“Before I start drooling over this new camera from Canon, I have to tell you that I am relatively new to the whole HDSLR field.
Over 14 months ago, I was doing detailed research on what HD camera to buy â€“ I needed a real workhorse for â€œrealâ€ commercial jobs, for many of which a DSLR camera is just not suitable. Also, at that time, only the 5Dmark2 with its 30 fps recording was available, and that was of course unacceptable (I live in Austria, and of course itâ€™s a PAL country like the rest of Europe).
To make a long story short: I decided a while ago that I needed an additional camera for a different purpose to supplement my EX3 setup. And I think I might have waited long enough with the purchase â€“ because I just found my future camera with the new Canon EOS 550D (or Rebel T2i, how itâ€™s called in the US).
Thanks to a great friend, I was able to get my hands on this new sensation early. After he tested the camera, I was also given the opportunity to have a close look at it and shoot some test footage.”
“I will later today post a short test film shot on the Canon 550D. In the meantime, enjoy this slow-motion clip that I made out of a 720p60 shot:”
