My new camera is a Canon!

Posted on February 19, 2009

Look out Nikon!!


Today the UPS man delivered my new Canon 5D Mark 2. Now this camera is exciting because aside from its huge 21 mega pixel file size it’s also able to shoot High Definition Video. In the past many pro photographers and videographers have wondered; When will still photographers also be shooting video? Well now with the 5D Mark 2 a still photographer can shoot stills one second and then switch to video and back to stills in a moments notice. I’ve only had this new toy for a few hours so I have not been able to play with it for very long. However, I did shoot some video with it and I must say the quality of the high def video is excellent. YES, I’m aware that Nikon has a new D90 that also shoots video as well. However, the Nikon does not have a full frame image sensor so the quality is not as good as the Canon.
Aside from the video aspect the 5D Mark 2 is an awesome still camera. It’s 21 magapixels which is more megapixels than the Nikon D3 and it is also very good in low light situations. I still love the image quality of the Nikon D3 but why would Nikon make a $5000.00+ camera with no auto sensor cleaner.. I’m so tired of cleaning dust off the image sensor of my Nikon D3. The Canon 5D Mark 2 does have an auto sensor cleaner, which is another reason I decided to go with the Canon.
Tomorrow 2-19-09 I have a very nice wedding at Turnberry Isle Resort and club and my New Canon 5D Mark 2 is already in my gear case. Even though I only plan of shooting a few frames with my new camera I can’t wait to test it out.
