    Canon Mark III & Canon Support, January 21, 2008
    This review is from: Canon EOS 1D Mark III 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (Electronics)

    In the last 3 years I have gone from 2 different point and shot cameras to the Canon 30D to the Canon Mark III. With each camera, I was telling myself – this should do it for some time. I read and learned as much as I could with each camera. When I got the 30D I was on cloud 9 – this was great – it would be nice to shoot faster though. When I heard about the Mark III coming out, I knew that was hopefully the last stepping stone I would require for sometime.

    This thing rocked – couldn’t believe how fast it could shot. I was surprised at how many shots were out of focus though (birding). I didn’t experience anything like this on the 30D. I read about the AI focus problems and thought – well this is what is happening to me. For the next 5 months Canon stone walled me on a weekly basis. Promised firmware fixes, this fix that fix, reps telling me off.

    I wrote a letter to Yoroku Adachi (President of Canon U.S.A.) and got a call back from one of his people. Very apologetic but same old please be patient and apologies galore – but still we won’t replace it with a functioning camera – it is a minor issue (again I was told that by numerous reps) – I say it is only minor if you don’t use those features.

    5 ½ months later it got fixed. I missed the birding season but there is next year (I was told that by a rep too!). It looks like the problem is fixed and looking forward to spring migration. If someone is reading this and hasn’t purchased any camera gear yet, buy Nikon. I have too much invested in Canon gear to switch.

    I would probably give the camera 4.5-5 stars now. Canon Support would get a 0.

    Updated: May 29th, 2008

    With the latest firmware updates and hardware fix, I would give this Camera an easy 5 stars. I have shot plays indoors at ISO 1600 (no flash) and can’t believe how sharp shots come out.

    My issue is still with Canon Tech (lack of) Support. I called yesterday about the WFT-E2A and got the usual run-a-round about the product. If you don’t think you will ever need Canon Tech (lack of) Support, go Canon.

    Well, I finally sent my camera in because I have been getting Error 99′s since February – It is nice that it is working agaiin but I have no idea what to say about this camera – when it works it is great but I have had it for about 26 months and out of that time it had either the auto focus problem out of the box and error 99 problems. I would say I have had to deal with the camera being defective for about half of the time I have had it. Canon Support had me do all this useless stuff which of course involved me spending money on memory cards, calibrating the battery, using the AC adapter, various lenses, and cleaning contacts.

    I was able to limp along with the camera for about 8 months because I came up with my own ‘solution’ of pulling the memory cards out, removing the lens, using the ac adapter (instead of the battery), and plugging in the TC803 and just setting that to shoot away until the error 99′s stopped. I would than leave the camera on it on and changed the tc803 to take a picture every 3 minutes so it wouldn’t go off into error 99 land again.

    If I were a pro I would have dumped all my canon gear because this thing has been so unreliable. I have resisted purchasing any other canon bodies because of all the headaches I have had with this thing. Canon Support was friendly but wasted a ton of my time and some more of my $$$. It would be nice to get some sort of gift card from Canon or a lens at cost for all my mental anguish.

    I have this camera for 3 weeks now. About 600 pictures have been taken at this time. Without any reservation, I can highly recommend this camera on the following reasons:

    1) Auto focus – I tried all modes, one-shot or al-servo. I used a combination of lens – 180 mm micro, 28-300mm telezoom, 24-70mm and never experienced the problems mentioned on the web as claimed so by some experts. It was as hot as 85 degrees in a very dry heat area. The camera performed flawlesslty.

    2) Color – comparing the color of the shots taken from 1d mark iii and 1d mark ii n, I have found that the color is more natural and rich. There is no distortion to my eyes. I shot using 100 – 1600 ISO and saw the consistent color quality in netural mode.

    3) Sensor cleaning – it works very effectively. I had to clean up the sensor on my 1d mark ii n almost every 50-100 shots. Now, the automatic cleaning starts whenever I power off of change lens. Sometimes I have to do it twice. Overall, it works very well.

    4) View finder – not only the 3 inch LCD is larger but it is also more clear and real to see the pictures. I am really satisified with the display.

    5) Control – the new layout is much better than 1d mark iin. I use 20d type of control with one finger, I can change and navigate quickly. 1d mark iin is less intuitive.

    6) Battery power – I used a varierty of zoom lens and played back a lot using the LCD. After 500 shots, the battery showed that I still have 50% or so jucie to go. I think that achieving 1000 shots on a full charged battery is quite good. My previous 1d mark ii n can only go for half or 1/3 of it.

    Overall, I am very satified with the performance. However, the software provided to clean up the dust is not that great. The dust data somehow is not recognized by the software. I have to use other software to clean up the dust. Out of 500 pictures, I got 5 pictures showing dust and I removed them in two sensor cleaning cycles. It is an expensive toy but well worth the money if you can afford it.

    Great camera, but not in the beginning, March 4, 2009

    This review is from: Canon EOS 1D Mark III 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (Electronics)

    I have owned the Mark III for a little over a year. Not long after receiving it, it quit. I sent it in for a “mirror magnet” problem. After I got it back I would get an Err99 almost daily. I documented it with Canon. It would happen most often when I turned it on for the first time. After several conversations with Canon, I sent it in and they replaced the mirror box. It has not had an Err 99 since then.

    The camera was purchased as a “Blue Dot”, meaning it had been fixed for the original focus issues some people were reporting. Since the second repair it has functioned flawlessly and now focuses to meet anyone’s reasonable expectations. I get 80% to 90% in-focus. In most of the out of focus photos there was a legitimate reason. I can see this when I check my photos in Canon’s Zoom Browser. I can see where the camera was focused at the time of shutter release. It is easy to miss a shot on a fast moving object by missing the subject or hitting a different part of the subject. Often times it would be the focus changing from head to hip (on a running dog), not the camera’s fault but mine.

    There are many settings on this camera to fine tune it to your way of shooting and the shooting situation. I have gotten some awesome action shots from this camera and am very pleased with it.

    Canon clearly brought this camera to market too soon. It was not tested properly or either production standards were not watched. I would bet that the parts they were producing were not meeting the standards of their research and development, plus the conditions that caused a problem may not have been reproduced in test. This clearly threw Canon for a loop and they did a poor job managing public relations. I am surprised there has not been a class action lawsuit since so many pros use this camera. Some have toughed it out; those who had a lot of money went to Nikon, which is currently hitting it with some good cameras, something Canon normally is known for.

    If you are buying a Mark III now, you are more than likely going to be blown-away by such a great camera that focuses and gives you shots you never imagined. I love shooting it and learning to fine-tune it for particular shooting circumstance.

    Working as it works now, I would purchase it again.
