From Canon’s revered EOS range of high performance DSLR cameras comes the Canon EOS 5D Mark III that improves on the 5D Mark II. It has a dedicated 63-zone metering sensor, improved 3.2" multi-coated and reflection resistant rear LCD, superimposed display intelligent viewfinder, and dual CF/SDHC memory card slots. A few other notable additions are an updated menu layout, Auto ISO improvements, in-camera HDR options, and the side-by-side image comparison playback mode. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is sure to provide a higher sense of purpose for the most demanding and dedicated photographers.

22.3MP Full-Frame Sensor and DIGIC 5+ Processor

Based around a full-frame 22.3MP sensor driven by Canon’s DIGIC 5+ processor, the Canon 5D Mark III has an extended ISO range of 100–25600 expandable to 50 (L), 51200 (H1) and 102400 (H2). Working through a 36 x 24 mm full frame CMOS image sensor, this lens is capable of capturing high quality images at an incredibly high resolution with a supported aspect ratio of 3:2. These settings will be extremely helpful in cases where you will need to shoot images under varying lighting conditions.

61 point high-density reticular AF
In this camera it is also possible to change the AF points such that you get focus on different areas of the subject. The 61 point focus with the high density reticular AF mode is highly effective for drama shots and creative shots that may require depth of field effects or simple macro.

Improved Video Features
From a video standpoint, the 5D 3 features some significant improvements. While it still has the standard 1080/30p, it can also record at 720/60p, improved All i-frame and IPB compression options, and a maximum clip length to 29 minutes, 59 seconds without fear of overheating.

Audio Options
The image sensor and processor also combine to help minimize the rolling shutter effect that plagues many video-enabled SLRs. Top it off with built-in audio monitoring through the headphone jack and audio-level adjustment via the now touch-sensitive rear dial, and you’ve got a greatly improved but familiar HDSLR that can be used to shoot anything in its way.

Continuous Shooting Mode
This camera is capable of shooting images at a high speed and frame rate of 6 frames per second. This will be ideal for sports based photography, action shots and also for shots that require you to capture images in sequence.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
