CMOS sensors are tastier without Jello

The Canon 5D MKII doesn’t appear to suffer from excess rolling shutter skew

We’ve already seen some excellent video footage from the new Canon 5D MarkII DSLR camera. However, I’ve not really seen the sort of test footage that reveals CMOS wobble (the jello effect) or rolling shutter skew. While this isn’t a perfect test, I was encouraged to see a lot of motion in the following video shot on the streets of Beijing. It appears, anecdotally at least, that the 5D samples from it’s sensor much faster than the ultra-wobbly Nikon D90, and the camera sure looks like it would handle most situations with aplomb. Video embedded below.
