Why the Mark III is the best 5D model yet...

Vastly improved AF module ; Addition of 'headphones in' socket ; Enhanced ISO range/performance ; Faster DIGIC 5+ processor ; Built like a tank ; Exceptional image quality ; Fantastic video performance

Canon EOS 5D MK III

 

After Nikon's D90, it felt like the crown of video would go to that firm. But, surprisingly, it was Canon that swooped in, and hoovered up the newly established video-from-SLR market. The D90 was never able to produce video sufficient for professional...

Stills are beautiful, capable of producing superb video, lightning-fast auto-focus, rapid shooting, solidly built

No "clean" HDMI output, buttons to control camera settings take some getting used to, we'd love to see some more high frame-rate modes

As with the Nikon D800, there’s little bad to say about the latest 5D. This does feel like a camera aimed at the film-maker, but at no point does it ever feel that Canon has compromised on the quality of stills it produces. Indeed, our first instinct...

Hands-on: Canon EOS 5D Mark III review - Pocket-lint

 

Canon has been rather tight-lipped about the EOS 5D Mk III - the company's follow up to the mightily successful 5D Mk II – before its official launch

Canon EOS 5D Mark III review

 

One of the best full-frame DSLRs out there

Excellent HDR mode ; Detailed raw and JPG files ; High quality images ; Low noise

Complicated AF system ; A bit pricey

It may have been replaced by the Mark IV, but the Mark III is still a great choice for those after a feature-packed full-frame DSLR.

Canon has just launched an amazing deal for Black Friday

For photography, the 5D Mark III is an absolute triumph. It's fast, its controls are comprehensive and efficient and its image quality is truly breathtaking. The superb colours and details are welcome, but it's the incredibly low noise that sets it...

Canon EOS 5D Mark III review

 

Canon's 5D series cameras have gained legendary status over the last seven years. Their full-frame (35mm film-size) sensors clearly identify them as professional quality cameras, yet at around half the cost of Canon's flagship 1D range, they're a...

A photographic tour-de-force – if you can justify the cost it'll be hard to resist

Canon EOS 5D Mark III review

 

Canon has pulled out every proverbial stop for the EOS 5D Mark III. The sensor is new and was designed specifically for this model. It's got more auto-focus points, an improved movie mode and it's faster and more responsive all round.

Image quality; Build; Movie clarity; Improvements over predecessor.

None.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III represents a significant advance over its predecessor. It's fast, flexible and can't be faulted on image or video quality. It's a well-specced piece of kit at a reasonable cost (the price below is for the body only). The Mark...

Canon's EOS 5D was the first vaguely affordable full-frame DSLR and became one of the must-have cameras for professional and semi-pro photographers. The EOS 5D Mark III isn't quite so revolutionary, but it promises a big step up from the EOS 5D Mark...

Having just looked at a small DSLR unit, this is a bigger one with a large lens, certainly not something to fit in a pocket and definitely something to attach the neck strap to unless of course you are into a tough fitness regime when it may not seem...

The Canon EOS 5D DSLR measures 23x11.5x18.5 when closed, fully extend the 24-105mm lens I was sent and this increases the last figure to 23cm. The weight is just over 1500grams with neck strap attached. While I am always as guilty as most to not...
