The Canon 5D Mark III Has Arrived

Blog Categories:

Uncle Canon has finally released the much-anticipated 5D Mark III and she's a beauty...

Yes, I have had this camera in my hot little hands and its very, very nice. They gave us a proper little 3.5mm headphone jack (at last!) so the audio features of the Mark III are greatly improved. I'll let you read more in the official press release but I'm very pleased with this logical evolution of the Canon 5D line. And don't worry, the 5D Mark II is gonna stick around for the foreseeable future too.

Now we just need to start a grassroots campaign to implore the Canon engineers to give us a focus-assist "peaking" feature so that manual focusing with this HDSLR will be on par with all their conventional camcorders.

Please, Uncle Canon, do it. It's probably something that could be solved with a firmware update. And make it "color selectable" as well...

"Peaking! Peaking! Peaking!"

It has a nice sound to it when you chant it, huh? Join me!
