Canon 550D Full HD Video.

Taking advantage of YouTube now showing full 1080p HD Video here is an example shot with the Canon 550D.


To get the full advantage, click on the YouTube link and wait for it to load, as its a huge (471MB) file and it will take time. There may be some "stuttering" coming off the server but it should give a decent impression of what this camera is capable of.

Lenses used were:- EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 Zoom, EF 28mm f1.8 USM, EF 50mm f1.8 II, EF 85mm f1.8 USM and EF 55-200mm f4-5.6 Zoom. Settings were full manual exposure & focusing. Shot at 24p. Edited on an iMac with iMovie.

Very impressive quality. At these ISO settings indistinguishable from the 5D MK II. Because of the later design also easier to operate than the 5D Mk II. Using full manual its simple to juggle the ISO speed, shutter speed and aperture.
Much of the video is shot at f1.8.
