It seems that Canon have already begun to deliver on their promise made earlier this month to add 24p video recording into some of their most recent mirrorless cameras and DSLRs.
Today, the company released a firmware update for both the EOS RP and the Canon 90D. Furthermore, the software in question will improve the compatibility of the Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM and f/1.2L lenses on both cameras once installed.
The absence of a 24p recording option was one of the biggest complaints from most EOS RP shooters who consider this as a must-have feature and an essential part of their video-oriented workflow.
That’s the main reason why Canon promised to add 24p recording to the EOS RP and 90D at the beginning of this month alongside the PowerShot G7 X Mark III and G5 X Mark II, and the EOS M6 Mark II afterward.
Fortunately, with the release of firmware version 1.4.0 and 1.1.1 respectively, the EOS RP and the Canon 90D can now both take advantage of this functionality.
Firmware version 1.4.0 for the EOS RP gets the 24p mode when shooting in Full HD while the Canon 90D will be able to capture both 4K and Full HD video in 24p (23.98p). So, if you own either of these cameras, head over to the Canon’s official website to download the latest firmware right away.
If you’re an owner of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III or G5 X Mark II, however, you will have to wait by the end of December to get this feature unlocked, whereas the EOS M6 Mark II shooters will get the 24p update somewhere next year.
