Canon has finally released the long-awaited firmware update for the much-loved 5d Mark II HDSLR camera, giving it the required video frame rates of 24 and 25 frames per second and better audio control. 5d shooters the world over are breathing a sigh of relief as their post-production workflow just got MUCH simpler as they no longer need to transcode from 30p video to 24p video.
Over in the Sony world, they also released their long-awaited firmware update for the EX1/EX3 Cinealta cameras to support the new, cheaper, SXS-1 cards and SD/MemoryStick adapter cards. Cheaper, longer recording times are now yours, EX owners. [Note: I performed the upgrade the other night and it went very smoothly]
