My Best DSLR Camera Reviews The Canon EOS 5D Mark 3
The Canon eos 5d Mark 3 is a great camera with a bunch of features. I’ll stick to the ones that I really understand. Multiple exposure control is a nice feature turning a DSLR into an old school SLR film camera. Now through in the digital age part and you can shoot in RAW and Jpeg modes. This simply means that the RAW photos can be edited while still on the camera. Change the light fix the resolution and do the general editing of your photo right from the camera. This is a nice feature but did not win me over. What did win me over about the Canon eos 5d Mark 3 was the high speed continuous shooting. This is a fantastic feature, if you know anything about the Canon brand their cameras are designed to really take some great shots and high speed action shots are a nice touch. Really a nice touch is an understatement. Clear action pictures means no more missing the kids’ first steps or playing at the park.
Magnesium body makes it feel rather tough, but I still would not want to drop it. They did a great job with the Canon eos 5d Mark 3 with the self-cleaning sensor. If you have experience with film cameras the you’re going to remember that from time to time you had to clean the mirrors inside. (Perhaps one of the most nerve racking things you could do with your camera at the time) The self-cleaning sensor takes that stress away and cleans itself of dust. (Not that I would want to crack open my digital camera anyway) But no dust mean no little dots on your photos, this is great and providing you remember to take the lens cap off taking pictures is really easy. Something to remember, it is weather resistant, no water proof. Yes it can get splashed with a little water, but it cannot get soaking wet.
Viewfinder and the monitor, the viewfinder is great but I find myself using the monitor screen a lot more than the viewfinder. (one of those upgrades in technology) The view finder offers, well, a great view of things and the color is good, but the monitor offers such a nice bright display that as I said, I do not use the view finder like you would in a film camera.
The features that still work great but I still do not fully understand; it has an auto correction for light, and distortion. These work well, and it is nice the correction part for light is great, but there are times that I am looking to have a shadowed picture for a reason, yes you can shut it off, but I often forget. Auto picture for the Canon eos 5d Mark 3 is another nice feature that I under use. It is much like the light correction, take a dull faded looking color and it amps it up. In total this Canon camera is great and would make a fantastic by for anyone that is looking to break into the field between semipro and pro.
