Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III

Announced Aug 20, 2007 •
21 megapixels | 3 screen | Full frame sensor

Welcome to real film, digitally. Incredible. This is a film camera that it's negative is a digital chip. I have always shot APS-c and never felt it ever matched my 35mm film.. I cannot believe I waited so long. It has restored my photography back to my normal. It looks like film.. really. Huge files, slows a bit when full of RAW - not as fast as my 70d or 50d.  With 100mm 2.0 Canon lens on it.. I get my depth of field back just like it was with my EOS 1N RS. Nick getting soaked yesterday in ...

This is my favorite camera, give sharp, colorful and pleasant images, perform very ell, quick response, easy conrtols (subjetive if yore an Nikon or Sony user ;)) is not an action camera, i mean, if you search a camera for sports the new Canon EOS 1DX, Nikon D4s or the Canon EOS 1D Mark III are more apropiate, the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III is a camera for studio or landsacapes, the portraits are great, the reproduction for archives are superb, I work on archaeology so we photograph a lot of ...

WEll this camera is a dream, yes is far from being perfect, but it works wonderfully, freat colors, great performanc, battery life, fast  AF, solid and acurate, better than previous versions, this camera deliver a decent buffer and processing speed for a FF 21mpcamera, 2 Digic III processors make a reat job, this camera is old, 7 years old, but stil a great performer, useful, surpases any pro spectative and performs as a real pro machine, is not so fast for sports, but for outdoor, wildlife, ...

if you are looking to film anying upscale like a small movie, youtube skit ect this is the camera for you, however to obtain any good footage you will need a good lens upward of $1000 otherwise you are not using the camera to it's full potential. if you are looking for a camera to get nice pictures with i would reccoment not getting this camera because it dose many of the same things that the mark II and I can do with only very minor tweaks that are not worth the price.

Having owned all the 1Ds and D bodies (still own the 1Ds2 and 3), I was disappointed that it was not significantly better than the Mk2. As far as my 2 cameras are concerned, the Mk2 has much, much less noise in the shadow areas. I only shoot at 100 ISO. If the Mk2 had microfocus adjustment I would (maybe) sell the Mk3. Problems: None

Had the Mk llls for 2 years and have no complaints, now lagging a bit behind Nikon in some respects, so it's now in the top two instead of the market leader. It is true what they say, to get the best from it you have to use Canons top lenses, I have settled for just three as I take mostly landscape images. 70-200 L 2.8 is usm. 24-105 L F4 is usm. 16-35 LMk ll 2.8. + the 1,4 L extender. Any rubbish images, is really my fault and not the cameras. The construction and image quality get 5. ...

I love my 1Ds2 but this camera is better in every way. I hesitated a long time to buy this camera due to all the problems with the AF and my belief that the 1D4 will be a blockbuster. It turns out that this camera has exceeded all my expectations and I got it slightly used for $4400 because of all the negativity. What a bargain! Ergonomics are a huge step forward, noise (lack thereof) is excellent, bracketing with 2-5 shots, shooting info mode is great and allows me to use the back f ...

Fabulous, well specified pro dslr with superb image quality, a great body and great features Problems: MASSIVELY and I mean MASSIVELY too expensive. It's simply not over twice as good as a 1D3 or 5DII, Canon need to rethink their pricing of the pro line.

For Stooopeed ANATAS, who doesn't even own or used a Canon SLR but put all ratings of new Canon cameras with "ones" (even unreleased ones) and put all Nikons with "fives". Modz you can delete this post if all other useless/baseless/invalid opinions are deleted also.

I did not expect to find the childish chat when I really wanted a serious outside of Canon experience or opinion. I could not be happier with the camera. Having owned many film and digital Nikon products I finally pitched them all and purchased a Mark II before this camera. The Mark III is a big step up in construction and image quality.
