Canon 5d Mark iii Settings

These are my settings and configurations for my Canon 5d Mark iii. I use these as my work horse bodies, these are strong and reliable. Great for road races, cheer sports, landscapes and portraits. These bodies can be found cheap on the used market, most can be found with low shutter counts and little to no abuse.
