Looks like the honeymoon period with Canon’s beastly 5D Mark III is officially over. Over the past few weeks some users have noticed that light leaking from its top-mounted LCD can affect exposure readouts, and now the company has confirmed that it’s indeed an issue. Essentially, the camera’s meter can experience a shift in the readout whenever the LCD’s backlight turns on in a dark situation — ensuring frustration when composing shots. There’s no word on how wide-spread the problem currently is, but Canon notes that it’s “examining the countermeasures” and plans to circle back once it has a solution. Interestingly, PetaPixel also reports that some folks have experienced the phenomenon when ambient light beams down on the panel as well. This isn’t the first time Canon’s had an issue with a shooter after its release, but hopefully a fix will be in soon. You’ll find more details at the links below, but while your here, let us know if you’ve got a Mark III showcasing the symptoms in the comments.
