Canon, on the other hand, gives you the false impression that they are a billion-dollar corporation with dozens of software engineers, but is in fact just a single guy working from a basement in Tokyo for free, collaborating with a few other individual who donate their time as well. It's no wonder they can't add 24p in a short amount of time.
Man! I take these forums too seriously. It took me way too long for this joke to hit me upside the head!

Meanwhile... I'm jazzed 24p is coming to the 5D. In the meantime there are a number of workarounds reported here and elsewhere months ago, and there's the 7D and GH1 as well. 5D just became a definite keeper with this announcement.

Wow, wouldn't it be nice if they also added 60p to the same firmware upgrade for the sport and event shooters. 60p would give the ability to do the smooth slow motion.

Daniel, that is a potential "post of the century" candidate you have there. Brilliant stuff.

I would just like to correct the record: at no time have I attempted to mislead people by claiming that I am programming in a basement. None of my locations around the world have basements.

Other than that one exception, your post is 100% accurate.

In fact the firmware is finished and ready to download. Or is there anyone who believe it is different from the one in 7D?

The reason why we have to wait a few more months is that the legal department in Tramm Towers basement and Canon's alcoholic attorney wont be able to come to an agreement on the royalties and rights in shorter time.

I heard TRAMM/Hudson Corp. is actually a branch of Skynet.

Hey Guys damn this is good news. I always trusted my instinct that something will come good to the 5D. Thank you for the laught too. Do you think Edge finder is too hard to add to the firmware along with the super good new 24p and 25p capable of the 5D. Or maybe we have to wait for Tram to making that happen????

Oh, that's a relief -- I kind of had my suspicions that he was working for Keyser Söze.

To bring back some seriousness :) Is anybody else concerned that the frame rate update could mess up Magic Lantern? I mean the conversion obviously will be done in software and will need extra processing power. Just a thought.

I must say I'm generally concerned when I see that ML gets bigger and bigger with each release. Are the processors in the 5D really that underemployed? All I really need from ML is the AGC deactivation and maybe the histogram. Therefore a "light" version with autoboot added that safely works on a future 24/25/30 fps 5D would be sufficient for me.
