Has the top LCD panel on that stunning new Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera passed across your vision? The folks who have it in their hands disclose that that light can leak through that spot and confuse the camera’s Automatic Exposure (AE) sensor and honestly speaking Canon is also not refusing them is not disagreeing with them. In fact the outfit has admitted the issue itself. “In extremely dark environments, if the LCD panel illuminates, the displayed exposure value may change as a result of the AE sensor’s detection of light from the LCD panel,” a Canon product advisory reads.
Before you take another on your decision or think of returning your $3,500 investment or canceling your pre-order I must bring it to your knowledge that this won’t be an issue for all shooters, rather it’s an issue for the shooters who takes clicks in low light and with that backlight turned on. According to the early owners, in normal scenes, the amount of light produced by the backlight is insignificant. Still, considering how well the 5D Mark III performs in low light, we can see why Canon would want to move quickly to fix the issue. Although the company hasn’t yet promised any fix to it but proclaims it’s “now examining the countermeasures” and promises to post an update to its website once those countermeasures are arranged.
