We've got so many videos we've collected that were filmed with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, we thought it time to start highlighting the top ones we've found.
Today, we're going to highlight music videos… the 5D mk ii seems very good to use for music videos – they're certainly coming out of the woods
In no particular order:
Director: David Wagner
Dop, Editing: Sebastian WÃ¶ber
Assistant Camera: Ralf Woltron
Gaffer: Matthias Ganster
Discussion about the video at:
This is from Devin Pense who shot the Rascal Flatts video we highlighted earlier
This was a fairly low budget music video. I was asked to shoot a performance and use current broll that the band shot to tell the story. So the broll is u-g-l-y dv footage.
All of the performance was shot using a Canon 5D with the exception of the overcrank (slo-mo) shots which we shot with a RED camera. ANd as you'll see we lit for 5D and the Red didn't keep up.
We recently highlighted this video as a timelapse, but it was specifically done as a music video as well
a very unique music video that I really enjoyed – even tho it is in a language I donâ€™t understand (I always wished Iâ€™d taken the time to learn a different language – I really admire those who know more than one!)â€¦ very well done!
After seeing “The Assasination of Jesse James” Zurich-based rapper Big Zis was riding back home from the cinema on the tram, when suddenly the melody for this track came into her mind. She hummed it into her mobile phone and later on showed it to her producer Marton Di Katz, who created the music you are hearing.
For me and cameraman Tobias Dengler “Zessi” was the first time that we could not only find our way working in the western genre, but also try out the Canon EOS 5D MK II. Being obsessed with the Jesse James movie as well, we had a fun time using Roger Deakins' landmark images as an inspiration, especially since we had the chance to work with a shift and tilt lens along with the Canon camera. The piece was shot in march 2009 on an alp in Val Colla, Ticino, Switzerland.
Thanks for watching….
French and exquisitely done
Of course, we can't leave out Rob Sheridan and Nine Inch Nails! They've turned much of the music video world upside down for a while and they released some videos of their Australian tour taken live on stage with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II… here's one:

Ok, this isn't the ‘best' 5D mk ii video on the block, but I like the song and I like the fact that this is a 16 year old trying to break into the biz. Video shot by her brother to (New York freelance photographer, Robert Caplin). To see behind the scenes of this shoot, check out this video
Special bonus… not strictly a ‘music video' as far as I can tell… but impressive none the less
Studying the motion of the waves i created a series of “paintings” that make up this video.
Scenery shot in beautiful full HD with the canon 5dmk2 in New Zealand, jan.2009. enjoy!
Music: “Waves” by Nouvelle Vague. Video, Andrei Nica, www.sendal.ro
Ok, I guess that's more than 10 – and I could probably find a few more in the pile of amazing videos that are being shot on the 5D2, but we'll stop here for now. Hope you enjoy them!
