As you’ve probably seen the firmware upgrade for the EOS 5D Mk II is now available (link below).

Whilst most of the news and blog posts have focused on the additional of a function to allow manual exposure control when shooting HD Movies is does contain some other improvements and fixes. So even if you are not interested in the manual exposure feature it may be worthwhile installing it.

Firmware Version 1.1.0 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

  1. Includes a function to enable the manual exposure setting when shooting movies.
  2. Fixes a phenomenon where the peripheral illumination of images cannot be properly corrected, even if the images were captured with the lens peripheral illumination correction function set to Enable.
  3. Fixes incorrect indications on the Arabic, Romanian, Spanish, and Ukrainian menu screens.
  4. Changes the battery information displayed on the camera when using the optional Battery Grip BG-E6.

    I really like the sound of the manual exposure control for video mode, it could offer a wealth of possibilities. Orginally I was never keen on DSLR cameras ahving video but I can really start to see the opportunities such festures could offer.
