I'm new here. Trying to understand a limitation on the 5D MKII.

What I don't understand - is the fact that this DSLR only shoots 30p a hardware limitation or software limitation?

I mean, why is the Sony EX1 able to have a "bevy of output settings that lets users take advantage of fast and slow motion, as well as popular framerates such as the "film-like" 24p mode"??? Again, is this due to the EX1's hardware or software? Or both?

Please, someone enlighten me.

I guess I was a little confused by Stu's petition ...

... as if 24p is just a phone call away.

It only has 30p mode because if it had 24p mode, then nobody would buy any of canon's camcorders.

Because that is a huge amount of image to process.
That IS a full frame sensor.

Video cameras are tiny in comparison.
