After reading literally hundreds of reviews from follow pros over the past few weeks I have to admit I had a difficult choice between Fuji Film’s latest S5 Pro and Canon’s 5D. But, with so many wedding photographers raving about the 5D it quickly became clear that this camera was a winner! Fuji’s newest is not the full frame that I truly wanted and it is still so new to the market that I was simply afraid to be one of the first to grab it. I have jumped on that band waggon before only to be one of the many to end of complaining about the many negative features that became painfully obvious within the first few weeks of use. I have to admit though that it’s specs were pretty impressive.

The 5D will give me the full-frame that I’ve been yearning for because as an old film shooter I truly miss the TRUE 35mm format. I also miss not being able to use a fish-eye lens and being able to see the full crop in my view finder! Also, the 5D is one of only 2 cameras from Canon that I have read reviews comparing it’s quality to that of medium format. Now there is where the WOW FACTOR comes in. The camera also truly shines in low light photography. This will come in especially handy during evening wedding receptions and when I just want to do something with a bit of drama in my studio. After downloading a few full-size sample images I was totally blown away by this camera. I just placed my order for the body, battery pack attachment and extra rechargable battery. I also ordered the newest 4 GIG extreme III memory cards to complete the new outfit. I can hardly wait to get my hands on everything. I promise to post some images as soon as I get my new baby! -CK
