Canon EOS-1DS Mark III review

 

The third EOS-1DS breaks the £6000 barrier and a few preconceptions – it's a camera for all occasions, not just the studio

If you can afford one and can find one, don’t think twice about it. If not, rent one from a specialist outlet for phenomenal results.

Canon EOS 1Ds MKII review

 

The 1Ds utilises a 17-megapixel full-frame sensor for razor-sharp images and natural colours and the LCD on the body features 230,000 pixels

With this little wonder if you can point straight you can be a photographic genius

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital SLR Camera Review

 

The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III digital SLR raises the standards of digital photography much further with a full frame 21 Megapixel sensor, Dual DIGIC III processing and rugged design.

Compatibility with Canon’s range of EF series lenses and EX Series Speedlite flashguns makes the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III the complete professional photographic solution (the EOS-1Ds Mark III is not compatible with EF-S series lenses).

Canon EOS-1Ds Mk III Review

 

With the exception of medium-format digital backs, nothing comes close to the 21.1-megapixel EOS-1DS Mk III in terms of resolution. Aimed at pros looking for the ultimate image quality in a compact body and boasting a full-frame sensor, it's a...

Although more compact and lightweight than the packs used in previous models, the LP-E4 pack offers up to 1,800 shots from one charge!

The price of the MkIII has dropped since its launch; it is now similar to the previous body, but offers much more.
