Gamechangers: Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the New iPad

Talk about a match made in heaven! The highly anticipated Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the uber-highly anticipated iPad have finally made their debuts. Both seem made for each other. The iPad 3--or iPad HD, whatever they are calling it--has the much predicted retina display previously touted on the iPhone and iPod. Given the new display, the iPad uses as a media display can be pushed into any filmmaking realm.

The Mark III is a step up from the Mark II. It has revolutionary features such as a silent shutter. As a still photographer and a filmmaker, I've never heard of a silent shutter. Since I'm too poor to afford either at this point, I guess I'll stick with renting.

It's nice to dream, though. Happy Filmmaking!
