Product Details

Canon Black 21.1 Megapixel EOS Digital SLR Camera With 24-105mm Lens - EOS5DMARKIIKIT

High Performance for High Expectation
Canon's update to the wildly popular full frame EOS 5D is here, and it's better than ever. The EOS 5D Mark II has a stunning 21.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor, a vast ISO Range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600), plus EOS technologies like Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral Illumination Correction. It supports Live View shooting, Live View HD videos, and more. It can shoot up to 3.9 fps, has 9 AF points plus 6 AF assist points, a new 98% coverage viewfinder, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) and a rugged build. Full-frame shooters rejoice!

Highest ISO Range to Date.
21.1 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor, 14-bit A/D conversion (16,384 colors/each of 3 primary color), wide range ISO setting of 100-6400 (expandable L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600).

The EOS 5D Mark II features a huge, full-frame sensor. A 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images of up to 5616 x 3744 pixels. And since it is full-frame, all lenses will deliver the angle of view they would on a 35mm camera without a conversion factor. This comes in handy especially when shooting with wide-angle lenses. For the flexibility to shoot in even the most dimly lit situations, the EOS 5D Mark II offers Canon's highest ISO sensitivity to date, ranging from 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600). Thanks to improved noise reduction technologies, images shot even at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth.

HD Video Shooting with Live View Function.
Full HD Video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution for up to 4GB per clip with HDMI output for HD viewing of stills and video.

The EOS 5D Mark II is the first digital EOS to offer recording of Full HD video in Live View Mode. Capable of shooting clips almost half an hour long at full 1080 resolution, the EOS 5D Mark II does amazing double duty, making it possible to shoot broadcast quality video on your camera by simply changing settings. The advantages move way beyond the ability to shoot on your SLR - the wealth of high-speed lenses and shooting accessories that make EOS photography so remarkable can be used in shooting video. Where interchangeable lens video cameras cost thousands of dollars, with the EOS 5D Mark II their operation, including HDMI output, is simply an added bonus to a remarkable camera.

State-of-the-Art Image Processing with Power and Speed.
Next generation DIGIC 4 Image Processor for faster processing of fine detail and color reproduction as well as reduced image noise.

The EOS 5D Mark II's sensor is backed up by Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which speeds up all operations making a number of new features possible. Processor intensive operations like Face Detection Live mode, HD video recording and lighting and lens peripheral optimization are all possible thanks to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. The EOS 5D Mark II also offers full 14-bit A/D conversion. The analog output from the image sensor is converted into a digital signal via 14-bit conversion instead of the previously used 12-bit conversion, resulting in significantly finer tonal gradation for better prints.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Developed to maximize performance between capturing and recording stages of digital photography, Canon's DIGIC 4 chips use advanced signal processing technologies to enhance captures from Canon's CMOS sensors. Sophisticated processing algorithms help to speed up all operations, including write times to UDMA cards.

Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction
Canon's exclusive Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction takes into account any light falloff in the corners of the frame and corrects it, making for a perfectly exposed image. Correction data are detected automatically on a number of Canon lenses and can be entered manually through included Canon EOS Utility software.

Cutting-Edge Autofocus.
High performance with 3.9 fps continuous shooting, new shutter with a durability of 150,000 cycles and improved weather-resistant body.

The EOS 5D Mark II has a sophisticated AF system consisting of 9 user-selectable AF points, along with a total of 6 additional vertical and horizontal AF assist points. The central AF point is cross-type, and is sensitive to vertical lines at an aperture of f/2.8, horizontal lines at f/5.6. The AF system is also sensitive to its light source, and can compensate for focus errors that can occur when multiple sources illuminate a scene. AF points can be chosen by the photographer using the 5D's multi-controller or preferred control dial. Plus, the EOS 5D features a dedicated AF ON button.

The EOS 5D Mark II has a rugged new shutter designed to withstand 150,000 exposures. Combined with its impressive build quality, this new shutter ensures that the EOS 5D Mark II will thrive in challenging shooting environments.

More Features in Live View Mode.
Live View Function for stills (Quick, Live and Face Detection AF modes) and video.

With Live View Function on the EOS 5D Mark II, you can zoom in and navigate the composition 5x or 10x normal size. There's even a grid overlay. Live View focusing modes include Quick mode, Live mode and Face Detection Live mode. The EOS 5D Mark II's Live View Function also makes videos in Full High-Definition. Shooting is at a frame rate of 30 fps. Sound is recorded either through the camera's built-in microphone or through an external microphone connected to the camera's microphone input terminal. Playback modes are available in the camera, and all Live View AF features can be used in shooting video.

Huge, High Resolution Screen.
3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) monitor with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings for improved viewing and smudge protection.

The EOS 5D Mark II has an all-new 3.0-inch Clear View LCD that features high-resolution 920,000 dots/VGA for far more detail than any previous EOS Digital LCD. A number of new features enhance usability: a new anti-reflection and water-repellant coating provides a clearer and more smudge-resistant surface and a light sensor mounted below the screen enables automatic brightness adjustment in accordance with ambient light.

Full-Frame, Dust-Free Images.
Updated EOS Integrated Cleaning System specifically designed to work with a full-frame sensor.

Canon's Integrated Cleaning system includes a cleaning unit designed specifically for the EOS 5D Mark II's full-frame CMOS sensor. The camera's low-pass filter even has a new fluorine coating upon its surface to help repel dust. Dust that makes it past the EOS 5D Mark II's sensor cleaning system is easily removed in post processing using DPP software's Dust Detection Delete function, which can remove dust spots automatically from single or multiple image files.

Self Cleaning Sensor Unit
A key element of minimizing dust is preventing it from clinging to the front surface of the imaging sensor. To combat against this, the EOS 5D Mark II features a Canon-designed Self Cleaning Sensor Unit. The low-pass filter at the front of the sensor shakes off dust automatically with ultrasonic vibrations. The EOS 5D Mark II also has a coating on the front surface of the low-pass filter to increase its resistance to dust sticking to the sensor.

Dust Delete Data Detection
Dust that may still remain on the front of the sensor can also be erased with software included in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) Version 3.3 or later software. A simple test shot of a plain, white object can be taken, using a menu setting. This Dust Delete Data image is analyzed in-camera, and the location and size of any remaining dust is subtracted from any subsequent pictures taken. This data is transmitted along with the image, whether JPEG or RAW, and can be either manually or automatically erased in Canon's DPP software. This added software option ensures the cleanest possible image, perfect for printing or archiving.

Shooting and Sharing Made Easy.
Compatible with over 60 Canon EF Lenses and most EOS System accessories.

EF Lenses
The EOS 5D Mark II is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as Aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series lenses. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses to minimize the effect of camera shake. Through Canon lenses, photographers can truly maximize the quality and liberating performance of the EOS 5D Mark II.

Flash Photography
The EOS 5D Mark II features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With any of the flashes in the EX Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in total darkness. With E-TTL II, the exact same 35-zone metering sensor used for measuring ambient light is also used for flash metering - giving even finer metering command of the image area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, there's a menu setting to change to "Average" flash metering - where the entire 35-zone area is measured evenly for flash exposure.

The Canon Speedlite 580EX II is the ideal step-up accessory for powerful flash shooting with the EOS 5D Mark II. It has excellent flash power (maximum guide number of 141 ft./43m at ISO 100), and is the perfect way to get great flash pictures when you can't get right up to the subject. The 580EX II is also great for bounce flash, with its tilting and swiveling flash head. It automatically zooms the flash head to cover lenses ranging from 16mm up to 105mm or longer with the EOS 5D Mark II. Of course, it works with the camera to provide full E-TTL II automatic flash exposure. And the 580EX II has a powerful AF-assist beam, which allows the camera to autofocus even in total darkness on subjects as far as 32 ft. from the camera.

Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E4A
This Wireless File Transmitter was made for the EOS 5D Mark II. It's compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup to connect easily to a wireless LAN access point for secure image transfer. Sending a batch of photos wirelessly is easy with the WFT-E4A as images can be stored in selected folders and the entire folder can be transferred at once. It retains the same features as the WFT-E3A including great handling for vertical shooting and wireless transmission (802.11b or g) to Macintosh or Windows computers for distances of up to 492 ft. (150m).


Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk (Version 19.1)
The EOS 5D Mark II comes bundled with an updated Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk, which features powerful software programs designed to extend the EOS experience to the computer. These include Canon's EOS Utility (Version 2.5), Digital Photo Professional (Version 3.5), ZoomBrowser EX for Windows® (Version 6.2), ImageBrowser for Macintosh® OS X (Version 6.2), the Picture Style Editor (Version 1.4), PhotoStitch (version 3.2), WFT Utility (version 3.2). Each application is designed to perfect the captured images and streamline the digital workflow.

Would have been willing to pay another 30% in price for true '1D-style' pro focus, weather-proof body, a LOT MORE control of auto-ISO and a LOT MORE control of video exposure, one more stop of noise performance, (maybe via 30% less pixels). Hoping for some firmware improvements in auto iso control, video setting control, feature additions and noise performance. Canon's WONDERFUL lenses are well worth the price and deserve a better pro-sumer body. The micro adjust focus-calibration feature is wonderful. I used to send lenses in for focus adjustment - or for one last check under warranty. But the quality on them is so good now that I no longer worry. I did not even consider sending the last two 'L' lenses for check/calibration - this was partly avoided by my ability to verify on the 50D and 1DmkIII. All but the last two (of 10) lenses were adjusted or checked by Canon. On the 1DmkIII they all were within 0-3 clicks. The new 5D2 body arrived adjusted dead-on-accurate, so all the lenses except 2 were at ZERO adjustment. So my 50D, 5D2 and 1DmkIII are no more than a FEW CLICKS variance for 10 lenses and 3 recent bodies - plus the 20D. This system works. - Great to have an affordable full frame camera - VERY nice LCD - a bit noisy shutter (maybe unavoidable by design?) - Battery has reasonable / good life - really needed a better (pro) focus system - even on a pro-sumer level camera. Needed a better spread of focus points...and more of them. - Nice to have video - it looks great. But the control NEEDS to be 'opened up' in the next firmware release. This would be received with rave reviews by the current owners and spur new sales - and even hold the street price firmer - much like the 'joystick' addition via firmware on the 1DmkIII. It needs to be possible to not have blurry-hand movements in video - due to shutter speed being set so low by the camera defaults. More control would be VERY welcome. Complete manual setting control on video (and auto ISO) would be headline news in the Canon community. - 21 megapixels is/was likely too much for this camera. Noise performance would have been a preferred CHOICE - not more pixels. - Banding begins near iso=3200 AND strange matrix-shaped-noise-interference starts near iso=200 in shadows (hoping for some improvement via firmware soon) - I have noticed no 'dots' - Auto ISO needs A LOT MORE control on parameters. - We still have loose / creaky battery doors - like the 20D. Well, I love the camera. Some of my honest comments / criticisms (also shared by MANY in my Canon user community) can be addressed in firmware. Some were price/design decisions which must remain. I think the amazing quality photographs that can be produced, for example, using the 70-200mm f4 I.S., 135mm f2, 85mm f1.2 or the 35 f1.4 lenses - cannot be challenged by any competitor. It keeps me shooting Canon. My hopes are STILL focused on a SMALL-BODY 1D-level pro camera built upon the 1D and 5D2 technologies - maybe in early 2009? I am sure I will own one.

I am a Pro Photographer, and Videographer too, that is why I mention Movie mode so many times. It was one of the main reasons why I wanted this camera, along with its High Resolution stills capability (21MP). COMMENTS (Cons before, Pros later): - My rating is not as high as it would be if the camera had full Manual settings in movie mode, as I expected when it was announced. OTHERWISE I would rate it with 4 stars. -- The most exciting feature is the most frustrating one: Full HD Movie mode is not professionally implemented. It has NOT EVEN 1 (one) manual setting possible... Everything in Movie mode is automatically set by the camera. Even when the camera's whitepaper tells it provides amazing depth of field (and that is clearly aimed to Videographers), you can HARDLY achieve it -narrow depth of field- The Only way is to workaround with tricks that not always bring what you need or want, and some are not safe, or even need another manufacturer's lens It also has no "Movie mode" direct access or Button. You have to activate LiveView and browse some menus to enable Movie mode. It has all the potential to be used Professionally, but it does NOT offer you (so far) the option to set ANYTHING manually (as professionals or serious amateurs Videographers Require). The camera can be used Professionally for stills, but really hard to use it that way for Videography work. It's a pitty and waste of potential packed inside, waiting to be delivered. -- Besides the Movie mode: Burst Rate is not very fast, AF points are not so many as we expected in this 5D "upgrade". -- Bracketing mode allows too few shots. It should (must) allow more shots. -- It has no self-mapping feature (to map hot or defective pixels). So far, almost no camera has that feature, but it's so handy and important (and would also save tech service lot of money) -- A LCD display protector can not be attached (there is no border to snap it)... nor any accesory related to it -- The resolution is VERY High, and that is GREAT. You will need Good lenses to get the results you can achieve with this camera. -- Noise level (for such high resolution) is GREAT, and not a problem (unless you need to shoot at very high ISOs) -- Canon is ALWAYS INNOVATING, I love that. And its service great too (at least my experience). They also listen to suggestions, not many companies do that. -- I like the top Mode dial a lot, easy accessible and very fast to use with just one move (and one hand) -- I like the LCD resolution and high quality too. Although I would prefer it to be 3.5" -- Good construction quality, but not "superior" quality. -- I still do not like the directional controller in EOS cameras, I would prefer much more to have it "inside" the rear dial (like some Canon PowerShot, or other brands have it) Would be faster to use, and more handy. -- CHECK well the camera when you buy it, if a hot pixel appears on Movie clips, I (if I was you) would return it and request another brand new copy. Hot pixels can not be remapped (hidden) in Movie clips. -- OVERALL is a VERY GOOD camera, at a reasonable price (if I skip the movie mode feature). --- SEVERAL features can be implemented or improved by Firmware update (Bracketing, MANUAL Settings for Movie mode, etc.). I hope Canon DO it, and soon. This camera COULD be much Greater, and a competitors "killer" (in that camera segment), it has all the potential inside...

My First Full Frame


from California, United States

Comments about Canon EOS 5D MARK II 21.1 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera With 24-105mm Lens:

This is my first full frame dslr camera. Bought it used in good condition. Stepping up from my Canon T3i and a far the low light pics I've gotten with this camera have been what I was hoping for. Great detail, color, and just excellent all-round quality...with using just a f/1.4 lens I get good full images while there's enough detail I've been able to heavily crop some of the pics and retain their quality.

Human factors, durability, the comments from all regarding my pictures. And the calling card that the equipment is. Just having the equipment is enough!


Best Camera Ever

Comments about Canon EOS 5D MARK II 21.1 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera With 24-105mm Lens:

This is one of the most versatile cameras that I have ever purchased. I have had this camera since 2010 and I am still exploring the features!





Comments about Canon EOS 5D MARK II 21.1 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera With 24-105mm Lens:

First let me say that the service was superior; I got my camera within 2 days! Also: I LOVE the features on this camera and it's ease of use. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is the fact that I haven't even had it a month and the lens quit working so I have to send it clear across the country for repairs so I'll have to go through camera withdrawals for approximately 2 weeks until I get it back. If the camera was older, I'd give it a higher rating...but it's practically brand new and already has to be sent in for a manufacture error. Other than that...It's a really GREAT camera!
