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.
