Strangely, I keep reading around the web many people believe that while the 1DX will be the still photographer's camera (obviously true), the MkIII will be the video camera.
Chuck Westfall, Canon Tech Advisor on the 1DX: 'It will be the most desirable product for people wanting movie shooting in a DSLR."
Of course Canon's tech advisor is going to say this, and as of the moment it may be true. Canon is trying to use the 1dx to squeeze some juice out of the video market, but it's clear there is going to be a better option coming soon.
If the advisor said "the 1DX is the most desirable product for movie shooting on a DSLR, but we have an even better camera coming soon that will be cheaper," no one would buy the 1DX for video.
