Support this site by shopping below

We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Canon EOS 5D for those thinking of upgrading from a cropped body like the EOS 350D / XT. There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

Good points
Most affordable full-frame body yet
Very high resolution
Very low noise levels
Good build quality (similar to 20D)

Bad points
High price premium for full-frame sensor
Full-frame coverage is unforgiving on optics
No voice memo or GPS option
No popup flash

(relative to mid-range DSLRs)
