Using Cannon 5D Mark III and with and without reflectors
The aim of this test was to see how the Cannon 5D Mark III worked as it’s an FX camera. I wanted to see the quality of images it produced and how easy it was to use. I also added in photographing with reflectors to add depth to the portraits.
Using the Cannon 5D Mark III i discovered that i was quite a heavy camera, however the lens used had varied lengths to use which worked as it meant you could photograph from different angles and crop close up or from distance if you wanted. As well as this i found that is had a different focus point than the Cannon 5D Mark II – with the Mark III you have to focus on both eyes separately, within some of the images i took for the MUA this is obvious as some of the eyes aren’t in focus.
Looking at the images below, i have found that the Mark III has excellent quality, I’ve photographed at different angles, lens depth, with and without reflectors and in landscape and portrait, the images are strong and detailed. I would like to work with this camera again.
However I am unsure if I would purchase it due to the weight, as I have small hands and struggle with camera shape however I am definitely going to look in to it as a potential purchase.
Comparing to the Mark II – the framing is more accurate, it’s lighter and easier to use, can use SD and Compact Flash, Stronger focusing points (more complex to use)
