Kier, Reading

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Amazing camera, though somewhat eclipsed now by the Nikon D3. Altogether great except...
Bad points:
... the AF system, which is utterly, utterly hopeless. With no word from Canon regarding a fix, I could not recommend this camera to anyone.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
brilliant handling,amazing focus speed,battery does what it says on the package,the 10fps is seriously effective,love the sensor cleaning,very effective lcd monitor,very very good in low light. Overall a wonderful piece of kit in this price range can it get better ??
Bad points:
live view is a bit of a gimmick , for wild life photgraphy - forget it, unable to get a screen for the lcd monitor-this is a must as very susceptible to scratching/marks etc,hve taken already some 6000+ shots and not sure if image quality is as good as the 5D and wether the images r just a little soft,might be lens aswell ? price was expensive.

Clive, Milton Keynes

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Brief comments only, any serious buyer will know this products pedigree... As an experienced ID user I found this product simple to adjust to. The good points - quicker manipulation of functions compared to the EOS 1D MKii & MKiiN. Enhansed ISO functionality is superb, perfect for indoor use without flash. Being a pro sports tog this is a particularily welcome improvement over the predecessor.
Bad points:
I've yet to find it...! Cost is always an issue but given the built quality, finish and reliability etc, it has to be a slight one to be honest. The 1Ds are expensive however they are robust, reliable and highly resistant to adverse weather conditions, it's the old story - you get what you pay....

10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
Canon’s APS-H size (28.1 × 18.7 mm) CMOS sensor combines superb colour rendering with a wide dynamic range. Its inherent low-noise characteristics ensure smooth results at high sensitivities. A low pass filter and on-chip circuitry suppress moiré and remaining noise.

10 fps, 110 frame burst
The camera delivers 10 frames per second for a continuous burst of up to 110 Large JPEGs or 30 RAW images.

Dual “DIGIC III” processors
Dual “DIGIC III” processors work in parallel to process images at 14 bits for a total reproduction range of 16,384 tones per pixel. These fast and efficient processors also drive the camera’s shooting performance and near-instant response times. Start-up is just 0.2 milliseconds.

Wide-area AF with 19 cross type points
A high precision AF system employs 19 cross type points with sensitivity up to f/2.8, spread out across the AF area to accommodate off-centre subjects. 26 AF assist points aid AF tracking for increased accuracy.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System

Canon’s built-in dust prevention and cleaning system works to keep the sensor clean. A combination of technologies reduces, repels and removes dust and includes a Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit that shakes dust from the sensor with each power on.

Wide ISO Range

A wide 100 to 3200 ISO range as standard is expandable to L:50 and H:6400.

3.0" LCD with Live View mode

The bright 3.0" TFT LCD provides pin-sharp definition for checking focus and composition, with 10x magnification for finer details. When shooting from awkward positions, Live View mode gives you the option of framing your image from the LCD.

Picture Style
Picture Style presets provide easy control over image processing parameters. Each style offers a different colour response – similar to the way film types are changed to achieve different effects. Sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation are adjustable within each preset.

Weather sealed, magnesium alloy body
A magnesium alloy body with dust and moisture resistant sealing protects the EOS-1D Mark III from harsh weather and the rigours of daily use. Shutter reliability is a durable 300,000 cycles.

EOS system compatibility
The EOS-1D Mark III is compatible with all EF lenses (excl. EF-S lenses) and EX Series Speedlite flash units. Untethered shooting and image transfer are available with the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2.
