A new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor confirms the previously suggested release date. Canon already announced the development of the EOS 1D Mark III but did not reveal all specifications or the release date.
According to Nokishita the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III and the WFT-E9 wireless file transmitter are now listed on Canon’s latest product list.
The release of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is expected around the beginning of February 2020, and there are no doubts left about that. An authoritative source confirmed it will be at the beginning of 2020, February is the natural choice (CP+ happens). General availability should be ready in April 2020.
Below is the list of what we know for sure so far about the EOS 1D X Mark III:
- All-new CMOS sensor
- Dual-pixel 525-point CMOS AF with 90/100% coverage horizontally and vertically
- New Digic Processor
- 10-bit HEIF file capture (in addition to JPEG and Raw)
- Max 16fps capture via viewfinder, and 20fps in live view (with AF)
- Dual CF Express card slots
- 10-bit, 4:2:2 4K/60 video with C-Log
- Backlit buttons
There is still uncertainty about the sensor resolution. While both 20MP and 24MP are rumored, we think the latter is more likely. Another persistent rumor says IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) will be featured in the EOS 1D X Mark III. We have no doubts that Canon is working on IBIS, given the remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with it and the fact that another Canon exec told the world about. But it’s likely that the first Canon camera to feature it will be a mirrorless, and not the flagship DSLR.
Stay tuned for the next Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor (all 1D X Mark III rumors).
