Why Full Manual Control Is Missing…

I’ve just received insider information from Canon.
Someone I know, who had to make a video clip for a well known music star in Switzerland, spoke to a higher-up from Canon.

They told him that the release of the 5D Mark II was actually not planned for October but rather for Spring 2009.
But since Nikon released a video DSLR (D90) they were forced to also release one.
Originally full manual control was planned but they couldn’t finish it by the time of the release.
This of course explaines also the low suply from Canon.

Well if this is true we have a good chance to see a firmware update soon.

    that would make total sense, and i will keep all my fingers and toes crossed that it’s true. Especially since the Panasonic just released theirs. Still holding a hopeful nature!

    I think thats just a bunch of rubbish damage control.

    They did not work together on this camera with teh different divisions/teams, what not. Thus its a half baked concept.

    I think what you are hearing is in response now to th enew camera on the blocks that is designed for both, with lens that are made to both shooting modes…

    Dont get me wrong, I have one and like the camera; But Canon as an intelligent operation has gone south.

    this insider info is corporate palaver. Manual control isn’t there due to $, corporate scheming, video division.

    Now with the announcement of panasonic GH1 canon is challenged to do so.

    But panasonic will forever be the fist one to announce the DSLR with full manual video control – a co. that didnt worry about $, video division jeopardy, etc. and simply lead the way.

    Probably Nikon (wich doesn’t have video division) will also implement full HD Movie mode in DSLR.

    So, there is no doubt that Canon will improve their own implementation, giving manual control, and maybe other features.

    This is just the beginning.

    Since professionals have been complaining loudly online about the lack of manual controls on the 5D MII it seems to me that Canon should have come up with a firmware fix some time ago. One would suspect other motives (like not competing with their video cameras) for not fixing it but perhaps its just a case of a huge corporation moving a lot slower than they should.

    Regardless of whether you keep your coffee maker out in the counter or accumulated out in
    the cabinet, recall to put it as part of someplace in which it will be separated from nutrients
    splatters or perhaps as part of continued contact alongside give.

    I really like my personal bialetti coffee maker and think it probably will make the
    very best coffee of all of the many choices about and now
    I have moved at my personal brand new home containing
    a fuel cooker we am going which will make the efforts to make use of it
    much more usually.
