Canon EOS 5D Mark II Wins Best Digital SLR in PP's 2009 Product Awards

200903we_HotOne_logo_09.jpgProfessional Photographer’s annual competition to determine the hottest products on the market has always been fierce, and its tenth installment was no different. Canon's EOS 5D Mark II, with its groundbreaking full-frame HD video capability, was the most highly anticipated camera model to be released this year, and it impressed the judges enough to secure Professional Photographer’s 2009 Hot One Award in the highly contested Digital SLR, $1,000 to $3,000, category. The Nikon D90, which was the first DSLR to feature HD video, landed a tie with Canon’s EOS Rebel XSi in the Under $1,000 slot.

Every year, Professional Photographer magazine opens the Hot One Awards competition to hundreds of professional products, from cameras and software to online services and studio gear. This year 60 photographic products and services won first place in their category. The Hot One Awards received more than 325 entries from 180 companies—the largest competition in its 10-year history.

The Canon 5d MK I ROCKS! I love mine. Great low light photography.

We have definitely been impressed with the 5D Mark II. I think it will take us a while to tap into the full potential of the camera though. We've tried doing video alongside photo with some success. A lot of the videos on Vimeo show what the camera is capable of - I just haven't reached that level yet. Still definitely worthy of a lot of the hype it's gotten.
