We just now received word from Canon that manual exposure firmware updates for the 5D Mark II DSLR camera will be coming soon. Canon says the new firmware update is to accommodate the many user requests they've received for manual exposure control while using the 5D it in video mode.
A true video or photographic artist must have complete control over focus, exposure, and shutter, and although the manual exposure control was there when shooting stills, the 5D reverted to auto control when set for video recording. To video producers, "auto" is a 4-letter word!
