Quote: Well compared to some of the stuff I use that 5D has a hugely cropped sensor

People need to stop thinking in terms of full frame, we now live in the digital age.

I think you will be better of using a fisher price camera with your attitude.

This is exactly the attitude why I stopped using this site - I've just recently asked for my password as I had forgotten it. I'll be deleting what remains of my old pics.....Tongue

Lol and you talk about attitude Smile

Fact is the 5D is very old technology and now 7 years old, its still capable, but its now way behind even the cheapest of crop frame dslr`s.

Worst thing about the original 5D I think is its tendency to quickly gather dust onto its sensor, but still there's a reason the 5D costs a few hundred quid second-hand—while other cameras of similar vintage are effectively now high-tech doorstops.

The files the 5D produces are outrageously clean at low ISOs if you eyeball them at pixel level on a monitor, to an extent you won't see in a crop-sensor, high-res, modern day equivalent—but that's a pixel-peeping evaluation. You'd see similar files in the old 1D MK II as well, since it shared exactly the same pixel density. The smaller files are well-liked by some folk because they're good for most purposes without taking up much storage space or forcing you to throw football-pitch sized pics around on your monitor.

The advantage in dynamic range, which the 5D held strongly over first-generation DSLRs, is diminished when compared to modern crop-sensor cameras. A comparison on DxO Mark indicates that the 5D still holds its own, even though the marking system is a little arbitrary.

The 5D is ancient in other respects - focusing technology notably, although the same technology didn't prevent the 5D MK II from being a hit. Perhaps the best reason to buy the 5D over an entry-level DSLR is simply the 'look' of the pictures it'll give you for relatively little money. If you like the shallow depth of field effect and 'creamy' looking, manageably sized image files, that's a reason to choose the 5D over a modern crop-sensor camera.

Thanks every body for all your help and especially to GlennH with a nicely presented Post on the 5D mk1
Not forgetting Paul Morgan for supplying the amusement.
BTW I think it must be a stunning camera going by the images they produce.

ok lets cut the ***** about image quality here, you can have a $10,000 camera with a 50MP sensor and you'll STILL get crap images if you use a shaky tripod or shoot at .5 secs handheld, my point being there is a lot more to a good image than a decent camera.

Dado just by the damn camera will you, it's wonderful Grin
