The benefit of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera over it's competitors in its category is how lightweight it is, perfect for those who want to take high-quality photos without lugging around a hefty camera. The camera's features also make it ideal for shooting video. You can record full 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second, as well as 720p and standard definition video.
When it comes to shooting more than one type of photo, the Canon 5D Mark II is the best with three personalized programmable Total Recall positions settings that can be activated with a turn of the dial. Every setting in the camera can be programmed to how you wish to have your camera set, from color, brightness, sharpness, saturation, auto focus, exposure modes, white balancing, resolution and everything else can be programmed to one of C1, C2 or C3 recall positions. This is like having 3 cameras in one but only having to carry the one. It makes photography on any given day a breeze. Shooting landscape shots and switching to desired portrait settings with a turn of the dial without having taken your eyes off the perfect shot.
