Intelligent lithium-ion battery on EOS 5D Mark II While the EOS 50D continues to use the same 1390mAh BP-511A Lithium-ion battery as its predecessor, the EOS 5D Mark II utilizes a higher capacity 1800mAh lithium-ion Battery Pack LP-E6 with new capabilities. The battery can now communicate the remaining capacity in one of six levels via the battery-check icon and in 1 increments using the Battery Info menu. The number of shutter releases since the battery was last recharged is also dis-Battery...

Setting Exposure Compensation and AEB Two different grid displays are now available to aid composition in Live View mode, the newest offering a tighter grid pattern. You can also select two Silent Shooting modes The first activates the 1st curtain electronic shutter while the mechanical shutter is open (a quiet step), followed by a reduced-noise shutter cocking. In Mode 2, the shutter cocking does not occur at all until you lift your finger from the shutter button, allowing you to decide when...

Clarity

The CMOS sensors of the EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II are capable of resolving staggering levels of detail. To deliver that detail in pristine condition to the sensor, Canon's EF and EF-S lens range includes some of the world's finest optics. Built for a digital age, EF and EF-S lenses incorporate specially designed elements and Super Spectra coatings to avoid secondary sensor and lens element reflections that can otherwise cause ghosting and flare. To counter the effects of chromatic aberration...

The Surface

It is Canon's CMOS technology that gives the EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 50D their quality, speed and high ISO performance edge. Large pixel sites (4.7 pm2 on the EOS 50D and 6.4 pm2 on the EOS 5D Mark II) maximise photo diode area while minimising microlens gap, to provide exceptional dynamic range and sensitivity. Canon's CMOS refreshes quickly, for faster frame rates, and runs cooler to help reduce noise and extend battery life. And when light is fading, expanding to ISO 12,800 on the EOS 50D and...

Info

Several optical and electronic technology advancements debut in the EOS 50D's CMOS sensor. For starters, a new micro manufacturing process was used in the CMOS semiconductor production phase to increase the light-sensitive photodiode area. Above the photodiode, gapless microlenses improve the light-gathering efficiency of the smaller 4.7pm pixels and help achieve high ISO speeds (standard range from ISO 100 to 3200, with expanded 6400 or 12,800 ISO settings possible) plus lower noise images...

Performance

Battery grips. Wireless File Transmitters. Extenders. Remote Controllers. Customise each set up to suit your various styles with the world's most advanced and fully integrated system of camera accessories. With a Canon wired or wireless remote switch, you can position and focus your camera to perfection, then fire the shutter remotely. This is ideal for tripod shots taken at slow shutter speeds, where even tiny amounts of camera shake could compromise your shot....

The EOS 5D Mark II's full frame sensor has many advantages. A bigger sensor means larger pixels, improving dynamic range and signal to noise ratio for smoother gradations and sharper, cleaner images - even at high ISO speeds and long exposures. No crop factor means wide EF lenses stay wide. As well as benefiting from finer control over depth of field, photographers moving up to the EOS 5D Mark II's full frame format will find it a joy to work with the large, bright viewfinder. At the heart of...

Canon 50d Diagram

The AF system on the EOS 5D Mark II includes 9 visible AF points and six invisible assist points, for a total 15 points concentrated toward the center. The outer points on the extreme left and right are actually located at the same positions as the corresponding points in the EOS-1Ds Mark III, giving the camera a wide field for detecting moving subjects crossing the scene or improved ability to focus on off-center subjects. While only 9 AF points are visible through the viewfinder, all can be...
