It took a long time saving to get to the 5DIII. I am very excited. I have been using 40D for a long time. From the looks and feel of it, this one will stay with me for even longer time. The full frame is really something to get used to and the IQ is simply amazing. I am just starting starting to set this camera up. Any useful tips would be appreciated. I am going to do a lot of street photography. Now I know how people feel when they post about their new cameras....I am in love....

Hi, congrats on the new camera. I remember your feeling a year ago ☺

There us a good thread on the various 5diii settings. It's called"... let's talk settings!". Have a read, it should be a good start.

Enjoy.

I've tried to copy a link below...

Congrats on the upgrade! I just recently upgraded from the 40D to the 5diii as well! I didn't realize just how limited I was with the 40D's ISO!

Hey there AEImages I am happy for you getting that 5DIII I have one as well. I also have a 1DX I been mainly using my 1DX until a few weeks back I decide to use the 5DIII and i must say that is much quieter then 1DX, and the pictures still look great with it.


Make sure you go in the custom setting and enable your focus joy stick {that is what I call it} that will allow you to change your focal points on the fly. Always have your memory cards mirroring each other that way you have a back up incase one card takes a drive. Enjoy...

At the current prices for the 5D3 I got one too for $2000. Not sure if they will get any lower. Huge difference when it came out for $3500.

I just picked up one that is a couple of months old with under 400 clicks and saved a couple of hundred off the ebay deal.

Congrats! I also went from a 40D to 5DIII. Love it! Still keep the 40D for a back-up, or for when the wife and I both want to shoot.
