Charlie Everywhere (now Phantogram), one of my favorite local band, playing at Circus Cafe in Saratoga Springs NY.
This is a test video with a Canon 5D Mark II (second test here: vimeo.com/2641870). The flickering is actually produced by a pretty intense strobe light I was standing next to, nothing to blame the 5D for (yet). The place was packed, I had to handheld. It was also extremely dark, except for short strobe bursts, which made it pretty difficult to shoot in both cases.
I brought my fastest lens, a 50mm f/1.4, stuck to a very small aperture at ISO 5000 (down to 3200?), and I'm still amazed by the amount of light the camera managed to capture.
It's going to be fun and challenging shooting videos with this DSLR. Notice the details on Josh's beard as he goes in and out the focus plane at 0:55, and compare to the video I captured with my Powershot SD870IS a few months earlier:
The embedded mic saturated pretty quickly. Focusing needs careful planning. I used auto-focus mode for most of the video, then fiddled with manual-focus at the end.
