- In this course, we're gonna use three Canon full-frame bodies to demonstrate how to optimize your Canon camera in the field. First up, we have the Canon 5D Mark III. This is a 22.3 megapixel body that came out in 2012. Now, it's still incredibly popular, and I see more of these on my workshops than any other Canon camera. It's a great all around system. Autofocus is fantastic, and it's used for all sorts of different things, from weddings, portraiture, landscapes, the works.
Next up is the Canon 6D. This is a more budget-conscious full-frame camera. 20.2 megapixels. The 6D has a slightly less robust autofocus system, which makes it great for landscapes, and it's why I've been using it for the last couple years. I also get to show off the brand new, 50 megapixel 5DS, or 5DSR. This body just came out in the summer. It's an exciting new entry in the Canon line, and there are some new features I can't wait to share with you.
Now, if you happen to own a crop-censored Canon body, like the newest Rebel, or a Canon 70D, or a 70 Mark II, for example, the menu systems are very consistent throughout the Canon line. So the videos that we're going to demonstrate for you today are gonna really be applicable to any Canon model. All right. We're gonna start off with back button focus, something that I love to show every client that I have, and something you can do with not only a Canon, but any camera that you have. All right. Let's get started.
In this course, photographer and educator Justin Reznick demonstrates a set of customizing strategies aimed at making a Canon DSLR far more responsive and effective. That way, you can focus on composition and artistic expression, and let your Canon handle the rest.
