The 5D Mark II is an impressive cam. It has been used to film tv episodes etc. One complaint I’ve found on the web was that it lacks the customizable functions of a true video cam. One user said that in outdoor situations (very bright sunny days etc.) it reverts into an ‘auto’ state which overrides some settings you may have. I thought about the same thing, but after seeing some of the difficulties that users experienced trying to use a still camera for a camcorder, I changed my mind.
