Reader Eugenia commented on my last post (the 60th comment!) that she’d called Canon’s product feedback line and politely requested a choice of HD video frame rates on the 5D MarkII. If you care about 24p support on the 5D and would like to see it added in a future firmware update, please do the same.
I called (800) 828-4040, for the US. I pressed then the 3rd option, and the guy was set up to take feedback immediately…
She requested both 24 and 25 fps modes, as well as the NTSC speeds of 29.97 and 23.976 fps. I plan on simply requesting 23.976, and mentioning that as an owner of the original 5D, this feature alone would be enough to make me upgrade immediately.
Please do call and make your voice heard. This blog has gotten a record number of visits and comments in the last few days. There are definitely enough of us who care about this to catch Canon’s attention.
