I did not realize how popular 1.8x anamorphic was for full-frame cameras but a lot of people asked for it.

I wish Canon would add timelapse back in. It sucks that they killed that feature in their latest cinema cameras. I understand that filmmakers don't use that feature when shooting commercial or narrative projects, but it's invaluable for documentary projects, which is honestly where the Canon cinema cameras are used the most.

Just ran this update on our unit and it seems to have failed and bricked it. If you are planning to run this update it might be wise to hold off for a bit?
