Today, Canon announced the latest DSLR in their award-winning range of Digital SLRs; the EOS 5D Mark III. For quite some time the EOS 5D Mark III has been eagerly awaited by a number of photographers, both professionals and photo enthusiasts. This is an addition to the range, building on the success of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. The EOS 5D Mark III offers improvements in a whole host of areas. This follows feedback from across the globe from photographers actually using the camera, in order to try and create a DSLR that offers supreme quality and speed not only in still images, but also when capturing HD movie. So what’s new with the EOS 5D Mark III? First, they have improved the resolution with a 22.3 megapixel full-frame sensor coupled with a DICIC 5+ processor seen in the likes of Canon’s flagship Digital SLR, the EOS-1D X. This should ensure optimum results when using Canon’s diverse range of lenses, with the Full-frame sensor ensuring a greater control over depth of field – something much loved particularly with videographers.
The EOS 5D Mark III also features the same autofocus system found in the EOS-1D X. Featuring an impressive 41 high sensitivity cross type sensors, this enables you to deliver fast, accurate focussing of fast moving subjects – whatever the lighting situation you find yourself in. The centre 5 AF points are dual cross type for added precision. With the EOS 5D Mk III, Canon have also increased the continuous shooting mode to an improved 6 frames per second compared to the 5D Mk II with 3.9. This comfortably allows you to record up to 18 continuous RAW images or 16,270 continuous JPEG images in single burst (using a UDMA mode 7 card)
