Canon EOS 5D Mark II to get 60FPS 720p in spring

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

According to unofficial sources, Canon prepares to upgrade the firmware for its high-end SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II. With this update camera should be able to capture high-definition video at a speed of 60 frames per second.

Permission for filming at such a speed, unfortunately, does not make it to the indicator of 1920 by 1080 and stop at the level of 1280 x 720 pixels, as in the model Canon EOS 7D. However, when shooting video at a speed of 60 frames per second should look beautiful and show more detail than at half that rate, available on the existing version of firmware Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

According to the commentary in the chat Online Tradeshow, referred to upgrade the firmware to be released next spring. In addition, the five-minute video, the representative of Canon mentioned that this update will be released in the first half of 2010 and, eventually, become available and less expensive brand SLR.
