Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III (Body Only) review: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III (Body Only)

 

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III (Body Only)

Very low noise, high quality images; 21.1 megapixels; live view shooting; pro-level build-quality and performance.

High price tag; heavy body; no AF in live view mode.

The 1Ds Mark III marks another high-end success for Canon, though you'll need a lot of spare cash if you want to own this ground-breaking camera.

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital camera review

Canon started from scratch with the Mark III. And that is obvious with the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III. It is much more than a Mark II with a new image sensor. There has been thorough thought about the whole camera and the entire structure has been altered...

Canon's EOS-1Ds Mark III; The Big Kahuna Has Landed

 

Twenty-one megapixels. Think about it. Once the exclusive domain of those Tiffany-priced medium format digital backs, that same kind of high-end resolution is now possible with a D-SLR, albeit an expensive one. While it has the same $7999 price as its...

Canon's EOS-1Ds Mark II The Digital SLR Big Shot

 

8-megapixel digital camera dashed. I went right back to carrying a film camera along with my digital SLR on my travels

There are five of these, but I stuck with Evaluative, with AE lock for most of my work, a holdover from my old slide shooting days. I have come to trust this mode just as I usually like to shoot in Program exposure mode with Shift, which I find gives...
