Product description

Product Description

The Power to Create.
Canon is proud to present the highly anticipated EOS 5D Mark III. With supercharged EOS performance and stunning full frame, high-resolution image capture, the EOS 5D Mark III is designed to perform. Special optical technologies like the 61-Point High Density Reticular AF and an extended ISO range of 100–25600, 51200 and 102400 make the EOS 5D Mark III ideal for shooting weddings in the studio or out in the field, and great for still photography. Advanced professional-level high definition video capabilities make it possible to capture beautiful cinematic movies in EOS HD quality. A newly designed 22.3 Megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, Canon DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, and shooting performance up to 6.0 fps provide exceptional clarity and sharpness, even when capturing rapidly-unfolding scenes. Additional technological advancements include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system, High Dynamic Range, and Multiple Exposure mode-all of which that help make the EOS 5D Mark III the perfect multimedia tool.

In response to user requests, Canon has released a firmware update that expands the versatility and functionality of the EOS 5D Mark III. This update enables the camera to export clean, uncompressed HDMI output to an external recorder, while still being able to record to internal CF or SD cards and monitor the video on the rear LCD display. In addition, this update improves autofocus performance by allowing cross-type support at f/8.

Owning the excellent 5D MkII, made me more than curious to find out what improvements had been made in the MkIII.

I know a lot of people were initially disappointed that it did not have the headline grabbing specifications of the Nikon D800 but on closer inspection the changes are all that we really required.

In particular the AF system has been improved out of all recognition but then let's face it you could not get worse than 9 points with just one cross type point. The new system locks focus instantly even in the dimmest of light and it tracks objects as they move across the screen flawlessly. You can also set up different focus set ups for portrait and landscape just as you can in the 7D - that is very useful.

Other worthwhile improvements come in the speed that the camera achieves. Although I never found the MkII sluggish, the MkIII just feels snappier. I'm not a machine gun shooter so the increased frame rate is not important but the speed it writes to the card is. The DIGIC 5+ processor really is faster than the old DIGIC 4 it replaced just as Canon claim.

The addition of a second card slot is a great benefit. Although I have never had a card fail, I know plenty who have so the ability to record to two cards is good insurance.

The ability to shoot at even higher ISO speeds than with the MkII and still get clean results is a huge bonus to those like me who prefer natural light to flash.

There are also other subtle improvements like the lock on the mode dial, the quick menu button, a larger viewing screen which matches the normal format, 100% viewfinder and the start stop button for video.

Put these things together and they make the upgrade worthwhile.

This camera was bought for my birthday this year. As I always wanted a DSLR I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd get this beauty. My husband bought a sigma art lens for me to do my portrait work. I have to say this is a very complex camera for a beginner. But if you buy a book on this camera it will guide you through everything you need to know. I am simply loving the quality of the photos I'm taking. I'm still learning. And I will be updating as time goes by so you can see how much this camera has taught me. Photos to follow.

I have gone from a 5D to a 5D Mk II to the Mk III over a number of years and have also used a 1D2 and 1DS2

Am I pleased with the latest version - undoubtably yes ! It is a worthy successor to the Mk II but not the giant leap that camera was from the original 5D.

Aimed at keen amateurs or pro's it is full frame with a bright viewfinder. I bought it for use at weddings with my wife who is a professional and I assist. I also have a 7D but this camera is like a full frame 7D but with better focus. The ability to change between focus points easily and select different points when using landscape or portrait is really handy.

The focus seems quicker and more accurate than the Mk II ... though unlike others I never really had an issue with it. The drive is noticeable quicker and much more useful - the Mk II was just too slow for any action. This is far more like it.

Build is better than the Mk II but not by the degree many reviewers seem to indicate. You wouldn't wish for more though.

Noise levels - I have just taken 700 pictures for a wedding in low 'ish light and noise is about 1-1/2 stops better than the Mk II ... it makes everything easier as the sensor is, well, more sensitive. I shoot in RAW not Jpeg so can't comment on that. You can go far higher on the ISO before noise ruins the picture but after noise reduction in, say, Lightroom the images are, as I say, 1-1/2 stops effectively better. I shot the whole wedding at 3200 ISO but some were at 6400 and they were still fine - something the 5D II would struggle with.

I used the camera with a PixelPro handgrip which though seemingly well made broke on it's outing - so the dear Canon one is now ordered.

Kind of a silly review really - only because who wouldn't love the Canon EOS 5D Mark III : ) Love this camera - so glad I bought it.

By Dr. Paul Ell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Aug. 2013
This is an exceptional camera following in the lineage of the previous two iterations of the model, each with subsequent models markedly improving on the earlier. This should not be underestimated as certainly the the MKII was an excellent camera too.

Particular highlights of the camera I've found are, of course, its full frame CMOS which results in excellent performance in low light conditions with high ISO ratings resulting in very good photographs indeed with minimal noise. Fast shooting is a notable improvement over the previous model with at least 6 frames per second sustained for a remarkably long period. I thought the build quality of the MK2 was very good and if anything this camera exceeds that. There seems to have been a gradual evolution of the position of the camera function buttons, or maybe I'm getting used to Canon's way of thinking, because now its second nature quickly and easily actioning the function I want without needing to look at the camera for an overlong period. All this helps in quickly taking the photos you want to take without missing a moment.

HD video is of such quality I can see why stand-alone video cameras are becoming redundant. On my large-screen TV playback quality it brilliant. The only minor issue is that the camera is not as well suited in form to a bespoke video camera - it just feels slightly clumsy using it for video. However, I'm not into videoing big time so this isn't really a problem for me.

There are to additions I'd advise other buyers to consider. First, the camera needs a good lens and whilst after paying this much for a camera it might be tempting to go for a cheap(ish) 30 to 80 zoom it really it worth buying a lens which matches the quality of the camera.
