Canon EOS-1D X Mark III And Sony a9 II Have Same Dynamic Range

Canon EOS 1D X Mark III Rumor Canon Cameras Big Game

Some good news about the new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Will this stop the Canon-smashing when it comes to dynamic range? Probably not. But then, dynamic range is a measure that already has little importance in real life, so I guess at the end of the day it doesn’t matter.

Photons to Photos allows you to compare the dynamic range of cameras. Below you see graph comparing the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III with the Sony a9 II. Difference is so little that you can say they have the same DR. Moreover, the EOS-1D X Mark III seems to do better up to approx. ISO 600, the Sony does slightly better at very high ISO.

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Will Break Down In 8 Hours, If Used Continuously (but wait!)

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Review

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! :-)
