Test drove the new Canon 5D Mark II I received almost immediately upon Canon's first shipment thanks to Steve at West Photo here in Minneapolis. Put together a quick test shoot with a local model named Ola and took my first stab at mixing video + stills. For how little prep time we put into this, I am quite pleased at what I came away with. The camera is mixing up the playing field at a time when things are more ripe than ever for change. My good friend Damian Petrou of Brave New Media spent an evening with me putting his Final Cut skills to work. I look forward to seeing where this goes as I am feeling pretty psyched.
