The camera features highly improved basic functionality made possible by revamped core components, including a newly developed 20.1 million effective pixel1 full-frame CMOS sensor, a new DIGIC X image processor and a dedicated AF sensor. Thanks to these improvements, the EOS-1DX Mark III is capable of a high maximum continuous shooting speed of approximately 16 frames per second (FPS) when using the optical viewfinder and up to approximately 20 FPS using live view with AF and AE tracking. What’s more, the camera’s new “High-res AF sensor” makes possible a maximum of 191 AF points (155 point cross-type AF) that facilitates fast signal readout speeds for highly accurate autofocus when shooting with the optical viewfinder.

In addition to smooth, high-resolution 4K/60P video capture, the EOS-1DX Mark III also supports YCbCR 4:2:2 / 10bit / Canon Log2, making possible the internal recording of video with superb gradation and color reproduction. The camera can also internally record RAW video, enabling users to leverage the full advantages of RAW data, including resolution, gradation and the ability to make precise adjustments, as well as edit and extract still image files from video data.

Using the camera’s wired LAN connectivity or the new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9B (sold separately), users can reliably transfer image files at high speeds. The camera body also features a newly redesigned external component configuration that results in a weight3 of 1,440 g, a reduction of 90 g compared with its predecessor model. The EOS-1DX Mark II (released in April 2016). What’s more, the EOS-1DX Mark III is equipped with two CFexpress-compatible card slots. By supporting the CFexpress card format, the camera realizes faster write speeds that even allow for continuous RAW + JPEG shooting.
