For networking, it looks like a LAN port with the option of wireless (with on-board bluetooth) and GPS adapters.

I like the idea of colour-based focus tracking with iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition).

I like this translation  "Operation of the shutter unit cleared the test for 40 million times." now thats what i call durable :D

Pffttt...  That's only 33 days at 14fps, you call that durable?

;)

Slightly larger than the IV

1D X
About 158 (W) × 163.6 (height) × 82.7 (D)
(interestingly) Mass: Undecided

1D Mark IV
156 x 157 x 80 mm (6.14 x 6.18 x 3.15")

Of topic but how did the Canon 'IXY 600F Pink Champagne' pass without notice!? They will only product 40 000 units!

no 1080 60p :(

I believe it will:

1,920 × 1,080 (Full HD): 30p/25p/24p 1,280 × 720 (HD): 60p/50p 640 × 480 (SD): 30p/25p * 30p: 29.97fps, 25p: 25.00fps, 24p: 23.976fps, 60p: 59.94fps, 50p: 50.00fps

Plus Timecode AND no more 12 minute limits on movie durations:

"When shooting SMPTE · (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers: Motion Picture and Television Engineers Association) to record time code to a file conforming to streamline the editing process. · FAT (File Allocation Table) exceeds the 4GB / 1 is a constraint on the standard files, new files Automatic partitioning features that can continue to record and automatically create a file..."

No, it won't. As the specs say: 1,920 × 1,080 (Full HD): 30p/25p/24p

The * is a description of the exact framerates for all the modes. 60p is under 720p.

Awesome!
I'll be buying two to replace my 1D Mark IVs.
I certainly hope this camera lives up to the hype. Canon has been plagued by Auto Focus missteps in the past and this appears to be another "newly designed" AF system. "Newly designed" hasn't always worked out so well for Canon with the exception of the 7D, but it looks like this new system will even blow that out of the water if it works as promised. I love my 7D so I'm really looking to put this new camera to the test.


 ??? You had problems with the 1D IV system? I used to have a 1D III with some problems that later got fixed but with my 1D IV and 70-200L II I actually find it hard to miss.

No I've never had any problems with my 1D Mark IVs, I was referring to the notorious 1D Mark III AF problems that seriously damaged Canon's reputation among sports shooters. That was the point in which many changed to Nikon and why they have gained a lot of market share on Canon over the years. Canon used to completely dominate sports photography (and to a degree still do).
Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

My mistake.
Can't believe it, though ... it should have that functionality!

If that's important to you, maybe the announcement on Nov 3 will cheer you up. :)

Hope you're right .... nonetheless, I think the industry will be thrilled with the ability to exceed the 12 minute record limit .... now were talking

glad to see this rumor panned out.  it's very promising for a higher-MP count 5D Mark 3, and the improved AF and unified line also means the 5D's AF can safely be boosted while still keeping significant product differentiation.  can't wait for next spring.

The 7D shoots 18 MP RAW files at 8 fps with dual Digic 4. If the Digic 5 is indeed 17 times faster and the 1D X has dual Digic 5 plus Digic 4 for metering, why can't it handle RAW at 14 fps? That's not even twice as fast at moving data as the 7D, unless it turns out to be foveon type sensor or something.

One thing I do like is that it has UDMA 7 support! It was killing me using the 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro (UMDA 6) on my 1Ds MkIII and wondering how fast it could get...now I can find out, and then some! :)

BTW, UDMA 7 is 100MB/sec (6 is 90MB/sec) and the only card that has that on Sandisk's line is that 128GB monstrosity that is $1,500.
