I dont know if this has been answered. But im goign to be buying a mk2 soon and was wondering about the video. Ive heard that you can only take a 15 min clip and then have to wait for he to cool down. Is this true?

That is true for the 5D2 and also the 7D and any other Canon DSLR that shoots video. It's a well known limitation in the filesystem used on the memorycards which limits the maximum filesize to 4GB. Normally this is never a problem because a approx 15 minute unedited long filmed sequence of some subject will be pretty boring to watch. :)

The 5D mk2 is an incredible device. Our company uses 3 of them all the time for video, say what you want but I love the quality and the ability to use all my lenses.

As for the cool down warm up - depends on how u are shooting, the main heat I found came from the screen being on, if you have an external display (or a laptop/pc via usb port) then you will never run inot a heating issue (just last night I shot a 2 and half hour show with a 5d as the main back cam and a 7D as the side cams for closeups 70-200 mm on the 5d worked really nicely but to shoot shows like this i recommnd relly getting to know the camera, have LOTS of memory cards (we use 16gb) and have somone dedicated to clearing your cards for you as the other 2-3 people operate the cameras)

12:11 on 1920 x 1080 23.976 fps is the maximum clip - a 16 GB card fits roughly 40 mins of video.

you are also going to need a VERY powerfull computer to process all the files, and LOTS of harddrive space.


I use a {3+2}D Mark [10-8] and a (23-16)D and a Nikon D(75+75)x2s and a Nikon D(38+2)x

I would recommend getting a stabilizer - depending on your budget you can build one from a tripod. :D good luck and make sure to show us the video after.

im hoping its good. Its for my cousins friend and they know i havent even used the mk2 yet. But im hoping to have a couple days practicing. They pretty much just want the camera on a tripod and hit record. I can do that but really dont. Id rather get clips of there vows from each perspective etc. but will see how it goes.

to be honest I would het a 7D instead, its lighter - and has 60 fps mode - if you want to do some creative slo motion forget about doing it on a 5D (you can do it but it take much more time and the use of after effects and twixtor)

Here's a wedding video I did with 60D, T2i, Gh2.

Definitely keep it on a tripod or monopod if you don't have some kind of shoulder support or steadicam.

There are many application for slow motion, none of which are your examples.

Thats a good video, nice job. Thats the stuff i want to do and love. The couple really just wants me to put the camera on a tripod and hit record thats it. So ill try my own things and iff they dont work its no biggie then since they just want the basic stuff.
