Canon EOS 1D Mk III

  • Summary: The Canon EOS 1D Mk III is unrivalled in terms of burst shooting and noise performance. Handling is excellent despite that weight and you’re ably assisted by clear and simple to navigate menus: even with all those custom modes and adjustments to hand. However, the good stuff is tempered by those disappointments: the LCD and the focusing performance issues, although Canon have already started to address with the aforementioned firmware updates.
  • Pros: Great handling, high frame rate, Build, High and Low ISO image quality, Superb feature set, Good metering.
  • Cons: Accurate exposure assessment on LCD difficult, Servo AF not reliable enough, Limited exposure modes, Price, Weight.

Canon EOS-1D Mark III review

Digital Arts
30 August 2007
  • Excerpt: As one of two pro-level models in the range, the Canon EOS-1D Mark III replaces the eight megapixel Mark IIn. Unlike the similar looking 35mm full-frame version, the 1Ds Mark II, the 1D Mark III uses the company’s mid-size APS-H CMOS sensor. This precludes the use of the makers EF-S lens range designed for the 400D and 30D models but provides users with arguably the more versatile of sensors.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality and low sensor noise. Blistering 10fps continuous shooting and superb Live View and anti-dust features.
  • Cons: Some erratic AF inaccuracies and unsharpened monitor image.

  • Summary: Nach rund drei Jahren löst die 1D Mark III im Mai 2007 den Vorgänger ab. Mit 10 Bildern/Sek. ist sie nicht nur etwas schneller geworden sondern hält bis heute den DSLR-Geschwindigkeitsrekord*. Ausstattungsmässig kann die Mark III mit robustem Magnesiumsbody, Liveview und einem relativ hohen ISO-Endwert von 6.400 noch immer überzeugen. Mag auch die Auflösung von 10,1 Megapixel für eine grossformatige Ausgabe nicht mehr ganz up to date sein.

Canon EOS 1D Mark III

  • Summary: Die EOS 1D Mark III ist nicht nur eine exzellente Reportagekamera, sondern wird zunehmend zur ernsthaften Konkurrenz für Canons Topmodell EOS 1Ds Mark II. Dieses liefert zwar nach wie vor ein Maximum an Auflösung, wird in vielerlei Hinsicht aber vom rund 2000 Euro günsti­geren Schwestermodell überholt.
