(Note: tests run quick so pause video. Longer video samples will be available for downloaded.)
Thanks to BorrowLenses.com (photography and video equipment rentals), we were able to have early access to two Canon 5D Mark III cameras + Zeiss CP.2 Prime lenses. We shot this video a few days ago and first decided to throw it into a real production environment at the Myx Television studios where most of their television shows are shot completely on Canon DSLRs. It was interesting to see the crew trying to learn the new menus and new positions of buttons they were once familiar with. Overall, the 5D Mark III performed without any issues. You could find more of their videos shot mostly on Canon DSLRs at http://Myx.TV.com
Our next tests were the Canon 5D Mark III in studio along side a Canon 5D Mark II. We decided to use the 24-105mm F/4L on both cameras since it would be closer to what most people would have access to. These tests run quickly through the video, so please pause the video to see the examples.
[Update] Longer video clips available for you to download at the BorrowLenses.com blog Canon 5D Mark II vs Canon 5D Mark III Video Clips.
We wished we had more time with the equipment to run more proper tests, but thanks again to BorrowLenses.com for allowing us early access to one of the most talked about cameras. We will have more in depth about the new features of the 5D Mark III in another review.
