Canon EOS5Dii customers: firmware upgrade 2.0.3 now available

This question is answered

There is a firmware update release from  Canon on the EOS5Dii for customers to upgrade their camera. Firmware Version 2.0.3 incorporates five enhancements to the movie function and a fix to the manual sensor cleaning function of the EOS 5D Mark II camera.

 

  1. Adds or changes the following movie frame rates.


NTSC: 
 

  • 1920×1080 : 30 fps (changed - actual 29.97 fps)
  • 1920×1080 : 24 fps (added - actual 23.976 fps)
  • 640×480 : 30 fps (changed - actual 29.97 fps)

PAL:  

  • 1920×1080 : 25 fps (added - actual 25.0 fps)
  • 1920×1080 : 24 fps (added - actual 23.976 fps)
  • 640×480 : 25 fps (added - actual 25.0 fps)

 

  1. Adds a function for manually adjusting the sound recording level (64 levels).
  2. Adds a histogram display (brightness or RGB) for shooting movies in manual exposure.
  3. Adds shutter-priority AE mode (Tv) and aperture-priority AE (Av) mode to the exposure modes for shooting movies.
  4. Changes the audio sampling frequency from 44.1 KHz to 48 KHz.
  5. Fixes a phenomenon where communication between the camera and the attached lens is sometimes interrupted after manual sensor cleaning. (This phenomenon only affects units with Firmware Version 1.2.4.)

  • Canon just had to release an additional firmware update to fix a problem with manual recording in version 2.0.3. The latest version that you need to download now is 2.0.4. If you updated the firmware to 2.0.3 before this problem was caught and updated then I suggest going ahead and updating to the latest verison so you don't experience any problems with the manual recording. You can download the latest firmware update here.
