Horrible 5D Mark iii

Clifford Richardson, Amazon
28 December 2014
  • Summary: This is the worse $3900 plus dollars I ever waisted. All the pictures in auto are too dark even with the flash. I compared it to my 70D and my friends 6D and this expensive camera was the worse .

Not a trustworthy, bad investment, Stay away

keemman, Ebay
6 October 2014
  • Summary: Even though it is less than the USA official release of Canon 5D mark III, it is not the same because you will need to go through their bad customer service and they will keep tricking you saying oh but this not a defect and provide million reasons to run away from the responsibility.

Bad quality

peter, Canon
30 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Just got my new 5D Mark III. When the CF card I ordered arrived it did not work and tried 2 others that work with canon cameras. Would not even format. Today picked camera out of bag and the top of the mode dial fell off.
  • Pros: excellent image quality, Bright LCD, iso noise
  • Cons: Poor build quality, Heavy/Bulky, Complicated controls/menu, to many af options

updater still goofy

Keith, Canon
10 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Canon has never been able to figure out that this product should update without having to have the CD. This is 2013 CDs are useless. Just let us download the installer.
  • Pros: Solid Operation, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
  • Cons: updates are annoyingly difficult, only eos utility is worth installing

19 January 2013

  • Pros: Looks Good In Ads
  • Cons: Doa Less Than 100 Shots

Great Camera Poor Shipping

Robert S., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Summary: I would not buy a lens from Newegg because of this exact issue, I am not alone here with the shipping issues, and why they don't correct it is beyond me, or its just the old way to save a dollar and just take back what breaks, in my option how much more does it cost to use the correct size box and...
  • Pros: This camera is the best performing 5D currently. It will do anything you need as long as you know what you are doing. I needed a full frame camera as my business has grown and my 50D was aging. I was not looking to get this but when I received a 20% off promo, I checked all other websites to see ...
  • Cons: The reason for the 1 egg, is because shipping. I received the box that was 4 times the size of the product. When I picked it up the product inside the box slide till it hit the sidewall. I then opened up the box to reviled one 8 inch piece of packing paper (newspaper would have been thicker) so b...
