Rated 2 out of 5 by from Electrical Problem The first Canon Camera I have owned in 25 years of owning them that had to be sent back for repair

Rated 1 out of 5 by from junk, didn't last 2 years and it quit working I think its time to try Nikon, my third canon camera and I had problems with each.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of hot pixels, otherwise good camera. Lots of hot pixels, otherwise good camera. When shooting in RAW+JPEG you will not notice many hot pixels, but when looking at the RAW files it looks as if someone had spilled glitter all over the photo because of all the hot pixels. I'm not sure why this is the case, maybe that is what happens when cameras get old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have had a 5D Mk2 for 2 yrs and love the camera. However I just purchased a MK3 and I am amazed at the upgrades to almost all features and setting on the unit. This is truly a fast focus and metering GIANT, with more pixels easier controls, locking mode selector, everything is better. The menu access, shooting settings, are all well thought out and engineered. Very impressive camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Balanced Canon Full-Frame to Date This is my review of the Canon 5D Mark III. This camera is one of the most professional, versatile, fast and powerful full frame DSLRs on the market. In this review, my goal is to focus more on how great this camera functions and why it is considered in my opinion the complete package compared to other Canon bodies.BUILD QUALITYWhen you first pick up a 5D Mark III, you will immediately notice how this camera is built and feels like a tank. This body is made out of a much stronger material called magnesium alloy. Compared to other DSLR's on the market, this body feels much more professional, refined, and advanced. It is much more damage resistance and weather resistant as well.FULL FRAME SENSORFirst, one of the best functions of this camera that surpasses most DSLR's on the market is that this camera is built with a full frame or near 35mm equivalent sensor. Most DSLRs on the market are sold with APS-C or other cropped sensors, providing more focal length while sacrificing image quality (reducing the amount of light to the sensor), especially in low light situations and environments. The image quality of a full frame sensor among APS - C, APS - H, Micro 4/3rds produce night and day results for professional quality images. The image quality with the 5D Mark III compared to other models is even noticeable in the color rendering of each image. There are even differences in color rendering between the 5D Mark III and the Canon 6D, two individual full frame cameras. I'm not sure all the technical reasons why this is the case, but I think it has something to do with the Digic 5+ processors. the 5D Mark III color is a much richer, where is the 6D images tend to be slightly washed out or lacking full vibrancy.FRAMES PER SECONDThe second function that I enjoy a lot about the 5D Mark III is that it can shoot a healthy and fast 6 frames per second. Consider for a second that most APS-C bodies shoot anywhere from 3 to four and a half frames per second on average. Excluding the Canon 1DX for a moment, Canon’ full frame lineup is limited to only the 6D, 5DS and 5DSR. The 6D only produces 4.5 frames per second and both the 5DS and 5DSR only produce 5 frames per second. The amazingly fast Canon 7D Mark II, which was recently released early last year comes equipped with 10 frames per second, but it does not meet my standards non longer because it's an APS-C camera. Without having to spend big money and have the added weight and size of a battery pack of a pro camera like the 1DX, The Canon 5D Mark III is still a clear winner regarding frames per second because it has the best balance to capture most subjects fast and sharp.SILENT CONTINUOUS MODEOne of the functions that might be underrated or underestimated and DSLR's today is the silent continuous mode, which I enjoy a lot to use. there are some situations where using high continuous mode makes the shutter sound very annoying to others nearby. Other nonprofessional cameras don't normally have this silent continuous mode where I can shoot at a maximum of 3 frames per second, but about 75% quieter than normal. You can still shoot great pictures and maintain the element of surprise toward your subjects.AUTO-FOCUS SYSTEMThe 5D Mark III still has one of the best autofocusing systems currently today. While 61 AF points may not be the most compared to other competitor bodies, what really matters to me is the accuracy and the speed and how this AF system reacts to multiple subjects. For this camera body, you have six different autofocus ‘cases’ that you can choose from and adjust for the appropriate shooting situation. Most cameras don't have ‘cases’. You can shoot from a single point to a 61-point AF all cross-type. It is very responsive and I would say personally that is about 97 to 98% accurate depending on what you're shootingISO RANGECompared to most Canon bodies, the Canon 5D Mark III still has one of the best ISO range systems for light sensitivity. In my opinion, the 1DX, 5D Mark III, and the 6D can produce the best image quality results with both higher ISO ranges combined with their full frame sensors. Compared to two other major competitors, Canon's full-frame lineup does need to catch up in the ISO department.I do wish the 5D Mark III had a higher mega pixel sensor, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi and an electronic view finder. For those, who say that is not necessary, check what the market is producing.The 5D Mark III still commands much respect and it will continue to be my go to camera hopefully for years to come or when its successor arrives.Thank you for reading!
