Finally, a proper set of controls over sound and exposure.

The new firmware incorporates the following updates and benefits;
1) Frame rate added and changed to now include 24fps (cinema) and 25fps (PAL broadcast)
· Shoots a variety of frame rates, overcoming the need for compression
2) Movie shooting in shutter-priority AE (Tv) and aperture-priority AE (Av) modes
· Ensures users have greater creative control over the exposure and depth-of-field
3) Manual adjustment of sound recording level (64 levels)
· Greater creative control with the camera’s sound recording
4) Sampling frequency changed (from 44.1 KHz to 48 KHz)
· Makes video and audio synchronisation easier
5) Histogram display for shooting movies in manual exposure
6) Fixes a phenomenon[1] where communication between the camera and the attached lens is sometimes interrupted after manual sensor cleaning

Users will be able to download the firmware at canon.com.au in mid-March

?? It may change some work in post production, but it will still be compressed to hell by the codec saving the files in camera.

He means 30p to 24p "compression", frame rate compression not codec related.

Isn't this usually called pulldown?

Question: If we are rid of the auto-gain problem, does this mean I can find a relatively inexpensive shotgun mic that attaches to the flash shoe and produce decent audio?

I think that depends on your definition of decent audio !

My feeling is it will be adequate for someone speaking to camera

Im getting my head round setting up my gear for work right now and will use the 5d on a rig for runaround and keep the 7d on sticks with a SmallHD  monitor onboard and tascam sound recorder on board

sticks for interviews and hero shots - shoulder rig for picking up the rest
