Conclusion: This is a terrific D-SLR as one would expect for the price. There’s no getting away from the fact it’s the smallest and lightest full-frame D-SLR available and it delivers superb picture quality. Digital noise is practically a thing of the past.
Pros: Excellent picture quality, Full-frame CMOS imager, Very fast response, Very little noise
Cons: No built-in flash or AF Assist lamp, No traditional Scene modes
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.
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.
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
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
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...
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.
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.
Conclusion: Reflex Pro Canon EOS 5D Le reflex Canon EOS 5D est positionné juste entre l'appareil semi pro 20D et le très pro EOS 1Ds. Le 5D bouche le creux dans la gamme Canon et il le fait avec brio. A première vue, on est tenté de dire que le 5D est un 20D bodybuildé, mais cette impression est fausse.
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.
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…
