So the first results of my new 5DmkII. I’m still really impressed by the camera. It feels solid, it sounds solid and, more important, it makes impressive pictures and movies.
I sat down in the garden for a while near a bird feeder to capture some birds. The conditions were really bad (low light, rain) and normally I wouldn’t consider going out now, but with a new camera… I put my camera on 800 iso and later even on 1600 iso. Back home I saw some noise, but the levels were definitely acceptable. Of course I missed the cropfactor, but back at the computer I had that many pixels (21M) that I could easily crop half of the picture and still have more as enough for any reasonable purpose.
Apart from taking some pictures I was also very eager to try the movie-function of the camera. This also works really nice (I think even better under these conditions). My first movie impression can be seen here (on youtube).
