    Hello there! I was wondering what the actual framerate is for the Canon 5D MkII (29.97, 30?) and how that would effect my editing in FCP. I Have found different results in my searches. Thanks so much!
    Best always, Steve.

    The 5D is 30p. A full 30

    are you recording synced sound or using camera for audio?

    Canon has announced that “sometime” in the new year they’ll release a firmware update to let the camera do 24p. With the 7D and now the 1D Mark IV doing 24 (23.98), 25, 30 (29.97), 50 and 60 (59.94) I can’t imagine that the firmware update will only allow for 24 and keep 30 as the only other frame rate. It would seem logical to me that the update would give 5D MKII users the ability to leverage all the frame rates including the fractional frame rates.

    Hello Richard and thanks! For the moment I do not intend on using the camera for sound, but in the future this may change.
    Best always, Steve.

    Thanks Robbie. Yes I heard about that announcement. I have been so far conforming my footage to 29.97 as per recommendation and wonder if I really need to be doing this, as some other sources tell me the camera actually shoots 29.97.
    Best always, Steve.

    [steve martin] “as some other sources tell me the camera actually shoots 29.97. “

    5DMK II is shooting true 30fps not fractional frame rate of 29.97
