Welcome to the forum. You might get a lot of insight by looking at several of the forum threads on the Canon 5D MK II. It shoots with a slightly modified .MOV format and CODEC. Do a search for "Canon 5D MK II," here and also limit that search to People - choose Jeff Bellune. He commented on most of those threads. You will get a lot of good info.
Will do, thanks Hunt
I have tried dozens of things and have spent hours on hold with adobe and I can't make it play properly.
After spending several days on this and reading many articles like this http://www.cameratown.com/reviews/adobe/premiereprocs4/
I have decided to get a refund on this product.
Adobe's tech support from India is terrible, they aren't even aware there is a problem with 30 fps video nor are they Premiere users.
Adobe should have already had encoders that could fix this problem and they don't Adobe encoder should be able to handle this and it can't.
http://www.divideframe.com/?p=store has a fix for $99 if you aren't a mac user, this is something Adobe should have had as a part of the program.
It seems odd to me that I-movie can handle these files and a $1,000 program like Premiere can't.
I spent an hour on hold for customer service before I had to give up on monday. Yesterday I was on hold for three hours. While on hold I phoned there direct number in silicon valley and finally got a hold of someone.
This once great company that I have been buying stuff from since 1995 (Photoshop 3) has gone to crap.
When my refund is complete (8 to 10 days) I will give final cut a try but maybe I-movie will have to do.
