Canon 5D Mark III (Body) $400 Discount

If you haven't already heard the news, Canon has announced that it will release a firmware update to the Canon 5D Mark III that will allow uncompressed HDMI output (article here). Nothing to get too excited about just yet since the release date is expected to be released on April 2013.

Still, even without this feature the camera is amazing and shines especially well in dim lighting. If you've been eyeballing the camera, there's another $400 dollar discount on the Canon 5D Mark III (Body Only) via eBay Daily Deals (Click Here)

  1. This camera was over priced from the start and should have been called the 5D mk2.5 but my old mk2 has 750k acuations and will soon be my backup camera. At $2,800 I think it's worth it.

  2. I'm absolutely certain that this is Canon's strategy to start slipping the price of the mk3 unofficially because it is obviously not selling. With those markdowns the price has already unofficially slipped to the 2700-2800 level. And firmware for uncompressed HDMI out! Like they could have done it on the first place! Obviously their pricing strategy didn't work and they totally misread the market that the dSLR revolution created for them. Let's all thank Blackmagic for that. But is 8-bit 4:2:2 really uncompressed, or just "less compressed?" Isn't RAW really uncompressed? And 12-bit at that, like Blackmagic has?

    @Joel - The listing says 'Brand New Factory Sealed with Full USA Warranty', ships from New York, and seller has good feedback. Seems pretty legit.

    Gray market? I've put an order in for mkii years ago by a ny co. only to find out they were not legit. Just wondering how legit this is.

    So what's Cannon's deal with this camera. It seems to be on sale every other week now. I hope this isn't the future of Cannon. Charge way more than last year, then discount it after the initial rush of orders are filled.
