Stunning new Digital Video Cameras

One of my hobbies is photography. I have a Canon 5D Mk II. It makes great pictures and also awesome videos. Check out http://planet5d.com for examples.

Now the world of video is beginning to respond to the arrival of DSLR cameras that can do great video. There are three recent entrants into the space. They all significantly reduce the price point of awesome video. In order of release they are:

1. The Panasonic AG-AF100
2. The Sony PMW-F3
3. The Sony NEX FS-100

Here are samples of each:

Canon 5D Mk II and Nikon D3X and Hitler – Hilarious

I just took delivery of a new Canon 5D Mark II. Its a 21 megapixel hottie with full 1080p video. Here’s an example video of my 2 year old - http://gallery.me.com/kteare#100150.

Then, Nikon announced a 24.5 Megapixel D3X for $8000 (the Canon is $2699.00). It doesn’t do video! And by many measures it is a worse camera.

Here’s what Hitler thinks – warning, it is VERY funny.
