Best. Camera. Ever!
June 08, 2013
I just picked up this bad boy three weeks ago and I have to say it is the holy grail of cameras.....simply amazing!!
I'm upgrading from the Rebel T3i (which was still a solid shooter for the price). The features of this camera are simply overwhelming...I am going to enjoy learning the ins and outs of every spec and button on this guy and look forward to taking some amazing footage.
My main reason for this purchase was for shooting video...I spent the better part of a year researching various models of video cameras before hearing the awesomeness of the Mark II, but when the MARK III was released I began saving my pennies and finally took the plunge.
The only drawback for this camera is the extremely high price tag and after months of price research, Henry's was the cheapest place I found....all in all the camera cost me around $5000.00. This included the Camera and lens combo, along with a CF card and lens filter and the Henrys Warranty.
Normally, I stay away from all warranties of any kind, but in this case it is totally worth it....You wouldn't drive a car without insurance, this is no different. extending the coverage from 1 year to 4 is amazing. Meaning I'll be fully covered from now until I'm ready to purchase the mark IV (if it merits the upgrade).
If can drop the cash on this beast of a machine, I say do it without hesitation....Every penny you spend on this camera is a penny well spent (granted thats 500,000 pennies, but seriously....buy this camera!)
