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 Canon 5D Mark III features a high-resolution 22.3 CMOS sensor and Canon’s latest powerful DIGIC 5+ processor to ensure a lightening frame rate of 6 frames per second. A newly developed 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.
