Only the best DSLR will do when you’re a professional photographer working in the field. Canon’s new flagship, the EOS-1D X, is all that and more, offering an unparalleled combination of speed, resolution and image quality. The newly developed full-frame 18,1 megapixel CMOS sensor offers exceptional flexibility, allowing photographers to shoot a wider range of scenes and subjects in high resolution. Its redesigned architecture offers an incredible ISO range of 100 – 51 200, expandable to 204 800. It’s the first camera to feature dual DIGIC 5+ processors. Up to three times faster than standard DIGIC 5, each processor is designed to manage huge levels of data while simultaneously reducing image noise. They enable continuous shooting up to 12fps with 14-bit A/D conversion and full camera operation.
You can record Full HD (1 920 x 1 080p) movies while accessing the camera’s full range of manual settings to control exposure, focus and frame rate. Plus, it comes with a durable magnesium-alloy body and protective sealing around all the controls and cover seams to keep dust and water where it should be – on the outside. Price: about R65 000.
