I work for a major OEM semiconductor and unless we show customers how to use are standard parts we can forget a good deal of our sales.

Word is getting around that 5D2 HD video is about impossible to deal with without expensive professional resources and training. Lesser customers that want to buy an 5D2 for amateur video are being turned off and headed to solutions that provide compressed outputs they can easily use. Guess Canon doesnt need the business..

iMovie is a free application that comes on every Mac. It handles 5DII video very well. If there's not a similar solution for the PC platform that's unfortunate.

People who don't want to invest the time in learning to shoot decent quality video would definitely be far better off with a point and shoot or camcorder. They will still need some training as even the most simple editing software won't make the edits or visual taste decisions automatically.

For pro shooters, the 5DII video is handled like any other file-based video and works well with all the leading serious editing software. Canon is now releasing a free video software plug-in that fills many of the needs that have been requested by pro shooters, and new firmware that increases the frame-rate options for the 5DII is due any time...
