Canon EOS 5D Mark III

24 January 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Speed; features; accuracy; video

Canon 5D Mark III

Imaging Resource
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...

Review: Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Wired
1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The 22.3-megapixel Canon EOS 5D Mark III captured some of the cleanest images I’ve seen from a DSLR when shooting in low light at high ISOs. That’s no small feat. Cameras such as the 5D Mark III’s predecessor — the 5D Mark II — and the 16.2MP Nikon D4 , are designed as low-light assassins, with...
  • Pros: In-camera HDR (High Dynamic Range) feature combines three shots into one image with better exposure. “Silent” shooting mode helps capture stealthy candid portraits. Rank photos in-camera with one to five stars, then carry those ratings over to Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Bridge and Apple Aperture. Sam...
  • Cons: Only slightly more resolution than four-year-old previous model. Starting price nearly ,000 higher than predecessor. Built-in mic only offers mono sound.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review

What Digital Camera
5 April 2012
  • Summary: The 5D MkIII comes in at £2999 – quite hike in price from the launch price of the MkII, which can now be picked up for under £1700. Canon believe that it’s a whole different class of camera to the model that it superseeds, and we’re inclined to agree with them.
  • Pros: Excellent set of features, build-quality is much better than MkII, AF system and overall performance
  • Cons: Expensive compared to some rivals.

1 March 2012
  • Summary: The Canon EOS 5D Mark III makes a raft of improvements to the best-selling Mark II to become one of the most complete and well-balanced DSLRs around.
