Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III (Body Only) review

 

Canon's 1Ds series of cameras exists in a class of its own. With pixel counts well above anything else offered in a 35mm-format digital SLR, an attention to detail that addresses the needs of high-end professionals, and a price tag that's thousands of...

Very low noise, high quality images; 21.1 megapixels; live view shooting; pro-level build-quality and performance.

High price tag; heavy body; no AF in live view mode.

The 1Ds Mark III marks another high-end success for Canon, though you'll need a lot of spare cash if you want to own this ground-breaking camera.

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

 

A professional D-SLR digital camera for those who require speed and excellent low-light performance.

Excellent low-light performance, huge resolution, dual memory slot types (CF and SD), built-in dust reduction

Manual aperture control is not intuitive, autofocusing results did not show during Live View mode

Canon's flagship full-frame digital SLR camera will capture huge images with its 21.1-megapixel sensor, and it will do a stellar job in low-light conditions. It's a professional camera that will capture crystal-clear pictures when paired with the right...

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

 

It is always exciting to hear that your most-used piece of photography kit is being replaced with a new and improved model - as was the case for me with the announcement of the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III. The 1Ds III is Canon's ultra-high-end DSLR,...

More Live View ... Attach a TV to the camera and preview your shot on the big screen. Attach a computer to the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III via the USB 2.0 port and load the included EOS Utility software. Now you see the Live View display on your monitor and...

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital camera review

 

Since Kodak's disappearance from the market, Canon held the luxurious position of being the only manufacturer with a full-frame digital SLR in their program for a long time. The large amount of pixels in a firm professional housing made the 1Ds the...

Canon started from scratch with the Mark III. And that is obvious with the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III. It is much more than a Mark II with a new image sensor. There has been thorough thought about the whole camera and the entire structure has been altered...
