The Canon EOS-5D is unlike any other offering in its class, with a full-frame, 12.8 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a relatively compact body. For quite awhile, photographers have looked forward to a camera body with a full-frame sensor which would make the complete transition of 35mm photography to the digital format. Well, here it is!
Sized and featured between the EOS-20D and EOS-1Ds Mk II, the EOS 5D is a fantastic tool capable of producing outstanding results. Meant primarily for professionals and advanced amateurs, you can get the most out of this versatile camera with a solid knowledge of the features of the available lenses. The range of automatic “Picture Styles” achieves results like changing film stock, and the range of in-camera image parameters is more than impressive.
The camera’s buffer alone holds 60 consecutive JPEG or 17 RAW images in a burst, before resorting to the (not included) memory card. The image stabilizer and DIGIC II image processor provide you with the clearest pictures you can take! With its wide-angle capabilities, 2.5 inch LCD and magnesium-alloy body, the 5D is the perfect addition to the Digital EOS line
12.8 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor The EOS 5D's full-frame CMOS sensor records12.8 megapixels (4,368 x 2,912), the same size as a 35mm image on a traditional camera. The Canon in-house designed CMOS sensor produces smooth, high-resolution images. Two automatic noise reduction features maximize the EOS 5D's on-chip noise reduction effectiveness.
DIGIC II Image Processor The EOS 5D's new 12.8 Megapixel CMOS sensor is driven by the revolutionary DIGIC II Image Processor for unprecedented performance and image quality. The DIGIC II Image Processor captures up to 3 frames-per-second for up to 60 JPEG or 17 RAW images in a burst.
Large 2.5 inch LCD Monitor The EOS 5D provides instant feedback to save you time when reviewing images. The new 230K pixel 2.5 inch LCD provides more information and far greater viewing angles (170°) than many other conventional units. The full-featured shot information screen displays the AF frames in use with an RGB histogram feature.
Advanced 9-point AF 9 different AF points and 6 Supplemental points around the central AF greatly enhance focus accuracy when tracking a moving subject. This feature is perfect for sports photographers and anyone who needs to keep focus on an unpredictable subject.
PictBridge Support The EOS 5D makes photograph printing easier than ever. Simply connect your EOS 5D to any PictBridge-compatible printer, select your image and print settings, and press the Direct Print button to start printing.
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface The EOS 5D supports the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed standard for the highest possible data transfer speeds when using a USB 2.0 compatible computer.
