35 Reasons why Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III + Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM is better

than the average

1.Substantially larger sensor
18.7 x 28.1mmvs 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.Considerably 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.Significantly lower noise at high ISO
1663ISOvs 957ISO (the average)
vs 3702ISO (best: Sony Alpha 7S)
The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
4.Considerably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.Significantly 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.
6.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
7.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
8.Modestly 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.
9.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.
10.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.
11.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.
12.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.
13.A shade 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.
14.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
15.Appreciably wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.4vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
16.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.
17.Distinctly more lenses available
125vs 21 (the average)
vs 400 (best: Nikon D5)
A bigger variety of brand lenses means that you have more options and can find one that suits your needs.
18.Notably 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.
19.Has or is a prime lens
Yesvs No (95% don't have it)
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
