EOS Canon 5D Mark II HANDS ON with Video & Picture Sample!!!
David’s back from Canon’s Shinagawa press conference where they introduced the new EOS 5D Mark II.
As promised, he gives his feelings about this new beast, with the most important thing…. Pictures and video samples of the 5D!!
But notice the pictures are only a BRIEF SHOOT taken by Canon’s staff. We can’t guarantee how good the pictures are, but they’ll give you an idea of what the new 5D can do!
According to David, Canon’s DSLR is physically very similar to the 5D and very pleasant to shoot with it. It’s also faster than the previous version and quieter (perfect for taking pictures with total discretion). It also has a stereo mic In (jack), and a built-in mono mic. It sounds perfect for video shooting…
However, the video doesn’t seem to be as good as we expected, particularly in full HD resolution. Yes, image quality is very clear, but the colors are strange so we can’t be categorical… Too there were a lot of journalists, and the DSLR’s settings could have gotten messed up. Just watch the video samples.
The LiveView was surprising. It displayed very odd colors as seen in the video sample… At the moment, the Canon 5D Mark II is not that impressive. We’re HUGE FANS of the 5D and it’s is HARD TO BELIEVE this new version of Canon’s flagship is worth less. Moreover, the room’s lighting wasn’t very good (as you can see in picture gallery taken with our 30D… Sorry we didn’t have the time to make the white balance).
So we’ll wait to get it here at Akihabara News before giving you our opinion!
