Following off their success with the EOS-1D Mark II, Canon has released the Canon EOS-1D Mark III. This is another milestone for Canon as it has a new "Dual DIGIC III" imaging processor. This gives this new professional digital camera an edge because of the new processing power that it has.

It also has an "integrated cleaning system" included in it and its shutter cycle has been upgraded to 300,000 shutter clicks. It has several other improvements that will definitely catch the eye of amateur and professionals alike. The Mark III is definitely both eye candy and a technical marvel for photographers of all walks.

The Mark III, as mentioned earlier, has a Dual DIGIC III Imaging Processor which gives the photographer excellent resolution. It enables the high resolution of the 10.1 megapixel of the camera.

All of these technologies combine to work with a more improved buffer capacity to effectively deliver a maximum of 110 frame bursts of JPEG quality pictures and 30 frame bursts of RAW quality. This is also complemented with the astounding 10 frames per second rate of the shutter. This is quite excellent for those who dabble in sports photography or for those who would like to capture that perfect moment just right when they see it. This type of frame rate is quite important for those who want to capture the right emotion at the right time.

Another feature of this photographic marvel is the high ISO sensitivity that it has. Aside from reproducing life-like colors, the Mark III also has a high light sensitivity which peaks at ISO 3200. This is even adjustable to the lowest ISO which is ISO 50 and can be cranked all the way up to an amazing ISO 6400.

Knowing how Canon has mastered the high ISO and low grain/noise equation, this is a great thing for those photographers who need to capture an important yet discreet moment without flash. This particular technology is also partly due to the DIGIC III imaging processor that can effectively work for all shooting conditions as well as bulb setting exposures.

The processor also works well to reduce the different false color and moiré effects that one gets whenever the shooting conditions or angles are not optimal. Infrared filters that are found in the camera setting also reduce fringes of red as well as specific color casts.

There is also a "Live View" mode that the user can employ when shooting. It enables the photographer to see the image that they are composing in real time using the LCD monitor. The different exposure adjustments of the images will be viewed when you are trying to frame your subject. Because of this new feature, overexposed and underexposed pictures will be a thing of the past.

With this type of technology on hand, the amateur and professional photographer will only be limited by his imagination. Underexposed and ruined shots, lost candid moments will be a thing of the past simply because the future of photography has finally arrived.
