Gone are the days where we paste our pictures into big bulky photo albums. But what would happen if we didn't just store our pictures, but our entire memories in the cloud? One day, they could be completely wiped out, which is just what filmmaker Francois Ferracci explores in the short Lost Memories .
Yup, the Canon 5D Mark III is serious business. That sweet bit of kit is a pro-grade camera and a total lust item. But there's another reason to love it: It just made its elder sibling, the 5D Mark II, the best deal in cameras.
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is finally real and so now it's time for bargains on its predecessor—sort of. Canon will continue to produce the legendary, full-frame, HD shooting 5D Mark II and the company is hinting at price break next week.
When you compare the Canon 5D Mark III to other DSLRs, its specs fall somewhere between the 1D X and the previous model, the 5D Mark II. But how does it compare to competition like the Nikon D800?
I wonder how this happened. Did a bunch of Chinese businessmen desecrate this Canon 5D Mark II for kicks or were they jonesing for some cigs and had nothing but this used camera lying around?
How do you make paint move with the grace and litheness of a classically trained dancer? With a Canon 5D Mark II, and a whole lot of patience. See for yourself what 5,000 frames per second gets you:
This is how the Canon 5D Mark II looks inside after eating your cereal with chocolate milk and LSD. At least that's what I think Mads Peitersen does to create his stupendously freaky gadget anatomy illustrations. He sent us another:
Look at this pleasant tableau: two square-jawed gentlemen and one of their attractive lady friends enjoying a brand new Sony point-and-shoot. And so beautifully photographed! (By a Canon 5D Mark II.)
Yesterday, we looked at some gorgeous underwater photography taken with the Canon 5D Mark II. Today, we have an article explaining a bit of the logistics behind such shooting, from the waterproof gear to the reasons you'll curse into bubbles.
If the Canon EOS 5D Mark II was good enough to film the entire season finale of House on, there it should be more than adequate to use as a Skype webcam. But how?
Wow, the House (great show, btw) season finale was shot entirely on a Canon 5D Mark II. You think that the HD video quality of dSLRs is challenging pro video and film gear yet?
Being a lomo user, photographer Hunter Richards's Canon 5D Mark II hack has totally made my Friday. Using a Russian lomo lens from the '80s with an adapter, he managed to create a beautifully-shot lomo film worthy of your attention.
Everybody complaining in the 1D Mark IV comment thread that there won't be any more video firmware updates for the 5D Mark II is kinda wrong: Canon is enabling the 24fps and 25fps 1080p video recording that's found on the 7D and 1D Mark IV, bringing it about up to par. Update's due sometime next year, though no…
I'm amazed by the cinematic qualities of this high definition footage from Frontline's documentary Obama's War. The color, the depth, the texture, it all screams film to me. Except it's just a Canon 5D Mark II rigged by Danfung Dennis.
Microsoft is set to bombard us all with Windows 7 ads around the October 22nd launch—and director Marty Martin's concept spots are setting the bar high.
In the words of our own Brian Lam, "Put the video in HD and get ready to fucking vomit from the beauty." I'd recommend ditching your normal YouTube ADD and letting nature unfold its narrative at an organic pace.
