Canon 5D Mark III Key Specifications

The Canon 5D Mark III.

Canon has just announced the long-awaited successor to the 5D Mark II: the 5D Mark III. In digital camera terms, the 5DII was getting quite old for a dSLR. Launched in 2008, the 5DII revolutionized photography by being the first camera to offer full HD video while continuing the tradition of high image quality at a reasonable price began with the original 5D in 2005.

Building on the success of the 5DII, Canon has offered improvements in many categories that are sure to make many current Canon shooters look to update and some non-users consider jumping ship.
