5D Mark III or D800?
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.
