Canon EOS 5D is one of the most desirable cameras on the market

Not the highest of the range of most expensive camera or Canon. It is the only DSLR with full frame sensor not the only records video, but there is something in the Canon EOS 5D Mark III which makes it a favorite of many of the professional photographers. This is the camera that we see in hands of photojournalists and artists in the industry, which speak most photographers and fans, want most.

It’s been almost two years since the Japanese introduced and professionals from around the world have already given intensive. In fact, a few days ago we knew the winning photograph of World Press Photo 2013, the most prestigious award in the world of photography. The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

It’s a camera, but it records video and it does very well, as we have seen first-hand in recent weeks. Their predecessor, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II revolutionized the world of digital recording. With a full-frame sensor and optical capabilities of an SLR camera allowed video to take amazing quality. In this model, Japanese consumers realized the potential that the video quality was a media world filled with video network, and especially looked after this.

The top display is large, with complete information about the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, meter, focus and cards. Thus, the routine out is fast and complete, with the numbers game there is always that keep in mind when the work is delivered. We also found the wheel of options at the back, own share of high-end models of Canon.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

It’s a camera, but it records video and it does very well, as we have seen first-hand in recent weeks. Their predecessor, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II revolutionized the world of digital recording your hobby is a constant struggle against the lack of light. To win this battle two weapons: large aperture lenses (which cost a fortune) and the sensitivity of the sensor, the famous ISO.

Why the Canon EOS 5D is one of the most desirable cameras on the market. Its full frame sensor of 20.2 megapixels is a crucial ally in this struggle. And it is a big sensor with a relatively low resolution. 20 million pixels seem a lot, and are more than enough for all that paper does not involve a building of 20 floors with a photo. But there are cameras in the market for lower quality (and even smaller sensors) that offer more.

But professionals know that in this case less is more. A rational number of pixels on a larger sensor has means that the sensor photosets are much larger than normal and this has a direct effect on the photos: less image noise. Thus, with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III we can raise the sensitivity of the sensor to unthinkable levels for other cameras without showing those annoying red spots that spoil photos.

The photo makes the photographer, the story has to be there and we must learn to tell it in an image, be at the right time. But sometimes you need the technology in your hand. The story that John Stanmeyer with this snapshot has some drama of the century, with mobile pointing to the sky, but it is also a timeless story’s of people looking for a better life away from home. In this case the camera deserves footnote in history because all the elements there, including the talented photographer, the photo would not have been possible without it.

Speed is another key point. And there are times you can ask the protagonist to stay still for a few seconds to calculate the perfect shot and other times not. If you are photographing a wedding, there’s nothing like saying “a moment” and everyone will stand still for it. But if the snapshot is a football game, a motorcycle race, or the time a Syrian fighter fires its Kalashnikov on a helicopter, it is more likely to make us little case.

The approach is fast, faster we can find. Brands always want to score points in the field, and every so often attended the launch of a new camera that advertises “the world’s fastest autofocus”. The truth is that it is difficult to know how much truth is in these claims, beyond the language of advertising, because the measurements are made in the light conditions most beneficial to the camera. But what is clear is that the 5D focus at full speed, even in low light. This point was the most significant advance over its predecessor.

We know it’s a great camera, but the video is the new universal language, the DSLR have much to say in this field. Since the previous model something changed in the audiovisual world, as first DSLR camera was capable of recording in Full HD, opening a field hitherto unknown.
