Canon EOS 5D Mark III Hands-on Preview


Preview based on a pre-production Canon EOS 5D Mark III

On March 2nd 1987, Canon unveiled to the world the EOS 620, its first ever 35mm autofocus SLR and the start of a brand new camera system. With its fully-electronic lens mount, in-lens aperture and focus motors, and reliance on electronic button and dial operation, the EOS system established a blueprint that all successive camera systems have followed. Now, 25 years later to the day, the company has launched the latest model in the line: the EOS 5D Mark III.

Up until now, the 5D series has been a dynasty of slightly unlikely revolutionaries. The original EOS 5D of 2005 was the first 'affordable' full frame SLR, and the camera that cemented the 24x36mm sensor as the format of choice for many professional applications at a time when many were questioning its continued relevance. The 5D Mark II was the first SLR capable of recording full HD video, a feature that revolutionized the market in a fashion that no one could possibly have envisaged at the time - least of all Canon. On the face of it, though, the 5D Mark III offers little that looks likely to make the same impact.

As the inevitable internet leaks have suggested, the 5D Mark III has a 22MP full frame sensor in a body based on the EOS 7D design, and with a 61-point AF system borrowed from the flagship EOS-1D X. From the glass-half-empty point of view, this could be seen as an unambitious update that trails disappointingly behindNikon's 36MP D800 before either camera has even hit the shops. But for those whose glasses tend more towards the half-full, it might turn out to be the camera that 5D Mark II owners always really wanted.

Indeed the 5D name itself is almost misleading - compared to its predecessor the Mark III is essentially a completely new model, with every major system upgraded and updated. In a way it's better seen as a full-frame 7D, with that camera's control layout, extensive customizability and 63-zone metering sensor. But it also gains a raft of additional tweaks and improvements in response to customer feedback; these range from dual slots for CF and SD cards, though a locking exposure mode dial, to a large depth of field preview button that's repositioned for right-handed operation, and can be reprogrammed to access a number of other functions.

 SeaView: Google Street View for the Sea

New service called the Catlin SeaView Survey is planning to do for the ocean what Google Street View has done for land. Using a special camera, the joint venture between the University of Queensland, Google, and insurance firm Catlin Group will use a specially designed underwater camera to capture interactive 360-degree panoramic photographs. The purpose will be to carry out one of the most intensive studies of reefs ever, starting with Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. It’ll go into full swing starting in September, but some sample imagery is already viewable over at the SeaView website.

Los compañeros de Xataka foto, han publicado una noticia de cómo empezar en la fotografía panorámica. Concretamente José Juan Gonzávlez!!. Creo que puede venir muy bien para ciertos usuarios. Aquí os dejamos la noticia. 

Muchos de vosotros conocéis la fotografía panorámica, su espectacularidad y lo interesante que es ampliar el ángulo de visión de nuestras fotografías. En una sola fotografías vemos lo mismo que si desde el lugar de la toma, moviéramos la cabeza a derecha e izquierda. Dando al espectador de la foto una sensación de amplitud.

Empezar en la fotografía panorámica es fácil. Muchas de las cámaras de hoy en día nos dan asistencia para realizar tomas múltiples y, en pocos pasos, podemos juntarlas en el ordenador. Pero podemos ir mas allá e interesarnos por esta disciplina de la fotografía. Conozcamos con qué ayudas podemos contar a la hora de sacar nuestras fotos panorámicas.

Nikon has announced the D800 and D800E 36MP full-frame DSLRs. The pixel count of the long-awaited replacement for the D700 means it also trumps the D3X as the highest-resolution camera in Nikon's lineup. As well as the 'stock' D800, Nikon has also revealed a more expensive model, the D800E that will be free from the effects of an anti-aliasing filter. Aimed at studio and landscape professionals the D800E should theoretically begin to rival medium format digital equipment in terms of resolution.

 

MELVILLE, N.Y. (Feb 6, 2012) –  Today, imaging leader Nikon Inc. announced the highly anticipated D800 HD-SLR, engineered to provide extreme resolution, astounding image quality and valuable video features optimized for professional still and multimedia photographers and videographers.  A camera with an unmatched balance of accuracy, functionality and image quality, the Nikon D800 realizes innovations such as a high resolution 36.3-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, a 91,000-pixel RGB Matrix Metering System, Advanced Scene Recognition System and many other intuitive features designed to create the preeminent device for the most demanding photo and video applications.

Whether shooting high fashion, weddings or multimedia content, Nikon’s highest resolution sensor to date, a groundbreaking new 36.3-megapixel (7360 x 4912 resolution) FX-format CMOS sensor, affords flexibility and astonishing image quality to satisfy a myriad of client requests. The Nikon D800 incorporates the latest 91,000-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering III and the Advanced Scene Recognition System, coupled with an improved 51-point AF system for images with amazing sharpness, color and clarity. With its compact, lightweight D-SLR form factor and extensive video feature set, the D800 allows photographers to transition to multimedia to create an immersive story. Professional videographers will appreciate practical features that go beyond NIKKOR lens compatibility and Full HD 1080p video, such as full manual control, uncompressed HDMI output, and incredible low-light video capability. With this innovative combination of features, the D800 celebrates resourcefulness and a dedication to the flawless execution of an epic creative vision. All of this is driven by Nikon’s latest EXPEED 3™ image processing engine, providing the necessary processing power to fuel amazing images with faithful color, a wide dynamic range and extreme resolution. 

“Whatever the project, visionaries need a tool that is going to help them stay on-time and on-task. The Nikon D800 re-imagines what is possible from this level of D-SLR, to address the needs of an emerging and ever changing market; this is the camera that is going to bridge the gap for the most demanding imaging professionals, and provide never before seen levels of SLR image and video quality,” said Bo Kajiwara, director of marketing, Nikon Inc. “The D800 is the right tool for today’s creative image makers, affording photographers, filmmakers and videographers a versatile option for capturing the ultimate in still image quality or full HD content, with maximum control.”
