Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is Announced During CES 2020 in Las Vegas


During CES 2020 last week, Canon unveiled its new flagship Full Frame DSLR: The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Before it’s official announcement in Las Vegas, the rumoured EOS-1D X Mark III was the focus of much speculation. Now we have all of the details to delight over, let’s take a look at the brand-new features!

In 2016, Canon launched the EOS-1D X Mark II, which is still, even today, an incredible piece of kit and used for both stills and video shooters. With the launch of the EOS-1D X Mark III, right in time before the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer, professional sports photographers will be delighted by its arrival.

Dubbed ‘the ultimate creative toolkit’, Canon cite that even when conditions are tough and the lighting is poor, the EOS-1D X Mark III lets you capture winning images.

It boasts a new Full-Frame 20.1MP CMOS sensor, and along with the new DIGIX X processor and sensor low pass filter, the camera is capable of shooting from 100 up to 102,400 ISO (extends up to 819,200) while producing cleaner and less noisy images.


However, it’s the radical new autofocus system, which makes this camera a true hybrid of mirrorless and DSLR technology that enables professional photographers to truly get the best of both worlds. Combined with 5.5K internal 12-bit RAW video, a game-changing new Smart Controller, support for HDR stills and video standards plus CFexpress support, it is in many ways the camera of the future.
