The images I get from this camera take my breath away

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

I am a portrait photographer upgrading from a Canon 5D Mark 11. I wanted just to replace my Mark ll with another Mark ll but they are a little hard to find. I checked many comparisons and reviews and decided to upgrade to the Mark lll. Honestly, I didn't think I would find much of a difference, but I was oh-so-wrong. All I could do was smile at my computer while I was editing. The images were sharp where I needed them sharp, and soft and buttery where I needed that look. It feels like home.

Upgraded from the 5D Mark II and I can't put it down! Love the extra focal points and the ease of moving through menus. Once I am able to replace my back up camera with another 5D Mark III it will be an awesome set up!!

    The 5D Mark III is the camera I've been waiting for and it doesn't disappoint. Great bundle and the printer is awesome. Set it up quick and was printing big pints with lab quality.

        Professional wedding and event photography and videography.
        This is simply one of the best high-end DSLR's out there.
        Unparalleled in its class for photography, and it also does 1080p@30fps, which never looks bad through your Canon L lens.

            I've been waiting for years to upgrade my camera body. I finally pulled the trigger and I could not be happier! The 5D Mark iii has exceeded my expectations and I have a renewed excitement for picking up my camera each and everyday!
            This is the best price I have seen in years [when you get the rebate]. I didn't need a printer but I actually saved money when I bought this package together.
            I love that this package came with two batteries as I was going to have to buy a 2nd one anyway.

            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.

            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.

              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, 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.
