Canon has announced a few improvements for the EOS 5D Mark II DSLR. The manufacturer is offering a firmware update which offers users more flexibility with the camera’s HD movie mode. The announcement was made on May 27, and the free upgrade was made available from the camera’s support Web site on June 1.

 

With this update, The Canon EOS 5D Mark II will gain full aperture selection along with manual control over shutter speeds from 1/30-1/4000th of a second, and ISO speeds from 100-6400, H1, and Auto. The firmware upgrade also fixes some translations in foreign-language menus and corrects battery information when the optional battery grip is attached.

 

The 21.1-megapixel EOS 5D Mark II DSLR was released in September 2008 and includes a high-definition movie mode. It records 1920 x 1080-pixel video at a full 30 frames per second. This makes it enticing to wedding and news photographers, who increasingly find themselves wanting to work with both media. The Canon EOS 5D Mark II retails for $2,699.
