Finally, the long anticipated Canon 5D Mark III was finally introduced world wide. Am pretty sure most photographers are equally excited as me, pondering what is the new improvement Canon is going to announce. As usual there are many rumors from various forums talking about the new “secretive” product, chatters are gossiping about what they want and expect from the camera manufacturer. Said is easier than done i suppose. Is all the cheap thrill that makes it dramatic.
Here is the showcase of the new EOS 5D Mark III by Canon.
I remembered getting my 5D Mark II about 1.5 years later after it released, There’s a need to upgrade the camera as i need new technologies to cope with the new client’s base. I manage to sold it at a good price to fund for the latter.
After using the 5D Mark II for 4 years. As a professional photographer that works with the camera intensively day-in day-out, shooting various subjects in different circumstances and environment. I’ll long desired certain features that would be incorporated in the next generation of Mark III. Here is what i hope..
My dream specs for 5D Mark III
Maintain the mega pixels
More autofocus point
Better weather sealing
When i read the specs from 5D Mark III i was really overwhelmed. Is like Canon heard my voice and make such a wonderful product for my needs!
Canon EOS 5D Mark III – Key features:
22.3 Megapixel full-frame sensor
Up to 6fps continuous shooting
Native ISO 100-25,600 sensitivity (H1-51,200; H2-102,400)
Full HD video with manual control
14-bit DIGIC 5+ processor
Enhanced Weather sealing
8.11cm (3.2-inch) 1,040,000-dot screen
HDR mode with presets
The specs are close to what i want and is a cut above. Am so glad the megapixel was not further push up to 25mp or 30mp, as 21mp from 5D Mark II is a quite demanding at times to shoot at RAW mode.
New layout of the 5D Mark III exterior, it wouldn’t be hard to adapt it soon.
Probably i will get this beast about a year later, as my 5D Mark II still have a lot more room for capturing images. I feel i have yet to fully maximize it’s capabilities, yet.
