Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III

The workhorse camera for professional landscape, commercial and National Geographic photographers, the 21-megapixel, full-frame EOS-1D Mark III DSLR is built like a tank with the image quality and day-in day-out performance required by hard-working commercial photographers. It’s getting a little long-in-the tooth now and is likely to replaced in the next year but if you need lots of resolution and a camera that can be used in pouring rain and banged around a lot (think jungles, Mt. Everest and war zones), this is the EOS-1Ds Mark III is best Canon digital SLR to have.
