Canon EOS 5D Mark III - The dream run continues
The third generation of the ever-popular EOS 5D series is another huge leap forward from Canon. The 5D Mark III features a re-vamped full frame image sensor, now with a resolution of 22.3 megapixels and even better low-light performance and image quality than its predecessor. This camera range has proven to be a hit with enthusiasts and beginners alike, resulting in a legacy that is sure to remain for years to come.
Noiseless images in the dark
ISO sensitivity ranges from a brilliant 100-25600 leaving you with a body well suited to handling the whole gamut of lighting situations, from dawn to dusk this camera will produce stunning noise free images. This is made possible due to the aforementioned full-frame CMOS sensor and Canon’s high performance Digic 5+ processor.
6 Fps - Ready for the action
Speed is the name of the game for many a photographer. If it is action you want, the 5D Mark III is prepared to give it to you with continuous shooting speeds of up to 6.0 frames per second. From sports, to wildlife the 5D Mark III will never disappoint with sluggish performance. There would be no point having a fast frame rate if the camera couldn’t focus fast enough and thanks to a high-density 61 point AF system, this is not an issue for the 5D Mark III. Tracking focus is extremely effective and accurate and for us low-light photography buffs, the camera can focus in the dimmest of situations with no searching.
Full HD video
Recent Canon DSLR’s have been purveyors of High-Performance Video, and the 5D Mark III is simply one of the best. Offering Full HD resolution at 30 frames per second, the 5D Mark III produces footage previously thought impossible from a camera aimed at the stills market. Audio captured in camera is very, very good, but thanks to a microphone input this can be further improved upon through the use of an external microphone of your choice. The 5D Mark III is a the next step in the line of DSLR’s perfectly walking the balance between still photography and video, a photojournalists dream come true.
Rugged construction - Ready for the elements
Sometimes you can be caught out in the most treacherous of conditions when the need to photograph strikes you. The 5D Mark III is ruggedly constructed using strong magnesium alloy allowing it to be used confidently in the most demanding environments. The body is dust and water resistant and thanks the self-cleaning sensor, you don’t have to deal with excess dust accumulation ruining shots that you will never be so lucky to shoot again.
Above all, exceptional image quality
From an image-quality standpoint the 5D Mark III affords highly detailed images with a great dynamic range; there isn’t a photographic use that this camera isn’t suited to.
For artistic purposes there are built-in HDR and multiple exposure modes allowing you to experiment with your camera and the scene in front of you, providing you with extra tools to express yourself and produce timeless images far beyond your expectations.
