OMG watch what a dSLR can make in a movie

Wow, Canon let a guy who doesn’t make movies borrow the new Canon 5D Mark II for a weekend and this is the “movie”: he made. It is truly remarkable how this move to a digital SLR taking HD movies is going to change the world. Now you can take 21MP stills or make the most incredible movies you can imagine in available light.

You have to see this it at Canon Digital Learning Center – Sample Video: EOS 5D Mark II

This video was shot with a pre-production Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR. The files used to create this video were not manipulated in any way, only re-compressed for ¼ resolution display on our website.

Due to pretty incredible demand and a fair amount of (healthy) skepticism as to whether or not the footage in the “Reverie” piece is “truly” raw out of the camera, we will be releasing a series of raw clips – the exact same clips that were used in the “Reverie” short film – this coming Friday. You can also see the behind the scenes comparison at which shows the 5D Mark II vs. the top of the line Canon XL1 camera.
