If you photograph weddings, parties, or people in general, this is the camera for you.Gizmodo80Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review: The Best DSLR for ShThe refinements just make it a vastly better tool for photographers and videographers. The autofocus system alone is enough to justify choosing the Mark III over the Mark II. But it's all of the refinements—the sum of the Mark III's parts—that make it the best camera you can spend $3,500 on.Engadget90Canon EOS 5D Mark III field reviewIif you've been considering a 5D Mark III purchase, don't hesitate -- it's worth the investment, we promise. And if you've already placed your order or have one in the mail, get ready to have your world turned upside-down -- this thing is simply amazing, in every way.Imaging Resource80Canon EOS 5D Mark III ReviewThe Canon 5D Mark III is a true "superstar" camera, with impressive capabilities for both still and video shooting. It suits the needs of well-heeled amateurs and working pros equally well, and while its resolution is only very slightly higher than that of the 5D Mark II, the Canon 5D Mark III offers so many improvements over its predecessor that it'll be an easy upgrade decision for many 5D Mark II owners.CNET Asia80Canon EOS 5D Mark IIIIt's clear that Canon sought to address past user concerns of the 5D Mark II in this new version. Not only does the 5D Mark III feature a more ergonomic build, the camera also delivers stellar still image and video quality while offering superb high-ISO performance.Reviewed.com Cameras90Canon EOS 5D Mark IIIThe recently announced Canon EOS 5D Mark III steps up as the long-awaited successor to the Canon 5D Mark II. ... the 5D Mark III is an important update to bring Canon’s pro line up to speed with more sophisticated video integration, faster shooting, and improved autofocus.TechRadar90Canon EOS 5D Mark III reviewImage quality throughout the native sensitivity range is excellent, noise is well controlled and there's plenty of detail. The AF system has been given a serious upgrade on what the Canon EOS 5D Mark II version has, and it puts in an excellent performance.Camera Labs90Canon EOS 5D Mark III previewUltimately I reckon the EOS 5D Mark III is the camera the 5D Mark II really deserved to be. Sure it's still a full-frame camera with 1080p video, but one that's now backed-up by very respectable AF, continuous shooting, composition, bracketing and the promise of superior build.Photography Blog90Canon EOS 5D Mark III ReviewIt may not be so revolutionary as its predecessor, but in almost every way the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is a better camera, proving there's plenty of life left in the DSLR format.USA Today80Canon 5D Mark III is hard to find but worth itThe Mark III overall is a great leap forward. With the much sharper photos and low-light breakthroughs, I can learn new buttons.

For video In tight spots where you are recording the sound separately (using XLR connections) you'll be fine. For anything more than that, unless you are shooting a wedding, I would not recommend using as your main video camera.If you are buying the 5D for stills and an occasional family videoâ€¦PERFECT. I love shooting stills with this camera. It isn't quite as rugged as I'd like it to be, but nonetheless, it's a great camera for shooting stills.Engadget Reader100August 9, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The Canon 5D Mark III is a Canon 5D Mark II with the AF system of the top-of-th-line 1Dx and the speed and ergonomics of the 7D. Right now this is probably the most balanced professional/prosumer DSLR with a removable battery grip out there.Unless you have very specific reasons to look at a different model - e.g. price considerations (chose the Mk II or a 6D) or the need for an ultra high pixel count (chose the D800) - this is the DSLR for you.Engadget Reader90February 7, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Otherwise I love this camera and it's a great upgrade from the Mark II for a variety of features - ISO performance, better LCD, electronic level, better menu interface, better build quality, etc.Engadget Reader90March 21, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I bought this for the better low light performance but was very pleasantly surprised by the other changes over the Mark II. The new autofocus system is extraordinary and has already prompted, after just a couple of hours, a change in my way of working which previously has been the same since before autofocus even existed. I never found all those focus points useful until now. Video controls are now more intuitive and sensible, the screen is a huge improvement, viewfinder overlay a massive step up, endless customisations mean I can make my camera the way I want it and can use it without thinking.Congrats to Canon for being brave enough not to keep trying to stuff more and more megapixels in and focus on image quality. It is quite extraordinary how much it keeps improving.Criticisms: the shutter release is very light on mine, I am accidentally shooting pics. I will get used to it I guess but would prefer if it was the same as the Mark II which I will keep on using. The image zoom has changed, annoying for the same reason. Little things, so far at least.Overall I love it. The big, obvious, objection: absolutely crazy price. If I didn't need it for a project right now I would wait, and I suspect many others will do so. It's not twice as good as the Mark II but it's nearly twice as expensive. Silly.UPDATE: almost 1000 shots in and still loving it. I occasionally switch back to my mk2 and the thing I notice instantaneously is the autofocus. I love the new multiple focus points and the ease of moving between them. I love them changing when I change the camera orientation. Focus accuracy seems better although still a long way from perfect and I have been manually focussing quite a lot.Trigger still a little too light for me, tends to underexpose a bit (the Mk2 did this too) and not very consistent exposure even on consecutive frames. Silent mode a bit of a winner too - so far haven't woken the baby - and the increased lag is not really significant. The LCD is a big improvement too - not that I care really (brought up on film, not desperate to check every shot) - but other people like looking and it does a nice job. Some of the new controls are annoying - I quite liked zooming the view the way it used to work, now much less intuitive. Oh, and did I say? Sometimes the small things are the most important. The mode dial locks into position. You have to press the button in the middle to move it. Praise be for that simple change.
