Living with the CANON EOS 5D MkIII – Part 1

After a long wait, that seemed to last forever, and a trip to KwaZulu-Natal with a CANON EOS 5D MkII, an experience I will blog about in weeks to come, I finally received the infamous CANON EOS 5D MkIII.

You can read about my first impressions based on the BETA version here. This production version is a different beast though, it is just better. It continuously continues to surprise and baffle me with it’s prowess to perform in any conditions I through at it.

The most surprising of the lot are it’s ability to level out night and day for a handheld shot…
It ability to give a good result at ISO12800 with reasonably controlled noise allowing you to shoot scenes, like the one bellow, handheld is just near unbelievable.

Truthfully, I would not do this every day but having the ability to do it should the need arise is most probably the most surprising plus of the CANON EOS 5D MkIII.
