Canon EOS 5D 10 Year Anniversary : EOS 5D

Canon today celebrates the 10th anniversary of its iconic EOS 5D series.

Originally launched in September 2005, the EOS 5D was the first advanced amateur DSLR to incorporate a full frame CMOS sensor (35.8 x 23.9 mm).  The camera enabled enthusiast photographers to utilise the camera’s impressive image quality and creative photographic tools that traditionally had been unique to professional DSLRs with 35mm sensors, contributing to the widespread adoption and success of the full frame sensor cameras.

In November 2008, Canon launched the second generation model in the series – the EOS 5D Mark II, which paved the way for movie making. The camera revolutionised Full HD video capture for photographers, and facilitated the widespread adoption of DSLRs as a tool for capturing movies. Coupled with exceptional image quality and greater control over depth of field, it also allowed filmmakers to take advantage of Canon’s diverse interchangeable EF lens line-up spanning over 64 models at the time, enabling a wide spectrum of imaging possibilities.

In March 2012, Canon introduced the EOS 5D Mark III, which boasted significant improvements over its predecessors still and video capabilities, as well as enhanced AF precision and a faster maximum continuous shooting speed. Since its launch, the EOS 5D Mark III has garnered high acclaim in the market and, as one of the company’s flagship DSLRs, has come to serve as a driving force for the continued  innovation of the EOS series.

Breaking the boundaries of 35mm sensors, the new cameras offer the highest megapixels ever seen in a full frame sensor, an astonishing 50.6 MP.
