Canon 5D Mark II Review at Pro Photo Home

Pro Photo Home has published a review of the Canon 5D Mark II‘s video capabilities with some very harsh words about the feature (like a “disaster”).

The point here is to review the video mode for the regular purchaser of the cam. They will most likely be disappointed in the video mode. I didn’t bother to mention how “fiddly” the whole operation is compared to a proper pro camcorder with zoom controls, a shoulder mount, etc., etc.

For the latest news and reviews on the 5D Mark II, be sure to stay tuned to Photography Bay’s Canon 5D Mark II Reviews and Resources.

    Wow, what a horrible review. He uses AF for professional film shooting? I’ve never seen that happen myself. MF is the only thing that works for me. Sure, if you want 12-minute-long takes of the camera constantly working to keep up with the action, this isn’t the camera for you. Not sure what would be. Maybe a point-and-shoot with inf. focus and IS or something.
