Hi there, I am an agrevated Canon 5D MKII owner that lives in a country where the video system used is PAL (New Zealand). My fundamental question is concerning a setting called 'VIDEO SYSTEM' in the menu. It has obviously 2 alternatives; NTSC or PAL. I propose that Canon are pulling the wool over our eyes in the offer of this adjustment because it does absolutely nothing!
Did they intend originally to sell the camera with the ability to capture video at 29.97fps AND 25fps, but then decided it was not important? Then in keeping with this slackness, forgot to remove the setting from the menu?
Did they include the setting just to throw agrevated owners that are suffering from 'Transcoding Blues' off the trail to the already in-accessible people at Canon?
I think both personally. They got impatient and greedy (oh they were already greedy) and put the camera out before it was truely complete, and then left the setting in place on purpose. What do you all think? Or am I wrong and the setting does do something, if so what?
