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.
