Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Review
The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

Ok, I admit the title sounds a bit weird. But bear with us for some thoughts about the DSLR vs mirrorless debate, and the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

Dan Watson argues the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III beats them all when using live view or mirrorless mode. So, do we really need all those (upcoming) EOS R models? Let’s say that the EOS-1D X Mark III is the fastest still FF camera around with some outstanding video features. Ok. for sure it’s bulkier than even the largest MILC, but then: mirrorless cameras are not really small factor when using top tier lenses.

Have a look at Dan Watson’s video and sound off in the common section.

“When engineering and designing the new flagship camera, Canon’s top priority was collecting and implementing extensive user-feedback from a variety of professionals,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “In the end, the outcome is at first glance a familiar tool, but in reality, so much more; a camera unlike anything the company has introduced before.
