Canon EOS M6 Mark II users, in case you missed it, Canon has in March released firmware version 1.1.0 that gives the camera the new ability to capture 1080p and 4K movies at 23.98p. Before this update, the mirrorless camera could already record 4K at 25 and 29.97 fps and Full HD at 25, 29.97, 50 and 59.94fps, and 100 and 119.88fps slow motion.

Some context: last year, many users were unhappy to find that their new EOS and PowerShot cameras weren’t able to shoot at 24p across all resolutions. Canon heard the complaints and promised in October to gradually release updates to bring 24p mode to select cameras. The EOS RP and 90D got it in end October, the PowerShot G7 X Mark III and G5 X Mark II got it in December — and now, it’s the EOS M6 Mark II’s turn.

In addition to 24p mode, firmware v1.1.0 also addresses a couple of bugs on the M6 II, including the issue where the focus position of the lens reverts to the home position if the camera powers off due to the Auto Power Off setting during Interval Timing shooting and the camera's occasional inability to auto-focus at the edges of the image area.
