About Canon 5D Mark II

The EOS 5D Mark II features a huge, full-frame sensor. A 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images of up to 5616 x 3744 pixels. And since it is full-frame, all lenses will deliver the angle of view they would on a 35mm camera without a conversion factor. Thanks to improved noise reduction technologies, images shot even at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth.

The EOS 5D Mark II is the first digital EOS to offer recording of Full HD video in Live View Mode. Capable of shooting clips almost half an hour long at full 1080 resolution, the EOS 5D Mark II does amazing double duty, making it possible to shoot broadcast quality video on your camera by simply changing settings.

The advantages move way beyond the ability to shoot on your SLR - the wealth of high-speed lenses and shooting accessories that make EOS photography so remarkable can be used in shooting video. Where interchangeable lens video cameras cost thousands of dollars, with the EOS 5D Mark II their operation, including HDMI output, is simply an added bonus to a remarkable camera.

The EOS 5D Mark II has a sophisticated AF system consisting of 9 user-selectable AF points, along with a total of 6 additional vertical and horizontal AF assist points. With Live View Function on the EOS 5D Mark II, you can zoom in and navigate the composition 5x or 10x normal size.

The EOS 5D Mark II has an all-new 3.0-inch Clear View LCD that features high-resolution 920,000 dots/VGA for far more detail than any previous EOS Digital LCD. The EOS 5D Mark II is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses.

Awesome!

I bought the 5D as an upgrade to my 50D and I am not disappointed. The full frame sensor and higher pixel count make a great combination. It is a little heavier and the full frame sensor reduces the effective focal length but I am sure to quickly get used to both. I haven't used the video yet but hope to do so soon,

Do not take out in the rain.

[...] I took this camera out in moderate rain but with a lot of wind. I protected it with a plastic bag. The result was a $770 repair.

CANON POWERSHOT SX520 HS

By

First let me say that the service was superior; I got my camera within 2 days! Also: I LOVE the features on this camera and it's ease of use. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is the fact that I haven't even had it a month and the lens quit working so I have to send it clear across the country for repairs so I'll have to go through camera withdrawals for approximately 2 weeks until I get it back. If the camera was older, I'd give it a higher rating...but it's practically brand new and already has to be sent in for a manufacture error. Other than that...It's a really GREAT camera!

HI. I wanted a cameras for years, I was watching QVC, and The Cannon Rebel T5 was on , I believe a good price. I'm brand new to this much camera, I'm still learning , But very happy with the basic photos I've taken. I need help with IOS and Lighting, My zoom shots are fuzzy and I need to learn how to take Fire works and Moon shots. I'm Sure I will have fun learning.. Thank you.

Great deal!

By

I was given money for a new camera and was able to purchase a used one from this site at a great price. I use my camera for portraits and weddings, have rented the mark ii before and loved it. I was anxious to see what condition it was in and I was pleasantly surprised! Minimal wear!

Great Camera

By

This camera is great in just about every way , there are a few things i would change , the 9 point AF , im not sure why in the world there is only a 9 point AF system in the 5d mark II , this camera deserves so much better , the other small thing is low light shooting , it is ok , but a lot of noise past 1600iso , other than that , depending on your lens and i recommend using a tripod unless your very stable , you get super sharp images , and the camera just feels great , yeah a little heavy and bigger than your beginner dslr , you feel like your holding a great piece of equipment , im upgrading to the 5d mark III for the extra's , but i shoot professional portraits , and i need the extra things the mark III has , if your coming from a rebel or other amateur camera , start with the mark II , get to know the camera , and see if you need the extra stuff on the mark III if you dont the mark II works great

Daniel E  I was going to pick one up around mid January. Will this deal still be around?
XAY V  I'm pretty sure this deal will still be around. I doubt price for 5D2 will go back up.
Daniel E  Thanks for the answer!

Daniel E  Thanks for the answer!
Shopper  Why is this particular item less expensive than the other 5ds when it seems to offer more items? Makes me suspicious.
JAMES S  Is this the kit you were asking about? If it is, it is an amazing deal! But, I wouldn't be suspicious of the price though... Canon, as well as Nikon, are on the verge of releasing updated camera bodies, so the prices of the previous popular models are dropping. The Canon 5D Mark II is a great camera for both stills and video, and I'm sure it will be for some time... I wish I had this offer when I bought mine! You wouldn't be sorry with this purchase.
