Canon EOS 5D MK III Field Test

Canon EOS 5D MK III Field Test Using Canon EF 24-105 f4 L IS Lens

I took the Canon 5D MK III and the EF 24-105 for a test drive last week. I tested the camera in different light conditions with different settings. Overall I am very pleased with Canon EOS 5D MK III field test results.

The Canon 5D MK III performed very well in variety of hard conditions, as I was trying to push it to its limits! There are four different categories that I performed the test, Indoor, Outdoor, Metering Modes, Focusing system, and Auto White Balance. Here we are the first Canon EOS 5D MK III field test result.

Disclaimer:

All the pictures are taken Handheld, in Raw format to test the Dynamic Range, Auto White Balance, and Manual Exposure using Canon EF 24-105 f4 L IS. I have used High ISO in indoor photos and ISO 400 for Outdoor pictures. The Image Stabilizer was activated in all photos. All images are converted to JPG in Adobe Lightroom with no colour correction.

Indoor Photography

In indoor photography Canon 5D preforms unbelievably well. The focusing is fast and Accurate, even in very low light situations. I shot this photo at ISO 6400 and the noise level is minimum.

Although the light was very dim (that I had to use ISO 2000 in this photo), the camera precisely focused very fast on the focusing point.

Canon 5D MK III can focus precisely even in low light conditions.

The test result shows that the Canon 5D MK III is a perfect camera for indoor photography (such as Sports, Wedding, or Event Photography).

Outdoor Photography

Metering Modes:

a-Evaluative Metering

I am not a big fun of multi-segmented metering (in Canon terms “Evaluative) as it always clipped the highlights, but Canon’s new algorithm of evaluative metering is very impressing. It does maintain the highlight as much as possible. Here is the photo in evaluative mode.

I also used evaluative metering for this picture and just opened up the Shadows in Lightroom.

b-Spot Metering

Spot Metering works as it is supposed to work. I didn’t have any issues of over or under exposure using spot metering.

Canon Spot Metering Mode

Spot Metering Mode is the best for contrasty scene to rock the exposure for the main subject.

Focusing System:

Canon EOS 5D MK III has a very sophisticated focusing system. I really appreciate the dedicated Focusing Menu and Function Keys. Changing the focusing points is now very intuitive and easy. I shot these photos using Single Shot Mode

When it comes to moving subjects, it is always a good idea to use AI or AI Servo. I really enjoyed the speed and accuracy of Canon AI Servo focusing mode. It tracks the subject and maintains the focusing.

Auto White Balance

New Canon Auto White Balance is incredibly pleasant. I did not adjust the White Balance in these photos. I shot these photos in shade. Usually cameras produce a very cold colour cast in this situation but Canon did a good job. The colours are very warm and pleasing.

That is all for now. You can try the new Canon 5D MK III and new Canon EF 24-105 for yourself. Just contact us to rent the camera and lens.

Photography Equipment Rentals Fraser Valley

We opened our Photography Equipment Rentals back in January 2014 with plans for adding more cameras and lenses to our rental department.

This is a perfect, affordable option for those times when you need a particular gadget to finish your project and don’t want to buy the gear, or perhaps you just learned a new technique and want to try it to see if it works with your style of photography. These are times when having camera equipment rentals in your area comes in handy!

For example Summer sunlight can be very strong and can cause exceptionally hard light. You want to take some shots outdoors and your client insists on having the session at mid day when the sun is at its brightest and highest point. What can you do? There’s an easy solution! Just use your strobe or flash to over power the sunlight. And with a soft box on your flash you can create very natural looking images.

Camera Lens Rentals

Camera Lens Rental Fraser Valley

Have you wanted to explore new areas in photography, but don’t have the right equipment for the task?

For instance the Abbotsford Air show is right around the corner, where a longer lens will capture better photos. But you don’t want to invest thousands of dollars for a lens you are going to use once in a while.

So what are the options for you? 

Option 1- Just stop thinking about taking photos at air show and enjoy looking at your friends and neighbours photos. This option does not work for me!

Option 2- Go ahead and buy a lens that costs thousands of dollars and use it for occasional photography. This option is not affordable for me!

But there is a third option which is totally doable and budget friendly, which is Camera Lens Rentals. Just check our line-up of telephoto lenses available for rental. They are all pro lenses and the rental fee is very affordable.
