Ok don’t get too scared. And bear with us for some math about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III.
The not-too-serious video below by Ryan Mense does some vey basic math.
The Canon EOS-1DX Mark III does 16 fps, and has a buffer for 1000 shots. That means the buffer can hold 62.5 seconds of shooting.
The EOS-1D X Mark III shutter mechanism is rated for 500,000 shots. According to the figures above, you can fill the buffer for 500 times before reaching max shutter time (500,000/1000 = 500).
Multiplying the 62.5 seconds of shooting the buffer can hold with the number of times you can fill the buffer (500) gets you 31,250 seconds: 62,5*500=31,250.
31,250 seconds are 520.83 minutes are 8 hours 40 minutes and 48 seconds.
That’s it! :-)
