    the eos 1d mark iii is a professional 10.1 megapixel digital single lens reflex camera (dslr) camera body produced by canon. the eos 1d mark iii was announced on february 21, 2007[3] and is the successor of the canon eos-1d mark ii n and was first released in may 2007. in late 2009, the camera was succeeded by the canon eos-1d mark iv. one of the main benefits of the new mark iii, over the previous models, was the added functionality of live view, allowing users to take pictures while looking at an lcd screen. while it had the same outdated software as the older 1d series cameras, it had a much improved button layout, which is still used today. it also had improved wireless capabilities (with the optional wft-e2 wireless adapter) over the mark ii. the new wft-e2 was much smaller than the previous wft-e1 for the mark ii. the new transmitter could now also connect via a usb port. this allowed the optional addition of a gps unit and wired pc connectivity.

The EOS 1D Mark III is a professional 10.1 megapixel digital single lens reflex camera (DSLR) camera body produced by Canon. The EOS 1D Mark III was announced on February 21, 2007[3] and is the successor of the Canon EOS-1D Mark II N and was first released in May 2007. In late 2009, the camera was succeeded by the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV. One of the main benefits of the new Mark III, over the previous models, was the added functionality of Live view, allowing users to take pictures while looking at an LCD screen. While it had the same outdated software as the older 1D series cameras, it had a much improved button layout, which is still used today. It also had improved wireless capabilities (with the optional WFT-E2 wireless adapter) over the Mark II. The new WFT-E2 was much smaller than the previous WFT-E1 for the Mark II. The new transmitter could now also connect via a USB port. This allowed the optional addition of a GPS unit and wired PC connectivity.
