  • 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...

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

  • 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.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review

Digital Photography School

  • Excerpt: You’ve seen this camera’s predecessors, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and 7D and Nikon’s D90, everywhere or, least you’ve seen their product on TV or at the movies. What made many industry players sit up and look closely was the use of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II to shoot the finale of the series House,...

Canon DSLR EOS 5D Mark III

  • Excerpt: Having just looked at a small DSLR unit, this is a bigger one with a large lens, certainly not something to fit in a pocket and definitely something to attach the neck strap to unless of course you are into a tough fitness regime when it may not seem heavy.

  • Conclusion: 5D owners may well have felt that the MkII didn't really do enough to grab their attention because it didn't address enough of its older sibling's deficiencies. The increased resolution was attractive, but again not enough on its own.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

11 July 2013
  • Conclusion: A Canon EOS 5D Mark III parece muito com sua predecessora por fora, mas oferece muitos melhoramentos sob o capô. É uma opção sólida para fotógrafos avançados com um investimento em lentes Canon, mas não rivaliza com as capacidades de disparo rápido do EOS-1D ou Nikon D4.
  • Pros: Compacta para um SLR full-frame. Resolução de 22 megapixels. Largo visor ótico. LCD traseira nítido com alta resolução. Autofoco rápido. Disparo contínuo de 6fps. Excelente e alto desempenho ISO. Gravação de vídeo 1080p.
  • Cons: Caro. Foco lento nos modos Live View e Vídeo. Sem flash integrado. Não é compatível com lentes EF-S.
