Sep 25th, 2008 | By | Category: Digital Video Recorder

Vincent Laforet filmed this short video that demonstrates the image quality of the Canon EOS 5D MKII. 

The footage is amazing enough – but the fact that it was shot with a consumer DLSR is even more amazing. The camera can shoot about 8 minutes straight of higher than HD video. 

The camera is expected to sell for about $2,700 (body), which puts it beyond the range of many, but also brings state-of-the-art digital video quality within the range of a lot of people. 

Here are the specs on the new camera:


  • New 21.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
  • New Full HD 1080 resolution movie recording
  • 3.9 frames per second continuous shooting
  • High performance DIGIC 4 providing superb image quality
  • Maximum 310 large JPEG images in a single burst with a UDMA card
  • 3.0” VGA (920k dots) Clear View LCD
  • ISO 100-6400 (expansion from 50 up to 25,600)
  • 9 AF points + 6 Assist AF points
