my latest purchase, the Canon 5d Mark II. While I love the camera and the way it captures still images, I'd been reading a lot about it's video functions and the way it captured full HD video that was sending the film world into a tizzy. Last night I watched the season finale of House MD off iTunes, and was AMAZED at the video quality of the episode, shot completely with the 5d. That's right, a full episode shot with a digital camera!! It caused David Pogue of the NY Times to tweet, "Ok, tonight's episode of "House" was shot with a STILL CAMERA! Ok, an expensive Canon pro model, but still...what's the world coming to?" Isn't it great what technology can do?!
Here are the first 3 minutes of the episode for you to gauge the quality for yourself:
