Canon already announced the development of their next professional flagship, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Still, here is a Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor for you.
Despite announcing the development, Canon did not disclose the sensor resolution of the EOS-1D X Mark III. 24MP were already rumored to come to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, and we just got another confirmation from a source we trust.
There are no real doubts left about the announcement of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. An authoritative source confirmed it will be at the beginning of 2020, February being a good candidate.
This is what we know for sure so far about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors):
- 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
Some sites claim IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) will be featured on the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. We think this is highly unlikely. There is no reason to doubt 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.
We are sure the next Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor will surface soon. Stay tuned. In the meantime there is an interview with the mastermind behind the EOS-1D X series to read.
