Hosts: Frederick Van Johnson and Derrick Story

Episode Overview:

On this special episode of TWiP, Frederick recently had the chance to chat with Derrick Story from the Digital Story to get his thoughts on pricing for the new Canon 5 D Mark III.

The 5D Mark III was announced last month and started shipping late last week. This upgrade to the popular 5D Mark II features an improved AF system, better video controls, better low-light performance, dual card slots, and host of other improvements.

Before you rush out to add this latest camera body to your collection, we ask if it is worth the $1000 price increase? Derrick shares his thoughts on the matter with the TWiP audience and reveals what he thinks is behind the recent price increases from Canon.
