The Canon 5D Mark III that's expected to officially launch on March 2 has shown up on the CanonRumors forums. There will be at least two events to unveil it, with one in France and the other in Singapore. The unconfirmed specs include a 22-megapixel sensor and a 61-point autofocus system.
Manual audio level control now available
Canon has announced a firmware update for its full-frame EOS 5D Mark II camera. Version 2.0.3 offers several changes to the video frame rate, adding a 24p mode and bringing the 30p speed down to 29.97 to comply with television production standards.
Specs on Canon 5D Mark II
A French Canon DSLR news site claims to have the newest updates on the specifications of the upcoming Canon 5D Mark II. The new report has the camera using a 24MP, 24x36mm CMOS sensor and a new grip making up the magnesium alloy case. Like the recently unveiled D90 from competitor Nikon, the 5D Mark II allegedly offers a similar movie recording mode, previously reported as being capable of recording HD content. The same DIGIC IV sensor that debuted on the 50D, which was unveiled in late August, will also be used on the 5D MkII.
