Remember when we told you we saw an image of the 1DX Mark III but couldn’t tell show it? Well, that person got back to us today with a little more details on the 1DX Mark III.
We already know it’s fast, has great video specifications, built like a tank, and even shoots RAW video. You can probably use it to prop up your car instead of a jack in an emergency. It’s very likely to be Canon’s best 1 series DSLR, and hopefully not the last of it’s kind.
The source mentioned a few tidbits to us;
- The battery life is nothing short of amazing, much better than the 1DX Mark II.
- The silent shutter mode in liveview is absolutely silent.
- The eye AF works incredibly well (via liveview we are assuming)
- The AF-ON trackpad is so innovative, works fast and it very precise. In the source’s words, “it’s a real revolution. Nobody will be using the old joystick”
We still don’t have some details that some would like to know, such as the megapixels. According to the source, “it was impossible to find out at the time, Canon may be testing different resolutions right now”
Also, according to the Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun which is a very respected newspaper in Japan, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be released in early 2020.
We hope we get more details on the 1DX Mark III soon. Stay tuned.
