Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

11 Reasons why Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III is better

than the average

1.Considerably larger sensor
24 x 36mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Significantly more focus points
45vs 37 (the average)
vs 425 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
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.
3.Appreciably longer battery life
1800shotsvs 516shots (the average)
vs 4400shots (best: Nikon D3x)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
4.Somewhat bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
5.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
6.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
7.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
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.
8.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
9.A little bit more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 98% (the average)
vs 100% (best: Sony A7)
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.
10.Has dual card slots
Yesvs No (97% don't have it)
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
11.Significantly more cross-type focus points
19vs 13 (the average)
vs 169 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
