Canon’s latest firmware for the EOS 5D Mark II - Version 2.0.4 - that adds five enhancements to the camera’s EOS MOVIE functions, plus a fix to the manual sensor cleaning function, is now available for download.

Canon apologises for any inconvenience caused to customers by suspending the availability of the Version 2.0.3 firmware and is now introducing the Version 2.0.4 firmware. This firmware corrects the malfunction that occurred in the previous Version 2.0.3 firmware, in which the manual recording level changed and made recording impossible.

Customers who have the Version 2.0.3 firmware on their EOS 5D Mark II cameras should update the firmware to Version 2.0.4.

In the Version 2.0.4 firmware, the following phenomena that occurred with the Version 2.0.3 firmware (which was to enhance the movie functions) have been corrected.

There was a phenomenon in which the manual recording settings made in C1/C2/C3 were changed and sound could not be recorded if manual sound recording was used in the C1/C2/C3 settings and the camera was subsequently turned off (or if Auto Power Off was activated). This does not occur in modes other than C1/C2/C3.

The Version 2.0.4 firmware includes the movie function enhancements listed in items 1 through 5 below, and also incorporates the correction listed in item 6.

The exact enhancements and fixes are as follows:

  1. Adds or changes the following movie frame rates.
    • NTSC:
      • 1920×1080: 30fps (changed - actual 29.97 fps).
      • 1920×1080: 24fps (added - actual 23.976 fps).
      • 640×480: 30fps (changed - actual 29.97 fps).
    • PAL:
      • 1920×1080: 25fps (added - actual 25.0 fps).
      • 1920×1080: 24fps (added - actual 23.976 fps).
      • 640×480: 25fps (added - actual 25.0 fps).
  2. Adds a function for manually adjusting the sound recording level (64 levels).
  3. Adds a histogram display (brightness or RGB) for shooting movies in manual exposure.
  4. Adds shutter-priority AE mode (Tv) and aperture-priority AE (Av) mode to the exposure modes for shooting movies.
  5. Changes the audio sampling frequency from 44.1 KHz to 48 KHz.
  6. Fixes a phenomenon where communication between the camera and the attached lens is sometimes interrupted after manual sensor cleaning. Note - this phenomenon only affects cameras with Firmware Version 1.2.4.

Firmware Version 2.0.4 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.3. If the camera's firmware is already 2.0.4 it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Movies captured using EOS 5D Mark II cameras with Firmware Version 1.1.0 to 1.2.4 can be played back on cameras updated with Firmware Version 2.0.4. However, if you try to play back movies captured with a camera with the new firmware on a camera with a previous firmware version, a message, ‘Cannot play back image’, appears on the camera's LCD monitor.

It’s recommended that you use the latest Canon applications to edit movies captured with EOS 5D Mark II cameras that have the latest firmware. Some previous versions of the applications don’t support movie-editing functions and the frame rates that are added or changed by the latest firmware.

The latest Canon applications are as follows:

  • ZoomBrowser EX Version 6.5.0 or later (compatible operating systems: Windows XP/Vista/7).
  • ImageBrowser Version 6.5.0 or later (compatible operating systems: Mac OSX v10.4/10.5/10.6).

In addition to the enhancements to the movie function, the instruction manual for the camera has also been revised. Users are asked to download both the latest firmware and the latest instruction manual.

Please note that before downloading Firmware Version 2.0.4 you should read the entire contents of the page linked to above.
