Night vision not included

One of the biggest advantages to using a 5D Mark II over a traditional video camera is its superb low-light capability. I recently built a website for the Louisville jazz band Fattlabb and shot stills and video for the site.

I used two lenses, a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L and a manual Nikkor 50mm f/1.4. Pushing the camera's ISO at times to 4000-6400 I was able to capture great footage in what was a very dark stage at Louisville's Zanzabar.
