Canon finally announced the new 5D Mark II and let me tell you…it looks good. Even though in my last post I guessed the wrong date, it is here… better now then never. Now let me hear a WHOOP WHOOP! Here are some of the features:
21.1 Mega-pixel Full-frame CMOS sensor, 14-bit A/D conversion (16,384 colors/each of 3 primary color), wide range ISO setting of 100-6400 (expandable L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600).
Full HD Video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution for up to 4GB per clip with HDMI output for HD viewing of stills and video.
Next generation DIGIC 4 Image Processor for faster processing of fine detail and color reproduction as well as reduced image noise.
High performance with 3.9 fps continuous shooting, new shutter with a durability of 150,000 cycles and improved weather-resistant body.
Live View Function for stills (Quick, Live and Face Detection AF modes) and video.
3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) monitor with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings for improved viewing and smudge protection.
Updated EOS Integrated Cleaning System specifically designed to work with a full-frame sensor.
Compatible with over 60 Canon EF/EF-S lenses and most EOS System accessories.
Definitely go to their website and read up more on the features. Also they have a new lens, the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II. Can’t wait until I get my hands on both these babies, but until then, take care.
