Kevin Rose begins doing interviews with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II

by planetmitch2 Comments

This morning, Kevin Rose (of fame and tea fanatic) released a video interview of Joey Roth, the inventor of the Sorapot (a teapot) that he's filmed with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. We knew that Kevin had purchased a 5D mk ii based on his posts on twitter a week or two ago, but this is the first interview we've seen that he's released. In the vimeo comments he noted he used the 50mm f1.4 lens in case anyone cares. He also posted about the interview on his blog.

Kevin, if you're reading, we'd love to find out more about your usage of the 5D mk ii – please contact us?

  1. Lovely looking material and a decent enough interview/discussion too: in full-screen there’s seems to be a fair amount of ‘pulsating’ or a halo artifacting, most clearly visible on the wall behind Kevin, on the right side of the frame, but exteending all the way to the middle of the frame – mostly in the upper half. This could all well be due to encoding artifacts, but I’m curious if the original files showed any of this? I realize how ffrustrating and seemingly unpredictable encoding can be too, so I’m asking strictly to know if there was aliasing to start with in the files from the Canon to start with.

  2. That is definitely the encoding end on Vimeo. The video that the 5D pumps out natively is pretty spotless.
