If you are a wedding photographer or anyone who loves to take pictures at low light without using a flash to create any mood for your photos, you’re going to love this digital camera as it performs well using higher ISO. I’ve seen how this camera delivered great pictures and videos. This can be a bit pricey, but with a viewing screen that’s as clear and sharp as you can imagine, with perfect pictures that it can deliver, plus the ease of operation and speed, it is well worth the price.
There are a few things though that’s worth considering as well before purchasing 5D Mark II, it is heavy. It is not something you would want to carry around if you will be out for a nice tour. And I have seen reviews how the video can be awfully not user friendly since you can’t use the viewfinder while shooting. So imagine yourself focusing manually using the viewing screen. But, this digital camera is capable of shooting HD video.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital Camera is well recommended to someone who’s taking one step up with their photography but afraid to spend too much on a good digital camera.
