Canon recently released a landmark firmware version 2.0.3. upgrade that upgraded AND added to the capability of the Canon 5d Mark II.  This upgrade serviced video capability and not much else.  They ran into a hitch though when their upgrade was discovered to have a bug so they pulled it off their update site.  A few days later version 2.0.4 was released to rectify the bug and now all is well.  I've personally upgraded my own 5d Mark II's firmware and everything is working as it should.

This isn't camera related but it is very cool.  A real life affordable and perhaps even practical personal jetpack!  We've all wanted one of these forever and now they're available, for less money than say a Mini Cooper goes for here in the Kingdom.  Now where do I attach my camera bag..
