Check out this video taken with a pre-release 5D Mk II. Shot with a 400/2.8LIS and 2x converter, 3200 ISO. Incredible detail and clarity (and did I mention ISO 3200? ).

One thing I am quickly realizing about the 5DII... naysayers of video mode say "If I wanted HD video I'd get an HD video camera!"

The 5DII takes better HD video than just about any video camera money can buy!

that's really cool. Couple of years from now, all the DSLRs will have this feature. Good on Nikon and Canon for getting this going. For us casual shooter the video from both these cameras is more than adequate.


Love this forum, even though I shoot with dark side. :D

Prob some truth in that, because of the lenses you can put on it
Wonder what the resolution of a frame is if you edited it and chopped a frame out of the video and printed it??? is this the start to the end of still life photography as we know it?

Did you note that this was taken with a 400 f/2.8 lens with a 2x TC? Sweet -- better keep this camera away from us birders or we'll all be in trouble:)!

Very nice. It's especially interesting that we'll be able to use lenses like the 400/2.8 with teleconverters. My interest for this camera is rising.

It's an HD video size frame: 1920x1080 or 2 megapixels versus a the 5D II still image of 21 megapixels. In order for it to do video with all the pixels it'd have to render 10 times the data and have 10 times the storage capacity. It'll happen someday but don't hold your breath.

Gotta admit, I was very skeptical about Video on SLR's, but the technology could be used for a revolution, My only worry is storage, being somewhat a videographer myself I prefer tapes because it's always uncompressed and untampered, I would consider the 5DII as my next camera provided there was an accessory that outputted the data to tapes, I would be really interested....

I wonder if they have a video tape deck that could take a USB input -- I'd imagine those would be common at this juncture.

That's really nice. Although I still don't see myself getting into video, after all my compact has it and I've felt the need to use it only a couple of times. You just can't hang a video on a wall, and showing someone a picture is much easier/friendly than making them sit through ages of video.
Useful addition, but can't see it being for me.
