Updating r4ds ii to iii upgrade
Up to now, the EOS 5D Mark II’s built-in audio recording has automatically adjusted its level for recording, and the only possible way for the user to change this was to attach third-party devices to the camera. 2.0.4 is installed, video pros and enthusiasts will have the option of manual recording level (audio gain) control, over a 64-step range, selectable right on the camera’s menu.While the menu display will show level meters for Left and Right stereo input, please note that this upgrade will not allow users to separately adjust L/R stereo balance.The EOS 5D Mark II’s video capabilities created more than a stir when the camera was introduced in late 2008.Its spectacular HD image quality, low-light performance, and shallow depth-of-field suddenly gave the industry a new breed of camera with amazing imaging potential at a [relatively] very low cost.
Aperture will also be adjusted if still needed, but this is secondary and minimized where possible.
These same professional users frequently requested additional functionality, to make the EOS 5D Mark II more flexible to their needs: Manual exposure capability was a common request, and Canon’s engineers listened and developed a firmware upgrade in late 2009 that gave the EOS 5D Mark II that capability.
Subsequently released EOS HD-SLRs such as the EOS 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV incorporated the wider range of standard frame rates that users were asking for.
Furthermore, the EOS 5D Mark II’s true 30.00 fps (at 30 fps setting) differed from the NTSC-standard of 29.97 fps, sometimes making video editing and matching with audio a problem.
With firmware v.2.0.4 installed, the following frame rates are now available in the EOS 5D Mark II: At 1920x1080: Note: Firmware v.
