Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Summary

The mark III features a series of upgrades specifically for professional and advanced amateur users, combining the best from both mirrorless and DSLRs in a true hybrid camera body. Specifications include:

New 20.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with huge dynamic range and ISO 100-102,400 expandable.

DIGIC X image processor for blazing speed, face recognition and superb image quality

Real-time, lag-free optical viewfinder shows events as they happen

The EOS-1D X Mark III offers an host of upgrades over the mark II ensuring the flagship Canon DSLR outperforms even the most accomplished systems. In Live View there are 525 AF areas using the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. This covers 90% x 100% of the brand new 20.1MP image sensor for true full-frame AF capabilities. This uses the same autofocus algorithm as the optical viewfinder, ensuring photographers get enhanced flexibility when framing subjects, whether a race car on the track or a bird in flight.

The 1D X Mark III also supports significantly faster frame rates with the new Digic X processor with full AF and AE, using either the optical viewfinder (up to 16fps mechanical shutter) or Live View (up to 20fps both mechanical or electronic shutter). In addition to this are the camera’s dual CF express card slots, which enable 1000 shot buffering with just two seconds to clear the buffer. This blistering speed ensures the needs of the most demanding professionals are met whatever subjects they are shooting. The dual card slots in the 1D X III can be assigned individually to either still photos or video for ultimate speed and flexibility.

Videographers can bring stories to life with full-frame 4K resolution at 60p. This presents a true hybrid camera for professionals working on multimedia projects, saving the amount of gear they need to bring to assignments. Capture 5.5K RAW footage in-camera, which opens up new creative possibilities for any assignment.

File transfer is both quicker and more secure than ever with Gigabit Ethernet, built-in Wi-Fi as well as low power Bluetooth connectivity. Built in ethernet is twice as fast as with the 1D X II. You can also connect to two Wi-Fi networks. If one goes down, the camera picks up other network automatically and continues file transfers. Add the optional WFT-E9 for enhanced 5GHz 802.1ac.

The new DSLR body is a clear example of Canon’s commitment to continually pushing the boundaries of innovative imaging and advanced technology. The magnesium alloy body retains impressive build quality and durability, which will be instantly useable having similar ergonomics to the previous generation. Weather sealing has been prioritised with upgraded protection from water, dust and humidity. Innovative button illumination allows photographers to easily see camera controls in dark conditions. Additional controls for selecting AF points are have been added, built into the AF-ON button. This enables photographers to change AF points on the fly for a greatly improved workflow as well as the addition of glove-friendly touchscreen functionality. For ongoing performance the EOS 1D X Mark III now boasts over double the battery life over the mk II version, at up to 2850 shots.
