Canon 5D MK III

Firmware 1.2.3
Magic Lantern updated weekly

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera is a full-frame 22.3MP DSLR featuring exceptional still image and movie recording capabilities. Integrating Canon's new DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and 14-bit A/D conversion, this camera is able to produce superbly detailed imagery with immense low-light sensitivity that is further aided by an extended ISO range up to 102400. Image quality is further enhanced by the new 61-point high density reticular autofocus, including up to 41 cross-type AF points and 5 dual diagonal AF points for ensured sharpness. iFCL metering works in conjunction with the AF system and uses color information from scenes to produce accurate exposure readings using a 63 zone dual-layer metering sensor. HDR and Multiple Exposure modes provide greater creative opportunities and help you to reduce the amount of post-production time needed to produce high quality imagery. The 5D Mark III is also capable of recording full HD video with manual exposure control and in multiple frame rates, including 1080/30p and 720/60p. Still images can also be recorded up to 6fps.

This is an amazing DIY kit that's easy to assemble and works perfectly. Amazing Rental.

Todd was great, really friendly and very helpful. Even though the track is DYI, he did a great job on it! Super smooth wheels, easy to setup and break down. (I used the 6’ setup)

Great experience. Will definitely rent again.

Todd is just amazing! The pick up was so convenient. Great communication. Even when I had to return the equipment super early on a Sunday morning, he was kind enough to be available for that. I'll definitely be renting from him again.

Renting from Todd is never an issue. Camera and gear returned as it was when he picked it up. Thanks Todd!

Nice guy overall but camera came back damaged and had to be sent off to repair.
