First Camera to record 1920 by 1080p video.

The long wait for the next Canon EOS 5D came to an end. Yesterday (Thursday, September 18, 2008) Canon announced the realese of Canon's EOS 5D Mark II digital single lens reflex Camera. Many other digital SLRs have sensors that are smaller than that of a 35mm film frame, though. In those cases, the camera has what's commonly referred to as a "crop factor" or "focal-length multiplier" (for example, a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi has a 1.6X multiplier), and a 24 to 105mm lens effectively becomes a 38-to-168mm lens, instead.

The smaller sensor means that the edges of the lens are cropped off, which gives the effect of zooming into the center of the lens. 5D Mark II is the third full frame digital SLR announced in this year. The other two are

Nikon D700 - 12.1 Megapixels - Cost about $3000 (Launched on this summer)

Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 - 24.6 Megapixels - Cost estimated to be $3000 ... it will be shipped this november.

And this model

Canon 5D Mark II has 21 Megapixels with an attractive price of $2699 for the body only and $ 3499 in a kit with the EF 24-105 mm f/4L IS USM zoom expected to be shipped on this november.

Canon's 5D Mark II transforms the landscape further by capturing 30 frames per second MPEG-4 video at 1920 by 1080p resolution. Canon says you can capture up to 12 minutes of high-def video with monoaural sound (approximately 4GB) or 29 minutes, 59 seconds of standard definition video. You can take a picture while recording a movie; the video stops while you snap a still, then it resumes recording. In addition to the built-in mono microphone, you can add an external stereo microphone. A Mini-HDMI port facilitates outputting video directly from the camera to an HDTV. The Live View mode for framing your shots on the LCD screen has a dedicated button. The camera provides three ways to focus: quick mode, which lowers the mirror temporarily using the 15-point phase detection autofocus mechanism; live mode, which provides contrast based one-point autofocus; and face detection-based focusing.

So what u guys waiting for??? Those who have interest in Photography ...go and order for one.... Price gonna be a big problem as it seems...right???
