*UPDATE* 5D Mark II Firmware

This info apparently comes from the Super Meet event in San Francisco. Canon is a sponsor of the event.

This information isn’t official from Canon that I can find.

Not in February…
We’re told the 5D Mark II feature firmware update will not be available in February. Another thing not in line for the firmware is 720p mode.

Thanks Andrew

  1. The mode dial takes some significant force to move. I don’t see how it can be moved accidentally unless you are mistreating your camera. Mine has never been set to a position other than where I set it.

  2. Makes sense being tough to do. But does it make sense announcing the firmware if they are not certain it works, or haven´t gotten it to work?

    The whole thing is very weird.

    Situation could be easily resolved if Canon followed the advice my favourite teacher gave me all those years ago: Tell it like it is.

  3. The 5dmk2 is a fantastic camera,the video option is a wonderful tool and at the price they charged,here in New Zealand $8.000.000 it deserves the firmware updates that will make it equal too or technicly better than the 7D we 5dmk2 owners that shoot both photographs and video all require,everybody needs to breath deeply,wait as it will all pan out to our advantage,i too am frustrated but tyhe best thing to do is sign the partition and be heard by those in Canon. Ps..when they do release the firmware dont forget to say thankyou.

  4. Uhm, no it really isn’t.

    I think Canon *just* might want to sell more $2700 cameras than $1600 cameras. And if you want to stupidly argue that basic point, be my guest.
