Canon 5D Mark II Unboxing!!

*****ERRATUM*****

The version we use is a BETA version.

This morning we received Cannon’s latest jewel, the famous 5D Mark II, and we’ve just unboxed it!

First impressions:

The 5D Mark II looks like a 1Ds Mark III, but with a DIGIC IV processor. We were surprised by the battery format, it’s not compatible with the old version! Now it provides a capacity of 1800mAh with 7.2V, the previous one provided 1390mAh and 7.4V.

Lots of new things: quieter, faster, shoots nice pictures (with its 21 Mpix sensor, if you don’t have a good lens you may get some chromatic aberration)… and a Full HD video recording function that provides great images!

It’s true when we got it hands-on at the official press conference, we were a bit disappointed. There were certainly some setting problems…

David was re-motivated to test it, and gave it a nice review. Wait & see!!

Here’s two picture samples we took today!
