software incompatibility

SUziQP, Canon
29 November 2014
  • Conclusion: I would give it 5 stars but the following will explain why I haven't. I do LOVE this camera but have a lot to learn. The purpose of this is not to get into the technical aspects of the camera but to let it be known that it will not work with Apples new OS, Yosemite. I have had the camera fro 18 months and had no problem. Now after updating to Yosemite, I cannot download my pictures to any program on the computer.

Don't purchase this package from DavisMAX

Adam, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a review of the 5D Mark III package DavisMAX sells: I'm posting here so people know specifically what they're getting with this package. I received an opened box 5D Mark III kit lens package with the lens, manuals, and warranty card removed. The condition of the shipping box and the camera box itself were terrible.

Ricardo Zinner, Amazon

  • Summary: Hi, I bought this "kit" but the lenses (except the Canon lenses) doesn't fit the camera! Now I have to look for the adaptors. The flash quality is poor. I don't recommend.

Worst Camera ever

Pikchurman, Adorama
10 March 2014
  • Excerpt: As a 25 year professional photographer one one that has owned nearly 2 dozen Canon professional digital cameras, I can honestly say, this is the worst camera I have ever owned. If you rely on the focus points, don't count on them, as you won't be able to see them. They don't show up. They blend in with most backgrounds. There are numerous posts about the issue, however Canon will not admit there is a problem.
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

5DMKiii owner for a year and have no complaints!

michael paniagua, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this camera for about a year now and just now getting around to writing my review, so I can say with 100% certainty how I feel. I have been a Canon shooter for a while and I am stepping up from a Canon 7D. The 5D is a little bit bigger than the 7D but both have similar build qualities.

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

Poor build quality! Please READ.

J Mah, Adorama
17 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I would like to think I could expect more from Canon. I've been a faithful Canon client for years, both my T3i and 5D Mark II have served me well. I recently took the leap and bought the 5D Mark III. The image quality is amazing, but I was a disappointed as the autofocus system doesn't work as accurate / fast as my Mark II (or T3i). However, that wasn't my only issue. After only two months of gentle use, the Sensor Cleaner broke down.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Bad Customer Service, Lack Of Features, Poor build quality
