Canon 5D MkII video – Egypt/ Lebanon by Khalid Mohtaseb

Since the day of its launch, I have set my eyes upon the new Canon 5D MkII camera… Apart from its excellent quality of photos, Canon 5D MkII was the first to introduce real High-Definition video capturing. Well, to be true I am a passionate photographer but not fond of video capturing…

But then what do i know?!! 

My mind changed when I saw the work of Khalid Mohtaseb, who made an excellent montage of scenes from Egypt and Lebanon. Khalid captured Cairo and Beirut, using Canon 5D’s excellent capabilities, but his “film” has so much power emitting from people’s faces, that reminds me how life very frequently makes pictures by itself. It doesn’t matter whether it is photography or video. It’s life that interests me after all…

Watch it! You will be amazed! Congrats Khalid!
