Both of the above videos were shot on Canon’s newest DSLR, the 1d Mark IV. The videos look incredible, but what is absolutely jaw-dropping about the first video, Nocturne by Vincent Laforet, is that it was shot at ISO 6400 for nearly the whole video–some of the scenes were shot at ISO 3200 but all scenes used natural light sources.
The quality coming from the new 1d Mark IV is stunning. Prior to the 5d Mark II and Nikon D90 I was not super thrilled about video on DSLR’s. The main reason was that I didn’t see its potential. Now that these video capabilities are so well refined, I’d love to get ahold of a new DSLR. Just one more thing to add to this years wish list.
