Canon Beyond The Still

Canon is running “Beyond The Still”, a television commercial featuring the Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera, connecting with their sponsorship of NFL. Five still shots burst into life, demonstrating the moving nature of photography. The ad features a photographer’s (Canon 5D Mark II) eye view of a family heading out to enjoy a day out at a San Diego Chargers NFL game. What if a moment standing still could be just as beautiful when it breathes?
