5D Mark II

As if announcing that the 50D will be available in October, Canon has now announced that the 5D will have a big brother ... the 5D Mark II. This is an AWESOME camera! I've had my eye on the 5D as a "wish list" item, but this camera rocks. I found the info on MCP Action's blog with the press release from Canon that it will be available at the end of November. And don't worry, it's less than the cost of a used car ($2699)...

You can go to Jodi's post to read the press release, but here's the basics (which is anything but basic).

Key Specifications:

  • New 21.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with improved EOS Integrated Cleaning System (E.I.C.S.)
  • New Full HD 1080 resolution movie recording
  • 3.9 frames per second continuous shooting
  • High performance DIGIC 4 providing superb image quality
  • Maximum 310 large JPEG images in a single burst with a UDMA card
  • 3.0” VGA (920k dots) Clear View LCD
  • ISO 100-6400 (expansion from 50 up to 25,600)
  • 9 AF points + 6 Assist AF points
