This is a truly awesome and wanted update. Never thought canon would do something like this. The fact that they just did this with a camera that has been out for a bit shows they are getting more committed to their base as the canon of old would just come out with a new camera with this feature. I wish they did audio with slow mo on this though. I have used a lot of cinema cameras and this camera is one of my favorites, what you get out of this compared to a red is hands down more reliable and gives you equal quality with better ergos
