Canon 5D Mark 2 Firmware 2.0.3 Update - 24/25fps Video

Canon announce new firmware 2.0.3 for Canon 5DII Camera which brings 24 and 25fps to the camera in addition to the original 30fps.

Unfortunately the one thing that the new firmware doesn't add is the ability to shoot at 720p at 50/60 fps as the Canon 7D can do. This would help to enable longer clips on a CF card and to shoot slow motion video and looks like it will only be possible using a Canon 7D, 1D4 or 550D now.
To celebrate the launch of the new firmware Canon commissioned Richard Walch to shoot an extreme sports movie using it.
