Special optical technologies like 61-Point High Density Reticular AF and extended ISO range of 100-25600 [expandable to 50 (L), 51200 (H1) and 102400 (H2)] makes it ideal for shooting weddings, in the studio, out in the field and great for still photography. Professional-level high definition video capabilities include a host of industry-standard recording protocols and enhanced performance making it possible to capture beautiful cinematic movies in EOS HD quality.

A 22.3 Megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, Canon DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, and shooting performance up to 6.0 fps provide exceptional clarity and sharpness when capturing rapidly-unfolding scenes. Additional technological advancements include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Multiple Exposure. A firmware update has been released which enables the camera to export clean, uncompressed HDMI output to an external recorder, while still being able to record to internal CF or SD cards and monitor the video on rear LCD display. Combined with an improved color sampling, the firmware update adds efficiency to video editing, improves color grading options and enhances on-set monitoring.

The only minor flaws referred to is that it’s a little noisy on long exposures. Also, it was considered a minus point that some lost couple of frames per second – say 8 vs 6.

Overall, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is highly recommended value for money Digital SLR Camera to create photographic masterpieces for its versatility and functionality and is backed with 1 year limited warranty.
