New firmware ends Canon C300 Mark II’s slow mo issues

We’re huge fans of the C300 Mark II, so when it turned out to have a nasty glitch that made it skip frames when you shot in slow motion, we were a sorry lot. However, Canon have now worked their way back into our good books with some bug-fixing firmware. 

Canon-EOS-C300-Mark-II

The new firmware, available from the Canon site here, addresses an issue that resulted in frames being skipped or dropped when recording 4K at 24.00P and 23.98P, or 2K/HD at 29.97P, 25.00P, 24.00P, and 23.98P.

Canon’s official release notes warn us that we cannot perform this firmware update using CFast 2.0 cards, and will instead need to avail ourselves of a commercially available SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card that is 64MB or more for the firmware update. You’ll also want to back up your custom menu and features settings to a separate card before beginning, as these will be reset during the upgrade.
