The New Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera – Some Reflections by Scott Robarge

In March 1987 – 25 years ago — Canon debuted one of the most significant breakthroughs in modern camera technology with the launch of its award-winning EOS system, consisting of the EOS 650 SLR camera and three interchangeable EF lenses.  The EOS system was lauded by critics, professional and amateur photographers for its advanced technology and ability to capture memorable images thanks to its combination of speed and handling.

Canon also set a new standard by incorporating state of the art digital technology with the release of the EOS D30 camera in 2000.  Canon’s interchangeable EF lens series are now the industry standard, featuring Ultrasonic Motor (USM), Image Stabilization (IS), Sub-wavelength Structure (SWC) anti-reflection and multi-layered diffractive optical (DO) elements.

I am very excited to hear about the recent release of the new EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera.  It is designed as an upgrade from the EOS 5D Mark II and an alternative to Canon’s top-of-the-line professional EOS-1D X model.  The EOS 5D Mark III delivers extraordinary image quality, because of a new 22.3-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, a high-performance DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor, a 61-point High Density Reticular Autofocus (AF) System and six frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting speed.  Videographers are going to be impressed by the noise reduction, extended recording times and built-in headphone jack for sound monitoring.

From professional photographers to entry-level photo fans, the eagerly anticipated new EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR camera continues the proud tradition of innovation that began twenty-five years ago when Canon first launched its EOS system.

Over the coming weeks and months, Scott Robarge dot net will be featuring some of my favorite outdoor photographs, I hope you come back and share your thoughts and feedback.
