    Title pretty much says it all :D

    Just was interested in who else had this camera and how they find it? I am trying to get used to it and wondered if anyone had any hints, tips or advice on how to get some interesting results with this camera :)

    It's a fairly popular camera with professionals and advanced amateurs. For a long while, it was the only DSLR with a full frame sensor that cost less than $7000...which is why it was so popular.

    It is (or was) renowned for great image quality with low noise levels...especially at higher ISO settings, compared to other digital cameras.

    This isn't the right question to ask when talking about the specific model/brand of a camera. In the big scheme of things, there really isn't much that you can or can not do with this camera, than you cannot do with any other DSLR. Just like any other camera, it's a tool...and it's up to the photographer to use it. So rather than ask about tips for the 5D...ask about the type of photography that you want to shoot.

    What camera did you have prior to the 5D? How long have you had the 5D?
