The 5D Mark II was used in recent movies and TV shows such as Act of Valor, Red Tails, Walking Dead, 24, Hawaii Five-O and many more. The new 5D Mark III is not only upgraded to address picture quality, but is putting in features that will make filmmakers more productive. This model will be popular with photo journalists that require both photos and video.
Professional Video Features: The HD movie mode can shoot Full 1080p HD Video at frame rates 1080p @30fps & 24fps, 720p @ 60 fps with manual exposure control. The movie function has been greatly improved by adding a headphone jack for monitoring audio while shooting. You can also monitor (on the LCD screen) the audio levels, and adjust them.
