Vincent Laforet has a very, very interesting post up about the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It features the first shots from the camera, and while they are stunning in their own right (Vincent shoots some of the best photos on the planet, so no surprise there), the most amazing thing is that they’re shot while in video mode. That’s right. They’re straight from the RAW .mov file that the camera produces when recording 1080p video. Simply astounding. I’m getting one. Hands down.
For more information about the EOS 5D Mark II and the video mode, NRKBeta has a long article analyzing the video output from the beast itself. I can’t wait. Too bad the price here in Norway is above USD 4000, so it’s actually cheaper to fly to the US, buy it and fly back to Norway. NRKBeta gives you even more images of the EOS 5D Mark II, an incredible piece of engineering. Time to start drooling!
