Should work just fine in the 5D3 or any other Canon DSLR that uses the N3 connector.

While many of the features could be built in, one of the main point of a remote is specifically to get the controls OFF the camera so that youre not touching the camera body in anyway thus reducing vibrations and shake. Obviously with automated control happening that could be done within the camera body and could be built in, however a timer remote doubles as a remote trigger to keep the user from touching the camera at all to trigger the shutter.

That and its really not THAT bad having the remotes connected to the camera body. I have done it for years with many bodies and its really not that inconveinent. I just have a little square of Velcro on my tripod leg and one on the back of the remotes.
