Sorry Mick, I just couldn't get your link to work.

The footage is nice and it will be interesting to see some video taken with the Canon 800mm lens. This lens is becoming very popular with bird photographers

Bob,

For people who collect short clips of wildlife, useing this camera could well be the way to go.

Totally awesome video.

Just a few more tweaks to the camera for still photography, and this will be on my next Christmas wish list.

Hopefully by then the price will come down too!

I really need to practice, with my old Opturas' manual controls, as it will do this, as well.

Started practicing with it over the summer months, with dragon flies, and had some good results.

So this video clip, has given me some inspiration, to practice some more.

Going to have a couple of snowstorms, passing through, overthe next couple of days, so, I will have to try my hand at practicing the focusing, with the Optura.

The little dials on the camera aren't the same as using interchangeable lenses, designed for this, but practicing this way, will get me ready, for when I take the plunge for a bigger and better video camera.

technique and knowing the subject matter, will make the visuals, as this 5D showed.

The video was pretty impressive. But it doesn't do sound - yet.

Hey, this video sensor is going to be running for a while, so, has anyone thought about how hot this is going to get, and how to cool it down?

No water cooling here!

The 5DII? Yes it has sound, but really needs a hot shoe microphone. Of course with a FF sensor it has no crop factor the one gets with a camcorder. One nice aspect is that the lens image stabilization works. On long lenses this is likely better than in camera IS.
12 minute recording limit isn't very long for wildlife. The camera does start and stop quickly, but there's no certainty the break can be put at the right moment.
Some thing like the future 2/3 red Scarlet seems ideal with Canon or Nikon lenses. Extra resolution for crop and shake removal, and a smaller sensor for reach.
I wonder if image stabilization in Canon lenses can be powered on non-Canon cameras?
