Second-hand market activity for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II is expected to intensify after Canon quietly announced that the popular digital SLR had been discontinued.
Just weeks after its release in November 2008, the 5D Mark II became one of Canon's flagship cameras with filmmakers using the DSLR to film scenes in popular movies and television shows.
The camera also revolutionised the photography market, allowing numerous photographers to experiment with video. It led to an explosion in the number of multimedia productions and organisations such as World Press Photo and the World Photography Organisation to launch multiple multimedia awards.
Earlier this year, Canon released a minor update to the camera, with the 5D Mark III sporting more advanced video and audio controls.
Other discontinued Canon products include cameras such as the EOS 1D Mark IV and EOS 1Ds Mark III.
