5D Mark II Review
 
Hey all,

I just wanted to share a review I put together of the new camera.
I've included some raw files and a link to a HD stream over at Vimeo.

Nice,
Thanks Phil !

Nice Phil. couple of questions.
Did you use the default preset?
What ISO were you at in the night shots?

Jon Fairhurst December 9th, 2008 01:28 PM

Nice review. And some of your beach shots are absolutely gorgeous. The low shot of the water beading and rolling back to the ocean is pure magic.

Phil Holland December 9th, 2008 01:41 PM

Thanks guys!

To answer your questions.

Don - I used the default camera preset and the footage was not touched other than the editing.

Jon - That ocean shot was shot at 14mm!

Wow. With the somewhat shallow depth of field and the lack of obvious distortions, I never would have guessed.

Try that with a 1/3" camera!

Oops. Maybe we're thinking of different shots. I'm talking about the one with the pier and the water coming. When it's just waves in frame that was done with the 200mm f/2.8L, which would make much more sense.

Jon Fairhurst December 9th, 2008 05:40 PM

I looked at the shot again. It's the very last one. 200mm makes a lot more sense.

Regarding the under-the-pier shot, that's a beaut as well, and definitely wide. The lack of distortion on the vertical piers is impressive. What lens did you use?

I was using a Sigma 14mm f/2.8 lens for that one.

Wow pretty cool footage Phil.
I wounder if "jello" would come into play filming racecars on an oval track camera is in constant motion tracking cars.

Dan Chung's BBall video demonstrates the rolling shutter pretty well.

To me, it was acceptable when panning in one direction. When the pan reverses, it's wiggly and unacceptable. Use your own judgment about the skew that you can accept.

Excellent review - thanks for all the work!
