A&P Hands on the 5D Mk II...

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Dec 15, 2008.

  1. So I work at Best Buy and our department (DI) landed the new 5D Mk II... and had a chance to play around with it. Not too bad, I like it -- but still bummed that they decided to shoot 1080p videos and only keep the frames @ 3.9 a sec...

    The 6400 ISO is wickedly awesome... :coold:

    is it a quiet camera? is the viewfinder cluttered? looking at the AE-1 viewfinder is refreshing, theres no lines in it at all

    our local BB had it the other day, and didn't put the bracket on that keeps someone from stealing the L lens that's attached.

    i wish i was a clepto.

    The 30 fps video is software/live view related, while the 3.9 fps is mechanical.
