Other improvements to the EOS 5D include:

Addition of Canon’s EOS Integrated Cleaning System, with a new Fluorine coating on the low-pass filter

Larger 3.0-inch Clear View LCD with VGA resolution, a 170-degree angle of view, and anti-reflective coatings

Improved menu system including Quick Control Screen for more direct access to common settings

Automatic peripheral illumination correction, utilizing detailed EF lens information to optimize JPEG images straight out of the camera

Magnesium alloy construction with additional environmental protection

UDMA memory card compatibility

EOS 5D Mark II Highlights

 

New CMOS sensor

The EOS 5D Mark II’s newly designed full-frame 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor features ISO sensitivity from 100-6400, expandable to 50, 12,800, and 25,600. Large 6.4µm2 pixels have been redesigned to capture more light and yield a better signal to noise ratio to ensure lower noise images throughout the ISO range. The full-frame sensor has the same dimensions as a frame of 35mm film. This means that wide-angle lenses stay wide, without the change in the angle of view associated with smaller sensor cameras. As well as benefiting from finer control over depth of field, photographers moving up to the EOS 5D Mark II’s full-frame format will find the newly designed wide, bright 98 percent coverage viewfinder a joy to work with.

 

New DIGIC 4 processor

A new DIGIC 4 processor combined with a 14-bit analog to digital conversion provides smooth gradations in mono-tonal areas such as skies and highly accurate color rendition. As well as HD movie shooting, DIGIC 4’s high speed provides for long uninterrupted continuous bursts of large JPEGs, near-instant start-up times, and immediate and fast review after shooting. DIGIC 4 also provides for improved noise reduction algorithms, complementing the already low-noise images from the EOS 5D Mark II’s CMOS sensor.

 

HD video capture

The EOS 5D Mark II is Canon’s first DSLR to incorporate full HD 1920x1080 video capture. Once filming is started from Live View mode, photographers can fire off either single of continuous stills, with video capture continuing after the final frame is captured.

 

See everything

A new 3.0-inch VGA resolution LCD provides a wide 170-degree angle-of-view, providing plenty of clarity for accurate focus checks in playback. The screen brightness can automatically adjust to suit viewing conditions, extending battery life in low light, and improving viewing in bright conditions. A new dedicated Live View button switches modes to display a real-time image on the LCD. This allows EOS 5D Mark II photographers to enjoy simplified shooting from awkward angles. A simple connection to a PC provides easy remote shooting.

 

Precision focus and metering

A 9-point autofocus system is supported by 6 additional invisible Assist AF points, located inside the spot-metering circle to optimize subject tracking performance in AI SERVO AF mode. For accurate exposure readings in tricky lighting conditions, the spot metering circle covers just 3.5 percent of the frame.

 

Control

The EOS 5D Mark II’s redesigned menu system includes a new Quick Control screen, for instant access to the most commonly changed settings. A new Creative Auto mode allows photographers to cede control of key settings to the camera while retaining control over creative variables such as background blur, drive mode, and image brightness. Custom user settings allow photographers to switch between two completely different camera setups. This is ideal for changing quickly between two different environments, such as switching from working inside a church without flash to outdoors with fill-flash at a wedding.
