Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

The EOS 5D Mark II is very popular with serious amateurs and professional wedding and portrait photographers because it offers nearly unbeatable image quality for a lot less cash than Canon’s top-end EOS-1D cameras. It was the very first digital SLR to offer full HD video and arguably the camera that really started the HD DSLR revolution. The 21-megapixel full-frame sensor delivers top-shelf image quality in all lighting conditions making the 5D Mk II one of the best Canon DSLRs for landscape, wedding, portrait and event photographers.
