  • Conclusion: Canon EOS 5D professional SLR camera The Canon EOS 5D is positioned in between the popular semi-professional EOS 20D and the true professional working horses of the EOS-1D series. It nicely fills up the gab in this series and the EOS 5D does that more than convincing. At first the Canon EOS 5D appears to be an enhanced EOS 20D, but that does the Canon EOS 5D wrong.

Canon EOS 5D review - long term test

Camera Labs
1 May 2006
  • Summary: In our introduction we asked if the Canon EOS-5D was the holy grail of digital SLRs or the solution to a problem which no longer existed. After all, in the time it's taken for a full-frame body to become relatively affordable, the cropped digital SLR market has matured considerably. A number of very short focal length lenses designed for cropped sensors are now available, effectively addressing any concerns over extreme wide angle coverage.
  • Pros: Most affordable full-frame body yet, Very high resolution, Very low noise levels, Good build quality (similar to 20D)
  • Cons: High price premium for full-frame sensor, Full-frame coverage is unforgiving on optics, No voice memo or GPS option, No popup flash

Canon EOS 5D Review

Digitaltrends
10 January 2006
  • Excerpt: The Standard setting produces images that are crisp and vivid with the sharpness set to mid-scale and the color tone and saturation set to obtain vivid colors. In the Portrait setting, the color tone and saturation are set to obtain nice skin tones with the sharpness set one step weaker than the Standard setting so the skin and hair look softer.
  • Pros: First "affordable" full frame D-SLR, Excellent picture quality, Full-frame CMOS imager, Very fast response, Very little noise
  • Cons: Definition of "affordable" is for Bill Gates, No built-in flash or AF Assist lamp, No traditional Scene modes

Canon EOS 5D Review

What Digital Camera
5 December 2005
  • Summary: This is a superb camera, with only minor niggles, mainly ones that can be levelled at any Canon c’s face it: they’re unlikely to dissuade people from investing. In terms of performance and image quality, there’s not much this camera can’t do and it should win many fans.
  • Pros: Well built, good features, speed of use, images
  • Cons: Some fiddly controls, very faint edge fringing

EOS 5D review

Digital Arts
4 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Canon’s current range of digital SLRs set the benchmark against which all others are gauged, though their success has been largely based on proprietary CMOS sensor technology. As a result, the company has been in the unique position of offering photographers a choice of cameras with a mix of APS-sized and full-frame (35mm) sensors.
  • Pros: Canon’s full-frame CMOS sensor allows you to make use of the company’s extensive range of wide-angle lenses without any magnification factor.
  • Cons: The EOS 5D is the cheapest full-frame digital SLR, but at £1,958 it’s still pricey. There are few handling niggles too.

  • Summary: The EOS 5D is Canon’s “entry-level” full frame SLR. It’s a stunning camera that has many advantages but it does require the very best lens in order to make the most of its features. Unless you’re printing up very large photos this camera could be a case of overkill. Consider the Nikon D200 or Canon EOS 30D instead.

TEST: Canon EOS 5D - bedre og bedre

PC World
28 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Canon EOS 5D er et speilreflekskamera som har satt tydelige spor etter seg. Kameraet, som nå er ute i tredje generasjon, har spilt en sentral rolle i prosessen med å gjøre fullformat-speilreflekser tilgjengelige for flere enn bare rendyrkede proff-fotografer.
  • Pros: Robust kamera; topp bildekvalitet i fullformat, særlig i RAW; god ergonomi; enormt tilbehørsomfang.
  • Cons: Bratt lærekurve; bare monomikrofon innebygd; litt stort og tungt (til tilfeldig fotografering).

Canon EOS 5D Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Ik ben ervan overtuigd dat de EOS 5D niet het eindpunt is van een periode, maar de start van een heel interessante tijd. Met betaalbare camera's die een hoge resolutie koppelen aan een voortreffelijke beeldkwaliteit. De Canon 5D heeft veel indruk op mij gemaakt en ik heb dan ook met grote tegenzin de EOS 5 weer afgeleverd bij Canon. De Canon 5D is meer dan aan te raden, een absolute must voor de Pro, maar ook voor diegene die een tree hoger wil, uitmuntend!

  • Excerpt: La disputa tra i detrattori e gli apostoli del fotogramma completo normalmente finiva parlando di prezzi e necessità. Le poche reflex full-frame esistenti erano -finora- molto care e specialistiche, estranee al fotografo principiante. L'amateur danaroso e il professionista più risparmiatore hanno adesso più a portata di mano un formato completo con la EOS 5D della Canon.
  • Pros: rumore quasi inesistente, magnifica riproduzione del colore, enorme buffer, mirino grande e molto brillante, monitor di buona qualità...
  • Cons: nitidezza migliorabile, raffica abbastanza lenta, dispone soltanto di tre livelli di compressione JPEG, cattivo rendimento di certi bilanciamenti prefissati…
