Canon EOS 5D Is Alive

Rumors of the EOS 5D were reaching Loch Ness Bigfoot monster proportions. But today Canon came out of the wild and announced the 12.8 megapixel full-frame DSLR. The $3,299 camera features a 35.8mm x 23.9mm CMOS sensor, which is stunning in an SLR for that price. The max burst rate is 3 frames per second at full resolution, with a capacity of 60 consecutive JPEG captures and 17 subsequent RAW images. The monitor size is increased to 2.5-inches and 230,000 pixels too. The only drawback at this point is that the 35-mm frame sensor is not compatible with EF-S lenses. Photographers will be snapping it up come October.
