Examples on this page were the very first images I made with the Canon 5D Mark III (“5DM3”). The rain was nearly constant, so I grabbed what I could when I could.
As is my wont, I always shoot initially to explore the focusing, color, dynamic range and overall feel and behavior of a camera.
My experience with Canon has been the 5D Mark II since its introduction with many thousands of frames, as well as all the Canon 1D/s bodies for the past ~6 years.
The 5D Mark II exhibits a green tint to the tune of about +12 or so (at least with Adobe Camera RAW). I did not realize this right away, so not all images shown on this page had the +12 magenta tint applied to correct for it.
