Canon unveils EOS 1Ds Mark III

canon 1ds mark iii

Canon presented a couple of new cameras today from which the EOS 1Ds Mark 3 is the most exciting one. Though the predecessor with its 16MP-Sensor was unbeaten throughout the last years, the new Mark 3 version yet tops out the benchmark of DSLR-resolution: It sports a 21MP, full-frame CMOS-sensor producing an impressive 5616 x 3744 pixels! The 1Ds also ships with all the improvements the 1D brought when it showed up this spring. This is, for example the dual DIGIC III processors. Key features of the 1Ds Mark 3 are:

  • 21 Megapixel, full frame sensor
  • 5 fps, up to 56 frames
  • Dual “DIGIC III” processors
  • Highlight Tone Priority
  • Auto focus system with 19 cross type sensors (26 assist points)
  • Integrated Cleaning System
  • 3.0” 230K pixel LCD with Live View mode
  • Redesigned viewfinder now wider and brighter
  • UDMA support for Compact Flash cards

Canon also presented a redesigned version of the EF 2.8 14mm L ultrawideangle lens, the semi-professional (or „prosumer“) camera EOS 40D with a IS-version of the EF-S 18-55mm and the Powershot G9 compact camera. I have to admit I am quite lucky they didn´t present the 5D sucessor after I bought one only a week ago 😉 Rumours say it might show up in early 2008, but time will tell. You´ll find more information ´bout the new products in the Canon press-release, on dpreview or on Mactechnews.de (in german).
