J. Behiri Shots A Pre-Production Canon EOS 7D Mark II (video)

cinema5d‘s Johnnie Behiri felt the pulse of Canon’s new EOS 7D Mark II, especially for the video features. A pre-production model was used.

All in all the Canon 7D mark II offers surprisingly nice looking and clean video with lovely and accurate colors and no aliasing or moiré.

But also:

One or two years ago this camera would probably have sold like hot cakes. 5D mark III video in a much more affordable APS-C body and slow motion in full HD. But now that 4K is here for many the video might be too soft.

Canon still not implementing 4k video is a bad thing, and not very smart imo. The 5D Mark IV is rumored to have 4k. Let’s hope Canon starts to be less conservative.
