Canon EOS 5D MkIII: Expanded Guide
The Canon EOS 5D MkIII is the latest in a dynasty of full frame DSLRs that began with the 5D in 2005 and continued with the 5D MkII in 2008. The MkIII is a significant advance over its predecessor and should tempt many 5D users to upgrade their kit. Fast and flexible, the camera offers superb image and video quality. The full frame sensor was designed for this model, with more autofocus points; the effective number of pixels has been increased to 22.3 million. The new sensor, along with Canon’s latest DIGIC 5+ processor, gives a standard ISO range of 100-25,600, allowing for better noise reduction and the ability to shoot in low light conditions. Continuous shooting at 6 fps is possible thanks to an 8-channel sensor readout. Exposure compensation is +/-5EV compared to the MkII’s +/-2EV.
