Canon 5DIII Experience - Part I

June 01, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

This is not a review of the new Canon 5D III.  There are already tons of reviews and tests online for this camera.  I just like to share a few things I experienced using the 5D III on the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary firework event.

The focusing system is vastly improved over the 5D II which I still have.  It locks focus fast and responsive even at very low light situation while the 5D II was hunting.  I do think that the dynamic range is also a bit better than the 5D II.  But one thing that surprised me was that the new 5D III has more detail than the old one.

I mostly use raw mode to take photos.  I think the new one has 1/2 to 1 stop better noise performance than the old.  I will take the 5D III out for a test on bird in flight photography to see how its focusing system performs on fast moving objects.

Overall, its picture quality is very high.  I am very happy with the firework photos taken with the new 5D III.  Stay tuned for more experience sharing with the 5D III.
