Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III: 47 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

8. color depth

The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.

9. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

10. pixel density

11. width

12. higher resolution (screen)

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

13. dynamic range

The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.

17. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

18. Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures

23. has an optical viewfinder

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

24. more viewfinder coverage

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

25. number of microphones

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
