Canon has finally released the video-related firmware for its 5D Mark II DSLR. Firmware v2.0.3 adds more video options and is now available for immediate download via Canon’s website.

Firmware changes

  • Adds or changes the following movie frame rates.
    NTSC:
    1920×1080 : 30 fps (changed – actual 29.97 fps)
    1920×1080 : 24 fps (added – actual 23.976 fps)
    640×480 : 30 fps (changed – actual 29.97 fps)
    PAL:
    1920×1080 : 25 fps (added – actual 25.0 fps)
    1920×1080 : 24 fps (added – actual 23.976 fps)
    640×480 : 25 fps (added – actual 25.0 fps)
  • Adds a function for manually adjusting the sound recording level (64 levels).
  • Adds a histogram display (brightness or RGB) for shooting movies in manual exposure.
  • Adds shutter-priority AE mode (Tv) and aperture-priority AE (Av) mode to the exposure modes for shooting movies.
  • Changes the audio sampling frequency from 44.1 KHz to 48 KHz.
  • Fixes a phenomenon where communication between the camera and the attached lens is sometimes interrupted after manual sensor cleaning. (This phenomenon only affects units with Firmware Version 1.2.4.)

It is recommended that you use the latest Canon applications* to edit movies captured with EOS 5D Mark II cameras that have the latest firmware because some previous versions do not support movie-editing functions and the frame rates that are added or changed by the latest firmware.

In addition to the enhancements to the movie function, the accompanying instruction manual has also been revised. Users are asked to download both the latest firmware and the latest instruction manual.

*ZoomBrowser EX Version 6.5.0 or later (compatible operating systems : Windows XP/Vista/7)
ImageBrowser Version 6.5.0 or later (compatible operating systems : Mac OS X v10.4/10.5/10.6
