Canon announces the release of the EOS-1D X model – the new generation of professional SLR ( DSLR ) photo cameras. Offering a unique combination of speed, resolution and image quality, EOS 1D-x is the newest innovation in capturing photos and Full HD videos.
Whether you take photos in a studio, on the sporting ground or in any other location, this model is dealing for any professional photographer.
This new model represents a new era for the EOS system and replaces the EOS-1D Mark IV and EOS-1DS Mark III models. Combining a 18,1 P full frame sensor, a completely revamped auto-focus system and powerful measuring technologies with the new dual DIGIC 5+ processors, this camera was created to offer quality and ease of use.
Setting New Standards
EOS 1D X offers a extended set of technical specifications improvements. The new CMOS Full Frame 18,1 MP sensor offers a bigger flexibility, allowing photographers to capture a bigger variety of scenes and subjects at a high resolution. The new architecture offers a incredible ISO, 100-51200, which can be extended up to 204800, while the DIGIC 5+ processors offer noise improvements and 2-sop – for exceptional quality photos, without noise, even when the light is not so good.
The new 61 points wide-area auto focus system offers a high sensibility, assuring sped and precision. With 41 cross type points, including 5 dual cross type points, the auto-focus system offers great accuracy while the AF pre-settings helps the photographer capture difficult photos.
Canon EOS 1D X comes with a new RGB measuring system which offers incredible accuracy levels. The 100,000 pixels RGB sensor is connected to the AF system and fueled by the Digic 4 processor, which detects faces and colors to ensure correct exposure levels and improved AF tracking.
Equipped with the newest processing technology, Canon EOS-1d X is the first DSLR photo camera that benefits from dual DIGIC 5+ processors. Offering three times more performance than standard DIGIC 5 processors, each processor was created to work with high volume of data and reducing noise at the same time.
Combined with the 16 channels read-out interface, the two processors allows you to take photos at 12fps with 14-bit A/D conversion and complete control over the photo camera – the fastest DSLR available on the market right now.
Great DSLR for Videos
You can record Full HD videos with the help of the full frame sensor which comes with some manual settings for controlling exposure, focus and number of fps, while the sound level can be adjusted on the LCD screen.
Thanks to the power of the DIGIC+ processors, the number of moire artifacts were significantly reduced, while the EOS Movie ensures that you have more recording options, generating a new file once the 4 GB limit has been reached. The new video codec maintains the best recording quality, limiting the compression so that users can benefit from a high level of information for post-processing.
Created For Professionals
Two controllers and a touch wheel, for use in the movie mode, provides ease of use, while some buttons allow users to configure their camera as they please by creating shortcuts to the settings they use most.
Canon EOS – 1D X comes with a very resistant body built out of magnesium alloy which offers protection against accidental hits. The last implementation of the Canon EOS Integrated Cleaning System uses a technology adapted from the Canon lens, using similar vibrations to ultrasonic engines to remove dust particles from the sensor.
A improved triggering mechanism ensures extended durability, offering more than 400K triggering cycles so that photographers can be sure that the camera will handle some difficult conditions.
