It’s coming! Full Frame-24 MP-VideoMode DSLR- The Canon 5D Mark II

Well It appears Another Big gun has decided to give us a movie mode.  I’ve read rumors that it might have a full 1080p mode but who really knows.  The bigger question is how many purses will I have to snatch to get enough money for it. 1080p recording might heat the sensor up so I wonder how long the clips could be.  The five minutes that the Nikon D90 gives you is actually plenty long enough for film making but I wonder if the image would then degrade after a bit.  Like during the next five minute burst. This worry has been discussed in many of the photographic forums but no one has actually found it a problem.

I wonder though if the heat of the sensor can degrade the image and a cool sensor can improve it  wouldn’t it be a good Idea to cool your sensor all the time especially when doing video. I’ve always wondered why they don’t incorporate some kind of active cooling like they do when they use the sensors for astronomy.  This home made example seems a bit bulky but if its mount somewhere.  I guess you would also have to hack the camera to make it record over 5 minutes.

  1. Surely there will be something, and in this case we hope a new Nikon whatever the name D3x or D4. This is digital age that moves so fast which benefits each of us.
    I hope Nikon will bring the camera with at least 20mp which will fill the market for proffesionals and in which it’s a bit behind main rivals like Canon.
    I would like to have an 24mp Nikon camera as it’s predicted as the medium format digital of this capacity are expensive let alone the system include lenses etc.
    Anyway photography is an art of expenisive but for an artist/photographer there are ways to come around.
