    There's a video at the link:

    I have a feeling this is going to be pretty damn impressive, especially for those interested in the 5d2 for video

    Need to reload the firmware if the camera goes to sleep?

    Seems like it's really in its infancy, cool though.

    autofocus for video is not something I would necessarily want. I can only imagine the difficulties of trying to get the camera to focus on a specific spot during a take. No thanks. I'll pull my own focus when shooting video.

    i might run it on my 5dmk2 but i think it would void the warranty

    Thats what i dont understand with all this video on your DLSR craze.

    Its not a video camera. It should do its job and thats it. If someone wants a video camera, get a video camera. These Pro-sumer level cameras are falling back towards the consumer side and less to the pro side with shit like this imo. :dunno:

    Exactly! That's why I still carry a bag phone, a little black book, a walkman, a GPS, a laptop, a memo pad....

    find an HD video camera for anywhere near that price with a whole slew of inexpensive interchangeable lenses, that takes as high of a quality of video as well as the 5d2 does.

    There's some really impressive stuff out there that people are doing with video on the 5d2.
