About the new firmware of the 5d... they dont say anything about 60fps. Do they?

I am not sure their current CPU can handle processing of 60 fps

yes but that's much lower than 1080 in terms of total nr of pixels to process! And 5D Mk II only has 640x480, but not 720...

btw, does 7D has the same CPU as 5D Mk II ?

I am new to video. What's the big deal about 24,25, 30 or 60 fps?
