Rob Sheridan and Nine Inch Nails (NIN) have released some new videos taken with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II live on stage. These two videos include 2 songs from the Atlanta show with Saul Williams.

UPDATE (scroll down to see the new video added June 8 – below the others)

UPDATE 2 – OOPS! Rob says about this 4th video: “Unlike the others, that video wasn't filmed with the 5D Mark II. I needed to zoom smoothly, so I used the Canon HG20 consumer camcorder.” Another new video added – scroll to last video below

UPDATE 3 – Another new video added – scroll to last video below

They are done in a similar manner as the last videos with external audio taken from the sound board and mixed by the band's audio guy Blumpy.

Rob also stated on twitter: “It's hard to gauge the focus on the viewfinder amidst smoke machines, strobe lights, galloping rock stars, & lots of shit to trip over.” I'll bet! While some will say that the quality just isn't there, most of the fans and a lot of Canon EOS 5D Mark II admirers will just be thrilled with the videos. It gives you a real sense of what it must be like to be on stage – everything going on at once, you want to watch everything going on yet can't quite manage it – so the show becomes a bit of a blur.

The first song is “Survivalism”
