Wow! These specs are even better than I’d hoped for!
According to digital Photography School:
Here’s what Canon DSLR fans have been waiting for – the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR.
This 21 megapixel DSLR (CMOS full frame sensor) has an ISO range of 50 to 25600, HD movie recording (seems to be the way we’re going), Live View framing of images on it’s 3.0 inch LCD (920,000 pixels), burst mode of up to 3.9 frames per second, DIGIC IV processor and sensor dust reduction.
This beauty will set you back $2699 USD when it hits stores in November this year.
I’ve included the news release from Canon announcing the Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR below.
PS: also announced today by Canon is a new Canon 24mm f/1.4 II USM lens. Fast, wide angle which has gone through an update from its previous version.
And, from the Canon site itself:
- 21.1-megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
- New DIGIC 4 Power Processing
- EOS Integrated Cleaning System
- Full High Definition Movie Capability
(The world’s first1 DSLR that can shoot full High Definition and Standard Definition movies.)
- 3.9fps Shooting
- Expanded Live View Shooting
- 9-point Autofocus
- Wide-coverage Viewfinder
(What you see is virtually what you get with the high-performance viewfinder with approximately 98% coverage.)
- Multi-coated 920,000-dot 3.0-inch Clear View LCD Monitor
The newly designed sensor is ultra-sensitive, too, empowering you to explore creative opportunities in challenging environments thanks to a wide ISO range of 100 to 6400 at the standard setting. ISO expansion extends coverage from ISO 50 to an astounding ISO 25600. Shooting with auto ISO is also nicely responsive with a comfortable ISO range of 100 to 3200. Whether shooting outdoor scenes at night or charmingly lit interiors, you can now capture all the subtle nuances of natural lighting through the unencumbered joy of hand-held, flash-free shooting.
Awesome. Just awesome. I was aware of most of the specs from the pre-release buzz, but the HD movie mode is new to me. What do you think?
