Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR Camera Review - Brand New

Why buy the Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II? The answer has to be more
megapixels. To my knowledge, there is no other brand that provides 21 megapixels, in this same
price range.

More megapixels equal higher resolution or clarity. But, it also means that the camera will have a
higher price. This is one of the highest priced models on the market, but still a worthwhile
investment for someone that wants professional quality photos.

All Canon EOS series cameras are competitive with the Nikon F series and other autofocus
cameras provided by companies such as Olympus, Pentax and Sony. EOS continues to enjoy
popularity throughout the world, regardless of the price.

As with Nikon and a few other brands, there is a dedicated electronic motor that provides the
autofocus function of the lens. In Canon models, the autofocus lenses are known as EF. In Nikon
models, the autofocus lenses are designated with an F or an AF.

Unlike older autofocus cameras, there are no mechanical parts or levers that could break over
time. But, there are a series of electrical contacts that must remain functioning, in order for the
autofocus feature of the Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II to work.

If you have been taking pictures for a while and you have ever been caught in a rainstorm, you
know what the rain can do to cameras. Rain or water will short out the electrical contacts and ruin
the motor, but this is one of Canon's more rugged models. It won't withstand the pressure of deep
sea-diving, but it should survive for a few minutes in a down pour.

Whether you decide to buy this one or a similarly priced brand, my suggestion is to invest in a
waterproof carrying case or box. Some of the ones on the market will allow you to shoot right
through the box, even on a rainy day.

With the Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II and other high end professional models,
protecting the lenses and electronics from damage is one of my primary goals. If I happen to be
doing something in a very dirty or dangerous environment, I take one of my lower-priced cameras
along for the trip.

Released in 2008, the 5D Mark II replaced the 5D. You might be wondering if there is any reason
to buy the newer model, if you already have the 5D. Well, there are some new features that you
might be interested in.

The Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II can record 12 minutes of video at a high
resolution of 1920X1080. That's a higher resolution and 7 minutes more recording time than you
can get from a mid-range Nikon.

At lower resolutions, you can get as much as 30 minutes of recording time. So, if you like to shoot
home movies, this is one of the better cameras to choose.

Other upgrades include live preview and the ability to watch your movies on your high definition
TV. Reviews for the Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II have been mostly positive. I
would have to give it 5 stars.

Description: started out in photography using a Canon Powershot A50. I had bought the camera in 2000 because that is when my first son was born. I did not want to miss anything as he grew up and I had never owned a camera before.
