22.3 Megapixel full-frame camera bundle. Includes all parts for interfacing with Cyclapse system.
The Canon 5D Mark III is highly regarded for it's performance, but time-lapse applications are more concerned with endurance and image quality than with features. The 5D Mark III has a shutter life rating of 150,000 pictures, and has very high image quality!
One feature of this camera that may be compelling is the use of dual memory card slots. When using the Cellular Networking option, the cost of sending images via cellular data can be a factor. With this camera, you can direct the camera to send large files to the CF slot where they are saved on a large memory card, and direct compressed files to the SD slot where the WiFi memory card would be located. The data charges would be reduced but you would still have the ability to monitor the system remotely by seeing images as they are transmitted.
