Does anyone know if this function will ever be added to the 5d with a firmware update? I really like this option and I'm still very torn between purchasing a 5d or 7d. Thanks Everyone!

Rather than wait for the 5D2 firmware, I bought the 7D partly because of the 60 fps and have been making money ever since. If the 5D2 does offer an upgrade, or a new replacement comes out, I'll get that.

Not likely, the processor inside the 5D mark II is unable to handle it. Better wait for the mark III, or use an extra 7D as body.

I have both a 5D mark II and a 7D and it gives you much more flexibility:
- doing shoots from two angles with two bodies
- 50/60fps with 7D
- Extended zoom because of 1.6 crop on 7D (e.g. 70-200 becomes a 112-320 on the 7D).
- Back-up in case of failure
- Ability to join the Canon Professional Services (CPS) for quick repair when one of those bodies breaks/drops/dies on you.

I highly doubt it. It would surprise me greatly if Canon did release a 60p firmware update...that's if the 5DM2 can handle it.

Plus, I would bet that Canon has some new presents for us under development...something like the Panasonic AG-AF100 (it made it’s sneak debut at NAB this year). They probably will leave the 5DM2 in the dust while this is being worked on...plus they wouldn't want the 5DM2 to compete with a new and awesome video camera. Loss of potential moneys.

Later,
Ryan

A Canon rep told me that the camera cant support that codec.
