CANON 5D MARK II HDSLR

Drool.

I've been a Nikon fan for some time now.  My first DSLR was the Nikon D40, and it has treated me really well, but today I discovered the Canon 5D Mark II HDSLR and I think I'm totally in love.  I've been doing a little research on film cameras lately because I want to film.  Yes, the film bug has bitten and I think it's a natural progression from photography.  I was looking into getting a Nikon D3000 then I decided for the D5000, but after discovering the movie mode only filmed in 720p, I decided I should keep my Nikon D40 and go with a nice film camera.  Then with a little more research I discovered the Canon 5D and my world was changed forever.  Just watch the Making of The Last Three Minutes which was filmed using a Canon 5D.  I'm sold.  The director of the movie makes some great points, like the first person capabilities, how light weight the camera is, and how you can get shots with the Canon 5D you can't get with bulky cameras.  Man, I'm in heaven.  It's a pretty pricy camera, but the capabilities and the fact that it can not only take amazing 21.1MP, full-frame 35mm-format photos, but also produce HD quality movies with full sound has me thinking this could be a very good investment for my future.

Anyway, I'm done nerding out, but I had to share this amazing find.  I'm definitely going to be purchasing one in the future and I cannot wait!


Oh.  My.  God.
