Awesome to see Canon announce this firmware upgrade coming on June 2nd.
It will allow the following manual controls when shooting HD video:
- Full aperture selection
- ISO speed: Auto, 100 – 6400 and H1
- Shutter speed: 1/30th – 1/4000th second
The one thing in the original firmware that was inhibiting really creative video’s was the automatic exposure. Read more about it on DPReview:
Hopefully this won’t impeed the efforts to create the ‘5D Free firmware‘ or maybe this is a sign that Canon will release offical versions that mean it’s not needed ? Time wil tell.
