Lets not get excited this is not a super duper 5D Mk111, it’s another full frame DSLR set clearly at the entry level rather than a step above the 5D series cameras which the number would have you mistakingly believe.


  • 20.2MP full frame CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 5+ image processor
  • ISO 100-25600 standard, 50-102800 expanded
  • 4.5 fps continuous shooting
  • ‘Silent’ shutter mode
  • 1080 30p video recording, stereo sound via external mic
  • 11 point AF system, center point cross-type and sensitive to -3 EV
  • 63 zone iFCL metering system

  • 1040k dot 3:2 3″ ClearView LCD (fixed)

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
