Canon announced the start of development of the third-generation EOS1D X Mark camera. The new flagship model is suitable for shooting sporting events and wildlife.
The EOS1D X Mark III will receive a new deep-focus AF algorithm that enhances tracking stability and accuracy, providing sharpness for every shot. The updated AF sensor is about 28 times superior to that of the EOS1D X Mark II.
In Live View, the user will have access to 525 AF areas that use the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. These areas cover approximately 90 to 100% of the sensor area. In this case, the same algorithm is used as when working with the optical viewfinder, but the possibilities of frame construction are expanding.
The camera supports a higher frame rate – five times more than the previous model. The model also received a new CMOS sensor and DIGIC processor, which provide improved image quality even at high ISO values and support the creation of photos in 10-bit resolution using the HEIF format.
The new model transfers data twice as fast when using the built-in Ethernet module. The rest of the EOS1D X Mark III is similar to its predecessor: shooting in 4K resolution at 60 fps, the presence of built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
