A short demonstration of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II's HD movie mode, handheld using the EF 24-105mm f4.0L lens. This is part of my full EOS 5D Mark II review at Cameralabs - you can find it here: cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_EOS_5D_Mark_II/
You've all seen great-looking professional footage with the 5D Mark II, but what happens if you try and use it like a normal camcorder? This clip was entirely handheld and includes panning with IS enabled and adjustment of the lens focal length both at the beginning and end of the clip.
The settings were fully automatic without any exposure lock or compensation. The camera selected an aperture of f22 here. The audio was captured using the built-in microphone. If you download the original MOV file, you'll notice a small hair in the upper left corner - this has become noticeable due to the very small aperture selected by the camera when recording movies under bright conditions.
For full details on the movie mode, along with many results and sample images comparing the 5D Mark II against the original 5D and Sony's A900, check out my full review of the camera at cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_EOS_5D_Mark_II/
