Canon 5D Mark III

March 03, 2012

I'm so excited that Canon has announced the most anticipated DSLR, the 5D Mark III.  I've just put my pre-order in and hope to get one at the end of March.

Here are the Key Features:

  • 22.3 Megapixel full-frame sensor
  • 61-point autofocus
  • Up to 6fps continuous shooting
  • Native ISO 100-25,600 sensitivity
  • Full HD video with manual control
  • 14-bit DIGIC 5+ processor
  • Enhanced Weather sealing
  • 8.11cm (3.2-inch) 1,040,000-dot screen
  • Built-In HDR and Multiple Exposure Modes
  • Dual CF and SD Memory Card Slots

I'm happy that the new 5D Mark III will use the same battery (LP-E6)  as the 5D Mark II and 7D, which both I have.  No need to buy new batteries.  The 5D Mark III will only be sold as a (Body Only), $3,500.00 USD or as a kit with the 24-105mm f/4.0L USM lens, $4,300.00 USD.
