Canon EOS 5D Mark III builds on the performance of the legendary EOS 5D Mark II, offering improved speed, stunning full frame high-resolution image, enhanced processing power and extended creative options for both stills and movies. A new 22.3 MP full-frame sensor offers the ideal balance of resolution for stills and Full HD movies and up to 6 fps shooting, whilst a 61-point High Density Reticular AF system and 63-zone metering provide greater speed, flexibility and accuracy. Powered by the high-performance DIGIC 5+ processing technology, the EOS 5D Mark III also features enhanced video functions, offering improved image quality alongside greater audio control – redefining creative possibilities for photographers and amateur videographers alike.

Capture high-quality images that are full of detail with a newly-developed 22.3 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and Canon's 14-bit DIGIC 5+ image processor. A full 24 x 36mm, the sensor captures 5784 x 3861 large individual 6.25 µm pixels and has a much-improved S/N ratio resulting in better images from the start. A new photodiode structure with an increased photoelectric conversion rate increases the sensor's sensitivity by approximately 2 stops over previous models, meaning higher ISOs with the lowest noise of any EOS digital camera.

With DIGIC 5+ Image Processor two 4-channel A/D converter, the EOS 5D Mark III comfortably handles a maximum full resolution speed of up to 6fps in bursts of 18 RAW images or over 16,000 JPEGs, without the need for additional accessories. Additionally, the sensor's advanced architecture offers a huge native ISO range of 100-25,600, expandable to 102,400, making it possible to capture clean, high quality pictures, even in extreme low-light conditions.

Focus quickly and accurately, even on off-center subjects, with a newly designed 61 point wide-area autofocus system. 41 cross-type points (five of which are extra sensitive double-cross type) ensure highly accurate tracking of moving objects. The customizable AF pre-sets helping the capture of traditionally challenging subjects, and providing additional reliability in situations where subject movement can be unpredictable.

Highly accurate exposures are provided by Canon’s acclaimed iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) metering system, which incorporates a 63-zone Dual-Layer sensor linked to each point of the AF system. Focus information gathered from the AF system is analyzed alongside color and luminance signals measured by the metering sensor itself, enabling the EOS 5D Mark III to deliver consistently accurate skin tones and excellent results in a wide range of shooting situations.

EOS 5D Mark III also features a new silent shooting mode that dramatically reduces the sound of the shutter and mirror, ensuring they can work quietly in the background. A continuous silent mode is also available, enabling photographers to capture faster-moving subjects without attracting attention.

Enjoy high quality 1080p Full HD video with EOS 5D Mark III, the new full-frame sensor combines with the vast processing power of DIGIC 5+ to improve image quality by virtually eradicating the presence of moiré, false color and other artefacts. It offers both All-I and IPB compression, supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile, and automatically splits files greater than 4GB (FAT specifications) for extended recording without interruption. The EOS 5D Mark III records digital stereo sound at 48KHz and offers manual control over audio level. A wind filter is also included. Sound can be recorded either through the internal monaural microphone or via an optional external microphone through the stereo mic input. Notably, the EOS 5D Mark III feature a built-in headphone jack for real-time audio monitoring during video capture.

The EOS 5D Mark III features a new Creative Photo button, which enables users to quickly select Picture Styles and capture multiple exposures, as well as offering direct access to the HDR shooting mode - preserve detail in highlight and shadow areas. In playback, pressing the Creative Photo button displays a new comparative playback function, displaying two images side-by-side to allow photographers to view, magnify and compare the quality of different exposures mid-shoot.

With EOS 5D Mark III camera's In-camera editing functions, you can begin your digital editing workflow before you arrive back home. Rate your images on a scale of one to five and compare two images simultaneously on screen. Use in-camera Raw processing to explore creative possibilities – such as black & white conversion and retrospective white balance.

The EOS 5D Mark III has been built to offer photographers easy-handling and robust build quality. Its lightweight, high-grade magnesium alloy body offers advanced weather proofing for protection against the elements, while the construction of the shutter has also been reinforced, with 150,000-cycle durability making it ideal for repeated, everyday use. An enhanced version of the Intelligent Viewfinder offers approximately 100% coverage, as well as an on-demand grid display via the built-in transparent LCD.

The 3.2-inch Clear View II LCD Wide (3:2) screen provides high quality framing and playback in all conditions. 1,040k-dot (Approx. 720 x 480 pixels) provide the resolution to accurately check image sharpness and focus, while the gapless structure design prevents reflections and protects against dust or scratches.

The EOS 5D Mark III accepts both Compact Flash Type I and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards in a dual card slot configuration. Three recording methods are supported: Record the same data to both cards, record different file sizes or types to each card, or automatically switch to the second card when the first card is full.
