Introduction

The Canon 5D Mark III is a DSLR camera that has the ability to appeal to filmmakers just as much as it does photographers. The camera took stellar photos in our still image tests, but it also excelled in our video labs. We’re not joking when we say its the best video-capable DSLR we’ve ever reviewed. Of course, with an estimated retail price of $3499 (body only), the Canon EOS 5D Mark III costs roughly the same as a low-end professional camcorder.
