Canon 22.3 Megapixel EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera With EF 24-105mm IS Lens, Model EOS5DMARKIIIKIT

Canon is proud to present the highly anticipated EOS 5D Mark III. With supercharged EOS performance and stunning full frame, high-resolution image capture, the EOS 5D Mark III is designed to perform. Special optical technologies like the 61-Point High Density Reticular AF and an extended ISO range of 100-25600 (expandable to 50 (L), 51200 (H1) and 102400 (H2) make the EOS 5D Mark III ideal for shooting weddings in the studio or out in the field, and great for still photography. Advanced professional-level high definition video capabilities (that includes a host of industry-standard recording protocols and enhanced performance) make it possible to capture beautiful cinematic movies in EOS HD quality. A newly designed 22.3 Megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, Canon DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, and shooting performance up to 6.0 fps provide exceptional clarity and sharpness, even when capturing rapidly-unfolding scenes. Additional technological advancements include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Multiple Exposure mode - all of which that help make the EOS 5D Mark III the perfect multimedia tool.

Features:

  • 22.3 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor
    The EOS 5D Mark III features a newly developed Canon full-frame 22.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor that's designed from the ground up to create high resolution, perfectly detailed images with unprecedented speed and clarity. A full 24 x 36mm, the sensor captures 5784 x 3861 large individual 6.25 ?m pixels and has a much-improved S/N ratio. A new photodiode structure with an increased photoelectric conversion rate increases the sensor's sensitivity by approximately 2 stops over previous models, meaning higher ISOs with the lowest noise of any EOS digital camera. And a 2-line 8-channel simultaneous signal readout means speeds of up to 6.0 fps (RAW + JPEG) are possible
  • 14-bit A/D conversion, wide range ISO setting 100-25600 (L: 50, H1: 51200, H2: 102400)
    The EOS 5D Mark III not only offers 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, it delivers higher standard and expanded ISOs, and a score of new options to enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations. With a standard range of ISO 100-25600, the EOS 5D Mark III represents a 2-stop increase in sensitivity over previous cameras. Thanks to the improved signal-to-noise ratio of the new sensor and powerful noise reduction, the EOS 5D Mark III can shoot at expanded sensitivities down to ISO 50 (L) and up to 51200 (H1), and even 102400 (H2)
  • DIGIC 5+ Image Processor for enhanced noise reduction and blazing processing speed
    The EOS 5D Mark III uses a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor. Working with two 4-channel A/D converter front-end processing circuits, and delivering speeds of up to 6.0 fps (RAW + JPEG), and the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor improves data processing performance and features new algorithms that promote greater noise reduction at higher ISOs. In addition to conventional image processing functions the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor offers real-time compensation for chromatic aberration in both still and motion images
  • All new 61-Point High Density Reticular AF
    The newly designed 61-Point High Density Reticular AF features an Offset Array Sensor (with staggering AF point arrangement) to deliver greater accuracy, no matter the situation. It offers multi-zone wide-area AF for better tracking, has 5 central dual cross-type points (f/2.8 diagonal), 21 central cross-type points (f/5.6 horizontal & vertical) and 20 outer cross-type points (f/4.0 horizontal), and is sensitive in extremely low-light situations (EV-2 for a central point with a f/2.8 lens)
  • iFCL Metering with 63-zone dual-layering metering sensor
    The EOS 5D Mark III features Canon's multi-layer 63-zone iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) Metering System that integrates the cameras AF system into its readings. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding the chosen AF point(s), this new system delivers an entirely new level of accuracy, especially in situations where the light changes quickly. The metering sensor enables evaluative, center weighted, partial and spot metering, plus offers 5-step exposure compensation for perfectly exposed images, every time
  • EOS HD Video with manual exposure control, multiple frame rates and selectable All i-frame or IPB compression
    The EOS 5D Mark III offers both All-I and IPB compression, supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile, and automatically splits files greater than 4GB (FAT specifications) for extended recording without interruption. It offers the option of timecoding during recording only (Rec Run) or at all times (Free Run), useful for multi-camera shoots. It also features improved sound recording adjustment capabilities, offering 64-step volume control accessible through the Quick Control screen during video shooting, plus a dedicated headphone jack for convenience in shooting

    As an avid hobbyist photographer (used to develop my own film, back in the day) of 50 years, I am not satisfied with mediocre equipment. I gave up on film 10-12 years ago, and six years ago I got my first Full Frame digital, the 5D. Wow â€" Depth of field, focal length, f stop, ISO; all the familiar interactions from 35mm film cameras "fit" again. At the time, I thought "Almost as good as film", but much cheaper, since there is no incremental cost for each picture (Film was expensive per shot). Then 3 years ago I got the 5D mk II. Finally â€" as good as film, maybe better. Video was a nice touch, especially video of my grandkids â€" with a camera, they pose for the picture, then they think I'm done when I lower the camera from my eye and switch to video. No antics or mugging for the camera-just natural candid recordings. Two weeks ago I got the 5D mk III. After a wedding, vacation sightseeing, landscape outing, and general "for the record" shooting opportunities with the mk III, I'm thinking â€" "This is way better than film". Image quality â€" Better tonal gradations, especially of skin â€" the earth's (fields of flowers, new leaves, blossoms) and people's. By better I mean better than the best film I've used. Better than the 5D mkII. Capturing human expression in a photo is more sensitive to shading and skin tone than I'd realized, and maybe more sensitive than having high resolution. I'm capturing every expression. Dual cards â€" no more missed shots when my card fills (it always seemed that my spare card was back in the car, in the house, or home). Some of the best opportunities would pass while I fiddled deleting some rejects to make more room. Now I'm getting every shot. Great auto focus â€" With anything more than near dark (had some OOF outside at 8:30 pm in Texas the last day of March (nearly pitch black), but just 30 minutes earlier focus was spot on), nailed the focus for what I was focused on. Not always what I wanted â€" the 6 modes requires some experimentation and learning of the pros and cons of each, and remembering to switch to the appropriate mode. With deliberate shots using shallow Depth of Field, the focus was perfect every shot; much better than the mk II. Crowd scenes were trickier. Needed to select the focus point, pre-focus with a spot focus, or be satisfied with focus on the closest subject. The capability is there for perfection, however, and I know I'm getting in-focused pictures of things and people I'd never have gotten with any other camera I've used. Quiet shutter mode â€" Wonderful! In a public setting, or with kids/animals, I can take pictures without distracting anyone. I'm much more willing to take the shot and capture the moment now with the mk III. Chromatic Aberration Correction â€" Finally! Amateurs don't always get to choose the perfect shooting angle; I have more backlit pictures than I'd care to admit. However, with some lenses the CA is awful. Found no purple or green fringing with high contrast shots with the mk III, while many of my mk II photos would be unusable. More keepers. The many other little features (HDR â€" tried a few), lock on mode dial, etc. all add up to more good photos taken & fewer missed opportunities. Bottom line â€" I'm capturing more photos, good photos, and getting more beautiful pictures of people and things than with any other camera I've used, and that is what photography is about for me. Terrific!!!

    I wish Canon would produce a camera without all the video features. It would be nice to purchase a camera that just takes pictures. Leave out all the video stuff that goes unused and give the photographer, "the photographer" something they can benefit from. How about a dedicated mirror lockup button. Include a voice memo function like the 1D series. Better low light focus accuracy. Include a focus assist light on the pro cameras. Wifi on the pro cameras. Put some R&D into a faster sync speed. How about camera based image stabilization?

    Nice encounter !

    By Jerryspeed

    from Paris , France

    Comments about Canon 22.3 Megapixel EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera With EF 24-105mm IS Lens:

    I bought my EOS 5d mark iii because my wife has a 6d and I was jealous ! I love the really nice ergonomics. All the buttons and commands are very naturally situated on the body. And I really love the silent mode. I mean the silent mode is just extraordinary. It is a real satisfaction to take a picture and nobody can hear you. About image quality I find the amount of detail and crispness beautiful and the colours are gorgeous. Warm yet very natural. I did not give the camera five stars just because the viewfinder could be better. I have difficulties to see into the corners sometimes. Maybe the mark iv will be granted the 1DX's finder, which I think is the best optical viewfinder on the market. By far. Anyway I am new to the EOS world and I love my new companion. As to lenses I have the 24-70mm f/2.8 ii, which is like tack sharp all the time and produces very beautiful colours.

    Comments about Canon 22.3 Megapixel EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera With EF 24-105mm IS Lens:

    I am an enthusiastic amateur with professional background in photomicroscopy. I have had the 5D Mark III for a year and use it mostly for still photography (macro, landscape). Like most other reviewers, I have been pleased with image quality. Love the Quick Menu for most common settings. Strongly recommend using with L series lenses to get optimum performance. Would appreciate future attention to lighter weight, particularly when combined with the18-300 mm L series zoom lens! Also, would appreciate easier access to a few other settings besides those in the Quick menu - mirror lockup, memory card format, for example.

    Best Trade Up Ever

    By Hoss

    from Uncasville, CT.

    Comments about Canon 22.3 Megapixel EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera With EF 24-105mm IS Lens:

    I am a freelance photographer and use the 5D Mark lll for everything, traded up from the Mark ll. I highly recommend this camera for the Novice/Pro. It is a little weak in the sports department but for that I anxiously await the release of the 7 D Mark ll to use as my sports camera.

    Excellent Upgrade

    By Fizxman

    from Fayetteville, AR

    Comments about Canon 22.3 Megapixel EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera With EF 24-105mm IS Lens:

    Pros: Super image quality, great low-light response, terrific AF, best spectral response of any camera I've ever used - awesome for astrophotography! Cons: Heavy to carry all day, needs top glass to get top performance, steep learning curve (but not THAT hard to learn!) I purchased this when my 5D mk i was stolen earlier this year. I'd used the original 5D since 2006 and was very happy with it - but this camera is light years ahead on features, build quality, low-light performance and AF technology. I shoot primarily landscape/nature and astrophotography, occasionally family, vacation and other shots. I'm not a pro, but I was a professor of astronomy & physics for many years and wanted a camera that I could enjoy for my astronomy (low light and good performance across the spectral band a necessity!) and my personal photography needs. The new 5D mk iii certainly fills the bill. For outdoor and nature shots, this camera's IQ just crushes any other camera I have used. I have a colleague who got a new crop-sensor camera (very nice kit - not a cheapie) and we went hiking together so I could help him learn to shoot with his new camera. Shots from morning to mid-day, landscape, telephoto, and macro work, over 100 shots for both of us. The showdown was putting the photos up side-by-side on large dual monitors -- the difference in image quality, sharpness, spectral range was really amazing. I was able to get some terrific photos by shooting a large scene and cropping out the amazing bit that I wanted with no loss of IQ. The depth of detail that is in the images as you begin to zoom in and look around is absolutely fantastic. This is also an amazing camera for astrophotography work. I'm a refractor man, myself (lunar and planetary work is a specialty). I have two refractors - in camera terms they are 900mm f/5.5 and 1700mm f/12 systems (the latter is a 7-ft long lens that takes a 150 kg computerized tripod to handle it!) Still shots on these have been amazing - detail on the lunar disk like I've never seen before. Can't wait to try video on Jupiter and Saturn - as video processing and stacking images is the latest technique for planetary images. Haven't tried deep sky stuff yet - but fully expect the images to be spectacular. The camera DOES have something of a learning curve - especially if you are new to DSLR's. It is also a solid, heavy piece of kit to carry around your neck all day - but that being said, definitely a quality investment that you will enjoy for years to come. Highly recommended!

        Comments about Canon 22.3 Megapixel EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera With EF 24-105mm IS Lens:

        I'm basing this review on 38 years of being a commercial photographer. Since retiring my 2 1/4, 4x5, and 8x10 in 2004 and switching to digital I've tried both Canon and "The other guys". I ended up staying with Canon. Here are a few reasons: 1. Canon focuses much faster, much more accurately, and much more consistently than you know who. 2. This Mark 3 is producing images that equal any medium format I've used concerning detail, noise, and overall quality. The image quality has blown me away more than once. 3. Even though I've seen a few reviews quacking about the settings being complicated, I disagree. I find this camera easy to use, quick to adjust, and very adaptable without a lot of hassle. 4. Noise, if you know what you're doing, is pretty much a thing of the past with this camera. I've shot at !SO 10,000 and gotten images that were incredibly "cleaner" than shooting with brand x at ISO 1600. And I was using one of their higher end cameras. I've used this camera for fashion, product, and architecture. I've never had a problem and have always found it a pleasure to shoot. I should mention I shoot everything manually (except focus). So, I can't really give an opinion regarding any of the auto settings. But I'd imagine, knowing Canon like I do, they are no doubt just as great as the rest of this camera. I give it a big two thumbs up.

                  I love this camera. The still photos are jaw dropping amazing. This is my first full size sensor camera and it blows any crop sensor out of the water. What I do not understand is why a camera with such great auto focus completely lacks any focusing aid when shooting video.My eyes are not so good anymore and manual focus is a big problem for me. I guess I'll just have to get a larger external monitor.

The first thing that caught my attention was the view finder, WOW! I really love this. I also bought the 70-200f2.8L is II USM to go with my other gear, this is a super lens to use with the mmIII.

                        Image Quality is not all about sensor megapixel size, there are many subjective factors to consider. This is difficult to describe in words, so best if I just say there is a very special quality to the images from this sensor, especially of people. People have almost an "ethereal" look to them, from small children to adults. The skin tones are some of the best I have ever seen in a digital camera. I absolutely love the "silent" shutter and the way the camera feels in my hands. Canon put some kind of special material on the body, so that you have just the right "grip" on the camera. The autofocus variables are simply top-notch, but there is a "learning curve" to what this camera can do with the autofocus. HDR is a blast, so is the Multi-exposure. I have a slight shutter delay on the maximum image HDR setting; but this might be due to my CF card. Future firmware updates may help this issue.
