Features

Tougher and More Powerful

Unprecedented Shutter Durability

The EOS-1Ds Mark III features an improved heavy-duty shutter that has been durability tested to 300,000 cycles—the highest ever in an SLR.* The camera thus provides long service life and inspires the all-important confidence for the professional that comes from the knowledge that the shutter will perform on demand.

*As of August 2007.

Weather-Resistant Design

Extensive weatherproofing ensures superior reliability, even when shooting in harsh environments. Rubber gaskets are used at nearly every joint and seam—including around the battery compartment cover, memory card door, and flash shoe—to keep out moisture and dust.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System

Photographers who must change lenses in dusty environments will find the advanced Canon EOS Integrated Cleaning System a tremendous time saver. Dust that settles on the low-pass filter is removed using ultrasonic vibration. This Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is automatically activated whenever the camera is powered on or off. (It can also be manually activated.) A special collar positioned around the sensor collects the loosened dust. Dust particles can also be automatically removed via software. By shooting a plain white subject, the photographer can acquire dust position data called "Dust Delete Data" that is transmitted along with each subsequent image (whether JPEG or RAW). Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) v.3.2 or higher software can then be used to manually or automatically erase the dust spots, before the image ever gets to Photoshop™ or a similar image-editing program.

Dust that has been missed by the Integrated Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit can also be erased with software included in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) Version 3.2 or higher. The EOS-1Ds Mark III's imaging sensor is able to single out the dust particles on its surface, then plots out their location coordinates within the image. This data is transmitted along with the image, whether JPEG or RAW, and can be either manually or automatically erased in Canon's DPP software. This added software option ensures the cleanest possible image, perfect for printing or archiving.
