Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Firmware Update Brings Lock-up Fix And 23.98p Video

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Iii Firmware

As promised Canon released a Canon EOS-1D X Mark III firmware update.

Among other, minor things, firmware 1.1.0 fixes the “lock up issue”, i.e. the EOS-1D X Mark III locks up when the electronic level is set to ‘Show’ in the viewfinder and the shutter or AF-ON button is pressed. A bit weird but it happens. The short video below shows the lock-up issue.

Firmware Version 1.1.0 incorporates the following enhancement and fixes:

  1. The option to capture full HD movies and 4K UHD movies in 23.98p frame rate has been added.
  2. The communication speed has been improved when connected via wired LAN.
  3. The “Browser Remote” function has been added.
  4. The function to transfer only protected images has been added.
  5. Corrects the phenomenon in which, when the electronic level is set to “Show” in the viewfinder display, in rare cases, the camera may freeze when operating the AF-ON button or shutter button.
  6. Corrects the phenomenon in which the Custom Shooting Mode settings may change when the shooting mode is switched.

Firmware Version 1.1.0 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.0.0. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.1.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

You can download firmware 1.1.0 here.

Is The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III The Best Mirrorless Camera Available?

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Review

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.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Announcement Next Week, Price And All The Important Specs

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Iii Firmware

Here are some more bits about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III.

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced next week at CES 2020. The price will be $6,499.

The EOS-1D X Mark III will have a 20MP resolution, and we are pretty sure this will stir a lot of heat on the Internet since the 1D X Mark II already had 20MP. Here are the most important specifications for the EOS-1D X Mark III, and as you can see there is some impressing stuff:

  • 20.1MP resolution sensor
  • 16 fps (20 fps in Liveview)
  • Up to 5.4K (5472 × 2886) internal RAW video recording
  • No crop in 4K or RAW recording
  • Autofocus not available when recording RAW or 4K/60p
  • 191 AF points (155 cross-type) in DSLR mode
  • Liveview AF focuses at -6EV, PDAF with optical viewfinder focuses at -4EV
  • No Dual Pixel AF when shooting 4K 60p or RAW video
  • ISO 100-102,400 (819,200 extended)
  • Dual CFexpress card slots
  • RAW Buffer: 1,000+
  • RAW + JPEG Large buffer: 1,000+
  • RAW + HEIF Large buffer: approx. 350
  • Price: $6,499

Wow, a 1000+ buffer on RAW shooting! But no DPAF at 4K/60p. Bummer. Also, it should now be sure that IBIS will not be on board.

Announcement next week during CES 2020. Stay tuned.
