Canon Australia’s Product Manager for DSLRs, Chris Macleod said, “The EOS-1Ds Mark III represents a complete reappraisal of what professional D-SLR photography has become. As we mark Canon’s 70th anniversary and 20 years of EOS, it is fitting that we celebrate our leadership position by introducing the best of the best.”
According to Canon, its 21.1 mega pixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor is able to capture ultra-fine detail never seen before in a DSLR. Moreover, its Dual DiG!C III Image Processors ensures superb detail, high-speed image processing and 14-bit Analogue-to-Digital conversion for fine colour gradation. The flexibility to simultaneously capture both RAW and JPEG files types (including sRAW) vastly enhances the camera capabilities.
The EOS-1Ds Mark III is able to capture 21.1 megapixel images at a rate of five frames per second in a continuous burst up to 56 shots. Additional enhanced functionality includes a 45-pont AF system (including 19 cross-type AF points and 26 assist AF points), high shutter speed of up to 1/8000 second and high speed flash synchronisation speed of 1/250 second, and selectable ISO speeds from 100-1600 with ISO expansion to 50 and 3200 via a Custom Function, to ensure this camera offers the best performance available in any D-SLR.
With 57 Custom Functions available, operation of the EOS-1Ds Mark III can be tailored to suit the photographer’s individual preference. The addition of two Live View functions allows photographers to preview images in real time on the 3.0 inch LCD or an external monitor to achieve precise image composition and focusing.
Built for the demands of the toughest environments, the EOS-1Ds Mark III also has a strong and reliable magnesium alloy body with over 70 dust and moisture resistant seals. The EOS Integrated Cleaning System reduces dust on the sensor ensuring uncompromised results.
