Canon Announces the EOS 5D Mark III

You know me, I'm not a gear junkie. I've been shooting with a first generation Canon 5D for the past 6 years and I'm the first to say it's the photographer, not the camera. But nevertheless, I thought I'd share the news on a new camera from Canon and create a 1-stop shop for you here on where to get all the details.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

So in case you haven't already heard, Canon has announced the long-awaited next-generation Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and it has quite an impressive spec list. The new sensor is 22.3 megapixels, which isn't a huge jump over the previous 21 megapixels, but the improvements that shout out to me are the vastly-improved 61-point auto focus system, much-higher 6 fps shooting rate, 100% viewfinder coverage and upgraded weather sealing. Oh, the ISO also goes up to 102,400. Check out the links to follow for more details.

Spec Summary:

- 22.3 Megapixels

- 100% viewfinder coverage
