above, Canon 5D MK III iso 1600, 1/125 sec, f 4
I've been shooting with the Canon 5D MK III for the better part of a year now and I have to say that the camera continues to impress me. Not only is the low light performance of the camera fantastic but its dynamic range is pretty incredible. In the image above there is almost 10 stops difference between the highlights and shadows. The camera managed to hold them all! There is no dodging or burning in this conversion. I did bring the highlights down and the shadows up in Lightroom, but other than those adjustments the photo is straight. Sometimes people ask me if I miss shooting film. The answer is sometimes, but when it comes to situations like this definitely not.
