Canon EOS 5D Mk II

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

21.1 megapixel, full-frame and 1080p full motion video - Wow!

This is the camera that I use the most. I also have an EOS 5D Mark I, an EOS 10D and I started Digital SLR with the D30 when it first came out. My first SLR was an Olympus OM2 which I bought in Singapore when I worked in the Far East. I also had a complete lab and did all of my own processing. I am in the process of digitizing all of my negatives.


I have two flash units a 550ex and a 580ex ...
