I'll gladly trade my 45 selectable points for the more-sensitive 19 the older 45 point AF clustered its cross-type focus points around the center point.

This is an excellent feature that lets you perfectly focus-calibrate either the camera or your lenses to the camera. If a camera or lens is significantly miscalibrated, it should be sent in for servicing, but for the rest, I suggest running Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III lenses through the easy focus calibration procedure.


There are many methods to focus calibrate a lens to the 1Ds III, but they all have the same goal - find the sharpest setting for the combo. Lock your camera onto a good tripod at the distance you would be most likely to use the lens at optimally and aimed directly at Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III flat focus target.

Get your exposure setting correct at the lens' widest aperture makes evaluating the test pictures easier. I select center-point-only for my focus point and use the 2-sec self-timer drive mode optimally with mirror lockup engaged. Then, go into the menu to C. Now shoot the test again using the 6 settings between and including these two settings Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III adjust Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III 1 between each shot. You may want to shoot multiple test shots at each setting with the lens defocused to be ultra precise. Determine which setting was optimal and make it the final setting for the lens. Repeat the focus adjustment process for the rest of your lenses. There are a few limitations to the AF Microadjustment feature. First, a maximum of 20 lenses can be calibrated to a camera.

Since you can only select one calibration setting per lens, you are forced to select the focal length to calibrate to on a zoom lens Canon suggests the longest focal length as this is the most focus-critical. Each iteration of Canon's Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III systems makes life a little better. The 1Ds II worked very in this regard, but all improvements are welcomed I'm not seeing any dramatic changes here.

The manual describes the HTP feature in this way: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III gradation between the grays and highlights becomes smoother. The initial image below was taken at a barely highlight-holding exposure. If dark areas of the photo were being blocked at these camera settings, increasing the exposure by 1 stop would let in more light to accommodate the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III. Blown highlights are the obvious result. Enabling Highlight Tone Priority saves these highlights. However, it reduces the brightness of all highlights slightly - reducing the overall contrast.

The other downside is that slightly more shadow noise is visible Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III can be seen below. Once again, hovering your mouse over the links in this paragraph will change the image below to the one described in the link.


What you see is the worse-case for the HTP increase in shadow noise. Compare a barely highlight-holding exposureincreasing the exposure by 1 stopEnabling Highlight Tone Priority and increasing the original exposure Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III 1 stop in DPP results in more noise than with HTP enabled. These differences are subtle - you are going to need to look close to see them. Highlight Tone Priority will especially appeal to some photographers and circumstances - for example, at weddings where highly reflective white wedding gowns show up next to black tuxes with great regularity.

Sometimes it takes a while to incorporate a new camera feature into a regular routine. HTP is one I am growing more and more fond of. Now that it is on my primary body, I'm sure I'll be utilizing it my shooting much more frequently. Safety Shift is another new feature designed to keep exposures correct. ISO speed safety shift is provided via C. For me, this feature would be extremely useful in a new auto-ISO mode. I love Canon's 1-Series bodies. They are solid and feel great in my hand. Let's take a look at the physical changes Of course, adding a portrait grip to the 5D changes everything. Unfortunately, the number of pixels remains the same as the 2.

The new display will make it easier to sell pictures right from the camera - or share the results with a client. I rely heavily on my histogram when shooting. Unfortunately - and you've probably heard me complain about Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III before, I can't see the edges of the luminosity histogram in bright sunshine.

I can see the shape of the histogram, but I can't tell where I am within the graph boundaries. The fix for this problem seems very simple - illuminate the boundary edges maybe in Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III or the background of the graph.

The camera can even be fired remotely from the computer. In the studio or even on location, Live View Function can be used remotely, creating new possibilities for the professional digital photographer.
