What does status light 5d mean


The letter D was/is Canon's designator for "Digital" and they started using that designator in the late 1990s. For many years, Canon also manufactured 35mm film SLRs and for over a decade from 1998 through 2008, they manufactured both 35mm film SLRs and digital SLRs. The D was means as a designator that set the digital cameras apart from the 35mm film SLR cameras. The same applies to Nikon who instead chose to simply replace their F and N designators for the 35mm SLRs with the letter D for digital SLRs.

As for the numbers, those denote specific models. Within the Canon system, cameras with three or four digit model numbers followed by the letter D (i.e. 1000D or 550D) are entry-level, consumer-grade products with plastic bodies, using SD cards for storage with burst rates of 4 frames per second or less. The most basic of these cameras is known as the Rebel XS in the US but, called the EOS 1000D in most of the rest of the world (The Japanese domestic market calls it the Kiss F). The most recent model in this line is the Rebel T2i or EOS 550D. These models cost between $450 and $900.

The next step up in cost, complexity and performance are the high-end consumer or "prosumer" grade cameras that feature magnesium allow bodies, faster burst rates exceeding 4 frames per second, and better weather seals. These cameras have in the past, been designated with two digit model numbers followed by the letter D (i.e. 20D, 30D, etc). The most recent model in the line is known as the EOS 50D throughout the world. The 50D is nearing discontinuation or replacement so its price has fallen but, these models usually cost around $1200

Canon's premium (not necessarily professional) cameras have, sense the advent of the EOS line, traditionally had single digit model numbers. These included the EOS 5 and EOS 3 35mm SLRs and today includes the EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D models. These cameras build on the XXD series with better build quality, the lack of scene modes on the mode dials, and since the 7D, better autofocus and weather seals. They are not quite up to the standards of the full-blown professional bodies but, they are very close and often used by professionals as backup cameras or the primary cameras of those on tight budgets. Prices for these models range from $1600 for the 7D to $2500 for the 5D Mark II.

Finally, there are the "professional" models. These camera's are the only cameras that get a single digit "1" model number such as the 1D Mark IV and 1Ds Mark III models. The "mark" number indicates the generation or version of the camera...The 1D Mark IV is the forth version of the 1D and the 1D Mark III is the third version of the 1Ds but, we expect a 1Ds Mark IV some time this year. Today's 1D and 1Ds are Canon's fastest and best built cameras. They don't have any special scene modes but, they can be heavily customized to fit the needs of the individual photographer. These are also the most expensive cameras Canon makes with prices starting around $5000.

I got new Sigma 18-200 DC II lens, with Canon EOS 5D Mark II it has black lens frame is visible through viewfinder or on the photo. Does it mean this lens is not compatible with 5DmrkII?


The EOS 50d Mark II is what's known as a "full-frame" camera. Its image sensor is the same size as a frame of 35mm film. The Sigma DC lens is intended for cameras with smaller sensors. The lens is compatible in that it will work with the camera to take pictures, but the pictures are cropped due to the smaller imaging area of the lens.

In order to use the full image sensor area you need to use full-frame lenses. In the case of Sigma, this means lenses without the DC designation.

Error 99 on screen cant take picture intermitant


Error 99 is known as Abnormal Mirror operation. Follow the link for help;EOS-1D Mark III/EOS-1Ds Mark III: AF Accuracy Adjustment
EOS-1D Mark III/EOS-1Ds Mark III: Abnormal Mirror Operation (Err 99)

It should be noted that the AF accuracy adjustment advisory is in addition to the previous EOS-1D Mark III AF mirror adjustment service notice. Free repairs are being offered for customers affected by the "Err 99" mirror problem, and Canon is also providing free AF accuracy checks and adjustments for customers experiencing problems with soft focus when using any but the central AF point.

Finally, Canon Japan has published a new manual entitled "EOS-1D Mark III AI Servo Auto Focus Manual" aimed at helping owners understand and get the most from their AF system.
