Canon EOS 1D Mk III digital camera

 

Canon announced its new professional DSLR with much fanfare and ensuring that everyone knew that (despite appearances) the Mk III was a new camera built from the ground up. The Canon EOS 1D Mk III looks unrivaled in terms of its burst shooting prowess...

Handling, frame rate performance, build quality, low and high ISO image quality, feature set, metering

Servo AF not reliable, accurate exposure on LCD difficult, price, weight, limited exposure modes

The Canon EOS 1D Mk III looks unrivaled in terms of its burst shooting prowess and noise performance at higher ISOs. Ditto its handling, which, despite the weight is superb to use and easy to control thanks to very clear and simple to navigate menus,...

Canon EOS 1D Mark III review

 

Ever wondered how much camera three grand would get you? Wonder no more because the EOS-1D Mark III has arrived - and it's rather good

Forget gold plated and diamond encrusted – if you've got three grand to spare and don't mind weighty snappers, this is the camera to blow it on

Canon EOS 1D Mark III review

 

Canon has turbocharged its pro-level 1D range

Thoughtfully updated ; Jaw-dropping picture quality ; Fantastically versatile

Very expensive

The price will be a turn-off for many, but this is a precision tool for demanding users. Sports, wildlife and press photographers have never had it so good

Canon EOS-1D Mark III

 

For speed, flexibility and build quality there is no DSLR to compete with Canon's EOS 1D Mark III. With its dust and weather proofing, and 10fps drive combined with a 10MP sensor, this is the ultimate camera for press, sport and wildlife photography. A...

Canon EOS 1-D Mk III Review

 

The blistering frame rate is the headline feature of the 10.1-megapixel Canon EOS-1D MkIII and marks it out as the camera of choice for speed merchants. Daniel Lezano finds out what else the MkIII has in its arsenal and whether its appeal extends...

At its core is a pair of DIGIC III processors that work in parallel to optimise the processing of images. With the EOS-1D Mk III offering a 10.1-megapixel resolution and a ten frames-per-second shooting rate (in bursts of up to 110 JPEGs or 30 Raw),...

Canon EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR Camera Review

 

The Canon EOS-1D Mark III sets the standard when it comes to professional level digital SLR photography.

One of the main strengths of digital SLR photography is the extended creative possibilities provided by interchangeable lenses; a new lens transforms the camera into a whole new photographic tool. The Canon EOS-1D Mark III is compatible with all EF...

Canon EOS-1D MkIII Review

 

It's the world's fastest digital SLR, but are the results as breathtaking as the frame rate or is it all just hot air?

Handling, impressive noise control at high ISO sensitivities, metering accuracy, wide (if a little daunting) range of custom functions, good bundled software

AF accuracy on fast-moving objects, slight softness to unprocessed images, price tag

There's much to like about the EOS-1D Mark III. The handling, for example, is sublime. The complex button pressing of the 1D MkII has completely disappeared, replaced instead with a simplified layout that's really easy to navigate through the MkIII's...
