I’m sure many of our planet5D readers have been to see the movie “Act of Valor” that I’ve been talking about over the past couple of years. This movie (just in case you haven’t read my posts about it yet) was shot on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II (well about 75% of the final [...]

I’m not sure why anyone would do this, but here you go… Oli Kember posted this video where he appears to take a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, burns it and then takes a hammer to it. Stunt? Publicity? or was the camera a fake or not working? Oli isn’t telling. 5D Mark iii Announced [...]

One of the first things people start doing when a new camera like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is announced is compare it to other cameras in its class… so we knew you’d want that and we put together this table of detailed specs on these 3 cameras… the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, [...]

Cruising thru email the other day, I found this note sent in by Steve Daniels who shared his latest Canon EOS 5D Mark II film “Dirty Silverware” which really grabbed me – so of course I asked him to tell us more about the project (I had to twist his arm! HA) and he sent [...]

If you haven’t gathered, I consider “Act of Valor” an incredible achievement and very significant for the HDSLR movement – and so we’ll be covering it a bit in the next few days. I mentioned before that I’m flying out to LA to be with Shane and to see the movie and then watch a [...]

Mikael Eidenberg created something amazing over a year ago and I just found it yesterday (and I tweeted a small snippet to see if anyone would realize it was a render – nobody noticed that) so I just have to post this incredible 3D render of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. When I first [...]

I confess! I’m a sucker for photos of the Northern Lights – maybe it is because I’ve never been blessed to see this incredible event (at least that’s what I’ve seen it called) – so when I see a Canon EOS 5D Mark II timelapse put together I get a little giddy and have to [...]

Good friend of planet5D Mario (inCINErate films) created this hauntingly tough short – so be warned, for some people (parents) this can be hard to watch – but the key is how well we’re pulled into the movie. This story is told so well, I almost turned it off twice… so strong are the emotions [...]

Gravity is a popular subject today on planet5D – we just published “Gravity” on the planet5D Cinema – and suddenly found another “Gravity” HDSLR movie that has a very fun attitude about it – “GRAVITY // UN RÊVE DE DEMAIN” by Filip Piskorzynski. It is very popular too! It has over 445k views on Vimeo [...]
