Canon recently announced the celebration of the 10th year anniversary for the introduction of the Canon EOS 5D and the subsequent models that followed. Launched in September 2005, the original EOS 5D was a digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera that was aimed at advanced-amateur users and came with a 35mm full-frame sensor, something which was previously only available to professional users. Following this, the EOS 5D Mark II enabled full HD video while the EOS 5D Mark III featured significant improvements to image and video quality. According to Canon, it will continue to support and drive the EOS 5D series by further strengthening the EOS-series of interchangeable-lens camera lineup. While there are no specific models or Malaysia release dates named, we should expect more soon.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II - Performance:
Canon, the first company to introduce a full-frame digital camera, has improved the EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR camera's newly developed full-frame CMOS image sensor. Utilizing proprietary Canon technology, the Company has reduced noise and expanded the sensitivity of the CMOS sensor up to ISO 25600, which is three full stops higher than the ISO 3200 limit of the original EOS 5D camera. Although the individual pixel dimensions of the EOS 5D Mark II camera are the same as the 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor used in the EOS-1Ds Mark III digital SLR, the new sensor incorporates an improved output amplifier and a more advanced color filter that improves light transmission while retaining excellent color reproduction. By applying the same kind of advancements in sensor design and image processing technology as the recently introduced EOS 50D camera, but at higher resolution and with larger pixels, the EOS 5D Mark II achieves the highest level of image quality of any EOS Digital SLR released to date.
