Four years in the making, this Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is the ultimate creative tool with features that allow you to capture unrepeatable moments. Keeping up with the pressure, the 1D X MkIII delivers the moment even in tough and poor lit conditions.
Utilizing the next generation of advanced CMOS imaging technology, a custom-designed full-frame sensor features 20.1 MP image resolution providing the ideal balance between image quality, speed of workflow and performance. Delivering increased dynamic range, increased advanced noise reduction and faster readout of imaging data, compared to its predecessors.
Working in the field when missing a shot isn’t an option, capturing the one is possible with up to 20fps shooting in live view and 16fps via the optical viewfinder. Shoot up to 20 full-frame 20.1-megapixel images per second when shooting in live view mode. The 1DX MkIII will capture the shot utilizing either its mechanical shutter for true motion or an electronic shutter for completely silent shooting.
A Revolutionary AF system that is fast, accurate and precise whether using the optical viewfinder or the 3.1- inch touchscreen. Bursting at the seams with new technology, a dedicated CMOS sensor is used solely for autofocus which improves the accuracy, precision and allows for more focusing points. Taking care of the AF processing is a dedicated DIGIC 8 processor which only caters to the AF when the optical viewfinder is in use. Identifying different sports is possible with the deep-learning algorithms programmed into the 1DX MKIII. Eye and Face detection has been joined by advanced tracking that tracks athletes even when they are wearing goggles or a helmet. Boasting 191 AF points with 155 of them being cross-type for extra sensitivity, ideal for on-point focus when shooting fast-moving subjects in low light conditions. Dual Pixel CMOS AF is also implemented in the 1DX MkIII which sees focus capable pixels over the entire height of the frame with 90percent of its width.
With a native ISO sensitivity ranging now from ISO 100 to ISO 812,900 and is expandable to ISO 50- ISO 812,600. Gaussian low pass filter (LPF) is also featured, reducing moire’ more effectively.
Featuring a single DIGIC X image processor, the 1DX MkIII achieves new levels of performance for photographers to get the job done. Power efficiency is improved, providing battery life that is, in fact, more than double that of the EOS-1D MkII.The DIGIC X is the brain behind the deep learning AF and it runs the 1DX Mk III’s in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer capabilities.
Shoot full-frame 4K video at 60fps and record footage internally using the 10-bit HEVC/H.265 codec with C-log or 12-bit Raw. 5.5K Raw Video can also be recorded internally straight to the CFexpress cards which deliver unprecedented image quality. More natural colour gradation and dynamic range which lets you see detail in the highlights and shadows that are 12 stops apart. Movie Digital IS with an effective 5-axis image stabilisation when shooting handheld smooths out shake. The advanced mode detects and corrects for motions such as walking with the camera or tracking subjects.
Providing plenty of choices in terms of file formats, there are CR3 Raw files which allows you to shoot either uncompressed, which maximizes image quality or compressed which saves up to 40 per cent in fie size. JPEG and HEIF files are the other files formats available when having to transmit your images quickly utilizing JPEG is the best and HEIF files provide improved image quality compared with JPEG but is roughly the same file size.
Built-in Wi-Fi provides an ideal source of communication with your smart devices and PC’s whether in studio or location. The Camera Connect app and Digital Photo Professional when installed onto smart devices or tablets can be used to transmit, browse, retouch and edit images on the move. For trackside and pitchside photographers who transfer images back to news agencies via the available wired ethernet connections as they shoot, the 1DX MkIII has a lighting fast gigabit ethernet socket that transmits data twice as fast as the 1DX Mk II.
