Freakin amazing... just what I thought would happen!
Mix it with some stills and you got one heck of a show!
...I commented before I saw the stills mixed in. So, can someone else go ahead buy one so I can use two like these folks?
I'll buy one but they are going to be sold out til Easters.Guess I'll get on a wait list.This thing is so amazing. I used Rod's for a wedding last week and the thing performed incredible. ISO 1600 for family portraits, yes 1600 with any noise. So pumped.
i'm pumped on the camera. i think the noise suppression as we've all read about, and as miah just mentioned is going to make a huge difference in the way people can shoot. I also can't wait to get my hands on one and play around with the video functions. i dont know how i feel about the "fusion" of the wedding photography and videography though. maybe its just because it's all new, but i dont quite get it, for a couple of reasons: 1. most practically, i dont know how someone could possibly juggle being the photographer and videographer at the same time. i have a hard enough time just trying to keep up with my camera on the wedding day, without trying to switch back and forth between shooting modes and mental approaches. these little markII wedding mini-movies look awesome, no doubt, but producing a marketing piece with models on what seem to be all day shoots, is a bit different than shooting a real wedding.2. and maybe this is because i first thought of #1.... but i dont think i would hire a vendor offering photography/videography at the same time to shoot my wedding. i mean, i dont know if i would hire a videographer period unless it was http://www.blissvideoproductions.com/ for their 16mm production, but i digress. none the less, i think there are talented people out there, as we've seen from laforet, that are clearly gifted in both of these art forms, but at least from what i've seen so far in the wedding industry, i'd leave my day in the hands of a photographer who said he was going to be focusing on capturing the day in photographs. end rant.that said, i still want to make videos with one.
quote Hugh: "most practically, i dont know how someone could possibly juggle being the photographer and videographer at the same time."guess we'll have to see the dvd to see how they actually propose doing both well. good point Hugh.
