Cool video shot with the Canon 5D Mark II


Update: David shares his experience shooting with the Canon 5D MKII

Photojournalist David Stephenson with the Lexington Herald-Leader got a hold of a Canon 5D Mark II and shot a wonderful video with it. Said Stephenson on a Facebook post:

Here’s a first edit of a video shot with the new 5DMKII DSLR from Canon. It was a good test – crappy, low light, wireless mic. Mostly handheld (but tripod on the interviews) and shot all with the kit lens, 24-105mm f/4 IS. I’m sold. Goodbye XH-A1.

What I want  know David is how easy was it to edit the files? Was framing and handling easy? How about focusing? I really like the shallow depth-of-field–it gives the video a film-like feel. Nice work! Also kudos to the narrator Amy Wilson.

  1. The depth of field he gets out of the lens – for video – is amazing and looks beautiful. Wow.

    (But I’m not giving up my XH A1 just yet 🙂 )

  2. Hi,
    Will this camera be able to produce HD video with no ghosting when creating a dolly shot, pan shot or a steady cam shot?
