First, there’s this image:
At first, it might seem like a normal image, but when you realize that this was taken about 10pm at night, at a shutter speed of 1/400s, and an aperture of f11, and at 400 ISO, you have to agree with me that this is far from normal. After the release of the new “5D Mark II” it will be normal.
People commented on the way I laughed when I demonstrated the 10 FPS framerate of the 1D Mark III last year, just wait until you hear me laugh this time!
The 24MP sensor in the “5D Mark II” is going to enable extremely low light photography. Combined with our fast lenses, the possibilities are mindblowing. Prepare to take pictures in your living room during the day at 1/4000s, f2.8, ISO 100. We’re so confident about the low light capabilities, we haven’t even included a built in flash on this camera. In fact, the use of flash is going to be only for creative purposes from now on.
I’m not yet allowed to reveal the name of this camera, but I can show you this image I got from our marketing department. It’s not very clear, I know, the marketing people insisted on taking this picture with a 1D Mark III in AI Servo mode.
All the details are going to be revealed beginning next week. Exciting times for everyone!
