Product Description

Product Description

Canon EOS 5D Digital Camera (BODY ONLY)...

Manufacturer's Description

The EOS 5D has a solid and substantial feel that complements its compact dimensions. The camera body is constructed of a magnesium-alloy known for its lightweight and ultra-rigid strength. The EOS 5D also boasts a newly developed, high-speed and durable shutter unit that was designed to meet the demanding requirements of a full frame sensor in a relatively compact body. With a top shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. and with a remarkable 100,000-cycle shutter life, it truly is a camera built to professional standards.

The Canon DC100
EOS 5D with 50mm lens (lens not included)

The EOS 5D's full-frame CMOS sensor records 4,368 x 2,912 pixels-that's 12.8 Megapixels, larger than many other companies' top-of-the-line sensors. The same size as a 35mm image on a traditional camera, the sensor operates without a conversion factor. This is perfect for taking advantage of the spectacular optics in Canon's L-series, and will be a joy for wide-angle enthusiasts who can make the most of their wide-angle lenses. This new CMOS sensor, designed in-house by Canon, provides smooth, high-resolution images similar to the EOS-1Ds Mark II but in a more compact body. Two automatic noise reduction features maximize the effectiveness of the EOS 5D's on-chip noise reduction. Noise reduction can be activated when noise is detected or it will simply come into play on any exposure of 1 second or longer.

The EOS 5D's new 12.8 Megapixel sensor is driven by the revolutionary DIGIC II Image Processor for unprecedented performance and image quality. Thanks to the DIGIC II Image Processor, the EOS 5D is capable of shooting up to 3 frames-per-second for up to 60 JPEG or 17 RAW images. The information captured by the sensor is processed and assembled into images of exceptional clarity and resolution. Photographers can expect precise, natural colors, spot-on white balance and speed in any number of lighting situations. By handling larger volumes of image data, the DIGIC II Image Processor also contributes to lower power consumption: photographers will discover that they can shoot all day with the EOS 5D without having to change the battery!

The EOS 5D has been designed to provide the photographer with instant feedback, saving valuable time when reviewing images. A new 2.5 inch LCD screen with approximately 230,000 pixels not only displays more information, it can be viewed at a far greater angle (170°) than many other conventional LCD screens. The full-featured shot information screen not only provides an RGB histogram, it displays the AF frames used. Magnification to check exposure and critical focus has never been faster. It is also simple to jump quickly in image intervals up to 100. Menus are accessed at the touch of a button, and feature larger, easier to read text than previous models. Whether changing color parameters, setting up custom functions, organizing folders, setting white balance, or any other feature, the new screen is designed with the professional in mind. Photographers get to their information quickly, so they never lose a shot.

"Picture Style" settings simulate the characteristics of different film styles, including Snapshot mode, for punchy, print-from-the-camera color, Portrait mode, for softer, more natural skin tones; Landscape, for vivid blues and greens and overall sharpness, plus Neutral, Faithful and Monochrome, which can be customized to emulate color filters with black and white film.

The Canon DC100
EOS 5D included accessories

In addition to 9 different AF points for locking focus on subjects, even if they are not in the center of the composition, the EOS 5D features 6 Supplemental points around the center AF point which help to ensure an even greater degree of focus accuracy when tracking a moving subject. This feature is significant for sports photographers, as well as anyone who needs to keep focus locked on an unpredictable subject. The Supplemental AF points are not displayed in the viewfinder, and they cannot be manually selected. However, they are used in AI Servo AF mode when the EOS 5D is set for automatic focusing point selection, and also when the center focusing point is selected together with Custom Function 17-1.

The EOS 5D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup (except EF-S lenses), ranging from 14mm Ultra-Wide to 600mm Super Telephoto lenses. The EF lineup employs advanced optical know-how and sub-micron precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Aspherical optics and Fluorite elements, for example, are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series Lenses while Canon's Image Stabilization feature minimizes the effect of camera shake.

The EOS 5D features Canon's E-TTL II flash metering system introduced with the EOS-1D Mark II. E-TTL II provides consistently accurate flash exposure from shot to shot. Canon's Speedlite 580EX and 430EX are perfectly suited to the EOS 5D. They include an AF-assist Beam, which works in conjunction with the EOS 5D's focusing system, and automatically sends color temperature information to the camera when the flash fires, for more accurate color rendition with flash photography.

As a keen amateur photographer and already having a range of Canon gear I was very interested when this camera came onto the market and bought it pretty much immediately.

Before then, I used an Canon 300D which in itself is an excellent camera but suffers by not having a full-size sensor, is lacking in a number of more advanced features and is generally quite slow.

The sensor size is the key feature (and being the most expensive part of the camera the key price component) so it is important to consider whether you want a full-size sensor or a smaller one (as may be found on the EOS 30D for example). There are two schools of thought re the sensor size. On one hand, you can multiply the focal length of your lens by 1.6 (in the case of the 30D) to get the new focal length and there is therefore no difference (an 8 megapixel image will print perfectly to A4 size and probably A3 size). The limitation here is on wide angle, where you cannot get as wide a landscape view as you would with a full-size sensor. At the high focal length (eg. wildlife / sporting events) you do not lose out, but you do not benefit either, since a larger sensor would in effect contain the image from the smaller one within its image.

If you are new to SLR photography then this may not too big an issue, as you can purchase a range of lenses to meet these needs. In such a case, the EOS 30D may well be a more suitable purchase, offering most the features of the 5D at a much lower price in part as a result of the smaller sensor.

I recently upgraded from the 20D, and had read some mixed reviews about how much better the 5D was, one saying there is not much difference up to A4......well I am hear to tell you this is far from true.

The 5D has astonished me from the start. Having the same layout as the 20D made it an easy transition. I think the sharpness and color rendition are more than significanly better than the 20D....having the 24-105mm L series obviously helps though.

You also appreciate the full frame sensor...especially with scenery shots....

You won't need to spend as much time on Photoshop either, perhaps just the odd tweak here and there.

This is a fantastic camera and worth every penny.

I have had a EOS-3 and a half decent bunch of EF lenses in a lowepro bag in a cupboard since the onset of the digital age and my purchase of my first good digital camera (a FinePix S602 zoom) in 2003. Now that my scepticism of digital photography has been dispelled, it was time to re-visit my EF lens collection with a DSLR. And then I was faced with the usual full frame versus small frame dilemma. And the worry that the 5D is fairly old and due for replacement imminently. And the 1DS in its various models is way too expensive a weighs a ton. But I went for one of these and don't regret it for a second. My friend bought a 30D around the same time, so I've had the chance to play with both and the full frame sensor is just the bomb. Firstly, all my lenses are exactly what it says on the barrel - so wide lenses stay wide. And the image quality that the bigger individual pixels provides is really noticeable. Colour reproduction and saturation is excellent - even on the bog standard unadjusted settings. And if it's not to your taste, then the 5D gives you the flexibility to vary the image in a staggering number of ways. Even a range of digital filters in the B/W setting! And like my 3, it has a custom setting that recalls your personal shooting preference settings with a turn of the control dial. Super handy. And it has a greater number of custom functions than the majority of the smaller sensor models - such as the order of bracketing (for both exposure and WB), noise reduction for long exposures, and of course, turning the irritating bleep off. And like the 3, you can vary the function of the control wheel on the back, and the function of various buttons. Its a great camera to use - everything is exactly at your fingertips.Read more ›

This camera met all my expectations, it's a pity good secondhand glass isn't as affordable. The difference between this and crop-frame DSLR is astonishing - all my images look superb. You need to know how to use a camera to get the most out of it as auto mode does not give the best results. I was worried about autofocus speed on an 8 year-old camera, but it's fine, as long as you're not expecting to shoot racing cars etc. For portraits it's real peachy creamy.

I bought this camera 3 months ago and after about a 2 and a half months the mirror on the inside of the camera fell off and to my shock, I found that it had a big splodge of super glue on the back of it.

This seller had clearly super glued the mirror back on (which you are not supposed to do) and then lied about the description of the camera, detailing as used but in full working condition. This was falsely advertised as it obviously wasn't in full working condition it was just going to work long enough for him to be able to fob it off on someone.

Amazon has been extremely unhelpful in me getting a refund or replacement, purely because I didn't tell the seller it was faulty within two weeks of receiving it. This is clearly a load of rubbish as super glue IS going to hold for longer than two weeks and also it clearly states in their refund and return policy that if the item did not match the description that the seller had described then the customer qualifies for a refund or a return.

I strongly urge on one to buy from this person/company!! And to not fully trust that Amazon are going to follow through on their part of helping you. Terrible customer service!
