SmallHD makes monitors for HDSLRs and they’ve just released a great article and video called “The TRUTH about Canon DSLR Output Signals” which you must read if you ever wanted to know about how the current Canon HDSLRs put out HDMI to a monitor. planet5D has been given early access to this very informative information [...]

This is just a quick fun post… saw this video this morning and it is getting a ton of hits – it looks like fun and it is well edited – and lastly, some of it was shot on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, a couple of Canon Rebel T2i/550Ds, an ex1 along with [...]

The other day, Philip Bloom tweeted the video below which was shot by Mike Collins (whom I met at the Canon EXPO) showing the difference between the full frame Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) and the 1.6 crop factor Canon EOS 7D (reviews) using the same lenses. Tho the title of the video talks [...]

Now that the Canon EOS 60D has been announced, everyone will want to know where it fits in the Canon HDSLR lineup as well as what this new camera brings to the party. The 60D replaces the 50D in the Canon line, but fits between the Canon Rebel T2i/550D (reviews) and the Canon EOS 7D [...]

As was rumored, Nikon has announced the Nikon D3100 today. It isn’t a pro level camera, but the key (at least for me) is that they’ve finally entered the full 1080 video world and they’ve set a new standard of full autofocus in video mode (tho we’ve got to see how well it works as [...]

Lasers used in a light show have damaged a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) CMOS sensor and I sure didn’t know it was possible, but I thought I’d get a warning out since it appears to have damaged this guy’s sensor.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve gotten several submissions shot with the Canon Rebel T2i/550D (reviews) that have just been wonderful. So, I thought I’d show them to you as well (tho they have also been added to planet5D Cinema). The first is a music video that just really got me (maybe it is [...]

Gizmodo today released a report on the Canon Rebel T2i/550D and were bold in saying “This Should Be Your First DSLR” right at the top – they really love this camera! I urge you to read the whole story, but this is the tease from the top of their review: Canon’s Rebel T2i is an [...]

Petapixel found this cool little video shot on the Canon Rebel T2i/550D from a helicam operated by Jeff Scholl who operates GravityShots.com – and they’ve got some amazing videos on their site (not all of them are T2i stuff) – especially liked their demo reel. You can watch the video on Petapixel’s site as well [...]

Patrick (an 18 year old student from Germany) popped into the chat tool on the blog (see the button for it in the lower right of your blog window) this morning and taught me some stuff about skateboarding and the Canon Rebel T2i/550D – as well as giving me a lesson on the Sony VX1000. [...]

Yesterday, while watching Vincent Laforet’s creativeLIVE training, someone in the chat room pointed to this demo of what picture styles can do for your Canon EOS 7D – please realize that this also goes for your Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EOS-1D MKIV and Canon Rebel T2i/550D. The author has a bit of [...]

We had a little discussion with James Barber the creator of this beautiful little Canon Rebel T2i/550D movie and asked him to give us a little bit of feedback on how he was liking the T2i. We got more than we thought we’d get, but it is all great information. So here’s the movie (which [...]
