5D mk3 is good but not great

Ram, B&H Photo
7 May 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a great camera if you use it in day light in AI Servo mode. I am one of those few people who always have the camera in AI servo mode (and back button focus.. actually back button focus is not relevant to my reviw here)I shot a few Track/Field events and it is great since there are various options in AI servo mode to tweak the settings.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

ISO problem

Jafer, B&H Photo
15 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm having a bad experience with this camera. when I put the ISO on 12000 and above, I have this horizontal brown colour appears on the middle of the picture. I sent the camera to canon itself to fix the problem. however, after i got it from canon, they told me the problem was fixed but the problem still appears every time I raise the ISO to 12000 and above.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light

Could be better

  • Conclusion: I am a hobbyist photographer; that said, I would have liked to have an on-board flash. I also own the 7D. I like the fact that with the 7D, I can use the on-board flash as a master flash (turned all the way off) for my 580 and 320 external flashes. With the 5D, I will need to purchase the speedlite transmitter to accomplish the same task. I would also have liked it if Canon would have made the LCD screen tilt, like the 60D.
  • Pros: Superior build quality

Not yet ready for professional use

Woods, B&H Photo
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: As a press photographer I shoot then send, shoot then send....making quick edits throughout the day then a more thorough edit when the shooting is done.<br />The camera wouldn't allow this, it would lock up with an error and the only way to continue shooting with the same card would be to reformat the card in a different camera. Not realistic for me, not acceptable for the price. I'm sure it will be fixed soon enough but for now..
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Uresolved firmware issues

body light leakage

canon7dlover, Canon
8 April 2012
  • Conclusion: body cap on, eyepiece on, meter still reads something, it should be completely dark inside the body. with LCD top panel light on, the metering changing. in real shootings -- tend to under exposed in the varied light source conditions, like sunlite and shadow, window light and dark room etc. weather seal seems not that good, with laser beam tests, can see possible light leak from top to bottom.
  • Pros: many features that are for events/wedding shooters, low iso iq
  • Cons: mechanical structure issues, pricy

Toller Relaunch

  • Summary: Ob sich der Kauf einer 5 D Mk III lohnt, das muss jeder für sich selbst klären. Ich möchte hier auch auf keine Tests verweisen - die gibt es eh zuhaufe. Aber mit den sog. "objektiven" Tests ist das so eine Sache: Da sind einfach zuviele Paramater, auch persönliche, die es zu berücksichtigen gilt. Dafür hier meine persönlichen Erfahrungen. Ich habe so ziemelich jede Profikamera von Canon verwendet, bin aber in der Reportagefotografie ein Fan der 5-D-Serie geworden.
