Vincent Laforet gets to shock the world again releasing the world’s first Canon EOS-1D MKIV movie – just as the camera is announced by Canon too! And Vincent says that not only does this camera take us a bunch of steps up from the original (and from the 5D2), it is a “paradigm shift” because of the low light capabilities of the Canon EOS-1D MKIV… “I think it’s safe to say that every single filmmaker and photographer has always dreamed of cameras that can see what our naked eyes can see. This time these cameras can actually see more. Sure – they may not have the dynamic ranges of our eyes just yet – but they see more than my naked eyes can see in low light.” Please read Vincent’s post for more amazing details about this video!

“Here is the main point that I hope you take into account: the short film you are about to watch was shot in pretty much the very worst light that I could possibly find in an evening urban landscape. I did not chose “pretty lighting” in a mall or under neon signs. That would have been cheating in my book.” (I insist-go read the whole post!)

Obviously, if you have the bandwidth, you’ll want to download this in full size from smugmug! (it is available in full 1080 and they’re my favorite video hosting site)

Oh and by the way canon will finally release a firmware update for the 5dmk2 to finally shoot 24/25fps to exiting times are coming!
