Canon unveils EOS-1D Mark III DSLR camera

Canon EOS-1D Mark III

Canon introduced the EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR as it celebrates the 20th anniversary of its EOS SLR camera system. The 10.1-megapixel 1D Mark III is capable of shooting 10 frames per second, delivering bursts of 30 RAW or 110 JPEG files thanks to the new Dual DIGIC III image processor engine.

It also adds a Live View shooting mode which allows you to see the picture you are about to take on the LCD screen (a first for DSLRs), an integrated cleaning system to keep the CMOS sensor clean, support for the sRAW recording format that has files half the size of conventional RAW images and ISO sensitivity from 100 to 3200 (with the possibility of extending that to ISO 6400).

The Canon EOS-1D Mark III should be available in the spring and will cost around $4000 USD.

Canon also unveiled four new consumer digital cameras.
