Canon has provided further details on the new Canon 5D Mark II firmware, which will be available for download later this month. The new firmware version 2.0.3 will enable the Canon 5D Mark II to capture 1080p video at 24fps (actual 23.976fps) and will change the 30fps rate to NTSC standard 29.97fps. The 5D Mark II will also be able to capture 1080p video at the PAL standard of 25fps. Additional tweaks include an histogram display for shooting movies in manual exposure, shutter-priority and aperture-priority, manual control over sound recording levels and a broadcast standard audio sampling frequency.
