Canon 5D Mark III Shipments on Hold While Issue Investigated

HR_5D_MARKIII_EF24-105_BGE11_3Q_CL.jpgThe Canon 5D Mark III is an impressive camera for sure, but according to reports from across the internet, there is one case where it falls flat. When shooting in dark environments or under bright conditions, light can leak into the camera, causing a 1/3 stop exposure difference. This can be due to the sunlight coming in or even the light from the LCD - a detriment when shooting in a dark studio.

The folks at Canon are aware of the issue and they've informed retailers that shipments of the Mark III will be on hold until the issue has been fully investigated.
