My 135i Video (shot with 5D mkII)

I posted this at 1addicts, but I thought some of you in the Universal forums might want to check it out as well. This is my first steps into video and shot with my 5D mkII. I don't think it turned out well, but not horribly bad either...especially considering I had to edit with iMovie. I'm still trying to figure out how to get these h264 movies to play back smoothly in Final Cut.

Beautiful. The future of "home" video. Wish I could afford a 5D2!

Looks great.

Just one question, can you play video from the camera though a HDMI cable on a 1080p TV?

Yes, but the port is a mini??-hdmi. It says HDMI and is shaped like an HDMI port, but it's a bit smaller.

radiant,

lock the aperture wide open by doing the following:
in movie/live-view mode, cover the lens with your hand, controlling the light that fills the frame, when the aperture opens up to its max (because of the lack of light), hit the * exposure lock button. untwist the lens by just a hair, live-view will turn off, but your aperture will remain where it was. turn live view back on and lock your exposure again to control the shutter and ISO. if when you turn live view back on, the display is twitching/jumping - your lens is unscrewed too much. it should be just a hair - up to a couple millimeters.

do the same thing with your hand covering the lens until you get the shutter/ISO combo you like and then lock it down - afterward, you can use the dial to adjust compensation. if you want a higher shutter speed and lower ISO - aim the frame at a bright light source.

cheers.

oh, a tip: if it's too bright outside for a wide-open aperture, get yourself an ND filter.

Thanks. I actually was told about an even better way where you don't have to trick the camera:

1)With the camera NOT in live view - Select Manual on the mode dial
2)Choose the aperture you want to use.
3) Choose the shutter speed > 1/40th
3)Set the ISO to Auto.
4)Go to menu - choose Live View/Movie func. set
5)Choose LV func. setting
6)Choose Stills+Movie
7)Choose Exposure simulation
8)Press the Live View button
9)Focus
10)Press record

Tried a few tests and it definitely works.

nice!
have you locked the exposure before recording and adjusted the exp. dial on the back? what does it change? just the ISO? just the shutter speed or both?

Video and pics top quality! Should have done some interior filming of the rev counter and shifts to mix it up a bit!
