Canon has just announced the release of the new Canon EOS-1X Mark III.
I guess a good start would be to give you a comparison between the Mark III and Mark II. We were blown away with the release of the Mark II and I’m sure the EOS-1D X Mark III won’t be anything less than exceptional based on these specs.
The EOS flagship model: Boasting the highest-performance and most advanced features of any Canon flagship model to date.
A new era in autofocus speed and accuracy
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III features a brand-new AF sensor with 28 times more resolution than its predecessor, using advanced AF algorithms with deep learning technology for unparalleled focus tracking in any situation. And in Live View and video, there’s the added advantage of Dual Pixel CMOS AF across approximately 90×100 % of the sensor with 525 AF areas. With AF over a wider EV range focusing truly has never been more accurate and versatile.
Outstanding stills and video
With a new Canon CMOS sensor and powerful new DIGIC processing, image quality even at high ISO is taken to even greater levels of quality along with 4K video at 60p plus the options of capturing RAW video or 10-bit video with Canon Log, both recorded internally to CFexpress cards. A new bright viewfinder ensures you are connected to your subject in real-time with zero lag.
High-speed camera communications
Delivering captured content quickly is the vital next step for a professional. This is why the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy and GPS for seamless communication. With double the transfer speeds of the EOS-1D X Mark II via the built-in ethernet port or through the optional WFT-E9, and with a revised user interface for simpler and more intuitive operation, the new EOS-1D X Mark III is designed to get the job done faster than ever before.
Always ready to perform, whatever the situation
The EOS-1D X Mark III has been radically upgraded for superb performance, not only offering a blistering 16fps frame rate with the optical viewfinder but also 20fps using either the mechanical or electronic shutter in live view mode with full AE and AF. The camera is engineered to excel in all areas, with dramatically improved battery life using the LP-E19 battery, new illuminating buttons and an all-new AF point selection control within the AF-ON button in addition to the multi-controller. All in a magnesium alloy weather-sealed body.
