Canon 5D Mark III

Examples — Carrizo Plain

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.

Tint

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.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
