    Hi
    I am going to buy the 5DmarkII but I have this question:
    the 24P (if it will come, in the end) will be a software or hardware upgrade?
    It would be really annoying to buy a 5d and then Canon perhaps releases a 5dmarkII.1 with hardware changings supporting 24p.....

    NO one who knows this is telling

    This is the digital era, this years technology is this years technology, valuless next year or at least superceded

    I would suggest that $300 per month for shooting the 5d is worth it even if it goes in the bin after 10 months - which it wont

    The bin !

    You are a richer man than me, when my 5DII becomes obsolete I am going to hollow it out and live in the carcass.

    Since it already shoots at a higher framerate than the wanted 24p/25p, this should be doable via an altered firmware...

    That's funny!

    Seriously, it will always have value as a top notch still camera.

    Rumor is that it will be a firmware update. There's a link somewhere in the 5dmkii section. I'll see if I can find it when I'm not browsing on my phone.
    "Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee."

    I've been told it's a firmware update. Apparently they have had some quality issues and it's still being tested.

    Firmware update has basically been promised from known sources who've either directly worked with the updated camera or directly know individuals who have worked with the updated camera.
    For this reason, it's really become more than just a rumor, it feels more like a guarantee from these people.
    I had first seen confirmation from some people on Scarletuser.
    Some people suggest that it will arrive as a firmware update if(when) Nikon updates the D3 and/or D700 FX cameras to have 1080 24p. Similar to how Canon updated it with manual control soon before the GH1 shipped.
