To mark the 25th anniversary of the revolutionary EOS system, Canon has announced the EOS 5D Mark II.
EOS 5D Mark III has a 22-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor that supports ISO 100 through ISO 25600 in standard mode. It can also be set to ISO 50, ISO 51200, and ISO 102400. You can capture Raw images at the full 22-megapixel as well as at 10.5-megapixel and 5.5-megapixel resolutions if desired.
The Mark III’s performance benefits from Canon’s latest on-chip noise reduction in both still and video modes.
With regard to video, the new EOS supports multiple HD formats, all with H.264 compression. It will shoot 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p30, 720p60, and 720p50 HD video. Video recording is limited to 30 minutes.
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III will be available by April. The body costs about $3,500, but the price goes up to $4,300 to add the EF 24-105mm f/4 IS USM zoom lens.
The Mark III continues Canon’s evolutionary (and revolutionary) path in the world of photography and video.
