It better be good. Us video camera users are gonna bring it!!

Okay i can't speak for everyone, but I will!

Plus i can't wait to see how creative 5D2 users get with that cameras unique features. I'm hoping to get blown away enough to go further into debt.

Jay... try being in MY shoes. Chris B and I shoot together in our little production group here in Sacramento. He of course recently acquired the Canon 5D2... and we have done some shoots together with it. We BOTH are going to enter this challenge individually. I declared that assuming he was going to use the 5D2 for his, *I* was going to use the Z1 for mine, (and secretly maybe try using his 35mm adapter - he doesn't know of this idea yet so keep it quiet)... yet, looking at the footage we are getting with the 5D2, I keep thinking on scenes where the DOF would be valuable, MAYBEEE I might ... well... you know. It's a "slippery slope". We also have a pretty good selection of Nikon glass for it as well....

It's like being outside a bakery and smelling the smells and then eating 3 day old flatbread.

Chris,

Is it safe to assume you ain't talking about Pita bread?

I know. That was b-a-a-a-a-a-d.

5d mark II

Jay when you see video shot with the 5d mark my words with all CAP you will go further in debt lol i did when I sen the footage that camera can take i was ready to hangup my XHA1.

If and when Canon makes it all manual controls in the video side i will say good bye to my XHA1.

go to www.vimeo.com and do a 5d mark 2 search or test drive search when i found a test drive video that what made me go out and get the 5d the next day. i got mine from pro photo supply in Portland Or USA ha ha no wait list there

Nick, did you get your 5D2 in time?

And which of our other 5D2 owners completed a film?
