Here is a quote from the Canon Site about the audio problems with the new 2.0.3 update. Canon has taken down the firmware upload from their site until they can address these issues. The wait continues.

“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.”

24p isn’t jerky! It’s 24p! You will need smoother and slower pans for 24p…I filmed handheld my daughter pulling weeds yesterday and it looked great. This camera would have to go from the 44 or so mbits/sec to over 100 mbits/sec to resolve what you are seeing…

NOT ONLY AUDIO.

I’ve just called canon about my very jerky 24p problem. I’m not Alone, They said to me that it will be fixed too in few days..
