Canon has announced the arrival of their brand new flagship camera, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. The class-leading DSLR camera offers a powerful 20.1 Megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor, a newly developed DIGIC X image processor that captures top-notch image quality in a wide range of shooting situations. Photographers who are into Action & Sports, News & Documentary, Wildlife & Asian as well as Videographers who are into Commercial Video , Independent Cinema would appreciate this new flagship camera from Canon.
The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III uses the latest Canon AF sensor, offering increased pixel density for both vertical and horizontal directions by 28 times. This marks an increase of AF points from 61 points (used by EOS-1D X Mark II) to 191 points (suited for optical viewfinder shooting.) Compared to the Mark II, the Mark III’s latest camera’s sensor offers speed that is 40x faster. All 191 AF points support exposure of up to f/8 over the entire AF area, with 65 cross-type AF points at f/8, making it great for use with extenders, especially for wildlife or sports photography.
Photography enthusiasts will enjoy improved resolution, color reproduction and noise reduction from the Mark III’s new DIGIC X imaging processor that powers the camera. Its increased ISO speed of up to 102,400 retains the quality of the images even in low-light situations. A dedicated DIGIC 8 processor supports the camera’s AF management and control of the 400,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor.
The EOS-1D X Mark III is one of the first cameras to offer the HDR PQ HEIF, a 10-hit recording standard for stills that uses high-resolution and low-noise approaches versus conventional high-definition standards. HEIF files can be easily converted to JPEG (HDR PQ-quality) format and have a similar “feel” to those with HDR PQ. This feature eliminates the need for RAW development retouching and gamma adjusting process, particularly for photos with strong contrast or lighter tones in neutral-colored areas.
The latest from the EOS series reinvents burst shooting by increasing speeds to shooting for both RAW and RFAW+JPEG recording to help users capture decisive moments. EOS-1D X Mark III uses a new mirror system with a high-speed mechanism to retract and reset the mirror, combined with an optical system that displays images in real time to improve the camera’s ability to track moving subjects through the viewfinder, avoiding “blackouts” commonly experienced during high burst shooting.
It is also the first full-frame camera to feature 4K UHD (3840×2160, 16:9) video recording without cropping. It additionally supports the 4K DCI (4096×2160, 17:9) standard established by the Digital Cinema Initiative. Using the HDMI 4K 60p output/Canon Log 1-bit output, the camera can transmit 4K movie data to another device for display or external recording.
Supporting its high-speed shooting features, the Mark III stores images in the new dual CFExpress card slots – the leading format today in high-speed data transfer. This, alongside the camera’s extended buffer memory, delivers 1,000 shots (RAW). 5x more compared to the EOS-1D X Mark II.
True to its promise of speed, the Mark III uses built-in GPS receiver which supports SuperSpeed Plus USB (USB 3.1 Gen 2) transfer speed. This rate exceeds the transfer speed of its predecessor which uses USB 3.0. In addition, the camera now comes with built-in WiFi with FTP functions.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is designed to ensure mechanical strength for high speed continuous shooting and smooth operation. With a sturdy magnesium alloy body complete with dust-and-moisture resistance features and a shutter mechanism durability of 500,000 cycles, it is ready to tough it out to capture that singular, elusive shot.
The price of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is P399,998 and will be available in key Canon authorized partners nationwide starting March 2020. A special promo bundle is also offered involving a CFexpress 512GB card and reader by adding P26,698. Adding this bundle will save you as much as P7,000. Fore more information, visit https://ph.canon.
