With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Canon EOS 1D Mark III 10.1MP CMOS Black:
The official marketing text of Canon EOS 1D Mark III 10.1MP CMOS Black as supplied by the manufacturer
The benchmark for high speed, high resolution professional photography. Powerful enough to capture a 110 frame burst at 10 frames per second. Built to withstand the toughest conditions.

- 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
- 10 fps, max. burst of 110 JPEGs
- Dual "DIGIC III" processors
- High precision wide area AF
- EOS Integrated Cleaning System
- ISO 100-3200 range (L:50 H:6400)
- 3.0" LCD with Live View mode
- Picture Style
- EF lens compatibility

The benchmark. Remastered.

10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
Canon’s APS-H size (28.1 x 18.7 mm) CMOS sensor combines superb colour rendering with a wide dynamic range. Its inherent low-noise characteristics ensure smooth results at high sensitivities. A low pass filter and on-chip circuitry suppress moiré and remaining noise.

10 fps, 110 frame burst
The camera delivers 10 frames per second for a continuous burst of up to 110 Large JPEGs or 30 RAW images.

Dual "DIGIC III" processors
Dual "DIGIC III" processors work in parallel to process images at 14 bits for a total reproduction range of 16,384 tones per pixel. These fast and efficient processors also drive the camera’s shooting performance and near-instant response times. Start-up is just 0.2 milliseconds.

Wide-area AF with 19 cross type points
A high precision AF system employs 19 cross type points with sensitivity up to f/2.8, spread out across the AF area to accommodate off-centre subjects. 26 AF assist points aid AF tracking for increased accuracy.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Canon’s built-in dust prevention and cleaning system works to keep the sensor clean. A combination of technologies reduces, repels and removes dust and includes a Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit that shakes dust from the sensor with each power on.

Wide ISO Range
A wide 100 to 3200 ISO range as standard is expandable to L:50 and H:6400.

3.0" LCD with Live View mode
The bright 3.0" TFT LCD provides pin-sharp definition for checking focus and composition, with 10x magnification for finer details. When shooting from awkward positions, Live View mode gives you the option of framing your image from the LCD.

Picture Style
Picture Style presets provide easy control over image processing parameters. Each style offers a different colour response - similar to the way film types are changed to achieve different effects. Sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation are adjustable within each preset.

Weather sealed, magnesium alloy body
A magnesium alloy body with dust and moisture resistant sealing protects the EOS-1D Mark III from harsh weather and the rigours of daily use. Shutter reliability is a durable 300,000 cycles.

EOS system compatibility
The EOS-1D Mark III is compatible with all EF lenses (excl. EF-S lenses) and EX Series Speedlite flash units. Untethered shooting and image transfer are available with the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2.
