The full frame 12.8 megapixel EOS 5D. Discreet enough to avoid attention, with resolution enough to keep the toughest picture editors happy. Travel light without compromise.

Full frame: With no cropping or magnification effect, the EOS 5D's 12.8 MP full frame CMOS sensor (35.8 x 23.9mm) offers full freedom of expression. Wide lenses stay wide and the viewfinder is bright and open. Subtle tonal gradations are reproduced in shadow, midtone and highlights. A low-pass filter and on-chip circuitry suppress false colours and noise. Low (L:50) and high (H:3200) ISO settings extend the standard 100-1600 range.

3 fps: The EOS 5D can shoot a 60 large JPEG image burst at 3 fps.

Auto focus and flash: 9-point AF is supported with 6 Assist AF points to improve subject tracking. AF modes include One Shot AF, AI SERVO AF and AI FOCUS AF. E-TTL II communicates with EX series Speedlites for consistently accurate flash exposures, even with reflective or off-centre subjects.

Large LCD: Illuminated by 6 LEDs, the bright 2.5" 230K pixel LCD is viewable from 85° in almost all directions.

Picture Style: Picture Style pre-sets simplify in-camera control over image processing,&-sets can be likened to different film types - each one offering a different colour response. Each pre-set has control over sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation.

DIGIC II: DIGIC II renders colours with precision and accuracy. Fast and efficient, DIGIC II minimises power consumption for prolonged battery life and delivers instant 0.2 second start up time.

JPEG and RAW: JPEG and RAW images can be written simultaneously.

Digital Photo Professional software: The Digital Photo Professional software permits high-speed processing of lossless RAW images.

Compact and robust: The EOS 5D's tough, compact magnesium alloy body weighs just 810 grams; ideal for assignments requiring discretion.

Options and connectivity: The EOS 5D is compatible with over 60 EF lenses (excl. EF-S) and all EX Series Speedlite flash units. Untethered shooting is available with the optional WFT-E1 Wireless File Transmitter. USB 2.0 Hi-Speed permits fast file uploads, while Video Out allows review on a regular TV. An optional magnesium alloy battery grip extends shooting time and offers comfortable portrait shooting with a vertical shutter release. A Precision Matte focusing screen is interchangeable with Grid and Easy Manual Focus screen options.
