Small point-and-shoot digicams have had the ability to shoot short videos for a while, but digital SLRs are just catching up. Recently Nikon [TYO:7731] announced its new D90 DSLR, which came with an HD movie mode that shot in 720p. But Canon [CAJ] has one-upped their pro-level rival with the latest EOS 5D Mark II, which sports a full-frame CMOS sensor and adds a full 1080p movie mode that can shoot at 30 frames per second.
Canon [NYSE:CAJ] is reportedly refreshing their 5D digital SLR with a new version called the 5D Mk II, which may arrive as soon as September at the Photokina show. CanonRumors is spreading word that they've gotten leaked specs for the 5D Mk II, which their sources say will feature a full-frame, 21.1MP sensor, DIGIC IV, and even a movie mode that can shoot in HD.
