Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR

Canon is releasing a firmware update for the EOS 5D Mark II to allow manual control for exposure when shooting video. The new firmware may be downloaded from Canon Japan’s support site beginning June 2, 2009.

Once the new firmware is installed, EOS 5D Mark II owners will be able to have full manual control of aperture, shutter speed and ISO when shooting video.

Since its launch the camera has proved its appeal to professionals working in diverse fields, from studio and wedding to nature and travel. Now, following customer feedback, Canon said it has improved functionality for professional video users, further unleashing the potential of the EOS 5D Mark II for cinematographers and photographers alike.
