Recognizing the 25th anniversary of the Canon EOS system, Canon has introduced the heir to its EOS 5D Mark II – named as the EOS 5D Mark III.
It’s an evolutionary improvement instead of a revolutionary upgrade but that isn’t bad. It is loaded with a 22-mp full-frame CMOS image sensor which can handle ISO 100 to ISO 25600 in standard mode, and can even be set to ISO 50 and ISO 102400 if required. The Digic 5+ imaging processor can process images with 17x the pace from the previous Digic 4 processor version for high-speed Raw and Jpg image capture.
Event professional photographers will likely take pleasure in the cabability to capture Raw images at 10.5-mp and 5.5-mp resolutions if needed, This is excellent for shots that are not gonna be made into big prints. Needless to say, the Mark III also supports Raw capture at full 22-mp resolution.
The EOS 5D Mark III’s 61-point autofocus system guarantees to fasten into focus swiftly to be able to capture motion, and this can be done at up to 6 fps in constant drive mode. Both of them are huge improvements over the 5D Mark II which only has 9 autofocus points and is also restricted to shooting at 3.9 fps.
The EOS 5D Mark III’s video recording features also are enhanced, now supports a lot of HD formats with H.264 compression for simple and easy editing. The camera can shoot 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p30, 720p60, and 720p50 High-definition video. Video recorded files are restricted to only under 30 minutes long per clip, however the camera has the capacity to instantly break clips up so you will not notice the restriction while recording.
