Canon 5D Mark II Does the Bellagio Fountains

I couldn’t resist doing a video with the 5D Mark II and EF 17-40mm f/4 L of the Bellagio fountains while in Vegas for PMA. Unfortunately, the embedded version is nowhere near as crisp as the original file. You can see a higher quality version on the actual YouTube page here (just click the HQ icon).

I would love to share the original file; however, it is 1.23 GB, which is larger than the online video sharing that I know of will allow. The version that I uploaded to YouTube was compressed to 883MB.

Does anyone know of a free solution to get the original video file online? I just don’t have enough bandwidth to share it on my server.

UPDATE: Here’s the original 1.23GB file as hosted on DropBox. Right click and “Save As…”

Pre-PMA 2009

So, I made it to Vegas unscathed thus far. While I’m going to take in a bit of sight seeing and snap some shots of the sights, I’ll have some pre-PMA 2009 news over the next couple of days as well.

Look for news to pick up on Monday though.  I’ll be dropping lots of news on products and exhibitors Monday and Tuesday evening.

If you’re in Vegas for PMA, or otherwise, and want to meet up to talk photography, an impromptu photowalk or just to say hey, drop me a line through the contact form.  As of right now, tonight and Sunday are pretty open.

Stay tuned!
