Exposure change phenomenon caused by displayed panel on EOS 5D Mark III addressed

An issue with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III‘s top display panel leaking light, therefore causing exposure detection issues, has been acknowleged by Canon. Although the issue is only apparent in extremely dark conditions it does affect the exposure levels, meaning images can be correctly exposed after being checked on the panel.

Although Canon has yet to release a firmware upgrade or any advice on how to circumvent the issue a statment on the Canon US website confirms the company is investigating. For more information head to Canon’s website.
