SmallHD sent us this video of tests they did with the SmallHD AC7 that is pretty impressive and I’m glad they did it with their own equipment, not sure i’d put anything of mine thru this kind of test on purpose! An even mix of real-world and wildly-absurd abuse tests were performed—from a shoulder-height drop [...]

Jonathan Yi (creator of the famous “Revealing new Canon EOS C300 ‘test’ video from Jon Yi“) has done it again (and given planet5D worldwide first showing) – this time creating a battle of the Canon prime lenses – both L versions and Cinema versions. Give it a watch! I’m sure you’ll enjoy the distraction and [...]

On the “Canon5DMarkSeries” yahoo group, a member (Don Marcotte) has been very interested in finding out about the high ISO performance of the Canon EOS 6D – so he managed to visit his local store and they let him do some “dark” tests – by placing the body cap or lens cap on the camera [...]

Dave Dugdale sent this in a couple of weeks ago (and yes, I’m way behind)… you may be very interested in seeing Dave’s comparison… does the Canon Rebel T2i/550D match up to the Canon EOS 5D Mark III? What do you think? Canon 5D Mark III vs T2i/550D Comparison From Dave’s post Before I start [...]

A few weeks ago, Kevin Good released a somewhat irreverent comparison of the Nikon D800 and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (which included the destruction of a Canon) and now he and his team have released part 2. Remember, your evaluation and Kevin’s might be different as your needs might be different than his, [...]

There aren’t many Canon EOS 5D Mark III shorts out yet, and most of what you’ve seen so far are ‘test’ videos – well, “Copelandia” is another (at least that’s what the guys who made it called it), but yet it is a complete story – and it was completed in only 8 days! Copelandia [...]

I suspect we’ll be getting many of these in the next few weeks and I’ll try not to post all of them here, but will be posting them on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III page so keep your eye there. This one is from Martin Zilka who’s from Slovakia and he’s put together a [...]

For those of you checking out the Canon EOS 60D, I’m sure you’re interested in the performance of the video in low ISO settings as well as how things look in the different white balance settings. We’ve found a couple of videos to help. First up is a test of many of the features including [...]

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 [...]
