CanonCanon EOS 5D SLR review : Since Kodak is no longer producing Pro SLRs, Canon is the only manufacturer with a digital reflex camera (D-SLR) featuring a full-sized image sensor. Until shortly the EOS-1Ds Mark II was the only camera containing such a sensor. A beautifully professional D-SLR camera but an enormous investment and possibly too big to handle for a large group of consumers. Moreover the demand for a compacter and lighter version seemed to grow and presently there was gab in between the EOS 20D and the professional Canon D-SLRs. Both gabs are now solved with the Canon EOS 5D. We have reviewed the Canon 5D, a true professional, quite compact D-SLR camera with impressive specifications.
Canon EOS 5D reviewCanon 5D reflex camera - DIGIC II
The Canon EOS 5D is driven by the same DIGIC II processor found in Canon’s EOS-1D professional range cameras. The DIGIC II processor is able to process a large amount of data in a short time. In combination with the huge internal memory it's possible to write many large sized files very quickly onto the memory card. Protected with a rugged yet lightweight magnesium alloy exterior, the digital SLR also features new Picture Style pre-sets, a new hi-resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor, 9-point auto focus with 6 invisible Assist AF points to improve tracking performance, and is compatibile with Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1. The Canon 5D digital reflex camera also features custom mode for fast recall of user defined camera set-ups, USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface for fast downloads and 1/8000 - 30 second shutter speed with X-sync at 1/200s.

Canon EOS 5D SLR - Large image sensor
The main sales argument for the Canon EOS 5D is of course the large sensor. It's a full-size image sensor meaning that the dimensions equal the 35mm format. And this means you don't suffer from focal length multiplier anymore, and this is especially ideal for wide angle lovers. Producing a full-size sensor is extremely expensive, more so because there is a lot of remainder of the wafers that the sensors are made from. You'd expect Canon to use the same sensor they've used for the EOS 1Ds Mark II, because the higher the production numbers, the lower the price will be per unit. But Canon decided to put an entirely new 12 Megapixel CMOS into the EOS 5D. It has a pixel pitch of 0.082 mm which equals the pixel pitch of speed monster; Eos-1D Mark II N. It is therefore well possible that the EOS 5D features a larger type than the one used in the EOS-1D Mark II N. Some image characteristics seem to prove this thought.

Canon 5D D-SLR lenses
The Canon EOS 5D offers complete compatibility with all Canon EF lenses , providing photo-graphers with access to a vast range of lenses with focal lengths from 14 to 600mm. The camera’s launch coincides with the release of the high performance Canon 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 Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM and Canon EF70-200mm f/4L USM lenses. An ideal match for the EOS 5D, these lenses are designed for pro photographers requiring high quality lightweight lenses with a fixed aperture throughout the zoom range.

Canon EOS 5D digital reflex camera review
It seems beforehand that the Canon 5D will become a gigantic hit. It meets the demand for a compacter professional camera; one that can fill up the gap between the EOS 20D and the 1D Mark II N. The grand surprise is that it turned out to be a full size model. Canon lent us the Canon EOS 5D with the EF 24-105 f/4 L IS USM for a short period of time.
