Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera and PIXMA PRO-100 Printer Kit:

I finally upgraded from the Rebel T4i to the 5D Mark III! Moving to a full frame camera is definitely an adjustment, and there are some features I miss from the Rebel (touch screen, rotating/flip out screen), but those features pale in comparison to the photos produced by the 5D. I think my only complaint is the shutter seems louder, but that may be my 50mm lens.

I wasn't planning to upgrade just yet, however the bundle with pro printer, paper, etc was just TOO good to pass up.

Great bundle for any photographer

By Kabbott

from Idaho

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera and PIXMA PRO-100 Printer Kit:

Absolutely love my purchase. I've been wanting a 5D mark iii for the past few years because of its excellent performance in low light situations and its build quality. I finally made the purchase and was happy to find this printer bundle. I was nervous about setting up the printer because I don't have very much experience with personal photo printing but surprisingly the instructions were very easy to follow and when I did call canons technical support for one problem I had they helped me quickly and made the set up very smooth.

    I'm a professional photographer and I am always using the Canon 5D Mark III digital camera to photograph weddings, family and high school senior portraits, landscape, wildlife, and video.
    The quality of photos that come out of this camera are fantastic and I absolutely love how easy it is to use. I just purchased my 2nd Mark III because it is a really great camera.

      While I'm still trying to check out the differences from the 5D Mark II I'm liking the feel of the camera and the quick response of focusing. I need to put some more time into it before my next wedding, but so far for portraits its doing a great job.

      Amazing camera

      By JG

      from USA

      Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera and PIXMA PRO-100 Printer Kit:

      Amazing camera, so nice to shoot with. If I were to think very hard of down sides, the focus points could be wider spread over the entire screen, but that is really looking for faults. Printer is pretty good too, fairly good results straight out of the box and with some tweets it produces very nice results.

      Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera and PIXMA PRO-100 Printer Kit:

      Let me start off by saying that I've had this camera before and decided to sell it off to go with a Mirrorless system.

      While the Mirrorless system worked out well, I found it to be a good companion system (good for grab-and-go, some travel etc) but wasn't the 'Swiss Army Knife' system that I had hoped for. If you have to nail the shot under any and all conditions, this camera fits the bill. There is just no substitute for the depth and breadth of a full DSLR system's lenses and accessories for the advanced photographer.

      Without doing a review on the 5D Mark III (there are hundreds out there already), I found that although the camera debuted in 2012, it was still a viable system from which to build upon in 2016. I didn't need 50+ MP and huge files, so for now, the 5DSR was out.

      IMO, the Canon L lenses are second to none, especially the 24-70 F/2.8L II, 70-200 F/4L IS USM, 100mm F/2.8L Macro and the 16-35 F/4L IS lenses.

      Also, the promotion with the free Pixma P-100 printer, along with the Canon rebate netted me an awesome deal (cheaper than the body alone.

      All in all, very pleased with the 5D Mark III and B+H value.

      this camera has a great build. it is extremely weather and dust resistant.
      I am a retired biologist and teacher. My subjects are mostly shot in macro mode. I truly love this camera body linked to the 100 mm L series lens.

      Super happy with the purchase, with the price, with the quality of what I got. The printer (which was the only thing I hadn't tried before) is pretty awesome for the price. Since I love printing my own stuff, I am thrilled to have it next to me. The camera, well, everybody knows Canon 5D mark III, it's fantastic.

        I have only had the camera for a week, but have had the chance to test it on a couple of photo sessions already. Night and day from the 60D that I upgraded from! Love this camera. I have used it mostly with my Canon 50mm 1.4 lens and the focus is quick and sharp. The color balance right out of camera in RAW mode even seems more accurate to me. I haven't had the chance to use the printer yet. I am so glad I made this purchase, it was worth every penny.

          Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera and PIXMA PRO-100 Printer Kit:

          I've only had this camera a short time and sadly haven't been able to upgrade my lenses to reflect the quality of this body; however, on its first time out of the box, I took it to the dress rehearsal of a ballet. Low light, fast movement, and my old 70-300 lens (not L series), and I was blown away at how well it captured details and light.

          This is a proven body in the photography world. I wasn't sure if making the plunge to full-frame would be worth it, but I'm thrilled with the purchase and excited to start learning what this camera can do.

          Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera and PIXMA PRO-100 Printer Kit:

          While the 5D Mark III is good as some reviewers argue, it isn't great. With the appropriate lens, it's good for shooting portraits, weddings, events, and even for travel (if you're willing to carry it around). If you're looking for the extra bells and whistles that are constantly touted, the 5D Mark III is a good choice. The dual card slot, 61-point autofocus system, 3 custom modes, etc. would undoubtedly streamline your workflow. If these features aren't necessary and your budget is limited, perhaps Canon's entry level 6D is a better option for you. Either way, the 5D Mark III is a good all-around camera. But, it's not great.
