The Canon EOS 5D Mark II was introduced with little fanfare until Vincent Laforet shot the video short, Reverie. Seemingly overnight, filmmakers saw the potential of the full-frame DSLR for video image capture. We were the first rental house in NYC to offer the 5D for videography. We saw our units used on SNL, numerous commercials, music videos, documentaries and independent projects.
The 5D has a 21.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor, an ISO Range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600), plus Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral Illumination Correction. It can shoot up to 3.9 fps, has 9 AF points plus 6 AF assist points, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) and a rugged build.
