Thanks to Cali Lewis for finding this, and then Troy Hocking for pointing it out to me, we’ve got one of the most amazing videos ever made. The reason? Simple. It was shot with a camera, not a camcorder!
That’s right, this video was shot entirely with the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera (review), which incorporates full motion 1080P video capability. I am absolutely speechless, and about ready to sell my Canon XH-A1 for one of these puppies.
Only problem is that I don’t believe there is any sound recording, so you’d need to handle that separately and then splice sound and video together in post production. Also, the camera is only capable of clips up to 12 minutes in length. Still, based on the incredible imagery it just may be worth it.
Here is Reverie, filmed by Vincent Laforet:
Here is a higher quality version if that didn’t do it for you.
As a bonus, here is the “Making Of” video that shows a lot of how it was shot and assembled:
