Canon confirms future firmware updates to include 24p video modes (also for M6II)

"Once downloaded, the free firmware updates will enable users to shoot 24p (23.98fps) in Full HD and 4K resolutions for the select models."

"The first Canon models to benefit from the new 24p (23.98fps) firmware will be the recently launched EOS 90D and EOS RP in late October. The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and G5 X Mark II will follow by the end of December and the EOS M6 Mark IIupdate will be available during 2020."

This could be really bad for this forum. Canon had better be careful not to come out with some more EF-M lenses, or there will be a lot of folks on this forum with nothing to complain about.

This is the part of the press release I find most impressive, "In response to customer feedback about the recently launched EOS and PowerShot models, Canon Europe will introduce 24p (23.98fps) mode for video recording"

Adding customer requested features via firmware update?  That must be a first for Canon.  Kudos!

More than 24fps the M6 II badly needs Live Crop modes up to 5X "Zoom" for Stills and Video to take advantage of the 32MP sensor.

Even the lowest Powershot and all the Phones can do that why not this $900 dedicated travel camera?

Another big deal would be to add the 4K video in crop mode which the 90D already has and offers true 4K quality.

That's why Canon is being considerate in implementing the update on the M6ii last. They want to give folks more time to continue complaining, and to complain about getting their update last!!!:-D

But will Canon USA follow suit?

Re: Canon confirms future firmware updates to include 24p video modes (also for M6II)

Don't worry I put together a text file which has a rather long list of items which could be discussed.  It started with complaints about the M6 Ii before it was released. It includes EVF, features provided by the competition and even battery life. Even my favorite missing item from mirrorless cameras is no horizontal focusing. It grew much longer than I had thought it would be.

I am sure I saved it and could find it if needed.

Complaining helps, Alastair, complaining helps!  You might be a bit more thankful to the Sony trolls doing all the complaining for you.

Nothing to complain about? Hmmmm.

- Like you said: lenses (especially with faster AF)

- internal viewfinder

- A6400 AF

- IBIS

- headphone jack on the M cameras

- ....

If your facts are different we could save the peace just by calling it copy to copy variation.

Of course they will.  The firmware is all created by Canon Japan.  The subsidiaries just host the downloads.

A 5X crop of the 32mp sensor is only 1.3mp.  On the 24mp sensor it would be 1mp.  Seems utterly worthless either way.

Even the lowest Powershot and all the Phones can do that why not this $900 dedicated travel camera?

Another big deal would be to add the 4K video in crop mode which the 90D already has and offers true 4K quality.

How about firmware to add dual pixel focusing for 4k video shooting on the M50 ??

What about it? It's not going to happen, so why bother raising the question?

This press release was not about m50.

It's cruel to burst the guy's bubble like that, given that he raises this request at every possible opportunity (I've lost count). Anyway, if I know that I'm going to crop an image in post, I get good results by switching to partial area metering.

In RAW burst mode, you get an 18MP crop, which is useful because you're often tracking something specific in the scene.

Not true, a 5X Crop on a 32MP sensor is 6.4MP which is plenty. (32/5=6.4)

Hell, even a typical moon shot with the EF-S 55-250 at the tele end you need 1MP to cover it, the rest is black dead space and the picture is very usable even with my M6.

The main point of the M series is to be a fun portable camera, so you are not supposed to be carrying a 400mm zoom monster with it when just a kit lens or the travel zoom like the 18-150 could do when using 5X crops.

Yes you can do crops in post but is not remotely the same for some many reasons.

I should hope not! My response was based on a very specific question 1) where the answer is obvious, and 2) would have been relevant if the M50 didn't support 24p and he was asking about that - given that adding 24p on specific cameras is what this entire thread is supposed to be about.
