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.


  • 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?

    Poor quality control


    from Dayton,Oh

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

    Purchase the 5d mark iii 6 weeks ago. All of sudden it stopped powering up. Went completely dead. Using original canon batteries. Vey disappointing that after spending several thousand dollars I have received a "lemon".

    Time for a Change


    from california

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

    Older professionals are looking to shed weight. A camera bag with 2 5D Mark III bodies, three lenses, 2 flashes, batteries, filters, etc. weighs a lot. If traveling you can shed a flash unit and maybe a lens. The move is mirrorless lighter camera and lenses. Canon is not only not listening or reading but coming out with a 50 megapixel camera to get in the big pixel game. Unfortunately it is way beyond pricey if the news is correct. My canons have served me well for 20 plus years but going to switch to light in every way.

    Awesome Camera!


    from Austin, TX

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

    After using my 70D for a year and looking for a second camera, I decided to go full frame with the 5Diii. In principle because of lower noise at higher ISO. The 5Diii has exceeded my expectations, especially in low light conditions such a photographing concerts with high ISO settings. Focus is very fast, and I recommend the battery grip for extended time of camera use though adds to the bulk and weight, but worth it. My main cons are the poor/slow AF in live view and absence of touch-tilt LCD screen. The 70D will remain my GoTo video DSLR, which it was well designed.

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

    I recently purchased the 5DIII, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, and 100-400mm camera and lenses. For me this was a long awaited purchase coming from the T3i. I could not be any happier!!! I shoot in all formats from night photography to sporting events and the quality of these lenses and camera are second to none. My photos have increased in quality, clarity and the ability to capture that special moment is excellent!! I am looking forward to many YEARS with this equipment and the qaulity of CANON!!!

    broken dial


    from Penfield, NY

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

    I've had my mark3 since June 2012. I also own the mark2. I now use it as a backup camera. No comparison in my opinion. Last week the top part of the dial came off my camera while traveling on the plane to Atlanta. So disappointed. The camera never left my neck. The dial was stuck on the A setting. needless to say wrecked my week in Atlanta. I'm sending it in for repair. Still a faithful canon user.

    Canon 5D Mark III


    from Hartford, CT

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

    I wish to thank Canon for producing a Camera (5D Mark III) that could take everything nature threw at it. I started off in a Rain Forest where it was raining. No problem. I continued into a salt desert with very hot temperatures. No problem. Then we continued to Galapos, and once again spectacular photos. Again no problem. We continued to the southern most city in South America and endured cold, humidity, fog, and rain. No problem. Then around Cape Horn in 50 mph wind with stinging sleet. Again no problem. Continuing to the Falkland Islands and crossing 15 miles of peat bog in a 4x4 with our heads hitting the roof many times to see the penguins. And it was raining very hard. No Problem. Finally to candle lite wine caves in Uruguay. Perfect photos without the use of flash. Thank You Canon for producing a wonderful camera. Rich K.

    BOOM! 60d to 5DIII


    from Kansas

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

    I have used a 60d since 2011 and been happy with it. Then I rented a 5d III and that was the worst move I could have made. I should have just bought one. Before I sent the rental back I bought a 5D III of my own. The ISO difference alone is worth the upgrade. 12,800 ISO is clearer than 6400 on the 60D. The grain/noise is so much finer on the 5D III. Focus is far more acurate and easier to use. Fine focus adjust is a must. Auto ISO and minimum shutter speed is super helpful in low lighting situations. Background blur and shallow depth of field is better than the 60D since you have a larger sensor. With the 35mm 1.4 on the 60d @1.4 and the 24-70 2.8f L on the 5dII @ 2.8 (with the photo framed the same) the background blur looks identical. If you are serious about photography why wouldn't you have this camera. I wanted to wait until they release a new camera in 2015 since the 5D III is 3 years old but I should have bought one of these sooner. Even if I only own it for a few months it will be worth the low light performance. The camera doesn't make the photographer but this will make your job as a photographer much easier and will make you look better because your images will look better. If you don't know what your missing with your camera now you better keep it that way. If your a serious photographer, once you see what the advantages are I don't think you would have the option to keep anything less.

    5D Mark III


    from Southeastern Alaskan Panhandle

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

    The 5D Mark III is replacing my Mark II which died after 4 years of abuse (dropped on pavement from 4 ft 15 minutes after I opened the box. Rain, snow, submerged in muskeg water, banged against any convenient nearby object) and 30K+ images. Mark III fits my hands better than any other camera I've every held! Seriously comfortable surface texture! My focus is Alaskan Rain Forest images. They are usually low light, often very low or very high contrast. Previously I've had taken multiple images to get the right one, or merge in PS. The 68 point focusing-sensing points have almost eliminated my need for multiple images! It takes the image right the first time! Very happy with that. With the Mark II, I had a system of getting 6 differently bracketed images with two shoots. The Mark III has 7 bracketing shots with ONE shoot! All my lenses, flashes, batteries and cards fit the Mark III. No problem there. Not yet sure how the SD card slot works with the CF card, but I'm sure it will be a benefit. Wish I had bought it a long time ago, except my Mark II was working fine, so I could not justify the purchase. I have 2 other Canon bodies as backup. :) :) :)

    An Excellent Camera


    from East Lansing, MI

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

    To celebrate my 83rd Birthday in January and justify buying a new camera, I gave my Canon 60D to a grandson as a Christmas present. I want to have one excellent camera and carry no more than three lenses. And my solutions were: 1. An all-purpose Image Stabilized lens that can zoom from moderate wide-angle to portrait and beyond, the Canon 24-105 f4 IS lens. (Why does Canon not offer a 24-84 f 2.8 Image Stabilized Lens?) 2. An easy-carry lens, the Canon 40mm 2.8 STM disc lens. It is as small as it is good! 3. A portrait lens. The Canon 5D Mark III was the obvious choice because it is full-frame camera that has had two significant upgrades. While I am still struggling to learn all of the camera’s many features, I find it a marvelous camera! I hunt in the A+ (Auto) Mode, and shoot in Manual Mode with Live View. With Live View, I can: a. Press the Q Button on the back to open the menu, use the multi-controller to move to the bottom center of the /2 image, select Self-timer: 2 Sec, and press the SET Button again to set the timer and review my other tentative settings. b. Press the Pen-on-a Page (Photo Creative-Photo Compare) Button to open and select the Picture Style selections (Multiple Exposure and HDR Modes are alternatives). Press the SET Button to open the selections, spin the SET Dial to select a Picture Style, and press the SET Button again to confirm the selection. (As the SET Dial and the SET Button are clearly labeled, I strongly recommend Canon stop calling the back dial the “Quick Control Dial�. This creates confusion with the “Q� Button on the back that opens the very useful Custom Controls menu). c. Press the Magnify Button twice and center on the spot that requires the most accurate focus. Press the AF Button to autofocus, and manually refine focus as necessary. d. Press the Magnify Button again to return to full screen, frame the image and press the shutter release to start the 2-second delay. Steady the camera and capture the image. e. Press the Arrow-Head-in-a-box Button to review the captured image. Press the Magnify Button to enlarge the image, and press the Multi-Control Button to move around in the image. Press the Magnify Button again to return to the image to it’s original size. f. Take a second photo as a precaution, or shoot a burst of three images from which you can select the image in which the subjects’ eyes are all open
