  • Excerpt: It’s more about evolution and innovation (as opposed to revolution) in the digital SLR realm right now. Like the American Idol effect on singers to the untrained ear, the clarity and performance that photographers expect from the soon-to-be-legendary Canon EOS 5D Mark III has to live up to the hype.

8 January 2013
  • Conclusion: As one of the true superstar digital SLRs retailing for a medium-high starting price, the Canon 5D Mark III deserves close scrutiny, and it's lived up to our expectations. Replete with new features, the Canon 5D Mark III's most important one is its full-frame sensor, whose resolution Canon kept to a...
  • Pros: Very high resolution, Great image quality, Excellent hue accuracy, Superb high ISO performance, Real-time chromatic aberration and corner shading compensation, Exceptional prints up to 30 x 40 inches, ISO 51,200 shots produce a good 4 x 6-inch print, Wider range of bracketing options, Very respon...
  • Cons: Dynamic range not as good as competitors (deep shadow noise is rather high in raw files), Auto and Incandescent white balance are quite warm in typical indoor lighting, Default noise reduction a bit high, loses detail even at low ISOs, flattens subtle detail quite a bit at higher ISOs, Default sh...

  • Excerpt: There was a major buzz in the photography world when the D800 was announced. The excitement for Nikon’s crazy large pixel count was definitely there, but the world waited with baited breath for Canon to out-do its sole competitor once again.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review: Shooting Video

2 October 2012
  • Excerpt: We just finished this video shot solely on the Canon 5D Mark III. Originally, we were going to use the Sony EX3 or Panasonic HPX250, both which work very well in a conference setting where portability and a versatile lens are required.

  • Conclusion: Fast forward to the 2nd March 2012 and Canon announce the 5D Mk III. With 7 years of history behind this single unit the announcement came on the back of a 25th anniversary for Canon’s first camera in the EOS series, the film-based EOS 650.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

PC Magazine
26 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon EOS 5D Mark III looks a lot like its predecessor on the outside, but offers plenty of improvements under the hood. It's a solid option for advanced shooters with an investment in Canon glass, but doesn't match the rapid-fire shooting capabilities of the EOS-1D X or Nikon D4.
  • Pros: Compact for a full-frame SLR. 22-megapixel resolution. Large optical viewfinder. Bright, high-res rear LCD. Fast autofocus. 6fps continuous shooting. Excellent high ISO performance. 1080p video recording.
  • Cons: Expensive. Slow focus in Live View and Video modes. No built-in flash. Not compatible with EF-S lenses.

22 September 2012
  • Summary: The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is not only a very capable photographic tool in almost all areas, it's also fun and exciting to shoot with. Slight JPEG softness is disappointing in a camera at this level but it's only visible at pixel-level and we would expect most of the camera's target group to shoot...
  • Pros: Good resolution and detail in raw files, Good color and tonality across the ISO range, Reliable metering even in difficult contrast situations, Very responsive and snappy operation, thanks to new Digic 5+ processor, 6 frames per second continuous shooting with good buffering, Excellent build-qual...
  • Cons: Destructive noise reduction results in mushy JPEGs, even at base ISO, Visible sharpening artifacts at default settings, Heavy-handed noise reduction leads to lack of low-contrast detail at higher ISOs, Distortion correction not available 'on the fly', Built-in microphone only monaural, Soft video...
