Will my 5D Mark III and 580EX function together seamlessly?

Been playing/testing the functionality of my 5D Mark III and 580EX (not 580EX II). The camera doesn't seem to recognize ETTL from the menu. Are there limitations between these two devices? 

Hello jdd1701,
The Speedlite 580EX II and EOS 5D Mark III are compatible in every way they can be, meaning any EX Series Speedlite will work with any EOS camera.  You wouldn't be able to adjust the settings through the camera menu like you would with, a Speedlite 600EX, for example.

  • I just bought the canon 5d mark iii and my photoshop elements 10 wont read my raw files. I want to buy photoshop elements 13...is this compatible with my new camera?

    I just bought the canon 5d mark iii and my photoshop elements 10 won't read my raw files. I want to buy photoshop elements 13 but want to make sure my camera is compatible with it first. Thank you for your help!

    Photoshop elements 10 should be able to open those files if you update to camera raw 6.7
    Which operating system are you using?
    Adobe - Photoshop Elements : For Windows : Camera Raw 6.7 update for Elements 10

    Also, photoshop elements 13 will open those files as well.

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Tamron lens

    I have just ordered a EOS Mark III body and a Canon 70-200 F/2.8 II USM IS lens. Now I want a wide angle zoom lens to complete the package. I'm interested in a 24-70 f/2.8 lens. Canon's version does not have an image stabalizer and is over $2000. Tamron offers the same focal and aperture in their 24-70 f/2.8 with an image stabalizer for around $1300. Are there any issues concerning using a Tamron lens on a Canon body?

    Really folks, when I joined this forum I had no idea it was for only Canon related issues and did not mean to insult the hosts. I am a Canon gal. I also own a Canon 7D. I wish all my equipment could be Canon. I have just spent a great deal of time and money researching and purchasing a Canon 5D Mark III and the Canon 70-200 F/2.8 II USM IS lens. I don’t want to settle for less. But now to complete the package I really want a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. I would have no doubts whatsoever about the Canon even at their price if it had IS. I do not want to regret not having the f.2.8 as I may be in some low light situations during my travels, or the IS as I may not be able to handle a camera and lens of that weight without a tripod. I bought the best tripod I could find made of carbon fiber( I won’t mention the name). It is compact, very light and has a load capacity of 25lbs. I plan on using it most of the time but there will be times that I just won’t have time to set it up.
    I have read a lot of reviews and 90% of them regret not having IS. After comparing the Tamron with the Canon on other sites that test different products, there didn’t seem to be too much difference in performance of either lens. Canon was favored as it should be, but for the price comparison and no IS it failed to make that big of an impression. I think the manufacturers of Canon know this and will probably come out with another version that includes IS. As Bob said…“if a competitor's lens is well regarded for whatever reason, it's in Canon's interest to know that and to understand why. And if a Tamron lens makes a 5D3 affordable by someone who would otherwise buy a Sony, I think Canon would gladly take his money.” That’s an excellent point. And Bob, I have considered the Canon 24-70 f/4 but I really feel that maximum aperture over the total focal range is a plus that only 2.8 can give.
    Ebbigs 1, I have considered the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 but it doesn’t have IS. The price certainly is appealing, but the Tamron even though more expensive is a better lens (from what I‘ve read). I do agree about the L quality and durability of the Canon lens however and I would buy it if not for the IS. I am getting ready for a long trip and am in need of a wide angle zoom lens as soon as possible.
    I came here to find out if anyone knew if there were any issues with the Canon mount accepting a Tamron as I have never used anything but a Canon lens on my Canon cameras. Thank you for reading my rather long winded response and I apologize if I have offended anyone.

  • Canon 5d Mark III and Lightroom 4.3 tethered shooting issues.

    I bought a new Canon 5d Mark III and upgraded my lightroom to 4.3.  I have been having issues shooting tehtered.  I'll shoot and get some frames coming in and when I start plugging away the program bar will spin and I'll only get a few grey frames and it just kind of freezes.  I don't know what to do. 

    LR4.3 was supposed to improve Lightroom's built-in tethering, but in my experience it still has some reliability problems - especialy in recovering from broken connections (not just unplugging USB but also if the camera loses power by sleeping or when changing a memory card).
    Sorry if some of this is basic info, but I'd recommend you try a different USB cable - the cable end that connects to the camera is easilly damaged in a way that makes a connection possible, but unstable (I strongly recommend finding a cable with a 90 degree downward bend at the camera plug). Also, we often have to send a camera body in to have the USB port serviced. Canon has begun to provide a small rubber boot to reinforce the USB connection at the port, but they won't sell the part outside of a repair service. Be sure to use some kind of stress-relief for the cable at the camera. Tethertools sells one, but I've made mine DIY with a little string and a small binder clip... nearly free. Finally, be sure your cable is less than about 15 feet. If you need to go longer, I've successfully tethered with two cheap powered repeaters from Monoprice, but no single link should be over 15 feet.
    Oh yeah, also set your camera to not sleep for a long time.
    Beyond all that, is using EOS Utility for capture and LR Auto-import a viable option for you? It works very well for me. I use the Apple "Image Capture" app to tell my system to launch EOS Utility whenever the camera is connected - and set EOS Utility to launch into remote capture/camera control mode. It's very stable and recovers from disconnects or camera power loss and the remote camera control/live view can be pretty handy.
    Another plus is that if you do need to disconnect USB and shoot to card, you can just copy new images from the card to your watched folder and they are imported to Lightroom with the same settings and location.
    The only downsides for me is that there is no way to have a crop apply to new images using auto import -- and I have to re-save my develop preset each time I make a change. Using the "Same as Previous" option under develop settings in native tethering is so great for this and I'd love to see a similar option added to auto import.
    Hope this helps.

  • Just got me a new camer canon 5D mark iii and now I can't send the images from lightroom to open in photoshop anymore

    Hi Mark, I have lightroom and Photoshop CS6 and worked with it with my old camera, Canon 60D and had no problem
    now I got me a new one, Canon 5D Mark iii and I can import the images into lightroom but I can't not send it from lightroom to photoshop. Also tried to drag and drop the picture image directly into photoshop but it wouldn't allow me to do so.
    What do I have to do to get that working?

    In Bridge, go to Edit->Preferences->File Type Associations

  • IPhone and  Canon 1DS Mark III and Nikon D3

    Neither Apple's iPhoto or Aperture recognize the top of the line Canon Mark III 1DS, or the Nikon D3. I have tried to import RAW images from both cameras to no avail. What is the delay?
    Thanks, Norm

    I believe that RAW support for the Canon Mark III AND the Nikon D3 was just added in OS 10.5.2 release

  • 5D Mark III and SD Card Speeds

    Is there any truth to the claims in this link that the SD Card speeds are limited by the 5D Mark III to 133x?

    Nothing is more simple than greatness ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

    No Richard, sorry not really helpful. It’s a simple question – Does the camera (5D3) default to the slowest card inserted which would be 133x?

  • Will Canon 5d Mark III Raw files work with Lightroom 3

    I have just tried to upload Raw files from a Canon 5d Mark III to Lightroom 3.  The file were not recognised.  I believe there were some update issues but my Lightroom 3 is updated.  Do I need to get Lightroom 4?  I need to know urgently as I have a shoot tomorrow and will go back to my Mrk II if I can't get an update for Lightroom 3.

    LR3 DOES NOT support Canon 5D3, 1Dx, Nikon D800 or Nikon D4.
    Newer cameras wont work in it, and require LR4 for RAW processing (Tethering in LR4 STILL is not supported)
    LR4 is massively buggy, and slow to a point where it is practically unuseable for anything other than a handful of images to edit.
    Also, LR4 will not tether to the new cameras (for that, try ANY of the competing professional software, Aperture, Capture One - They work just fine)
    You can, convert your 5D3 files to DMG, and then open them in LR3 that way, or you can get LR4 and deal with it's massively awful slow issues that Adobe has still not resolved 5.5 months after launch, or you can use other software.
    Those are your options.

  • Canon 5D Mark iii and Lightroom 3

    I recently got a Canon 5D Mark iii. I have Lightroom 3.0 and I cannot open the images in Lightroom.  Do I have to upgrade to Lightroom 4.1?

    Yes, but you will find it easier to upgrade to Lightroom 5. That is the current version. Your other alternative would be to download the DNG converter and convert your raw files to DNG. The choice is yours.

  • EOS C100 and 5D Mark III - How to use together, match settings, etc.

    I shoot with both of these cameras and wondering if anyone has a reference for matching the picture settings. For example, on the C100, there is a custom preset setting 'EOS Standard' that I assume corresponds to the 'Standard' picture style on the 5D Mk III. But, what if I want to shoot cinema locked, HDR or some other way?

    As a matter of fact, I had the 5D Mark II bundle at first, and Then I installed the new Mark III bundle with version 3 of the EOS utility. None of it is working - in terms of creating a new preset.
    It seems wrong that the window that opens with 'Register User Defined Style' has a drop down with all of the default presets already in the camera. That drop down should not be there, should it? There should only be the choice to import a new preset or maybe edit an existing preset. If you wanted one of the defaults, you would select it from the previous menu window.
    For your purposes, I think I'd drop back to version 2 of the EOS Utility. Version 3 is very new and is aimed at compatibility with the rather idiosyncratic version 4 of DPP. EOS 3 has worked well for me so far, but if I were having trouble with it, I'd revert.

  • Mac Lion 10.7.3, LR 4.1, CS6, Canon 5D Mark III and all the plug ins upgraded! Need the RAW update!

    My workflow has tripple because nothing wants to run smoothly! I am so bent because Adobe, Canon, Apple and every other plug-in software provider can't seam to get on the samer fricken page and I've spent BIG $ over the last 2 months trying to make everything run better... Where is the latest RAW?
    I Purchased the Upgraded Adobe LR 4.1, CS6 Beta & got the Canon 5D Mark III, Mac Pro server update to Lion, WHEN is next dot release Camera Raw? My workflow has trippled in time because of this issue. I'm so frustrated with having to convert images in a slowed up piece of crap canon software package and then wait another decade for the newest LR to load the images I could crap fire! Come on Adobe, where's the release? After a few grand you'd think we'd get a better response time. As for Canon, they are not consistant with community software sharing and can kiss my *!! because to leave Adobe hanging sux!
    There should be new laws that penalize jerks that screw with workflow!
    Time is money, let's go Adobe!

    Let's see:
    5 Minutes of research would have told you about 5DMKIII support availabitliy but that is too much time to spend additionally researching a 15K purchase.
    You paid 79.00 for the LR Upgrade and 14,000 plus for the rest of the package.
    You bought a camera that was released after the 79.00 software.
    You are using a Public Beta for the other software (no cost to you)
    A Camera Raw release candidate with support is availabe. I(again no cost to you
    Yet you say:
    "Come on Adobe, where's the release? After a few grand you'd think we'd get a better response time. "
    So far, you've paid 79.00
    Finally: this is a user-to-user forum-not a direct conduit to Adobe.

  • Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and Aperture 2?

    I was wondering if anyone using a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III can confirm if they're able to shoot tethered using Aperture 2? Though it's listed under the RAW support page, this model of camera is not supported in the knowledge base article called: Tips on tethered shooting.
    I tried the demo and though it registered my camera, it wouldn't allow me to capture. Not sure if it's a limitation of the demo, or ignorance on my part. If you know for certain one way or another, please share.

    To the best of my knowledge the tethered shooting does not work with any of the newer Canon DSLRs. A workaround that may be good for you is the Aperture hot folder script that I used with Aperture 1.5. If you can't find t just hit the thread back.
