The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera (Body Only) is a full-frame 22.3MP DSLR featuring exceptional still image and move recording capabilities. Integrating Canon's new DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and 14-bit A/D conversion, this camera is able to produce superbly detailed imagery with immense low-light sensitivity that is further aided by an extended ISO range up to 102400. Image quality is further enhanced by the new 61-point high density reticular autofocus, including up to 41 cross-type AF points and 5 dual diagonal AF points for ensured sharpness. iFCL metering works in conjunction with the AF system and uses color information from scenes to produce accurate exposure readings using a 63 zone dual-layer metering sensor. HDR and Multiple Exposure modes provide greater creative opportunities and help you to reduce the amount of post-production time needed to produce high quality imagery. The 5D Mark III is also capable of recording full HD video with manual exposure control and in multiple frame rates, including 1080/30p and 720/60p. Still images can also be recorded up to 6fps.
Image review is possible using the 1,040,000-dot 3.2" Clear View II LCD monitor, which features a high-transparency, reflection resistant multi-coating for adequate viewing under bright conditions. The Intelligent Viewfinder also integrates a superimposed LCD providing you with exposure information and features a 100% field of view.
A highly durable magnesium-allow body surrounds the components and offers increased dust and weather resistance. An updated EOS Integrated Cleaning system also helps to reduce and remove dust within the camera body. Several of the physical controls on the camera body are fully customizable for a more efficient workflow and more convenient handling scheme. Dual CF and SD memory card support also increases the compatibility of the camera. Support is also provided for the optional Canon Wireless File Transmitter and GPS receiver for remote logging, tracking, and sending of your imagery.

This camera was better than I was expecting and as good as I'd hoped. The image quality is basically the same as the 5D Mark II, but everything is has improved significantly. I won't go into detail but one thing I will say is that the focusing system is what makes this purchase so worth it, especially since I shoot with very wide apertures.
Lastly, as I mention in all my reviews here, the service given by Flash Camera installs nothing but confidence. I simply won't purchase from anywhere else. If you want to buy, buy here. Enough said.

We have purchased our professional gear from Flash Camera over the years and have always had exceptional service. The Canon 5d mk iii is an amazing camera after upgrading from the mk ii. It is a solid build quality and slight changes in the hand grip make it even firmer to hold. The image quality makes enough difference to make the upgrade worth and the dual card slots 1 x CF and 1 x SD are great for image backup or video on one and stills on the other. Overall another great product from Canon sold by Flash Camera.

Only had the camera a couple of weeks and still getting to know all about it. Whether I will fully understand all the options is another matter - especially the auto focus !! Went mad and as a retirement present to myself and bought the 24-70 f2,8 mkii as well. Brilliant combination and a major step up from my 40D. Hope to have many happy years together.
Excellent price and fast and efficient service from Flash Camera.

After living with this for a fortnight, here are my initial impressions after a couple of shoots. Build quality - this is one very tough and heavy body. Features - there are no quick and dirty "modes" like you would see on a consumer camera, but you can create your own, if you have the patience to read the manual. Image Quality - the full frame sensor behind my 24-70 L lens is giving great detail and the pictures are sharp all the way to the edge. Focus - this is the best part, the autofocusing system is truly superb and highly configurable. I am shooting outdoor sports on full manual at 2.0 and 1/640; with 1/3 stop bracketing continuous drive and AI servo; since I got the optimum settings of case 4 and centre cross, not one of the ~100 shots so far has been anything other than perfect focus.

I've recently upgraded from an aged 30D to the 5DIII. It's like night and day. What an amazing machine. Computer that takes pictures would be my summary. But oh, what pictures! The 23+M pixel sensor is so noise-free, the detail is heart-stopping.
Can't recommend this highly enough. You've got the rest of your life to justify this purchase, but those photos need to be taken TODAY...don't hesitate.
Flash Camera...fantastic. Use them. Really.

A great camera with an amazing autofocus system.
Focus points are a little bunched up in the middle tho.
It's an expensive bit of gear but the folks here are probably the best for price and service.

Upgraded from a 5D Mark ii to the Mark iii and it's a worthy upgrade. Fantastic AF, great build quality, such a solid camera.
Great service from Flash Camera too.

Ever since I got my first digital DSLR I wanted a full frame version, having gone through a couple of 'crop' sensor Canon's I have finally got a full frame camera. The 5D3 is superb, the auto focus is amazing and the 'out of the body' pictures stunning. Very little post processing is needed to produce great pictures.
The service from Flash Camera was superb as always!
