This is the pinnacle of DSLRs right now. The first EOS 5D brought video recording to the world of DSLRs, and now the EOS 5D Mark III only improves itself — in just about everything. There’s a larger, better 1,040,000-dot 3.2-inch rear LCD, new Digic 5+ processor, 22.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, 61-Point High Density Reticular autofocus with 41 cross-types (all of which are borrowed from the 1D X), dual memory card slots (SD and CompactFlash) an extended ISO range of 50 to 102,400 (100 to 25,600, natively, for epic night shots), OVF with 100 percent coverage (versus 98, previously), and a maximum 6 FPS burst speed (good stuff!).
Obviously then, the 5D Mark III is no slouch taking strong video: it can capture h.264 footage at HD resolutions up to 1080 at 24/25/30p or 720 at 50/60p, with an effective ISO range (in that mode) of 100-128,000 — and of course there’s a stereo mic input for the microphone of your choice as well as a headphone jack (!), which has never been seen on an EOS 5D camera before.
All of this will cost the pro photographer $3,500 for the body only when it comes out later in March. PR after the break.
