Comparing the new Canon 7D video to the 5d MKII's

Being the luckiest guy on earth whose job (SmugMug) is his passion (cool photos and videos), I couldn’t resist heading to SF the day I got my new 7D and test its video capabilities to the limit–;and comparing it with the 5D MKII.

Canons 7D video pushed to the limit, in 1080p
Canon's 7D video pushed to the limit, in 1080p

What I learned:

  • WOW!
  • Maybe it’s just ever-so-slightly lower quality than the 5D MKII.
  • The controls, including focusing, are easier than on the 5D MKII
  • I found my second camera.

Watch it here.  What do you think?

One thought on “Comparing the new Canon 7D video to the 5d MKII's”

  1. Here’s my idea — I really like the grand images of the Utah Slot Canyons – and given this really tall space and converging interior end wall at the stair landing — then — well… it goes to say — make the sides of the stair walls the canyon wall image and naturally the end wall stair landing becomes the “Slot” entrance or exit depending upon how it is perceived.
