From the vimeo page:
The camera is very easy and pleasant to use.
Picture quality is identical to the more expensive (but older) 7D.
The real news with this camera (beside the AF which I was not able to test) is the clean HDMI output, a first ever in any Canon VDSLR.
It is yet to be seen if in the final camera firmware it will be 100% usable and functional.

On a sidenote:
The new 40mm f2.8 STM (video autofocus) pancake lens is now available: LINK
This was all handheld with the $200 Canon 55-250mm IS lens and there was no color correction applied.
The beta firmware version had some limitations like I couldn’t adjust the white balance or had wrong exposure at times. This should be resolved in the final version.
The handling of the camera was nice, although I didn’t find the button layout perfect for video (having to reach with the wrong hand to the wrong side of the camera).
I didn’t test audio or autofocus with the dedicated STM lenses (see announcement: LINK).
There is a kit version with Canon’s new Video-AF lens the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM for $1199.
Europeans get the Canon 650D here
[UPDATE:] Noise Test
This is a comparison between the noise on Canon EOS 7D and a beta Canon EOS 650D.
All internal noise reduction was switched off, same picture profile.
Dave Dugdale from learningdslrvideo.com brings us a very nice Canon camera comparison once again. This time around he compares the 5D mark2 allstar hdslr camera to the 3 times more affordable Canon T2i (550D).
So can the 5D’s video mode justify it’s price over the T2i? Dave doesn’t think so.
What do you think?

Redrock Micro has announced a new electronic viewfinder for HDSLR cameras. This is the EVF we have been waiting for for some time. The RRM EVF was designed from the ground up with the HDSLR shooter in mind. It is quite heavy at eight ounces with a 15mm rod mount system that will work with all existing RRM rigs. The EVF LCD will have more resolution than the LCD on the back of the camera. There will also be options to have frame lines and audio monitor levels right in the EVF. The RRM EVF will retail for around $600 US.
**UPDATE: The Redrock Micro EVF works just great. The LCD is bright and crisp. It has a diopter adjustment for the EVF. The EVF version that I used ran on one nine volt battery. It has a power switch and one HDMI input. A HDMI splitter is needed for use with an on board monitor or director’s monitor. I will try to get a release date this week if possible. Thanks for all the comments.
