LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., February 21, 2007 – Canon, the worldwide market leader in digital cameras, celebrates the 20th anniversary of its top-selling EOS single lens reflex camera system by announcing the EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR, the world's fastest digital SLR camera. At 10 frames per second, the 10.1 megapixel EOS-1D Mark III digital SLR can fire huge motor-driven bursts of 110 Large JPEGs or 30 RAW files because it employs the new Dual DIGIC III image processor engine, providing enough computational horsepower to do parallel processing at a rate unmatched by any other digital SLR. [ed: The camera is expected to retail at USD 3999.]

why?

woop-de-doo for 10frames per second
the average photographer doesnt use this lol

good photos dont come from taking a heap of shots and hoping for the best.
Time must be taken to line up the shot, focus correctly, select a suitable shutter speed for how youd like your photo to come out, a suitable apeture to change the depth of field of your shot as well as ensuring that lighting is not only adequate, but that its hitting your subject at an appropriate angle.

- THESE are the differences between REAL "professional" photography, and the simple everyday "point and shoot" user...for which you could get a nice camera for a hell of a lot less ;). This 10fps feature is just a "noob enticer" IMO. Remember that the photographer who gets "in touch" with his photo takes alot greater photos than a person whose goal is to simply capture an image.

But all in all its a beautiful camera :).

I bought a new Nikon D80...no woman would reject an offer of a photoshoot with a $2500 camera :D...therein lie the advantages :roll:

IMO this camera is FUGLY compared to my nikon...probably because of the new technology right? *cough*

i think theyr all the same
as long as you get the right lenses everything is pretty similar

thats for DSLRs anyway...point and shoot camera's from brands other than canon regularly shit me. Eg olympus - not only are they ugly, but they are crap :p...at least my sisters olympus anyway...

leica wtf?

eos 1d mark3 image:
http://web.canon.jp/Imaging/eos1dm3/downloads/kayak.jpg

good luck trying to get that with your consumer cameras
holy cow that IS a superb shot...but then again keep in mind this is a dedicated SPORTS camera. So its to be expected :cool:

Still, im interested as to what other brands offer in the same specification/cost ratio

Edit - 6MB :p! And thats less than a THIRD of that cameras total resolution!

at this time i think nobody gets close to the 1d3 price/performance. 4k usd is not much, on the other hand you can get the 5d which is about 2k if you find a good deal. while it offers less frames/second it has a bigger sensor and image quality should be about the same.

i just wish canon would make a 5d successor

leica is the snob's camera.

in my experience the camera has little to do with the photograph taken. ansel adams could take a better picture with one of those wind up/throw away cameras than most 'photographers' could with a $4000 camera.

Ahhh opted for the D80. Nice. You talk your cousin out of his lenses yet? lol
nah, i settled for a 18-135 lens.

Quite versatile. And it gives me a good level of zoom for framing shots.
Not a great lens choice for dim environments when your using a high shutter speed, but it works a charm in all other situations...beast of a camera, im 100% happy with it...

i didnt mention that i got it, and my dad told me off because he thought i broke it.
Turns out that the lens i got had a faulty CPU connection, and apparently (according to google) HEAPS of people had the same problem with the same lens...probably a bad batch :)
but i got that all sorted out the day after i purchased it :D

im going out tomorrow to take some source photography for my digital major work though (the reason i bought the camera in the first place)...i can post those pics :)

i probably wont be playing with the apeture/shutter speed though, so expect just a taste of the cameras capabilities :cool:

Your an idiot. This is a professional camera, and there is many uses for 10 frames per second.

-Sports photography (MANY professionals sports photographers will love 10fps)
-Event photographers
-Wildlife photographers
-Storm photographers

Those are the ones I can come up with off the top of my head. This is a professional level camera, meant for the professional market.

Just because your too useless to think of a purpose for the feature, doesn't mean the feature is useless.
