Full frame
With no cropping or magnification effect, the EOS 5D's 12.8 MP full frame CMOS sensor (35.8 x 23.9mm) offers full freedom of expression. Wide lenses stay wide and the viewfinder is bright and open. Subtle tonal gradations are reproduced in shadow, midtone and highlights. A low-pass filter and on-chip circuitry suppress false colours and noise. Low (L:50) and high (H:3200) ISO settings extend the standard 100-1600 range.

3 fps
The EOS 5D can shoot a 60 large JPEG image burst at 3 fps.

Auto focus and flash
9-point AF is supported with 6 Assist AF points to improve subject tracking. AF modes include One Shot AF, AI SERVO AF and AI FOCUS AF. E-TTL II communicates with EX series Speedlites for consistently accurate flash exposures, even with reflective or off-centre subjects.

Large LCD
Illuminated by 6 LEDs, the bright 2.5" 230K pixel LCD is viewable from 85? in almost all directions.
