I. OVERVIEW In the Canon DSLR lineup, the gap between the EOS 20D camera, at about $1,500, and the new EOS-1D Mark II N camera, at about $4,000, represents an irresistible marketing and engineering opportunity. Of course, many combinations of size, performance, ruggedness and complexity are possible, especially for Canon. Canon has the inestimable advantage of being able to mix original design elements with existing, proven, successful components and software, as appropriate, from the EOS-1Ds

to use. Also new and shared with the EOS-1D Mark II N camera is the Picture Style approach to the management of image characteristics, which users will appreciate for its ease of use and more coherent set of controls. Trim and convenient size and weight are important parts of the EOS 5D camera’s character. At 810 grams, the 5D model is unusually easy to carry and to hold, especially when its resolution and full-frame sensor are taken into account. It is roughly the size of the original EOS 1 fil

PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY Remarkable New The heart of the Canon EOS 5D Digital SLR is Full-Frame 12.8 Megapixel its extraordinary new, Canon-designed and CMOS Sensor –manufactured, full-frame, single-plate 12.8 megapixel sensor. This is enough resolution for a double page spread in a magazine, a large print of the bride and groom, facial detail in group shots or a landscape of 35.8mm impressive dimensions. The sensor’s 35.8mm CMOS sensor (actual size) x 23.9mm size means that each pixel

AF sensor positions Sophisticated The EOS 5D camera has a new 9-point AF unit New AF System with six Supplemental AF points, a new AF algorithm and new AF circuitry. The new AF system improves subject detection and focusing precision at the center, the most frequently used area, and significantly enhances su

previous cameras, focusing starts from the center AF point. If it cannot track the subject, the other AF points will help. The Supplemental AF points enhance subject tracking performance and enable a smoother transition from the center AF point to adjacent AF points. When C.Fn-17-1, AI SERVO AF and the center AF point are set together, subject tracking is improved because the seven AF points within the spot metering circle will be active: the center AF point and the six Supplemental AF points.

100,000-cycle life this unit enjoys. This is a level of durability expected in a professional camera. For example, based on Canon’s test standards, the EOS-1D Mark II and – 1Ds Mark II cameras are rated at 200,000 shots; the EOS-1v model is rated at 150,000 shots and the EOS-1n camera is rated at 100,000. In another clever bit of reliability engineering, because the electronic X-contact has been added to the sync contacts, the shutter unit’s X-sync function uses an optically detected, contact

Power Sources The EOS 5D camera is normally powered by one Battery Pack BP-511A/514/511/512. (The BP-511A/514 holds 1,390mAh, 26% more than the 1,100mAh of the BP-511/512.) With a fully charged BP-511A or BP-514, the EOS 5D can take approximately 800 shots at 20°C/68°F or 400 shots at 0°C/32°F. The 5D’s accessory battery grip, the BG-E4, takes up to two of the BG-E4 same series of battery packs, effectively doubling shooting time, or uses six easy-to- obtain AA-size batteries (alkaline, lithium
