60p firmware doable with 7D and 1Dm4?

Right now I'm using my TM-750 to capture 60p to be used for super slow-motion. Was wondering if anyone with more technical knowledge could say whether or not a firmware upgrade could push these cameras to 60p?

The 7D already can do 60p at 1280x720. And I wouldn't consider 60p super slo-mo. You need about 1000 fps for that...

Sorry, I should've been more specific. I meant 60p at 1080.

Slowmo with this camera is shooting 60p at high shutter speed, putting it in a 24p timeline then using twixtor to do the rest of the slowmo.

If you do a QUICK search, you'll find that this was JUST discussed here. Apparently not possible due to the lack of a second processor to handle the additional frames.

Does the 'dual' in Dual DIGIC 4 not mean 2 processors?

Dual DIGIC 4 processors are used in the EOS 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV.

Perhaps my language was incorrect but my understanding from another thread was that no, there isn't enough processing POWER to do it.

You will never see 1080/60p from either of these DSLRs.

You need dual processors just to hit 720/60p - so logically speaking, you wouldn't be able to hit 1080p/60p without another one... Wait until the next generation of bodies.

Although the 7D does have dual processors you don't need them to record 720/60p as the 60D, 550D/T2i & 600D/T3i all record 720/60p & have single processors.
