"The 5D set, as I mentioned, is very old, and has been used to shoot self funded work (short films, a documentary etc). the 5D Mark 1 does shoot video. Its not the best solution for shooting video, but coming from a pro cinematographer, neither is any DSLR or Mirrorless. The best solutions for video are cameras built for video only."


I guess you must be referring to mk II rather than the mk I, as the 5D mk II was the first Canon DSLR that could shoot video. I believe Nikon D90 was the first DSLR ever with video capability.

The 5D mk II was indeed used a lot for professional video work like music videos and such. Also TV shows and some independent movies.
