We are getting closer to the announcement of Canon’s next top dog flagship DSLR, and some new bits come in.
A new set of rumored specifications for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III surfaced over the web. According to the source, the specifications below apply to a working prototype of the EOS-1D X Mark III.
- 28.1mp full-frame CMOS
- Up to 30fps still shooting
- Dual DIGIC 9 (would be the first time the EOS-1D series would introduce a new processor)
- New and larger rear LCD, the source said it looked brighter too.
- February announcement
This is the second time that IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) is mentioned to be featured on the EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors). And that sounds a bit weird to us. Why should Canon introduce IBIS on a top tier DSLR, which will most likely be bought by people already owning lots of expensive and image stabilised lenses? Wouldn’t it make more sense on a mirrorless camera? IBIS on a future Canon mirrorless camera has already been suggested by a Canon exec. For sure Canon filed a remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with IBIS. IBIS is coming to Canon cameras, that’s a sure thing. But will the EOS-1D X Mark III be the first to feature it?
However, announcement of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is expected in February 2020, so stay tuned for more.
