5D MKII Video Test

Just quickly cut together the first video I’ve shot using the 5D MKII. Really impressed with the quality and the ease of use. Coming from a photography background it’s great to be able to just jump in and make moving picture with the same tools used for the still ones. No trying to figure out button combinations or exploring a new medium to get the desired effect. The test was more so aimed at seeing how my poor little Macbook Pro would handle the files and to be fair, for a two year old laptop it put on a proud show. The original 1080P files were imported into Adobe Premier CS4, quickly cut together and outputted at 720P for use on Vimeo. There is some minor colour grading using the 5D MKII’s built in picture styles. Lense used was a Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS.

Now to pick up a mic and start working on some new plans …
