Some important features include:

  • A full frame 18-megapixel CMOS image sensor
  • Dual DIGIC 5+ image processors
  • New Shutter with carbon fiber blades rated up to 400,000 cycles
  • Burst shooting at 12fps at full res with AF, or up to 14fps without AF (JPEG only in hi-speed mode)
  • Up to two stops lower noise than predecessors
  • Third DIGIC 4 processor handles information from new 100,000 pixel RGB Metering sensor
  • ISO settings from 100 – 51,200; expandable to Lo (50), Hi 1 (102,400) or Hi 2 (204,800)
  • Dual CF card slots
  • Built-in gigabit Ethernet
  • New 61-point AF system
  • And so much more
