Power On and Shoot

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.
