Canon states that they will be releasing a firmware upgrade sometime in March 2010 for their EOS 5D Mark II. This 2.0.3 update will add 24p video to the camera's existing 30 fps, full 1080p HD recording capability. Additionally, the upgrade changes that 30p rate to 29.97 to comply with television standards.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II is a full-frame DSLR and was announced in September of 2008.
