Canon 5D Mark II Gets $400 Instant Rebate

Canon 5D Mark II Instant Rebate

Canon is serving up a $400 instant rebate on the Canon 5D Mark II, which is likely being pushed aside now that the Canon 6D has landed.  This puts the Canon 5D Mark II body at $1799 shipped and the 5D Mark II + 24-105mm f/4L kit lens at $2499 shipped.

This massive price drop makes the 5D Mark II the cheapest full frame camera on the market in spite of the low starting prices of the new Canon 6D and Nikon D600.

Amazing Timelapse: Paris in Motion (Part II) & BTS Video Shows How it Was Done

Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi is at it again with the second part to his solid timelapse work in Paris.  Paris in Motion (Part II) continues with the stunning scenery we showed you in Part I back in August.

He moved the tripod by hand for 3500 shots that made up this video.  And, in some cases, he handheld the camera and moved himself in as straight a line as possible to create the moving timelapse effect.

As you can see in the below video, this movement resulted in some very shaky timelapse footage.  However, it was easily saved by stabilizing the timelapse in Adobe After Effects for some stunning results.  The large files from the 5D Mark II make it easy to apply stabilizing filters like Adobe’s warp stabilizer thanks to plenty of look-around space provided by the 5K+ resolution.

For those curious, Mayeul used the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L and 17-40mm f/4L for the shots that built this timelapse.

Thanks for sending this in Mayeul.  You can check out more of Mayeul’s work here on Vimeo.
