Still a great full-frame camera, the 5D II has a 21-megapixel image captured at 14 bits,at ISO ranging from 50 to 25,600. (our take is that ISO 3200 is very usable but anything higher is for emergencies only.) The rear display is a 3-inch, 920,000 pixel LCD with 170 degree viewing angle. It also has a sealed magnesium body and an integrated cleaning system.
Burst capability is 3.9 frames per second, but it can continue that for up to 13 RAW images or 78 JPEGs. It can record movies in 1080p HD (1920×1080) for up to 12 minute clips (the camera will record until it hits a 4 Gb file size). A battery (at room temperature) will last about 80 minutes shooting 1080p video.
I’ve shot with this camera for years and it’s still an excellent choice. It is good at ISO 1600 and acceptable at ISO 3200. ISO 6400 is usable for web images or small prints. Image quality is excellent. Autofocus is acceptable, too, although it’s not as accurate as the 5D Mk III, especially in low light or with moving subjects. Still for 90% of what I shoot, the 5DII gives me everything I need at what is now a very good price.
While it was THE camera for SLR movie making for years, time has passed it by a bit. For video work, the capabilities of the 5D III provide things that really can make a huge difference. Even then, the good old Mk II can still provide great footage if you stay within it’s capabilities.
