5D Mark III or D800?

Smart Photography - - Ask Uncle Ronnie -

Which will be the bet­ter cam­era, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III or the Nikon D800?

N. S. Ti­wari, Mum­bai Let’s wait and watch. While both the mod­els are ‘ high-end’, I think both are de­signed with dif­fer­ent philoso­phies Canon seems to have opted for a ‘do ev­ery­thing’ model, while Nikon seems to have cre­ated a model for land­scape/prod­uct pho­tog­ra­phers who want ex­tra-or­di­nary de­tail­ing in their images. The 22.3 MP Canon can go up to 6fps ( good for wildlife and bird pho­tog­ra­phy for ex­am­ple), and with a very large Buf­fer, while the 36.3 MP Nikon can­not do bet­ter than 4fps at full res­o­lu­tion and with a small Buf­fer. Land­scape and prod­uct pho­tog­ra­phers gen­er­ally do not need faster fir­ing rate, while wildlife/bird ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phers need a higher fir­ing rate. There is of course more to con­sider apart from what has been just men­tioned, and hence, as I said, let’s wait and watch.
