Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is the natural step up from previous model EOS 5D Mark II. As the authentic EOS 5D was introduced in October 2005, it signified the first inexpensive full-frame DSLR.


After three and a half years, the Mark II roughly duplicated the motion from 12 to 21 Megapixels and turned out to be the first DSLR to really embark on the possibility of video recording, an eminence which is patronized by independent film makers, many TV producers and even larger studio owners. Now that we have the Mark III, it is debatably one of the most awaited DSLRs for years. In fact, many of its improvements have boiled down from other models. Basically, a lot of people wanted the speed, ergonomics, view finder coverage and increased toughness of the camera.


The 5D Mark III incessant shooting speed may not quite match the 7D, but 6fps is remarkably quicker than the 3.9fps of the Mark II, while the 61-point AF system outshines the 9 and 19-point systems of the Mark II and 7D accordingly. The Mark III is built in with LP-E6 Lithium Ion pack as antecedent, but Canon claims longer life of 950 shots under CIPA conditions compared to 850. The Mark III needs a split transmitter while the D800 does have a built-in popup flash which recharges quickly and is useful as a controller. The Mark III obtains its various capabilities first seen on the 1DX, giving a chance to put together nine separate frames into one, using a choice of four options: Additive, Average, Bright and Dark. A large number of people are really pleased to find Canon completely offering deep bracketing and various capabilities on this line.


What the Mark III does not have though is any kind of built-in-time-lapse or interval shooting facilities, both of which are built-into the D800. For many photographers, basically, it allows them to shoot an image without hearing any shuttering sound. They call it a Silent Single. They like the mode that uses a process called Pulse Width Modulation, which slows the speed of the mirror mechanism and the shutter charging motor. This mode is absolutely vibration-free. It is well-matched with the high speed constant drive mode, letting them capture six frames per second. It incorporates a fixed focusing screen that optimizes brightness.


Many lens users are well aware that they often change this bright screen with a superior screen that is dimmer. Arguably, if there are dusts on the focusing screen, the specks don't show on the actual picture though you can clean it anyway. Usually, there are tough times being spent by many lens users using manual lenses. Like other models with so called fixed screens, it could easily be replaced by the customer. People overestimate Canon 5D III without it even being examined by a third party until the third party suppliers will actually take actions upon it. So in conclusion, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is one of the best in the market right now and there is no doubt about it that it is a great buy. 

  • Pros:
    Functional; High quality
  • Cons:
    Expensive; No interval shooting facilities
Our score:
5 / 5
