Great DSLR for smaller lenses

Tracy S., B&H Photo
22 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Excellent quality, but don't like it with larger zoom lenses. Found it hard to get a good balance when using with Canon 70-200 L or the 28-300 L series lenses. I use the 1DX as my main camera and although it is heavier, it is much better with big glass.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality

  • Excerpt: As a 25 year professional photographer (CPS member) and one that has owned nearly two dozen Canon professional digital cameras, the 5D Mark III is the worst camera I have ever owned. There are numerous posts to references on the focus points on this camera. DON'T rely on seeing them.

  • Excerpt: I must preface my review with the fact that I am not a professional photographer, I do not earn a living with my camera. I have a 7D, and have been waiting for a 7D MK II to appear--if Canon Rumors are to be believed--but in a moment of weakness I allowed the local photo shop to convince me that...

Satisfied but I expected more

armsun, B&H Photo
3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: In low light, it performs nicely, but not as nicely as I had imagined or as I had read. 3200 ISO is barely usable. 1250 kinda sucks. Disappointed.
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO

I am not 100% satisfied

Nick from Gilbert, B&H Photo
11 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this product for mostly fashion photography and trying to understand the video aspect of it. Great things about this camera are I tend to get either a hit or miss photo. So when you nail the proper angle and exposure; it really is stunning.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Short Battery Life

Still Shooters Abandoned

Twisel, Canon
10 November 2013
  • Conclusion: I wish Canon would produce a camera without all the video features. It would be nice to purchase a camera that just takes pictures. Leave out all the video stuff that goes unused and give the photographer, "the photographer" something they can benefit from.
  • Cons: Missing features/settings
