Canon 5D Mk iii Finally Arrives

There has been a lot of talk about the new 5D Mk iii, it is finally here and making waves across the photography industry.

Some of the stand out specs are listed below :

Full-frame 22.3 Megapixels

canon. 5d mk iii, wedding, photography,

The long awaited MK iii

61-point autofocus
6fps continuous shooting
Full-HD video with manual control
3.2′ LCD

The upgrade was not as major as I thought it would be from the Mk ii but this really builds on the strengths of it’s predecessor.  In particular, the auto focus system which moves from 9 points to 61 point, a huge upgrade.  The Mk ii has always been the camera of choice for wedding photography but this move from 9 to 61 points makes the MK iii very handy for sports, much more versatile.  I liked the features of the 7D which have now been ported over to the new 5D but it lacked the full frame; important for portraits/weddings when maximum resolution and clean images are paramount.

Now released and retailing for £3000, body only I can’t wait to get my hands on this and test it out.

Stay tuned…
