In recent weeks, the NewsOK video staff has been testing the Canon 5D, Mark II, camera. Unlike a traditional photo camera, the 5D will shoot 1080p HD video with sound. When paired with the right lens, you can achieve a film-like depth of field that rivals the Hollywood film maker. Check out the Red One, Canon 5D and Panasonic GH1 in a side-by-side CrunchGear video.

With a price tag under three grand, I must say, “I’m totally blown away.”
