this Web site. In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience this represents, but please wait until the fixed firmware is ready»

    Parece que tenemos nuevo firmware para corregir la «cagada» del 2.0.4

    We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience caused to our customers by suspending the availability of the Version 2.0.3 firmware.

    We are now introducing the Version 2.0.4 firmware. This firmware corrects the malfunction that occurred in the previous Version 2.0.3 firmware, in which the manual recording level changed and made recording impossible.

    Customers who have the Version 2.0.3 firmware on their cameras should update the firmware to Version 2.0.4.
