Question 5D Mark II video mode?

Wondering if anybody here knows how soon after recording your 4gig 12 min HD video on the new 5D Mark II before you can start recording another 12 min HD video?, I guess what I am asking is, is there a delay for it to rite to the card or a cool down time or can you start recording for another 12 mins straight after the first clip (presuming you have a big card and don't need to change it between clips) - I cant seam to find this information and would be interested if anyone can shed some light on this, If it is possible to start another clip straight away these clips could be combined to make a long video if need be and the 12 min limit would not be an issue?

Re: 5D Mark II video mode?

Can't answer your question directly, but when I was heavily into video, I found that the average length of a clip was around 5 to 8 seconds. The main exceptions being long pans or zooms which would not be done very frequently.

I could not imagine wanting to record 12 minutes of video in one take.

Re: 5D Mark II video mode?

Cheers Graham - that is something I had thought of as well but as I have no video experience at all (never even used one-or a point and shoot with video mode!) I was not shore how it all worked, it still confuses me...so if you shot 5 or 10 mins of video or 2 or 3 mins even stopping in between dose it start off on the next clip with a new 12 mins recording up its sleave every time or would it pick up where it left off and do the remainder of the 12 mins before it needs a spell? - do you think these clips would be easy to combine into one long clip with software?....oh my head hurts-think I am confusing myself now

Re: 5D Mark II video mode?

The 12 minutes I suspect is the capacity of the card, so just like your stills, as you take video, it will gradually use up the remaining space. When you have recorded 11 minutes of video - even if it is in 10 second clips there will only be enough space left for 1 minute.

Basically each clip will be a separate file. With solid state/HDD they can be dragged and dropped just like any other file - although it will probably take longer due to the file sizes. Tape based systems have to be transferred in real time. These can then be burnt to disc as they are, but better results can be obtained by editing them first.

Editing software will allow each clip to be trimmed/modified/discarded. Usually the clips are imported into a clip bin and then put onto a timeline after editing. The order can be changed and clips can be duplicated if you want. You can add transitions, a soundtrack and/or sound effects and the more advanced editors will allow other stuff too.

I got fed up with the editing when I came back from holiday with around 5000 clips to edit to make the completed film (still in progress ). Also video takes more planning than stills.

Re: 5D Mark II video mode?

Interesting.....thanks Graham, still keen to find out if and what the delay is after your 12mins or card is full before you can continue recording with another 12 mins, I have not been able to watch the videos posted on the net from the 5D mark II as my bandwidth at the moment will not allow it on my mobile broadband connection-any others able to shed some light on this topic?

I think that will depend on how fast you can change the card

My Son has got a video camera that records onto SD cards and you can use it just as you would a miniDV recorder. There is no waiting for the camera to get ready for the next shot, just point and shoot until the card is full.
