Spec Update
The 500D should have the following feature that were ommited from my first post on the subject.

AF will be in Movie Mode, it will be a contrast detection that performs as well as the 5D2.

I’m also told it may have a better liveview system and an articulating screen. I still have nothing definitive on those 2 features.

I’ve been promised some lens information tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.

Photo T-Shirt Contest
Keep sending me pictures, I’d like another few entries!

The winner will be selected Sunday night.

I must confess to an embarassing thing
I didn’t realize the 5D2 had AF in movie mode until today. I never tried to do it when I’ve used the camera.

  1. Wait….what kind of AF in movie mode?

    When you push the AF-ON button during recordings it does a crappy back and forth “contrast detection” focus. Ever since I have been setting focus with the x10 live view then hitting record.

  2. Yeah is this some automated AF? Of course, not that I would need that (ahem). I’d RTFM but I’m DUMB.
