The Canon EOS 5D was developed to meet the needs of advanced amateurs seeking a high-performance 35 mm full-frame image-sensor-equipped digital SLR camera that is smaller and lighter than professional models. Featuring a full-frame 35 mm CMOS sensor boasting 12.8 million effective pixels, the EOS 5D realizes outstanding image resolution, rich color gradation, and a wide ISO sensitivity range (ISO 100-1600, L:50, H:3200). The 35 mm sensor size also allows users to fully utilize the angles of view offered by the entire range of Canon EF lenses*, permitting unrestricted lens performance for a shooting feel on par with film SLR cameras. Moreover, the new camera incorporates Canon’s proprietary DIGIC II imaging engine, providing detailed and natural color reproduction, and ultra high-speed image processing to meet the needs of advanced users.

The latest addition to Canon’s EOS digital lineup backs outstanding image quality with high responsiveness. The Canon EOS 5D achieves a continuous shooting speed of approximately 3 frames per second for up to around 60 consecutive frames (JPEG L, fine) in a sequence while also realizing an ultra-fast startup of just 0.2 seconds. The model offers high-response writing of images to CompactFlash card media, and includes a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface, enabling high-speed transfer of image data to a PC. In addition, the EOS 5D sports a newly developed 9-point AF + 6 Assist AF point sensor (high precision AF at f/2.8 with three AF points).

Canon’s EOS 5D features a revolutionary new Picture Style function which consolidates and advances the processing parameters and color matrix settings. Users can achieve optimized images by simply selecting from six preset settings –Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Faithful, and Monochrome– to match their shooting objectives, just as they would select the type of film according to the desired effect. Compared with previous models, the new function offers approximately double the adjustment range for sharpness, contrast, color saturation and color tone. Picture Style will also be incorporated in future Canon digital SLR cameras to ensure unified and consistent image characteristics across the EOS Digital lineup.

Other high-end features supporting superior performance sure to please advanced amateur users include a large 2.5″ LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 dots and a wide 170-degree viewing angle, and interchangeable focusing screens. The new camera also features 21 Custom Functions with 57 settings. The new EOS 5D offers outstanding resilience, realizing a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 second with shutter durability capable of withstanding 100,000 cycles.

With a plethora of advanced features, including contained in a stylish, compact, and lightweight body made of magnesium alloy, the Canon EOS 5D offers users luxury and reliability on par with professional-use cameras.
