Canon is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its iconic EOS 5D series of cameras. Launched in 2005, the EOS 5D transformed the digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) market. It was the first advanced non-professional DSLR to incorporate a full frame CMOS sensor (35.8 x 23.9 mm).
Available at a competitive price, 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. As such, it contributed to the widespread adoption and success of full frame sensor cameras.
