Canon’s new action hero EOS-1D X Mark III

Canon Australia has launched the ultimate interchangeable lens camera, the EOS-1D X Mark III, offering professional photographers, videographers, and content creators limitless possibilities, at blistering speeds.

Boasting dramatically improved AF tracking performance, image quality and communication capabilities, the camera represents the pinnacle of Canon’s EOS series. Enabling moments to be captured like never before, Canon’s new flagship camera enables incredible shooting speeds of up to 20fps with AF tracking, the ability to shoot in complete silence[i], and features improved high ISO performance.

The EOS-1D X Mark III’s AF sensor sports 28 times the centre resolution of its predecessor to address professional photographers’ need for greater accuracy and focusing on subjects in a wider range of scenarios. What’s more, the camera offers impressive 5.5K 12-bit RAW video internal recording – the first non-cinema Canon EOS series camera to have such feature – allowing professionals to capture top-quality video as well as stills.

To ensure uncompromised performance in harsh environments, the EOS-1D X Mark III comprises Canon’s EOS-1 Series trademark build-quality, reliability, and weather sealing features and will also be backed by Canon Australia’s 5-year manufacturer warranty.
