FREE Adobe Lightroom 5 & Premiere Elements 11 worth £180! The long-awaited Canon 5D Mark III follows on from the highly specified Canon 5D Mark II but with the addition of a few new, much needed enhancements. The 5D Mark III is aimed at the semi-pro and professional level photographers who desire a lightweight, weather-proof construction, outstanding image quality and impressive levels of speed. The 5D Mark III features a high-resolution 22.3 CMOS sensor and Canon’s powerful DIGIC 5+ processor to ensure a lightning fast frame rate of 6 frames per second. A 61-point AF system (41 cross-types) and an impressive expandable ISO range from 50-102,400 ensures both static and fast moving subjects can be captured, even in dimly lit environments. Not only is it capable of producing exceptional stills, the Canon 5D Mark III can also record Full HD 1080p movies, offering full manual control and stereo sound, and the 3.5mm mic socket and headphone socket allows audio monitoring while recording.

November 2012 - I am a full time professional wedding photographer. I shoot with a combination of cameras, notably the Fuji X-Pro1 and the 5D range of cameras from Canon. The 5D2 was the first full frame body I owned and I ended up working my way through three of them. So, when the 5D3 was announced I was really quite excited about it.

Firmware Update 1.2.3 - 21st October 2013
Canon has released a new firmware update for the Canon 5D Mk III. Firmware Version 1.2.3 is for EOS 5D Mark III cameras with firmware up to Version 1.2.1. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.2.3, it is not necessary to update.
For more information on what is included and how to download, please visit the Canon website here.
Without the Canon 600EX-RT flashgun (or E3-RT Transmitter) installed on the camera you can’t wirelessly control another flash. To control a slave from the 5D Mark III, or any other EOS camera for that matter, you will need a master of some sort on the hot shoe (either a 600EX-RT or a ST-E3). Full support of the 600EX with the 5D MK III means that you get full control of the flash using the LCD. And full support of AF assist – the 600EX has support for all the focus points of the 5D MK III. The 5D MK III does not feature a built-in flash.
We caught up with David Parry on the Canon Stand at Focus 2012 to find out a little more on the new Canon 5D Mark III.

Bought as an upgrade to the MkII, the numbers Canon publish only indicate minimal improvements. This doesn't reflect the real world improvement in this camera, the quiet shooting modes are excellent and overall performance and image quality are excellent.
Wish I had upgraded earlier
About Me Pro Photographer
I upgraded from a 7D for shooting in low light and this has now become the camera of choice. I shoot mainly nature and was worried about the lack of crop sensor but I have not looked back since getting this beauty.
would like a second one one day maybe
By hunter man
big leap from my 50d much better in low light huge choice of menus still learning the focus settings only done one shoot to date pleased with the results
Upgraded from Canon 5D Mark II
By Kam Sanghera
As soon as i pressed the shutter for the first time, i realised how quick the shutter speed was compared to my old Canon 5D Mark II. There are a few new controls on the camera, which do not take to long to adjust too. Overall very happy with my purchase. Even though the cost of the Upgrade is quite considerable.

I am a professional photographer and use a couple of 5d mk111's for weddings, the quality of images produced at high ISO's is one of the main reasons I chose to use these particular cameras. They are also very user friendly and feel great in the hand.

A superb camera, great build quality, easy control layout, great pictures. It is quite heavy as I have the battery pack fitted but not a major problem. I have only had the camera a few weeks but I am very impressed with everything about it.

Great Low-Light Sports Camera
from Long Eaton, Nottingham, Derbyshire
I use one of these for Gymnastics Events where the full frame sensor and capability to go to ISO6400 without high-noise is very useful.FPS is respectable, and colours are fantastic as standard and even at higher ISO levelsLargest criticism is probably that the focussing system, under AIServo, whilst taken from the Flagship 1D-X seems to spend a lot of time searching back and forth. Adjusting the sensitivity and tracking helps, but it doesn't seem to "snap" on to things as well as it's superior sibling despite using the same focussing tech.

GREAT UPDATE - BUILT LIKE THE 1D SERIES
By Studio MK
from Milton Keynes
Waited too long in reality to upgrade, but glad to have the MKiii at last. Had original 5D a great camera, Mkii which was a great upgrade for high iso use but still build and focus not upto price. Now finally have the type of camera that can supply the 1D feel/build and great images. The ability to pop an Eye-Fi card in the SD slot has been a great benifit as WFT units and CF/SD adapters all been an expensive or poor workaround. Great general DSLR but higher res would be ideal to compete with Nikon at moment.WEX reputation, price and offers of Grip/Adobe etc made choice simple.
