Canon's new "full-frame" sensor DSLR, the EOS 5D Mark III, is a 22.3-megapixel camera with expanded low-light sensitivity thanks to a redesigned image sensor with noise reduction built in. In addition to the DIGIC 5+ processor that affords the camera a 17x performance boost over its predecessor, the 5D Mark III has two memory card slots (SD and CompactFlash), captures 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and has a 6 frame per second continuous shooting mode.

Description

The second coming of Canon's full-frame EOS 5D, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II features an improved LCD monitor (bumped to 3 inches with 920k-dot resolution), HDMI output, and a new 21.1-megapixel sensor inherited from the higher-end 1Ds.

The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV succeeds the EOS-1D Mark III and adds a 16-megapixel sensor and dual new DIGIC IV image processors. The camera is capable of taking up to photos at 10 FPS.

The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III succeeded the EOS-1Ds Mark II as Canon's flagship full frame DSLR. The camera features a 35mm sensor, dual DIGIC III image processors, an ISO of up to 3200, and 3-inch LCD with Live View.
