Local film/video gonzo Lonny Quattlebaum tipped me off that the Canon 5D MkII, a Swiss Army knife sort of still camera that shoots great video, will get a firmware update “allowing users to shoot in full HD using manual exposure controls including ISO, aperture and shutter speed.”
This is great news for those who prefer to override the fully automatic setup now on the camera.
While the Eagle hasn’t yet purchased any 5D MkIIs for the photo staff, several of us have ponied up the dinero ourselves to at least keep up with the video/multimedia curve.
