Canon announces EOS-1D X Mark III and RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM

Canon has just officially developed a new generation flagship SLR camera: Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. As of now, the new camera pixel is unknown but it is confirmed that the camera will come with 4K60 P video shooting.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III uses a new full-frame sensor and a new digital processor that supports full core dual pixel focusing. The sensor has 525 AF that cover 90 % horizontally and 100% of the vertically. It has a maximum continuous shooting speed of 16 FPS when using OVF and that of a 20 FPS when screen framing.

The camera comes with a backlit button which is potential enough to capture a 10-bit HEIF photo with a higher color gamut. The AF focus module has a sharp increase in AF pixel density which is 28 times that of the 1DX II. The focusing performance is based on the automatic algorithm of deep learning so it can capture shots in the dark environment.

A new method of automatic use of the AF-ON button has also been added. The camera uses the same LP-E19 of 1DX II battery but the battery life has been improved.
