Canon has just launched what it bills as the ultimate interchangeable lens camera, the EOS-1D X Mark III. Boasting dramatically improved AF tracking performance, image quality, and communication capabilities, Canon’s new flagship camera offers shooting speeds of up to 20fps with AF tracking, the ability to shoot in complete silence, and improved high ISO performance. The EOS-1D X Mark III’s new AF system and sensor sports 28 times the centre resolution of its predecessor to address professional photographers’ need for greater accuracy and focusing on subjects in a wider range of scenarios.

The camera also offers 5.5K 12-bit RAW video internal recording – the first non-cinema Canon EOS series camera to have such feature. The 20.1-megapixel sensor is accompanied by the newly developed DIGIC X processor. The CMOS sensor also offers Canon’s widest ISO range, with extended settings from ISO 50 to ISO 819,200. The camera is also the first EOS model to support the HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) which allows images with 10-bits of data to be saved in a file the equivalent size as a JPEG with less compression artefacts.

The EOS-1D X Mark III uses the next generation of memory cards, CFexpress, providing write speeds over three times that of that previous fastest CFast cards, and making shooting bursts of over 1000 RAW images possible. The camera features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, along with built-in GPS. With its magnesium alloy body, The EOS-1D X Mark III is capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions via phenomenal weather-sealing.
