  • Conclusion: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III digital SLR camera Canon started from scratch with the Mark III. And that is obvious with the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III. It is much more than a Mark II with a new image sensor. There has been thorough thought about the whole camera and the entire structure has been altered without making the photographer used to working with a Canon EOS-1 lose his way. A huge achievement and it shows what the Canon design department is capable of.

DP Review
16 October 2008
  • Conclusion: First an apology; the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III arrived in our office well over eight months ago (when we were 'between studios') and, though we've been using it regularly every since, the avalanche of digital SLRs that arrived in January caused this review to be bumped down the queue so often that it started to develop a persecution complex.
  • Pros: Significant upgrade to the Mark II that improves almost every area of performance without 'reinventing the wheel', Better ISO button placement, new joystick, new AF point selection method, ISO in the viewfinder; all help faster more intuitive operation and mean you less often have to take your eye away from the viewfinder., Superb resolution and pixel level detail, noticeably better than the Mark II (especially in JPEG) - simply stunning output when used at low ISOs w...
  • Cons: Edge softness / chromatic aberrations with wide angle lenses, needs good glass, Overall softness that means images need more sharpening than you might expect; we'd prefer an even lighter Low Pass Filter., No autofocus of any kind in live view mode, No built-in wireless flash (needs ST-E2 transmitter), Mirror up implementation still far from ideal, Higher resolution screen would be nice, As would the ability to select any of the AF points, not just the 19 'primary' poi...

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III Review

What Digital Camera
3 March 2008
  • Summary: Canon has done it again with the 1Ds Mk III and I expect that studios across the globe will be ordering them as a matter of course, just for the high resolution. In use it’s a workhorse, and what it lacks in grace and beauty is made up for with its strength and results and what results! The image quality achievable from the 1Ds Mk III, when coupled with excellent optics, is, quite frankly, awesome. One notable example of this is the exceptional sharpness that?
  • Pros: High resolution, full frame, low noise, solid build, speed of AF
  • Cons: Manual focus live view, low-res LCD, artisan design

A professional D-SLR digital camera for those who require speed and excellent low-light performance.

Good Gear Guide.au
28 September 2008
  • Summary: Canon's flagship full-frame digital SLR camera will capture huge images with its 21.1-megapixel sensor, and it will do a stellar job in low-light conditions. It's a professional camera that will capture crystal-clear pictures when paired with the right lens, and it is a huge step up from the EOS 1Ds Mark II.
  • Pros: Excellent low-light performance, huge resolution, dual memory slot types (CF and SD), built-in dust reduction
  • Cons: Manual aperture control is not intuitive, autofocusing results did not show during Live View mode

Canon EOS 1Ds MkIII vs. Nikon D3

ePHOTOzine
19 March 2008
  • Summary: Being such radically different price brackets throws difficulty on the decision. The Canon is easier to use, their's no way of changing that fact. The buttons are not as difficult to use and the menu is simpler to understand. The Canon also wins on colour rendition with the Greyhound shot and the resolution helps with cropping.
  • Pros: High resolution, Dual processors for speedy downloads, Easier usability, Bright screen, New processor is excellent, High ISO performance
  • Cons: Dull screen, More expensive, ISO100 is an equivalent, Lost true colours on race track

Canon EOS 1Ds MkIII DSLR Review

ePHOTOzine
13 March 2008
  • Summary: It's difficult to know what to say about such a camera. The power beneath your fingers is obvious and my only real complaint is that the screen is not as bright as others. When I first started using it, I thought I was underexposing, but later looking at the images on the computer, I discovered I wasn't.
  • Pros: Full frame, High resolution, Dual processors, New layout works better, Excellent ISO results, Not as heavy as MkII
  • Cons: Pricey, Massive memory requirements, Screen not as bright as expected

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Ja, ik weet dat Nikon ondertussen wat betreft ruis heel dicht, zo niet voorbij, de EOS-1Ds Mark III is gekomen en dat er binnenkort een camera met nog meer pixels op full-frame op de markt komt. Het zijn allemaal uitdagingen voor Canon om de 1Ds nog verder te verbeteren en we mogen blij zijn dat er wat tegengas komt. Anders zou het Canon te gemakkelijk worden gemaakt en wordt hen de uitdaging ontnomen wat een slechte zaak zou zijn voor de consument.

Canon EOS-1Ds MARK III

Absolut Photo
17 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Il était particulièrement attendu : avec sa définition record pour un reflex 24x36, le Canon 1ds mark III avait été annoncé comme un possible concurrent au Moyen-Format numérique. La qualité d’image du 1d mark III laissait entrevoir un bel appareil et la concurrence du Nikon D3 pose comme une nécessité la qualité pour ce reflex professionnel.
  • Pros: Nombre record de pixels, Construction, Qualité d'image
  • Cons: Qualité d'image un peu en retrait dans les très hautes sensibilités, Prix
