5D mk ii problems?

by planetmitchLeave a Comment

Several reports coming in of problems with the 5D mk ii. Previously, we reported the Luminous Landscape Antarctica trip problems, well, here’s a more in depth followup on their site. “A Stretch” By Chris Sanderson – small quote: “Let's be clear at the outset – the video files from the Canon 5D Mkii are very good and very useable, as has been shown by many examples posted on the web. I don't think anyone needs confirmation at this stage that the Canon 5D MkII produces very good stills and good HD video. Rather, for me the question was whether this camera could be used successfully to cover both stills and video in the field. The answer is ‘maybe…'. Know the limitations of the camera and possibly discover your own – as I did.”

Also, DentonImages is reporting Vingetting Problem with Liveview and the followup More LiveView Vignetting

Is it me, or do we love to find problems and make them into big news? Maybe I’m just too optimistic to get all hot and bothered about these things?
