    The highly anticipated first look at the 5D’s high-def capabilities has leaked onto YouTube. Fortunately for Canon, and not so much for us, the video isn’t the HD version, but rather a crappy camera phone capture of the $4,200 commercial playing on a laptop. Even still, you can tell through the 21-second preview that this Laforet’s project is going to be hot. Expect more to… Read More

    The Canon 5D Mark II was held back by the marketing department

    Per a Canon employee talking to Tech Digest, the engineers behind the 5D Mark II were held back by the megapixel race instead of focusing on the sensor. The chaps in marketing reportedly wanted to beat out Nikon’s latest DSLR flagship (rumors says it’s coming tomorrow 9/18 btw) and us consumers are apparently dumb, paying attention just to the mighty megapixel.  Read More
