ISO minimum 100

~ Intro ~ Although being a satisfied owner of its predecessor, the 5D Mk II is a quantum leap in terms of camera. Both are full frame sensor cameras, but I was attracted to the Mk II due to the almost doubling of megapixels to 21.1. In my view, the difference in picture quality between the...

“The mighty 5D (mark II)”

Image quality, video function, Canon lenses

overheating

This incredible camera I have owned now for about half a year. Its a reasonable weight to begin with. Well under 3kg with mounted lens. There are a great selection of Canon lenses to choose from too. The 35mm full frame sensor allows for zero cropping when using Canon lenses and along with 21MP...

“A truly remarkable camera.”

Hd video recording, great photos, looks good

EXPENSIVE!

This camera is one hell of a camera and I was not disappointed buying this. I have been making some extra cash doing photography for parties and similar types of things just lately and this has been my new best friend. It is reliable and takes very high quality pictures as well as having the...

Price, easily smudged screen

I went from a canon 400d and the differences were amazing. The first thing you notice is the superior build, it feels so much more tough and its more comfortable to hold as it is bigger. The screen is alot bigger and better quality although its very easily smudged. The wheel give you easy...

Frame rate could be a touch faster.

I have had my 5DMk2 for around a year now and I still love this camera. I would recomend this camera for those serious about image quality, proffessional photographers or very keen others. Here are some specs- 21.1 megapixel (5,616 × 3,744 pixels). This is on a full frame sensor and does give...

The Canon 5D Mark II camera is expensive but very well featured. It has excellent image quality from its full frame 21 megapixel sensor. 21MP means that it can outresolve many lenses so be careful and only use the best! Huge exhibition sized prints can be made and they will look fantastic. Full...

Just that bit technical

Canon's Master Stroke, Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Canon never requires to be proved that they show the way and are always miles ahead of their nearest competitors. Flawless HD video performance, add to that DIGIC 4 processor and yes at 21 megapixel. And the price tag hardly requires to be justified...
