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.
