Canon EOS 5D review by hdhani

hdhani, slrgear.com
14 December 2013
  • Summary: This is an old FF SLR (2005) but still takes wonderful images with great details and fine grain at higher ISOs even 3200 (compared to current APS-C SLR). I love the images this camera produced...
  • Pros: Image quality (it's FULLL FRME), substantial hand grip
  • Cons: Poor LCD, body paint (getting shiny over time), heavy, manual ISO setting

Best DSLR you can buy (still)

Z8, Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: Most people really don't understand photography. If you are one of them, just buy a 5D Mk I. Get a 5D Mk II if you want to take great movies too. The 5D MkI is better than every other DSLR for a few reasons: 1. The pixels are larger than any other professional-caliber camera 2.

17 July 2009
  • Summary: This , put quite simply is an awesome camera. Now available secondhand for about the price of an entry level APS-C Canon or Nikon with bundled kit lens in the UK , given the massive price hikes, this is fantastic value.
  • Pros: Still nothing better for image quality
  • Cons: Gren cast to monitor

23 December 2008
  • Summary: I came from the EOS 40D which is a GREAT camera, but I have to say the 5D is amazing. Even at ISO 1000 or long exposures there is very little if any noise in my photos. I didn't realize how nice having a full-frame sensor would be, and am loving the true wide-angles I can get now.

Wedding Photographer's dream...

Work of Life, Amazon
29 November 2008
  • Summary: I am a pro wedding photographer. I've had a pair of these since 2006 and could not be happier. I did quite a bit of research, not just online, but in the field. I rented various models of pro offerings from Canon and Nikon.

Still a Great Camera!

Bike John, PhotoAlley.com
24 October 2008
  • Summary: The Canon 5D is still one of the best cameras available. The full frame sensor captures very high quality images. And a 12 mega pixel image is more than enough unless you are making wall size murals.
  • Pros: Comfortable Controls, Image quality, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Canon EOS 5D review by touristguy87

touristguy87, slrgear.com
5 August 2008
  • Summary: This is an excellent example of the prosumer Canon DSLR except that it has one problem in common with just about all of the CMOS-sensored DSLR from Canon, in that it produces a lot of streak-noise in continuous-drive at ISo1600 and 3200 that shows up at about -3eV, which really ruins the shots taken...
  • Pros: moderately-good overall, good value in a fullframe
  • Cons: lacks newer features like auto-ISO

Canon EOS 5D review by pepstein

pepstein, slrgear.com
22 July 2008
  • Summary: The 5D has been on the market for a long time, but it still compares well to the competition. Full frame means lenses don't need quite the resolving power in the center, but they have to perform well at the edges and corners. It also means lenses work as they do with film bodies.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality
  • Cons: Large and heavy, no sensor cleaning features
