Canon EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR Camera (Body Only)

The ultimate EOS is here, making way for a new era in autofocus speed, accuracy and precision — the EOS-1D X Mark III. Offering the highest level of performance an EOS DSLR has ever possessed, the EOS-1D X Mark III changes the game for serious photographers around the world, boasting a powerful new 20.1 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor, combined with a cutting-edge new DIGIC X image processor, for truly outstanding stills and video.

20.1 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor

Featuring a Canon-developed 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx.20.1 effective megapixels, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera is engineered with a new imaging system, designed to capture sharp and detailed images, even in low-light scenarios. This results in noise reduction in dark portions of the image even at high ISO speeds, and increased sensitivity that contributes to the EOS-1D X Mark III's high-speed image capture rate, accelerating frame-to-frame performance. The new sensor also includes Dual Pixel CMOS AF for high-speed, precise AF during Live View still and movie recording.

Low Pass Filter

The EOS-1D X Mark III features a newly developed four-layer low pass filter that provides 16-point separation. This not only helps to suppress moiré and colour distortion, but also improves resolution.

New DIGIC X Image Processor

Replacing the two DIGIC 6+ processors from the previous EOS-1D X Mark II camera, The EOS-1D X Mark III camera is the first Canon EOS camera – in the DSLR series camera line – to feature a powerful new DIGIC X Image Processor, which helps to enhance fine detail from the added low-pass filter.

ISO range of 100-102400; Expandable to 50-819200

Delivering high standard and expanded ISOs, and a score of options to enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations, The EOS-1D X Mark III can shoot at expanded sensitivities down to ISO 50 (L) and up to 204800 (H1), 409600 (H2) and even 8192000 (H3) (for stills). Beyond the obvious advantages of its wide ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark III has automatic ISO settings, found on the dedicated ISO menu. Minimum and maximum ISO settings can be specified, as can a user-defined range, plus full auto and manual.

New 191-point AF System

The EOS-1D X Mark III camera is equipped with a collection of 191 AF points, which allows the photographer to manually select every point, as well as select a variety of AF Zone Area selections. Covering virtually the same amount of the picture area as the previous 61-point system AF array. The EOS-1D X Mark III camera also features a new technology called EOS iTR* AF X which helps to track a subject with excellent accuracy, including impressive Face Detection AF and new Head Detection AF — and even offers the added benefit of Eye Detection AF in Live View mode or while shooting video.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

Adding to its powerful internal design, and ideal for sports photography, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera’s fast and intelligent Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features an incredible 3,869 manually selectable AF positions**, helping to ensure speedy, accurate and consistent AF all throughout approximately 90% x 100% of the image plane. Able to detect shifts in movement at the pixel level, Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables continuous automatic AF and AF tracking that enhances overall camera operation for sharp still images and smooth, accurate focus transitions in movies.

AF Area Coverage of Approx. 90% x 100%^

The EOS-1D X Mark III camera features an expansive focus area of approx. 90% horizontal and 100% vertical^ when working with select EF lenses. With older EF lenses, or with Extender types I and II, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera focuses approx. 80% horizontally and 80% vertically – This means fast and impressive focusing.

AF Points and AF Area

The EOS-1D X Mark III camera features a developed AF system with a maximum of 3,869 manually selectable AF positions**, which covers almost the entire image sensing area. The EOS-1D X Mark III camera can also be configured to focus on specific areas, using an extended range of selectable modes that include 1-point AF, Expanded AF Area, Zone AF and Large Zone AF in addition to the conventional Face+ Tracking AF.

High-Speed Continuous Shooting

Delivering incredible performance at speeds of up to 16 fps*, and up to 20 fps* in Live View with AF/AE tracking, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera is loaded with technologies that help facilitate speedy operation at every step of capturing that superlative image. The EOS-1D X Mark III camera features a mirror mechanism designed for precise operation with reduced vibration even at incredibly fast speeds.

20 fps in Live View

The EOS-1D X Mark III camera’s Live View shooting offers captivating performance possibilities and can capture RAW, JPEG or – for the first time in an EOS Camera – HEIF (HDR compatible) images at 20 fps. Especially helpful for wildlife photography, journalism and situations where the photographer needs to remain discrete, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera features a selectable silent shutter mode. With a fast AF/AE system, DIGIC X image Processor and high-speed recording with its new Dual CFexpress card slots, helps ensure that camera operations are performed quickly and precisely.

4K 60p with Canon Log

Thanks to the DIGIC X Image Processor, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera offers advanced recording features such as 4K (DCI) at 59.94 fps (cropped/uncropped), and 4K UHD at 59.94 fps (uncropped). Canon Log helps to reduce heavy shadows and blown out highlights, delivering movie images with approximately 12 stops of dynamic range for excellent shadow and highlight detail.
