Video - Canon 5dMKII or 5DMKiii?
Oct 15, 2012


I'm getting more and more requests these days for video, and though most of my stuff is product or location based photography I've been using iPads for video which has not gone down too bad for simple promotional stuff (with some editing of course).

However, I need to do some product demos in tough lighting environments (where I can't added light - well not much, because of the product surrounds) so I'll need to use a reasonable ISO and also need more flexibility in range.

I used to shot with an old 5D (and have a few lenses still) but wondered whether there was any real difference in 5Dmkii or mkiii for video. The majority of the vids I'll be shoting will be done using manual focusing and I'll probavly need to use an external viewfinder for focus peaking and enabling me to shoot at weird angles.

Your help would be really appreciated as the guys at my local 'professional' camera store have me confused!
