In Camera HDR test shots from the Canon 5D Mark III....

I just got to shoot with the 5D Mark III last night and I have to say that it is pretty sick!! I could have used another couple of hours more to get more familiar with it but I have to say that I am really impressed with the little time I had!! The 61 point AF system is crazy and I didnt even really tap into its ability at all. The in camera HDR feature is really cool and I am happy with the results. Here is one of the test shots with the In camera HDR function. 3 images @ -2, 0, +2 and composed in camera. I did my usual levels and curve adjustments in photoshop....

5D MARK III

Thanks to my buddy J for letting me help him break in his brand new 5D Mark III a week before everyone else!!! Here it is seen with my Canon 14mm 2.8L attached....

More Canon 5D Mark III Test Shots

10,000 ISO in camera +/- 2 EV handheld HDR shot with the 5DMarkIII.... As you can see, even at such a high ISO, there is very little noise! Im definitely Impressed!! Especially with the fact that it is possible to achieve this kind of result without a tripod at night... Thats insane!!

Are you doing these with RAW files or jpegs?

Raw files... In camera HDR converts 3 Raw files into 1 jpg. I have a ton of raw images I am trying to look at, but adobe needs to release the update so lightroom can read them. Currently LR4 does not recognize the 5DIII raw format...

I was going to ask if you used a Tripod for those .. you said you did NOT ... LOVE IT !!! Can't wait. I hope I get mine before I leave for Italy on April 29th !!!!!!!! Must do HDR for the Roman Coliseum (without tripod - Italy doesn't allow Tripods without extortion for a "PERMIT" !! ) !!

How many shots can you take with the RAW HDR mode, by the way?

The only one taken without a tripod was the 3 shot HDR at 10k ISO... all the others were taken with a tripod.

I used the "Natural" Setting

from the short time I had with it I could only figure out how to do a 3 shot HDR in camera. There was a menu function that allowed you to turn on bracketing up to 7 stops, but it only allowed 3 in the "HDR mode" even after I changed the setting. I need more time with the camera to figure out exactly how to work it. The menu's are elaborate!!!


I still have yet to figure out a way to open the camera raw files. LR4 does not support the RAW codec for the 5D III yet so if anyone finds a way please let me know!! I would really like to see some raw files out of this baby!!

Alright ;) I had the impression you could do up to 9 but wasn't sure if that was in jpeg only or if you could do it with RAWs so it's less of a PITA.

Also what did you use for the NR settings when it outputs to JPEG via the RAW files? Does it give you an option for that? Sorry for all the questions :)

I didnt see that function so if there is one it was set to the factory default for these images. There is an Auto Align feature that helps correct for shifts when handholding HDR... I had that set to auto...

NR should be at whatever you've set it for for normal JPEGs. Same for vignetting and HTP and all the other gadgets. From what I've read the HDR option is only 3 shots, bracketing does go higher but that's more for you to do your own later... These look MUCH better than the HDRs out of my NEX. I also love the fact that you get the HDR done in camera but you keep the RAWs on the card as well. As a landscaper these is a great option to merge the files in camera basically, so I can see what the 3 raws will look like once I process them myself later.

I totally agree!!! If I can figure out how to open these raw files, Il process the same images manually and see what kind of result I can get...
