Canon 5D mark III new full-size

Shortly after the announced models D4 and D800's main rival Nikon, Canon gave they answer. What to tell the truth was not the complete answer, but the second part of the series releases the brand that started even before the aforementioned releases from Nikon, with I am not mistaken, the C300 (and EOS Cinema System, aimed at recording in 4K resolution) through 1D X, and culminating in the new objective PowerShot G1X (I have already given reasons to buy it). Now finally, the long awaited camera that nobody knew whether it was officially christened 7D or 5D mark III mark II, and a host of new accessories (flash-end RT-600EX, the battery grip BG-E11, a transmitter data, a wireless flash trigger and, whew!, a GPS receiver). Check out the new professional accessories here.

The specifications are that the site Canon Rumors published yesterday (by the way the photos came out there were apparently true):

    22.3 megapixel sensor, full-size (36 x 24mm)
    61 focus points AF (with 41 cross-type, with 05 double cross)
    continuous shooting with silent mode and maximum rate of 6 fps
    native ISO sensitivity from 100 to 25,600 (expandable to 50 [L] to 102,400 [H2])
    Full HD video in H.264 format with manual audio controls (64 levels)
    DIGIC 5 + 14-bit
    Viewfinder with 100% coverage
    Increased sealing against dust and water
    LCD monitor 3.2 "and 1.04 million points, the same 1D X
    HDR mode with presets

What can I say? The fight is good, very good! Canon is fighting on all fronts, from compact cameras to purely amateur (but with GPS!) Models the jack-of-all-trades, made for seasoned pros, and even investing in funding for film and how it's cliche to say, but it is always true, is that users end up winning, having more options, and there is only looking at what to do, which you can purchase and choose the most interesting alternative in terms of cost-effective.

But without doubt one of the coolest things I found this last release (say, a camera, as reported both accessories) that is maintained in 22.3 megapixels, slightly surpassing the 21.1 of 5D mark II, against the Nikon (who preferred 35MPs put more of the D800) and Sigma, which had the temerity to launch compact with 46MP (!). The same philosophy applied in G1X (with its 14MP, 10 against the G12, the sensor 6 times less) and SX40 (12MP vs. 14 the SX30).

Another thing that will undoubtedly appeal is in full photometry, which now follows the same system of measurement 7D, 60D and the T2i and T3i, called iFCL (Intelligent Focus Color Luminosity) metering sensor with 63 zones and double layer (red / green and green / blue). In practice this means the reduction of measurement errors that occurred in the predecessor, which is more than welcome, since even the entrance of the Canon cameras already come with such a system, while the 5D mark II (which is a level just below the so-called flagship) had not.

Another development was the natural change of focus system, which despite seeming glaring leap of nine AF points to 61 points, was not much, since the 7D has 19 points, and as the 5D is made not only to enable video recording, but do it with quality that meets health professionals, the increase is understandable points, especially the cross-type, for the best maintain focus when shooting.

Sample images and videos of the 5D III can be seen in the Japanese website of the brand.

Get even with the Press Release of the Canon 5D mark III.
