Canon EOS 5D digital camera

The Canon EOS 5D offers advanced photographers a lightweight, robust digital SLR that uses Canon's superlative EF lenses without a conversion factor. Its full-frame 12.8 Megapixel CMOS sensor combines with Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor, a high-precision 9-point AF system with 6 assist points, and "Picture Style" color control to deliver images of superior quality with enough resolution for any application. With its wide-angle capabilities, 2.5 inch LCD and magnesium-alloy body, the 5D is the perfect addition to the Digital EOS line.


Equivalent in size to a frame of 35mm film, the camera?s 35.8 x 23.9 mm CMOS sensor gives photographers a full angle of view without magnification or cropping effect. It provides tighter control over depth of field and improves image quality by capturing more light with its large pixels.

Key features

  • Small, lightweight full-frame digital SLR with a 12.8 Megapixel CMOS Sensor and superb image quality.
  • DIGIC II Image Processor for outstanding image quality and performance - 3.0 fps for up to 60 consecutive JPEG or 17 RAW frames in a burst.
  • New larger 2.5 inch LCD screen can be viewed even at extreme angles up to 170&deg.
  • New "Picture Style" function for superior command of in-camera color, contrast and sharpness.
  • High-precision 9-point AF with 6 additional Supplemental points surrounding the center point for superior focus tracking.
  • Strong and light magnesium-alloy body with new shutter durability-tested to 100,000 exposures.
  • Compatible with over 50 Canon EF lenses and most EOS System accessories.

Re: Canon EOS 5D digital camera

New Picture Style pre-sets simplify in-camera control over image quality. Delivering more immediately usable JPEG images straight out of the camera without need for post-production, Picture Style pre-sets can be likened to different film types ? each one offering a different colour response. Within each easily selectable pre-set, photographers have control over sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation.

The pre-sets include:
  • Standard ? for crisp, vivid images that don?t require post-processing;
  • Portrait ? optimises colour tone and saturation and weakens sharpening to achieve attractive skin tones;
  • Landscape ? for deep greens and blues with stronger sharpening to give a crisp edge to mountain, tree and building outlines);
  • Neutral ? ideal for post-processing;
  • Faithful ? adjusts colour to match the subject colour when shot under a colour temperature of 5200K;
  • Monochrome ? for black and white shooting with a range of filter effects (yellow, orange, red and green) and toning effects (sepia, blue, purple and green)

Re: Canon EOS 5D digital camera

The ?Premium EOS? design features a magnesium alloy exterior with rubberized grip surfaces. The discreet and lightweight compact body measures just 152 x 113 x 75 mm and weighs only 810 g making it two thirds the volume and weight of the EOS-1Ds Mark II.

In a handy new feature, current camera settings can be stored and assigned to the C (camera settings) position on the Mode Dial. This allows photographers to switch quickly between two completely different camera set-ups without having to switch bodies ? ideal for photographers who need to rapidly switch their cameras from an indoor to outdoor shooting condition, for example. Exposure mode, ISO speed, AF mode, drive mode, Picture Style, white balance and custom functions are all stored in the custom setting. There are 21 custom functions with 57 user-definable settings to enable photographers to configure the camera for their preferred way of working.

Re: Canon EOS 5D digital camera

The EOS 5D offers complete compatibility with all Canon EF lenses , providing photographers with access to a vast range of lenses with focal lengths from 14 to 600 mm.

The camera?s launch coincides with the release of the high performance EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM a lightweight Image Stabilizer lens. Completing Canon?s f/4L-series zoom lens range, the new lens complements the EF17-40mm f/4L USM and EF70-200mm f/4L USM lenses. An ideal match for the lightweight EOS 5D, these lenses are designed for professional photographers requiring high quality lightweight lenses with a fixed aperture throughout the zoom range.

Also compatible with EX series Speedlites and other EOS accessories, the camera provides photographers with a highly adaptable and flexible camera system. Canon?s E-TTL II flash metering ensures accurate flash exposures by taking into account such factors as lens distance information, ambient light readings and the detection of reflective objects in order to calculate flash output.
