Canon announces 21MP EOS-1Ds Mark III
Canon has announced the EOS-1Ds Mark III, the first 35mm-style digital SLR to break the 20MP barrier. The new model combines a 21.03 million image pixel self-cleaning sensor and maximum 5 fps shooting rate in a body that's nearly identical in appearance to the EOS-1D Mark III, and shares most of that camera's features and specifications as well. The EOS-1Ds Mark III has a larger viewfinder than the EOS-1D Mark III, a narrower ISO range of ISO 100-1600 (plus 50 and 3200) and support for the UDMA protocol for quicker writing to an inserted CompactFlash card.
