Not only the 1Ds, but the 1D and 60D as well.

That just made my morning. I am sitting here editing out clips I shot last weekend due to the auto iris controls. I would get it set and then forget to lock it :( This makes me happy!

just got the T1i for 720p only, almost identical video as the 5D Mk. II (not quite as shallow DOF). I really hope it gets an update as well. Awesome technology.

It's a very serious shortcoming which hopefully will be addressed, one way or the other.
Please point me towards a detailed explanation of what I'm missing for want of 25p in MkII?

Yep this is truly awesome. My 5D MKII just increased in value! Now if they could do something for the housing market! :)

I keep checking B&H for the 5DM2 kit to be in stock. I guess even if ordered today, I would be waiting on Canon for the firmware. I'm just more than excited right now.

People will whine and complain until the 5D cures cancer and world hunger. Until then, it's useless;)

Thank you Canon for giving us manual control! Canon could've easily released a different version of this camera with manual controls, and I would've bought it. But instead, they do the miraculous... They give us a free firmware update. Oh, happy day. I've always been a Canon fanboy... But now I'm loyal customer for life. This is too good. Tramm, thanks for propelling Canon in this direction, and getting them woke up on this whole thing. I am celebrating all day. I'm floating! 24p? 24p? We'll see. Make it happen Canon. I love my 5dmII.

Well, to be fair to those who remain persistent in their requests from Canon, without them we probably wouldn't have gotten anything at all.
It's also important to remember that on the list of requested features, 24/25p did rank high, certainly in the top 3 requested features.

1. Manual Exposure Control (Iris, shutter, ISO)
2. 24/25p
3. Manual Audio Control (currently being worked on by Tramm for the 5DMkFree hack)

I knew Canon's main priority was to stop the bleeding of people going out and buying Nikon's lenses with adapters.
So as of right now, Canon addressed one of the 3 top requests, but didn't bother with the others. Stu Maschwitz of ProLost helped to initiate the first round of firestorms against Canon, and even with the firmware update he isn't letting up because he knows how important 24p is.
Canon obviously knows now who these features appeal to, yet the absence of 24p really raises concerns about whether or not the indie filmmaker's interests have really been taken into account.

I feel like a kid who just learned that mom really did get him that candy apple red bicycle for Christmas (yay!) - but the big day is still almost a week away. I can hardly wait!
