I have a client who wants to produce a number of short video's to be included on his web site. Although initially and primarily the video's would be used for web use there is some talk of producing some for promo work to be shown on wide screen TV's, but this is only a possibility, but 1080p capability would be essential.
Looking at a number of cameras it looks as though either the Canon 5DMk2 or the Canon 60D may be suitable and within the price bracket for the project. Useful as I already have a range of Canon lenses
Comparing the 2 cameras there seems to be only little differences between them for the video side.
The 5DMK2 does have a bigger sensor, but I don't think that will make much difference in these videos. It does however have the ability to shoot in either Tv or Av mode for video as well as Auto and Manual exposure. The 60D only has Auto and manual. Both have level controls for the audio. The 60D does have a flip out LCD screen which may be advantageous
The 60D is around half the price of the 5D mk2.
So really apart from the ability to use Tv and Av modes ( which could be a small advantage, I planned to use manual exposure anyway ) Have I missed any significant advantage the 5D has over the 60D ? I don't really need another full frame large sensor camera, but if the 5D Mk2 is much better than it wouldn't be a problem to stretch to this.
