Pro image quality becomes more affordable

Canon will soon be shipping the recently announced, much anticipated 5D Mark II. It matches the company's flagship 1DS Mark III for resolution, with 21.1 megapixels, and boasts some interesting new features. Perhaps most interesting to many, however, is the price. At $2699 verses $7999 for the 1Ds Mark II, it brings professional resolution and features to a slightly more mainstream level.


The real question for us, however, is what's next?

I was interested in this camera for the chance at shooting full frame images. However, the real revolution with this camera will be the ability to shoot 1080p HD video as well. Imagine shooting video of this quality with an L series lens like an 85mm f/1.2, as opposed to the built in lenses on most HD video recorders.
