It’s the best low-light DSLR we have yet tested. A near-perfect tool for the still shooter, it can double as a top gun for the videographer. And while it’s a new model, it’s based on a time-tested workhorse for serious shooters, amateur and pro alike. It’s the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and as the camera “that best refined or redefined photography,” it’s our Camera of the Year for 2012.Satoshi
