Maximum quality. Total control.

21 Megapixel full frame CMOS sensor
The full frame CMOS sensor of the EOS-1Ds Mark III provides a massive 21 Megapixels of detail - exceeding the standard quality demanded by leading photo agencies. Images are processed at 14 bit colour depth for finer tonal gradations. Picture quality is assured by effective noise reduction at high sensitivities and a low pass filter that combats false colour and moiré. The sensor’s wide dynamic range can be set to preserve more detail from bright areas with the Highlight Tone Priority function.

Dual "DIGIC III" processors
Dual "DIGIC III" processors drive the camera’s rapid performance, allowing near-instant start-up and response times.

5 fps with 56 frame burst
The EOS-1Ds Mark III delivers 5 frames per second for a continuous burst of up to 56 JPEGs (12 in RAW).

Wide-area AF with 19 cross type points
A high precision AF system employs 19 cross type points with sensitivity up to f/2.8, spread out across the AF area to accommodate off-centre subjects. 26 AF assist points aid AF tracking for increased accuracy.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Canon’s built-in dust prevention and cleaning system uses a combination of technologies to reduce, repel and remove dust from the sensor. A Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit shakes dust from the sensor with each power on.
