Canon announced the launch of the EOS-1D X Mark III this week, boasting features specifically designed for capturing high-paced, detailed photographs for sports events and wildlife.
With dramatically improved AF tracking performance, image quality and communication capabilities, the camera represents the pinnacle of Canon’s EOS-1 series. This new flagship camera features incredible industry-leading shooting speeds of up to 20fps with AF tracking, along with improved high ISO performance the camera achieves ‘the shot’, every time.
Photographs aren’t the only impressive content this camera can create. The impressive 5.5K 12-bit RAW video internal recording – the first non-cinema Canon EOS series camera to have such feature – allowing professionals to capture top-quality video as well as stills.
“Throughout the years EOS-1 series cameras have been unrivaled in their reliability and capability, which is why I’ve been using them since 2002 with the EOS-1D. In my line of work speed is everything, so I’m delighted to be using the EOS-1D X Mark III which features noticeably improved fps, outstanding autofocus and quicker communication abilities – because, in the competitive industry of sports photography, a matter of milliseconds could mean the difference between a picture that makes it to the back pages of national newspapers or doesn’t,” said Eddie Keogh, professional sports photographer and Canon Ambassador.
Other features include the optical viewfinder provides photographers better connection to the subject, with clear and bright lag-free viewing, it features the next generation imaging sensor, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth and a magnesium alloy body to withstand extreme weather conditions.
The first stock will be available in South Africa at the end of February 2020.
