Canon Releases NEW firmware for the EOS Canon 5D Mark II

Canon has finally released the LONG awaited firmware update for the Canon 5D MarkII, bringing the version up to 2.0.3. New functionality includes:

  • 24 frames per second (actual 23.97) in addition to the already included 30 fps
  • Manual audio gain control (64 levels)
  • Histogram display for movie mode
  • Aperture and shutter priorities for movie mode
  • Improved audio sampling from 44.1 KHz to 48KHz

Much of this functionality has been long awaited by avid 5D2 users. I for one am very glad to see the addition of manual audio gain control as well as a histogram view while in movie mode. Now let’s hope Canon brings some of these features to the 7D.

You can download the software directly from Canon USA HERE
