Final Gear Note entry from the Digital Shootout 2012
When I first began shooting DSLR's underwater, I started with a Nikon D100, but then switched over to the original Canon 5D when it came out. I quickly became a fan of the Canon and have been shooting it ever since. I dabbled with 5D Mark II a little, moving on the to 7D, used the 550D and the 600D a bit, and am now to the 5D Mark III. When the 5D Mark III came out, I was pleased that Canon took the best of the 7D design and merged it with the best of the 5D Mark II, upping the ante on focus performance with an blazing fast 61 point autofocus system. Top that with a video system that takes advantage of the best low light, high ISO performance in its class and the result is pretty much everything I want in a camera.
