Review of my new Canon 5D Mark III:

From my background in film camera to my experience with the Canon XTi and T3i here are my thoughts and observations of the 5D Mark III:

What I noticed first about the 5d Mark III was its body size. It was a little larger than the T3i. Mostly in the width side to side when you hold it, but it was comfortable to hold. It also was noticeable tougher build then the T3i. The next thing I noticed was when I took the first picture. The shutter was very quiet compared to my other cameras. I had read about the Mark III having a silent mode, so I looked to see if the camera was set to that mode and it was not. When I switched it to the silent mode I was even more impressed. Ok, Canon calls it silent, but you do still hear it a little bit.

Latter I wanted to play around with the high ISO settings that I had been reading about. The camera can be set up to a native top ISO of 25600. This would have been unbelievable in my film shooting days.  When I started shooting at different ISOs and looking close at them I decided to limit the top ISO to 10000. For me it looked like 10000 ISO did not have much grain were 25600 started showing more grain than what I wanted to shoot at. I would compare the 10000 ISO to about 1600 ISO on my T3i and 800 ISO on film.

Shooting landscape shoots in Island Park is where I really started to appreciate the full format sensor. My 24-70mm 2.8 lens was finally able to capture a wider angle of view. I shoot some low light night shots and many daylight shoots and was very happy with the performance of the camera. The long exposure night shoots showed no graininess to them. I wished this camera would have been out when I took our Alaska trip. The Aurora Borealis pictures I took with the T3i were great, but given these long night shoots I took with the Mark III, I am sure it would have been much more clear and less grain.

Although the full frame sensor was great to give me a wider angle it did give a drawback with the telephoto lenses. I was shooting pictures of some swans with my Sigma 150-500 and compared the T3i to the 5D Mark III.  You could tell the Mark III had a lower effective power then the T3i with the same lens. The Mark III has 22 Megapixels compared to the 18 Megapixels of the T3I, so I would think if I crop the Mark III’s images to give the same framing, the picture would be better from the Mark III with the lower noise sensor.

The display on the Mark III seems more clear and sharper than the T3i or XTi, well when I have my reading glasses on. The T3i has a display that can be turned around and protected or turned at different angles. The Mark III display can not be moved, but has a good viewing angle. The Mark III display is also large. The Mark III also has a B&W top display. I really like this display for night shots. It has a backlight and is a quick way to see what your settings are.

When I was shooting some water scenes I notice that the Mark III was focusing every time without any issues, even when I put some neutral density filters on it. I had issues with focusing on the T3i and XTi when I used ND filters. The camera also focused on solid surfaces almost every time. One night shoot on a dark surface did not focus right away the first try, but that was the only time it did not focus for me.

In conclusion, I am very happy with the Canon 5D Mark III. I was especially impressed by the High ISO low noise images and the very quiet shutter. I enjoy having a full frame sensor that gives me the wider angle view and the autofocus has greatly improved over my previous models of SLRs. I am very impressed by the quality of images from the camera. I wish it had a built in intervalometer and a built in flash. I have not used the video modes many times yet, but wished it would focus while shooting video. I look forward to trying it with my other lenses and look forward to using this camera for a long time.

Canon EOS-5D Mark III 22.3 Megapixel Digital Camera Body Only

Store Note: Discount Prices. Free Double Your Memory & Free Cleaning Kit

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera (Body Only) is a full-frame 22.3MP DSLR featuring exceptional still image and movie recording capabilities. Integrating Canon's new DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and 14-bit A/D conversion, this camera is able to produce superbly detailed imagery with immense low-light sensitivity that is further aided by an extended ISO range up to 102400. Image quality is further enhanced by the new 61-point high density reticular autofocus, including up to 41 cross-type AF points and 5 dual diagonal AF points for ensured sharpness. iFCL metering works in conjunction with the AF system and uses color information from scenes to produce accurate exposure readings using a 63 zone dual-layer metering sensor. HDR and Multiple Exposure modes provide greater creative opportunities and help you to reduce the amount of post-production time needed to produce high quality imagery. The 5D Mark III is also capable of recording full HD video with manual exposure control and in multiple frame rates, including 1080/30p and 720/60p. Still images can also be recorded up to 6fps. Image review is possible using the 1,040,000-dot 3.2inch Clear View II LCD monitor, which features a high- transparency, reflection resistant multi-coating for adequate viewing under bright conditions. The Intelligent Viewfinder also integrates a superimposed LCD providing you with exposure information and features a 100% field of view. A highly durable magnesium-allow body surrounds the components and offers increased dust and weather resistance. An updated EOS Integrated Cleaning system also helps to reduce and remove dust within the camera body. Several of the physical controls on the camera body are fully customizable for a more efficient workflow and more convenient handling scheme. Dual CF and SD memory card support also increases the compatibility of the camera. Support is also provided for the optional Canon Wireless File Transmitter and GPS receiver for remote logging, tracking, and sending of your imagery. 22.3 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor A newly designed 22.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor is incorporated into the 5D Mark III providing you with highly detailed, rich images with a maximum resolution of 5616 x 3744 pixels. The sensor is also features a high S/N ratio and larger individual pixels for increased visual depth and cleaner looking images. A new photodiode structure and increased photoelectric conversion rate also helps to improve the overall sensitivity of the sensor, resulting in a reduction in image noise and improved high ISO performance. DIGIC 5+ Image Processor Processing speed and power are increased to promote significantly greater overall performance and response from all aspects of the camera. New algorithms are incorporated in order to promote better noise reduction for higher ISOs and chromatic aberration compensation. The increase in processing speed also helps to improve the continuous shooting rate, bringing it to 6 full-resolution frames-per-second. 14-bit A/D Conversion The 14-bit signal processing helps to improve the quality and gradation of images by producing more natural, smooth-looking results. An increased ISO range is also provided, from 100 to 25600 in standard modes and 50 to 102400 in expanded modes. The ISO range can be controlled and customized depending on the user's preferences, and additionally an auto ISO mode can be employed. This extended sensitivity range helps to counter frequently changing and difficult lighting situations and significantly minimizes noise when photographing with even the top-rated sensitivity. 61-Point High Density Reticular AF The newly designed 61-point autofocus interface helps to ensure critical focus no matter how complex or difficult the situation is. Featuring up to 41 cross-type AF points (with f/4 lens support) and 5 dual diagonal AF points (with f/2.8 sensitivity); this AF system is highly accurate and extremely low-light sensitive. The d
