As I suspected Canon are moving back to a more photographic spec. camera, as this camera has less video features which in my opinion is a good thing.

Shooting Mode : Manual exposure
Tv (Shutter Speed): 1/125 sec
Av (Aperture Value): f/8.0
ISO Speed: ISO100
Lens: EF70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM
White Balance: Color temp.(5200K)
Picture Style: Fine Detail

ISO speed is based on recommended exposure index.


The quality of this picture is simply stunning and the detail at 100%, interesting to see how the medium format cameras respond to this 50 mega pixel upgrade.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
