New Canon 5D Mark III in Stock in Thailand

  • New Canon 5D Mark III in Stock in Thailand

The Canon 5D Mark II heralded a new era for DSLRs on a couple of points: its high ISO capacity borders on night vision and its video looks a lot like a 35mm film camera's. Now that system cameras (like the Sony NEX-7) and even some compact S have caught up on those two points, the brand new 5D Mark III is forced to raise the bar once more. You’ll never need a flash or tripod again (its ISO now goes all the way up to 25,600, expandable to 102,400), but most of the other changes will really only appeal to serious photographers: remote flash control, six frames per second continuous shooting, video time-coding, weather-sealed body and, 61-point autofocus system. Available for B109,900 (body only) at 2/F, Foto File, MBK Center Phayathai Rd., 02-620-9200--that's already nearly 10,000 less than the original Canon list price.

There are only 99 of the cameras available. 

It's three times the size of the Bangkok bathhouse. 

As the controversial Chao Phraya River Promenade comes ever closer to fruition, old communities along the river are living in fear of eviction. Among those potentially affected are Udom Khamking, 67, and Chalong Songbundit, 34, of Mittakham community, who work as divers hunting for sunken treasures in the Chao Phraya River. We speak to them about their unusual profession, which is still going strong after more than half a century.
