Canon EOS 5D - the beast

There's been a variety of releases of new digital cameras lately but few have been followed with such interest as the 12.8 MP Canon EOS 5D. Wide lenses stay wide and the viewfinder is bright and open. Subtle tonal gradations are reproduced in shadow, midtone and highlights. A low-pass filter and on-chip circuitry suppress false colours and noise. Low (L:50) and high (H:3200) ISO settings extend the standard 100-1600 range. The EOS 5D can shoot a 60 large JPEG image burst at 3 fps and JPEG and RAW images can be written simultaneously.


For a practical real-life field report of the EOS 5D do check out this website. Although the author of the article used a pre-production version, you'll get a pretty good idea of how it performs "in the wild". Also interesting is the first impressions article over at O'Reilly where the author writes: As soon as I took the image, I pulled the card and loaded it onto the laptop to take a closer look at it, all 12 megapixels of it. When you hear that number in the abstract, it sounds big, but when you load it into Photoshop and start working with a 35MB file, you find out quickly just how big it is.
