The wedding photography directory SnapKnot is giving away either a Canon 5DMKIII or a Nikon D800 to a lucky someone! I’ve been eyeing the MD MKIII (3)for a while because it fixes several of the issues I have with the MKII(2), namely the autofocus. The MKII’s terrible autofocus has been killing me on trail running and skiing shoots. It, for a long time, hasn’t been an issue with shooting climbing because it’s mostly slow paced. But when you’re having to track moving subjects it’s pretty piss-poor. The nine-point autofocus is almost no improvement over my 7 year old 20D! The MKIII(3) has a 61-point High Density Reticular autofocus that is lightyears ahead. My only initial complaint about it, having not tried it out, is that the autofocus points do not extend far enough to the edge which is where most of my subjects tend to be.
But anyway…enough rambling. Big thanks to the SnapKnot wedding photography directory for offering this great camera giveaway! Click this link to take you to the giveaway.
