Description

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III builds on the performance of its predecessor the EOS 5D Mark II, offering improved speed, resolution and processing power which helps enable photographers to capture fantastic stills and movies.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III features a newly developed 22.3 Megapixel full-frame sensor which provides optimum resolution balance for stills and video. With its advanced DIGIC 5+ processing power, the 5D Mark III gives photographers enhanced imaging and video functions which allows them to work quickly and creatively. With up to 6 frames per second (fps) shooting, the 5D Mark III offers extensive creative possibilities without having to add extra accessories to achieve the maximum speed.

The EOS 5D Mark III delivers brilliant picture quality no matter what the lighting conditions. Thanks to an ISO 100-25,600 sensitivity range (extendable to ISO 102,400) the user can keep shooting hand-held even after the sun goes down. Canon's advanced 61-point AF System (the same design as the EOS 1D X) with 41 cross-type points, 5 dual cross-type points and customisable AF pre-sets to provide sharp detail across the frame.

Enjoy high quality Full HD video at 1080p resolution with variable frames rates ranging from 24fps to 50/60fps. Also give your video a high quality sound with its ability to record digital stereo sound at 48KHz and offers manual control over audio level. A standard 3.5mm mic socket enables the use of third-party microphones; a headphone socket permits audio monitoring while recording.
