The Tokyo video shows me that you need a tripod. That little shaking really starts getting to me after about 30 seconds. Does anyone know if you get that little shake when using a stabilized lens?

Also, shots need to be established and exposure compensation made and then the exposure locked. The evaluative metering is not always working so great. The exposure ramping during a shot screams "video."

I'm still unclear as to what manual control you have over this camera in video mode.

In my opinion the wedding video showed much more promise for the camera then this video. This does showcase the low light abilities again though.

OK guys, this thread has been a roller coaster ride; everywhere from this Mkii performing better than a $100K cam to it's in the same league as a cell phone. Has anyone not affiliated with Canon that we trust actually used this camera and formed a good opinion of its true HD video capabilities? It's hard to tell what it can do, other than rack focus, on these compressed HD clips. I currently use an XHA1 and it looks like this comes in at about the same price point with a single lens.

I'm very interested in one if it performs better than the A1 (or EX1????).

And at 25 pages, it's a little on the long side... I think it's pretty much done.

Good question -- for this and any other 5D Mk. II questions, I think the time has come to post those topics into new discussion threads that are clearly labeled as "Canon 5D Mk. II -- (insert specific subject here)." Thanks in advance -- and thanks to everyone who participated in this thread,
