This is my first attempt using the new Canon 5D in video mode. The camera has amazing high def picture quality and great color capture. Most of the footage in this clip is straight from the camera apart from some stylizing in FCP.

Low light capabilities are not as amazing as first reported especially when shooting video, but it kicks my XHA1's proverbial @#^*.

The biggest drawback is not being in full control of the aperture when shooting video. All that lovely depth of field disappears when you hit that record button. Cant understand why Canon haven't picked up on this. Maybe its a technical issue that cant be changed.

We are toying with trialing a fully manual Carl Zeiss lens with it. Stay tuned. christianfletcher.wordpress.com christianfletcher.com.au
