Canon 5D 12.8
MegaPixel Full-Frame Infrared-Enabled Camera
DISCONTINUED. This has been replaced by the Canon
5D MK II
XNiteCanon5DHR Visible Hot Rod
The Canon 5D is a semi-professional digital SLR camera. Because of the nature of the IR enabling
modification, we do not recommend this camera to anyone who does not fully
understand the implications of the modification.
We stock and can modify this camera to be IR+Visible, IR-Only
or Visible Hot Rod. An
IR+Visible camera will see both Infrared and Visible light after
modification. An IR-Only camera will only see IR from 715nm through
1200nm. The IR-Only camera has an internal 715nm IR filter with an
antiflection coating. The 715nm filter performs similarly to the Hoya RM72
and Wratten 89B.
Our IR-Only cameras include an adjustment to the Auto Focus so
that the camera focuses in the infrared region. This means you can use
whatever lens you prefer without worry about shooting a F8 or higher to get
proper focus. However, since the AF will be focusing in the infrared, the
visible focus will be slightly off. to the user looking through the lens.
A Visible Hot-Rod camera will maximize the resolution and
color depth of the camera at the expense of possible moire pattens. Please
see more about this conversion here.
The Canon 5D has a full-frame sensor that allows the
photoreceptors to gather more photons than the smaller sensors in other
cameras. Because of this, the 5D has exception infrared and ultraviolet
performance. If you need to gather has much light as possible, we
recommend the 5D.

full-frame CMOS Sensor.
World's smallest and lightest full-frame digital
SLR* with a 12.8 Megapixel CMOS Sensor and superb image quality.
The EOS 5D's full-frame CMOS sensor records 4,368 x 2,912 pixels-that's
12.8 Megapixels, larger than many other companies' top-of-the-line
sensors. The same size as a 35mm image on a traditional camera, the sensor
operates without a conversion factor. This is perfect for taking advantage
of the spectacular optics in Canon's L-series, and will be a joy for
wide-angle enthusiasts who can make the most of their wide-angle lenses.
This new CMOS sensor, designed in-house by Canon, provides smooth,
high-resolution images similar to the EOS-1Ds Mark II but in a more
compact body. Two automatic noise reduction features maximize the
effectiveness of the EOS 5D's on-chip noise reduction. Noise reduction can
be activated when noise is detected or it will simply come into play on
any exposure of 1 second or longer.

performance and image quality.
DIGIC II Image Processor for outstanding image
quality and performance - 3.0 fps for up to 60 consecutive JPEG or 17 RAW
frames in a burst.
The EOS 5D's new 12.8 Megapixel sensor is driven by the revolutionary
DIGIC II Image Processor for unprecedented performance and image quality.
Thanks to the DIGIC II Image Processor, the EOS 5D is capable of shooting
up to 3 frames-per-second for up to 60 JPEG or 17 RAW images. The
information captured by the sensor is processed and assembled into images
of exceptional clarity and resolution. Photographers can expect precise,
natural colors, spot-on white balance and speed in any number of lighting
situations. By handling larger volumes of image data, the DIGIC II Image
Processor also contributes to lower power consumption: photographers will
discover that they can shoot all day with the EOS 5D without having to
change the battery!
view from almost any angle on a bigger LCD screen.
New larger 2.5 inch LCD screen can be viewed even
at extreme angles up to 170?.
The EOS 5D has been designed to provide the photographer with instant
feedback, saving valuable time when reviewing images. A new 2.5 inch LCD
screen with approximately 230,000 pixels not only displays more
information, it can be viewed at a far greater angle (170?) than many
other conventional LCD screens. The full-featured shot information screen
not only provides an RGB histogram, it displays the AF frames used.
Magnification to check exposure and critical focus has never been faster.
It is also simple to jump quickly in image intervals up to 100. Menus are
accessed at the touch of a button, and feature larger, easier to read text
than previous models. Whether changing color parameters, setting up custom
functions, organizing folders, setting white balance, or any other
feature, the new screen is designed with the professional in mind.
Photographers get to their information quickly, so they never lose a shot.
New "Picture Style" function for
superior command of in-camera color, contrast and sharpness.
"Picture Style" settings simulate the characteristics of
different film styles, including Snapshot mode, for punchy,
print-from-the-camera color, Portrait mode, for softer, more natural skin
tones; Landscape, for vivid blues and greens and overall sharpness, plus
Neutral, Faithful and Monochrome, which can be customized to emulate color
filters with black and white film.
|Advanced 9-point AF
High-precision 9-point AF with 6 additional
Supplemental points surrounding the center point for superior focus
In addition to 9 different AF points for locking focus on subjects,
even if they are not in the center of the composition, the EOS 5D features
6 Supplemental points around the center AF point which help to ensure an
even greater degree of focus accuracy when tracking a moving subject. This
feature is significant for sports photographers, as well as anyone who
needs to keep focus locked on an unpredictable subject. The Supplemental
AF points are not displayed in the viewfinder, and they cannot be manually
selected. However, they are used in AI Servo AF mode when the EOS 5D is
set for automatic focusing point selection, and also when the center
focusing point is selected together with Custom Function 17-1.
The EOS 5D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup (except EF-S
lenses), ranging from 14mm Ultra-Wide to 600mm Super Telephoto lenses. The EF
lineup employs advanced optical know-how and sub-micron precision engineering to
deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process.
Aspherical optics and Fluorite elements, for example, are featured in the
universally acclaimed L-series Lenses while Canon's Image Stabilization feature
minimizes the effect of camera shake.
The EOS 5D features Canon's E-TTL II flash metering system introduced with the
EOS-1D Mark II. E-TTL II provides consistently accurate flash exposure from shot
to shot. Canon's Speedlite 580EX and 430EX are perfectly suited to the EOS 5D.
They include an AF-assist Beam, which works in conjunction with the EOS 5D's
focusing system, and automatically sends color temperature information to the
camera when the flash fires, for more accurate color rendition with flash
In addition to Canon's EF lenses and EX Speedlites, several other accessories
are designed to work specifically with the EOS 5D. The Battery Grip BG-E4 adds a
vertical shutter release, and is compatible with up to two of Canon's
Lithium-ion battery packs, or alternatively a set of six AA-size batteries, for
increased shooting capacity and greater convenience when traveling.
Data Verification Kit DVK-E2
Canon's Data Verification DVK-E2 is an option for the EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1D
Mark II N, EOS 5D and EOS 20D. Like its predecessor, this kit can verify whether
or not a photo is an untouched original. Its use of a Secure Mobile (SM) card
reader, instead of an IC card reader, makes it more compact and affordable than
the previous version.
Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1A
This accessory allows photographers to transmit images from their cameras
directly to a computer over a local area network (LAN). It is compatible with
the EOS-1Ds Mark II, 1D Mark II
