A testament to your craft

The finest EOS-1D X camera with game-changing technologies

Built For Mastery

Craft and precision – 2 essential elements that bring about mastery. While craft comes with experience, precision is only possible with state-of-the-art technologies.

Speed, focus and exposure are necessary for photographing subjects that are fast moving with unpredictable movements. That’s why, EOS-1D X Mark III is fitted with a newly developed imaging system with our most advanced AF algorithm to date that makes it possible for professional photographers to attain sharp, vivid and high-resolution images.

Best Movie Shooting Performance in the History of EOS Series

4K and HDR are the most common movie format standards today. Videos shot with the EOS-1D X Mark III are suitable for news reporting and also can be used to produce creative HDR video materials.

To effectively record footage in 4K and HDR, the camera must have the capacity to handle high volume of resolution and colour data. The EOS-1D X Mark III supports 4K UHD/DCI movie shooting with a full-frame sensor range and can also record in 5.5K RAW movie and Canon Log (YCbCr 4:2:2, 10-bit) formats.

DIGIC X is a newly developed image processor that is up to 3.1x faster than the image processor in the EOS-1D X Mark II. As a result of the processor’s high-speed capabilities, you can expect:

• Improved the resolution of images
• Reduced noise in the high ISO range
• Better image output from in-camera digital lens optimiser

Up to 3,869 AF positions

Autofocusing is more precise and easier with a greater AF coverage spanning approximately 90% (horizontal) x 100% (vertical)* of the image display area.

You now have up to 3,869 selectable AF frame positions to choose from during manual selection, and up to 525 AF segments during automatic selection when Face detection + tracking priority AF is enabled. Subject tracking is now smoother and more precise than ever.

Live View Shooting

The EOS-1D X Mark III is equipped with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Canon’s unique autofocusing technology. This makes focusing and tracking with the camera smoother and faster when shooting in Live View mode, a feature that is greatly useful when shooting fast moving subjects such as sports and wildlife.

Up to 191 AF points

Equipped with a newly developed high-resolution AF sensor, the number of AF points has been increased to a maximum of 191 points (up to 155 cross points). In addition to allowing the user to precisely select the desired AF point, subject tracking is also smoother and focusing accuracy is improved.

Optical Viewfinder Shooting

AF is the key to maximizing image quality

You can now maximise the 35mm full-frame sensor to enjoy wide-angle 4K video recording without crop at 60p/50p (NTSC/PAL). 4K video recording is supported by Movie Servo AF and electronic IS for more focused and stable footage.

For professionals, you can shoot in both 4K UHD (3840 x 2160, 16:9) for broadcast and the 4K DCI (4096 x 2160, 17:9) format for cinema.

Excellent Movie Shooting Functionality

The EOS-1D X Mark III’s prowess extends beyond stills to videos. A combination of the latest technology such as Canon Log from our Cinema EOS System and DIGIC X and production-friendly features let you shoot high quality cinematic 4K movies easily and professionally for the big screen.

Strong and durable

For professionals out on the front line, the EOS-1D X Mark III is the hardy and reliable camera needed to withstand unpredictable weather and terrain. Built with a sturdy magnesium alloy body complete with dust- and drip-resistance around critical areas, the EOS-1D X Mark III’s robust camera system is ready to tough it out so you can travel worry-free on every assignment.
