Now that winter is behind us, the flowers are blooming, and the kids are heading off to soccer games. It is a great time to consider picking up a new camera to capture all the spring and summer fun that is around the corner, and the new Canon 5D Mark III
($4,299) is the one of the best cameras on the market.
Introduced earlier this month, the 5D Mark III is the newest Canon digital camera to deliver professional quality still shots and video. With the $4k+ price tag, this camera is not for everyone, but for photographers that are serious about their cameras, this camera truly delivers some of the best images you can possibly imagine.
Canon fans are more than aware of the capabilities that the Mark II had, but even as nice as its predecessor was, the Mark III is even better.
A big reason for why the Mark III is able to take such life like pictures is its 22.3 megapixels. The camera's ISO range can be extended all the way up to 102400 which allows it to take excellent quality images even in dark settings. For high action shooting, such as sporting events, Canon boosted the camera's capability for continuous shots to 6 per second, up from 3.9 frames in the previous model.
The video capability is also very impressive, and it has the ability to shoot high definition video in either 1080p or 720p. Videos are shot up to 30 frames per second. One of the biggest problems people have when recording videos with other digital cameras is the adjusting settings while recording. This can sometimes interfere with the audio since you can hear the user making his adjustments, but that will not be a problem with the Mark III due to a new touchscreen for quick and silent setting adjustments.
While this camera is definitely not for the novice photographer, serious photographers now have a new choice for capturing the best pictures and videos possible.
