5D2 video on photographer point of view

As photographer, I'm waiting launching of 5D2 without knowing the video function of it and never interested before. On video, I'm just using a kind of compact one like Canon HF10 just for fun and never serious on video before. One of my serious kind of photography is to keep record of an old traditional Thai Mural painting since it being deteriorate with the time.
Now with both performace, video and photo, with only one camera I could do now better presentation of this traditional mural painting and hope that it will help to preserve on it.

I just re-visit to this temple and now capture on both, video and photo, then doing this clip.
Because of have to reduced the size of file for web, the HD one is so clear and sharp especially view with LCD Tv....Thai Temple Mural painting @ Wat Khian

Truly a fascinating project. I think photography and video really work well together here. I'm amazed that the temples let in that much outside light which must really deterioriate the murals.

Very good job on both the pans and the zooms. This is a case where both are needed and are appropriate. For the small written descriptions of the scenes I feel it would be better to stop the action so the viewer can read the text, and then resume the pan - I was always distracted trying to both read and see the mural.

I'm thinking of doing a similar project at a Hawaiian historical site. It seems that the 5D2 is really the best tool for this job since it does both video and photo together in one small package. The site is a few hundred yards into the woods so the light weight will be nice. What focal length did you use? I'm wondering what is best to preserve the geometry of the site. Perhaps the 50mm lens is best to keep perspective even?

If you like, post the English text of your titles here and one of us can polish up the translation for your western audience.

Dear Marcus, the focal length I use is mostly 70 mm. and some of wide 24 mm. also sometime 200 mm. from EF24-70L and EF70-200 F4L IS.
