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. Read Kevin's review of the Canon 5D MK III... »
We caught up with David Parry at Focus 2012 to find out a little more on the Canon 5D Mark III.
Full-frame 22.3-megapixel sensor
Capture high-quality images that are full of detail with a 22.3 megapixel CMOS sensorand DIGIC 5+ image processor. Colours are bright but natural, and fine detail is preserved even in dark shadow areas and bright highlights.
High-quality performance, even in low light
The EOS 5D Mark III delivers superb picture quality whatever the lighting conditions. Keep shooting hand-held even after the sun goes down, thanks to an ISO 100– 25,600 sensitivity range (extendable from ISO 50 - 102,400).
61-point wide-area autofocus
Focus quickly and accurately, even on offcentre subjects, with a 61 point wide-areaautofocus system. 41 cross-type points(five of which are extra sensitive double crosstype) ensure highly accurate tracking of moving objects.
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.
High-speed continuous shooting
Keep up with the action at 6 frames per second, recording up to 16,270 continuous JPEG images to a UDMA mode 7 card in a single burst.
With the new Creative Photo button you have quick and easy access to HDR image creation, Multiple Exposure and 7 pre-set Picture Styles with the ability to create 3 more user defined styles.
Full-HD video with manual control
Enjoy high quality Full HD video at 1080p resolution. Use manual controls and Canon’s comprehensive EF Lens range to achieve cinematic visual effects.

Great quality sound
Give your video footage the soundtrack it deserves. The EOS 5D Mark III records digital stereo sound at 48KHz and offers manual control over audio level. A standard 3.5mm mic socket enables the use of thirdparty microphones; a headphone socket permits audio monitoring while recording.
In-camera editing functions
Begin your digital editing workflow before you arrive back home. Rate your images on a scale of one to five and compare two images simultaneously on screen. Use in-camera Raw processing to explore creative possibilities – such as black & white conversion and retrospective white balance.
Built to go anywhere
A magnesium chassis provides strength and durability without adding weight. Weather sealing offers protection against dust and moisture.

Used to take photos casually.Used for editorial fashion studio work. Good shooting teathered - Fast autofocus.Amazing for casting videos - can now mirror screen with hdmi output, so useful.Would really like the option to shoot RAW video.The Auto focus is amazing, but takes a bit of practice as you can make it so precise and miss focus on areas.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Photo Enthusiast
I am surprised how much sturdier this feels comapred to the MKII version. The low light capabilities are fantastic. The MKII was no slouch in this dept, but the MKIII takes it to another level. The focus system is much improved. Once you get it set up how you want it, it is a fantastic all round bit of kit.

About Me Pro Photographer
A great general purpose camera
I would recommend this product!!
By Robert Lwin
First of all, I received it on time so the delivery service is good. This camera is perfect for me. When i bought it, light room 5 and element 11 CDs didn't include in the box. I made a call to wex and then a few days later i got the CDs. Very good customer service and respond. I bought lots of lenses from this website even though i am too picky about lenses and price sensitive.
Surprised at the many improvements over the mk2
First Rate Camera
from North Yorkshire
Having read all the reviews and tortured myself as to weather the cost of upgrading from the Mk2 to this camera was worth the exspense.. A generous trade in offer from Wex plus a £250 bonus finally swayed me to purchase the above..Right from the first time I used the 5D MK3 I was baffled as to why so many reviews claim to be unable to see much noticeble difference in image quality between the 2 cameras...Soon as I looked at the image on the LCD and zoomed it in I thought wow...I shoot a lot of models and likewise, without any prompt from me they often remark as to the improved picture quality over my previous camera..the Mk2...Put simply this camera Rocks..Practicaly everthing about this camera is an improvement over the previous one to the point if you had'nt owned the MK2 version you wouldnt think it was a follow on from it..I cant fault this camera...It handles great..Image quality, low light performance and feature wise its great..The auto White balance is so acurate I actually leave it on auto a lot of the time...I also actually shot my first ever DSLR video last week for a fitness class instrutor and was amazed at the video capabilities as well...This however leads to a very minor niggle...If I was going to use it more often for video an articulating LCD screen would be more usefull...Only other slight niggle but its most likely down to me more than the camera is the Auto Focus menu...The choices and configurations of the autofocus are so many its slighty confusing...That said...Its a great autofocus and makes the previous 5Ds autofocus quite pedestrian by comparison.. All in this is a cracking camera and will do everything most people could ask of it and a lot more..It is an exspensive camera but if the deals right and you take the plunge I very much doubt anyone will be dissapointed with this little beauty.. Well done Canon...
A great body!
I have the mark 1 and mark 2 and was worried 3, would just be "a upgrade" in the video department. But Im happy to say, it does feel like an improvement, for the stills photography too. The focus areas, is much better, the silent mode is Awesome!!, when doing conferences ect. It feels nice in the hand. A few cons/surprises, was when it came to down loading the raw files, as bridge and photoshop don't support the files and you have to go trough Lightroom to see/work on the images. The shutter/mirror (when not is silent mode) is very "rattely" and at first, I though there was something wrong with the camera and send it back. But now things are ironed out I do like my new camera!
Transformed My Pictures!!
This was an expensive camera alongside a top quality lens...EF 25-70mm USM. Picture quality is fantastic. Low light, bright light. Although I would normally have had a larger zoom lens the quality of the shots allows excellent enlargement. I am by no means a professional photographer but it produces images that are close to that of a pro with relative ease.

Canon 5D mk 3
By Lee feeldandy
Fantastic camera, ISO noise free up to 1250, silent shutter really quiet but most of all image quality, outstanding, medium format quality in a 35 mm camera. Controls easy and intuitive with the battery pack added so nice to handle, this is a 'classic' camera in a heavily saturated market. A machine to make you smile.
