“The EOS-1D X Mark III will feature a brand-new AF sensor with 28x more resolution than its predecessor, using advanced AF algorithms with deep learning technology for incredible focus tracking in any situation. And in Live View and video there will be the added advantage of Dual Pixel CMOS AF across approximately 90×100 percent of the sensor with 525 AF areas. With AF over a wider EV range focusing with an EOS DSLR truly will never have been more accurate and versatile.”
“With a new Canon CMOS sensor and powerful new DIGIC processing, image quality even at high ISO will be taken to even greater levels along with 4K video at 60p, plus the options of capturing RAW video or 10-bit 4:2:2 video with Canon Log, both recorded internally to CFexpress cards. A new bright viewfinder will help connect you to your subject in real time.”
“Delivering captured content quickly is the vital next step for a professional. This is why the EOS-1D X Mark III will feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth low Energy connectivity and GPS capability 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 will be designed to get the job done faster than any EOS ever before.”
“The EOS-1D X Mark III will be radically upgraded for superb performance. Not only will it offer a blistering frame rate with the optical viewfinder including AE and focus tracking, but also dramatic improvements in Live View mode with the same level of accuracy, plus the ability to shoot using an electronic shutter. The camera will be 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.”
