by planetmitch3 Comments

I suspect we'll be getting many of these in the next few weeks and I'll try not to post all of them here, but will be posting them on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III page so keep your eye there. This one is from Martin Zilka who's from Slovakia and he's put together a video that shows off some stills as well as video from the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

Also, I've been posting a few Nikon D800 and Nikon D4 tips over on the Scoop News page so you'd better keep an eye there as well.

Short fotofilm document from testing new Canon EOS 5D Mark III at SnowFest BigAir Kosodrevina 2012 in Central Slovakia. The field test has been focused to outdoor action sport photography and indoor lowlight performance of brand new DSLR. Basic technical info is added. It was pre-production model and images has been recorded straight to .jpg. No sharpening or color correction has been done. Some compressed video sequences has been added as well. The result was outstanding .. TOP IMAGE QUALITY I have ever recorded to any Canon DSLR .. check it on your own although in low resolution. Photographs and video sequences created by Martin Žilka / & .

Info from Martin Zilka

I'm pro freelance photographer based in Slovakia and I'm great fan of your activities at Planet5D, it is so useful and actual! I appreciate it!

Few days ago I got Canon 5D Mark III for test, so I create a little action sport and lowlight test as well.
Here you can find the document. It is focused for still images, just some video sequences are added to the beginning and to the end. Details of each shots and basic metadata are included.

Good luck,

Martin Zilka

  1. The handheld 0.5 second shot at night is a cracker! The high iso turned night into day!
