Editor's Review

Canon has done it again with the EOS-1D Mark III, the latest iteration of their EOS line, and the fastest digicam on the market to date. This ultra-advanced digital SLR features 10 megapixels and Canon's Dual DIGIC III processors, which provide super-sharp photos and ultra-fast advanced operation. Plenty of features make this camera worth upgrading to: 63-zone exposure metering, Live View Mode, ISO sensitivity to 3200, and a brilliant wide-angle LCD are just some of the highlights. The dust and moisture-sealed magnesium body is fairly similar to the Mark II N, but features some new buttons and a larger screen, as well as a more user-friendly layout. This camera features a customizable My Menu option for storing often-used settings, making it easy to access the full creative control in your hands.

Canon EOS 1D Mk. III Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

  • 5.0 out of 5
top notch! (N.Scott Trimble — 03/04/2009)

Fast and Accurate. The tracking does well for me, I haven't had too many complaints, just wish the focusing screen was as good as film when I don't want autofucus. Lighter too.

Fine Machine (Kent Sievers — 02/13/2009)

Wonderful camera. Fast, great in low light, I can play this thing like a fine musical instrument. Set the camera to silent mode and it's even pretty darn quiet. Best camera I've used in my 30-plus year career.
