1.0 out of 5 stars Small step from Mark II, 24 Dec. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS 5D Mark III - digital cameras (Auto, Cloudy, Custom modes, Daylight, Flash, Fluorescent L, Shade, Tungsten, Movie, Single image, Slide show, Electrical, Battery, SLR Camera Kit, TTL) (Electronics)
Im bit disapointed. This item lacks autofocus in video mode:(( I thought that it will be there (even my old mobile have it!!(all promos screems continues autofocusing).. Most of tutorials online reviews its ISO comparison with D800. But i quess everyone tryes to shoot in the lowest ISO as posibile, so that factor is ok in other brands. And plus there is another option to increase the light (like aperature, shutter speed) extra (cheep light source) and etc. I thought i will use maximum of this cam, thought to shoot some video blogs, so that cammera could focus on my face while ill talk, without worring that ill get out of focus. But:(((( There is some reviews "i don't need this" "thats not an proffesional and bla bla" i quess who writes this don't have any clue how this future would improve their shooting and workflow. Especialy while shooting someone on the move. New update just released but again no continues autofocus in video mode:(((( I would recomend to think about Nikon cammeras twice, before buying this cam. Nikon is standing in front by measuring the futures-changes it brought to the table.

You must either be a troll, or a Nikon fanboy. Either way, you're not obliged to buy Canon's products. Go spend your money on inferior Nikon cameras ... and don't even bother to write "reviews" on Canon DSLRs, since no serious guy would care to look at it.

The reason that there is no autofocus in video mode is that in this mode the camera lens would "hunt" for the correct sharpness, therefore spoiling the video. Canon assumed that this camera would be for serious photographers and therefore decided against it. It should not be a problem as manual focus is actually quite easy with a little practice. I know, as I now use only manual focus myself. Therefore your one star rating is unfair.

If that was a feature you wanted in a camera you should have researched and bought with an informed opinion. Had you looked around you would have seen the 5D Mark III wasn't the camera for you, saved yourself a bunch of money, and saved all of us from reading your pointless 'review'.

If you are happy with the sound of the lens motor present on your recordings and the slow focusing, then go ahead and buy another Canon SLR. However if you want professional results and use manual focus the 5D mk3 is the best quality option. PS improve your spelling!
