Buying from the Canon Store adds sales tax BTW.
Top shutter and sync speeds are the same. No one uses 1/4,000, much less 1/8,000, so the 5D Mark III having 1/8,000 makes no difference in actual shooting.
A lot of noise being made about the 1DX, probably the best copy of a Nikon D3 that Canon ever produced, and is better than the D4,
When was the last time you even saw a soccer mom with the lens cap hanging from the lens of their Rebel? That is so... '70's to me.
I hear the 70's are coming back (and I suppose technically they will, later this century).
You're right, I don't really see dangling lens caps on dSLRs anymore. What I do see are people leaving a CPL on the lens...all the time, even indoors at night.
Can anyone explain the particulars here what this means with regard to video with the 5D3.....?It's only relevant for professionals. There are no consumer grade hdmi recorders because it would mean digital video copying on a humungous scale. The cheapest recorders you can find are in the $5K region, I think.
Uncompressed does mean that you can achieve a higher bit rate than what is stored to the cards, but I couldn't say anything about the magnitude of the difference.
For me, this is a forgettable extra, anyway. Ymmv
