Canon 5DMKIII Specs Leaked

5DMKIII 5D Mark III 5 D MARK 3, 5DM3

The New 5DMKIII

The 5DMKII was a camera that changed independent filmmaking overnight. The ability to use any lens in natural light with beautiful results with a stills camera created a flash market of video hungry shooters, and created a HDSLR market overnight. Canon had created a monster, by mistake. The video mode was just a happy accident as far as they were concerned.

Ever since the 5DMKII became popular, there has been discussion on what its next iteration, the 5DMKIII, would bring. Many have speculated about reduced moire, rolling shutter fixes as well as higher light sensitivity. According to a leak released today, the facts back up some of these claims.
