We were told a few months back the EOS-1D X Mark III was being tested with 6K video capabilities. However, Canon only mentioned 4K recording during their development announcement.

We have been told that 5.9K RAW external recording is still on the table. A final decision on the feature had not been made at the time of the source testing the camera.

On a side note, the EOS-1D X Mark III will record full sensor 4K, so that means no crop. 4K will also have DPAF.

Could this possibly be to “future proof” what will likely be the last of the EOS-1 series DSLRs?

We are NOT claiming this is definitely coming to the EOS-1D X Mark III. We just know there are still some big surprises in store for this camera and are just reporting what we have been told.
