Latest Technology News: The Canon EOS-1D X makes UK debut

The all new Canon EOS-1D X promises to be the next generation professional Digital SLR. If you are looking to upgrade your existing camera to a more professional model, find out more now.

The new EOS-1D X supersedes both the EOS-1D Mark IV and the EOS-1Ds Mark III and Canon claim that the new Digital SLR (DSLR) offers an unparalleled combination of ‘speed, resolution and image quality.’

The camera has a new full-frame 18.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor. It also offers an ISO range of 100-51200, expandable up to 204800. But what really sets this camera apart from much of the digital camera market however – and is likely to have pro photographers excited – is the fact that the EOS-1D X is the first-ever camera to feature dual “DIGIC 5+” processors.

This means that the EOS-1D X can offer performance up to three times faster than standard DIGIC 5; each processor is designed to manage huge levels of image data.

When it comes to shooting accurate, professional shots, the EOS-1D X has 41 cross-type points, including five dual cross-type points, giving considerable accuracy across the frame, while new AF pre-sets are specifically designed for shooting common challenging subjects.

Canon EOS-1D X: Shoot HD Movies

The all new Canon EOS-1D X also means that users can record Full HD (1920x1080p) movies from the full-frame sensor. The camera has complete manual settings for areas such as exposure, focus and frame rate, as well as adjustable sound levels.

As you’d expect with a great piece of new camera technology, the Canon device comes with a good 8.11 cm (3.2”) LCD screen. The Clear View II LCD screen offers a 1040k-dot resolution, built with anti-reflective glare and hardened, scratch-proof glass, to make viewing images in bright light easier.

Canon EOS-1D X: WiFi Capabilities

The EOS-1D X also supports WiFi and offers Bluetooth support for connectivity to external GPS devices. Importantly for professionals, the WFT-E6 offers secure transfer of images and video to an FTP server, or the ability to display content on a compatible screen over a DLNA connection, too.

“Professionals often shoot in fast-paced, high pressure situations, and the EOS-1D X provides the features and performance they need,” said Kieran Magee, Professional Marketing Director, Canon Europe.

“We’ve carefully listened to the needs of professionals and created a versatile, powerful camera that will meet the requirements of more photographers than ever before.”
