The Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera is a full-frame 22.3MP DSLR featuring exceptional still image and movie 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-alloy 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.
Included with the camera is Canon's EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens. This zoom lens provides a versatile range of focal lengths, from wide angle to standard portrait length. It features Hybrid Image Stabilizer Technology for up to 4 stops reduction of both angular and shift-type camera shake. Image stabilization is also effective when shooting in the lens' 0.7x macro mode. With 2 Super-UD glass elements and 2 UD elements to reduce chromatic aberration and two distinct types of aspherical elements, images are sharp throughout the zoom range. Smooth, fast and accurate autofocus is provided by the Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and the lens' minimum focus distance is 1.25'. As an L-series lens, it is provided with weather sealing to protect it from dust, moisture and cold and fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces to resist smears and fingerprints.
