The Tv mode will be useful when you have to shoot NOW. Set the camera to 1/50, let the camera auto expose, offset the exposure if needed, hit exposure lock and shoot. At least, that's how I expect it to work. I won't use it much, but if I'm in a hurry...

It's difficult to type and perform my happy dance at the same time, but that is what is going down.

The addition of manual audio level control is a bonus I honestly did not expect. I appreciate Canon going the extra mile to make the 5D II a true professional video solution for the type of work I do.

No 720p50/60 is a bit of a disappointment. Maybe a T2i will become the slow motion and long lens cam.

No HD over HDMI. Bummer. Looks like there's more opportunity for Magic Lantern...

YES!

No 60p is a bit disappointing, but the audio functionality is a nice bonus. It's nice to see Canon stepping things up. I love my 5D2 more than ever, heh...

The link works for me. Maybe you can try again, or clear your cache?

I totally agree with Jon, T2i/ 550D will be "the" B cam for the 5DmkII owners

Guys, this is great news for you 5DMkII owners. I can tell you that 50p (PAL) and 60p (NTSC) options being missing is not such a loss as you might think.

Only in special circumstances do I personally find the 50p acceptable on my 7D (because of the significantly increased moire/aliasing issues at this frame rate on Canon DSLRs). Sure, I love these frame rates on my EX3 (as that does not have these problems at all) but that's a very different tool and size of camera.

You've got some great new features coming to an already great camera. Rejoice!!! Just hope we get some of this goodness on the 7D one day - manual audio levels with meter and histogram for video, yes please!!!

Finally. Long time coming.

I watched the 2 clips a couple of times and I'll reserve final judgment until I see full hd on a large screen or projector, but his slow mo on the jumps looked pretty good.

I'm thinking they are going to be selling a whole lot more cameras.

Hope this will be a hidden feature - if not i think this is a hardware problem.

Question for everyone since it wasn't mentioned here:

I purchased Cineform's Neo Scene to convert my 30fps .mov files from my 5DMk2 to standard 29.97fps NTSC .avi files to work in Vegas on my Windows machine. Does this new firmware mean my Neo Scene will be obsolete?

Thanks,
Roy
