Canon announced the launch of their flagship camera’s next iteration: 1DX Mark III.
The Canon 1DX Mark II is a hell of a camera that many photojournalists, sports photographers, and more rely on, but it gets a bit long in the tooth as well. Until switching solely to mirrorless, the industry expected at least one more generation of top-shelf professional DSLRs from Canon. The company has just reiterated that with the Canon 1DX Mark III production announcement.
The Canon 1DX Mark III Camera will feature a new auto-focus algorithm that optimizes deep learning technology to improve its already excellent performance, along with 525 Live View areas using the Dual Pixel CMOS AF module, covering 90% of the image. Users should anticipate a continuous speed of 16 fps using the optical viewfinder and up to 20 fps using both the mechanical and digital shutter and Live View.
Dual CF Express cards would raise the raw burst range to five times that of the Mark II, although I have never seen my Mark II fail to keep up with a blast, no matter how long I have been firing.
Most of the modern cameras enabled with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. If Canon omits one, it would be a shock. If the camera registered under code DS126771 in Asia is indeed the 1DX Mark III, it comes with both Wi-Fi (IEEE802.11b/g/n) and Bluetooth 4.1 according to Nokishita.
The Canon camera will also feature a new sensor shooting as opposed to JPEG in HEIF (High-Efficiency Image File), a 10-bit file format, along with conventional raw output. It will have 4 K 60p on the video side with 4:2:2:2 10-bit: C-Log internal recording. The Canon 1DX Mark III Price starting from Rs 4 Lack.
Canon has not set a release date but hopes to see the camera at next year’s Olympics in the hands of photographers.
