|That’s how extraordinarily responsive the EOS-1Ds Mark III is. The super-fast, approximately 0.2-second startup time puts you instantly in the last shooting mode set and a mere 55ms shutter release lag time means you’ll never miss a moment. Dual “DIGIC III” combines with single-line, 8-channel reading to deliver up to 5fps* continuous shooting with a maximum burst of 56 shots — incredible performance considering such high-resolution images**. The high-speed shutter maxes out at 1/8000 sec. and provides an eminently usable X-sync of 1/250 sec.
||You’ll hardly hear it when shooting in the new Silent Single Shooting mode, which reduces both shutter and reflex mirror noise for those occasions when you don’t want to intrude.
