Sample shots "Canon EOS 1Ds Mark 3"
During the EOS Safari 2007 in Kenya I had the opportunity to work with the new Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III professional digital SLR camera for a few days. This professional DSLR camera with high resolution of 21 Megapixel and image speed of 5 fps is equipped with a 35mm full format CMOS sensor and two DIGIC 3 processors for a maximum range of 56 large JPEG images (12 RAW). These first images made with the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III digital SLR camera were taken in practice during the EOS Safari 2007 trip. The overall circumstances were sunny with dusty and dry surroundings occasionally. The first samples in this publication are prior to the up-coming Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III review.

I mainly used the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III DSLR in combination with the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM and the EF 16-35mmf/2.8L USM lenses. The 400mm range with a full format image sensor like the one on the Canon 1Ds Mark III is the minimum to capture animals the size of rhinos and lions in close-up. In combination with the built-in lens stabilizer, higher ISO, a fast shutter speed and the almost indispensable 'rice bag' for necessary support, it is a joy to shoot and the 1Ds Mark 3 is undoubtedly fantastic to work with. The combined file size of around 35MB (Canon RAW and JPEG Large of respectively 25 and 9MB) require a high storage capacity flash memory card. It made me go for the SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash card with 12 and 16GB and the new SanDisk Extreme Ducati CF 8GB to cover the EOS Safari 2007. Despite the total storage capacity offering some 35GB you still do not have enough on a location like this. My notebook served well as storage centre during the Canon Safari event.

The Test photos were taken with the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III digital SLR camera in the area on and around the Borana ranch in the Laikipia region, north of Nairobi, near the Mount Kenya. During the Canon EOS Safari 2007 event I had the opportunity to work with a sample for some period of time. We will have some of the first pictures, results of the test in practice, available for the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III gallery. The small pictures have been compressed to keep the speed of reproduction as high as possible. The large pictures are the original, unedited ones. The Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III is listed to be published in a review soon.
