CanonCanon EOS 5D preview : Today we were invited to join Canon with their presentation of the 2nd digital wave that will hit the world. Amazing, how many products Canon have launched this year, every 4 days they have launched a new digital imaging product! During the presentation I was able to get my hands on the new Canon 5D digital SLR camera. Although it was only for a short moment I was able to get a first impression and the following article gives you a closer look at the already famous new Canon EOS 5D D-SLR. For those of you who already start ordering their own Canon 5D, the price in the Netherlands is set at EUR 3299,- including VAT. Expect the Canon EOS 5D digital reflex camera to be available on the market in September 2005.
Canon EOS 5D previewCanon - Only the strong survive
By the start of the presentation we were welcomed by a video clip starring Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. According to Mogens Jensen: "today we are facing a digital market with around 100 competitors, Canon estimates that in a few years from now only 3 - 4 competitors will be active in the same digital imaging market!" Of course it easy to claim such a thing, having a market share (Netherlands) of around 56% in digital SLR and almost in every category in the digital imaging market a number one position, but still, it is quite shocking.

Canon EOS 5D D-SLR
Packed in a room of 3 x 3 meters together with 40 highly interested journalist I finally got where I came for in the first place, the Canon EOS 5D. Amazingly light weighted, around 820 g, and a perfect balanced body are the first things that comes in my mind when holding the Canon 5D in my hands. The new Canon 24 - 105mm F4.0L IS USM lens was mounted on the EOS 5D D-SLR and we found the new Canon BG-E4 battery grip attached to the camera. This new accessory is especially designed for the EOS 5D. The new grip is made from the same material as the camera's exterior; magnesium alloy. The BG-E4 grip accommodates two Canon battery packs or six AA batteries. The grip features a shutter release button, AE/FE lock button, AF point selector and main dial to enable comfortable use of the camera when held vertically. Together the combination feels solid as a rock.

Canon 5D Preview
It will be a race among the reviewers; a few samples will arrive the upcoming weeks and there is too much demand. As soon as we are able to get a full-production model in the office we will bring you a Canon EOS 5D digital SLR review. For now, we were able to give you this exclusive preview from the new Canon 5D. At the upcoming IFA 2005 show Canon will be one of the participants and of course the Canon EOS 5D D-SLR will be one of the highlights!
