Some new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumors surfaced on the web after Canon’s development announcement.
So far some of the previously rumored features have proven to be unreliable (6K video, 30fps, IBIS). Some people in the industry thinks Canon did the development announcement for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III to counter the speculations of the rumor mills.
The latest rumored specifications for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III are of the vague nature, and for that reason might be even correct:
- The battery life is nothing short of amazing, much better than the EOS-1D X Mark II
- The silent shutter mode in liveview is absolutely silent
- The eye AF works incredibly well (via liveview we are assuming)
- The AF-ON trackpad is so innovative, works fast and it very precise. In the source’s words, “it’s a real revolution. Nobody will be using the old joystick”
It’s plausible that Canon might introduce these features on their next full frame flagship.
We now know for sure that the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be released early 2020, most likely in February.
