More Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Information Leaks (IBIS still rumored)

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Ii

We are getting closer to the announcement of Canon’s next top dog flagship DSLR, and some new bits come in.

A new set of rumored specifications for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III surfaced over the web. According to the source, the specifications below apply to a working prototype of the EOS-1D X Mark III.

  • 28.1mp full-frame CMOS
  • Up to 30fps still shooting
  • Dual DIGIC 9 (would be the first time the EOS-1D series would introduce a new processor)
  • IBIS
  • New and larger rear LCD, the source said it looked brighter too.
  • February announcement

This is the second time that IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) is mentioned to be featured on the EOS-1D X Mark III (all rumors). And that sounds a bit weird to us. Why should Canon introduce IBIS on a top tier DSLR, which will most likely be bought by people already owning lots of expensive and image stabilised lenses? Wouldn’t it make more sense on a mirrorless camera? IBIS on a future Canon mirrorless camera has already been suggested by a Canon exec. For sure Canon filed a remarkable collection of patent applications dealing with IBIS. IBIS is coming to Canon cameras, that’s a sure thing. But will the EOS-1D X Mark III be the first to feature it?

However, announcement of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is expected in February 2020, so stay tuned for more.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III To Feature IBIS, 6K Video, Resolution Jump?

Canon Eos-1d X Mark Ii

IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) seems to be a big thing for a lot of people. We are not entirely sure we get the reasons for the hype.

However, latest Canon EOS-1D X Mark III rumor has it that the next iteration of Canon’s flagship will indeed have IBIS on board. That Canon will feature IBIS on future cameras seems to be a pretty sure thing given all the pertinent patents.

According to the source, a prototype of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is already in the hands of selected people. The prototype is said to have the following features:

  • 6K video without a crop
  • Dual CFExpress cards
  • Significant jump in resolution for an EOS-1 series camera
  • New DIGIC processor. Canon doesn’t usually introduce a new DIGIC processor in the EOS-1D series, but that will apparently change this time.
  • IBIS is in prototype cameras

Most likely the EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced in 2020, before the Summer Olympics. As soon as we have a more precise date for the announcement we’ll update you.

Stay tuned.

A Professional, EOS-1D X Equivalent Canon EOS R Model Might Come Earlier Than Expected

Canon Eos R Firmware Update

While we are still waiting for the high resolution Canon EOS R model, the rumor mill has suggestions about the EOS R model coming after.

Apparently Canon has decided to accelerate the development of a professional EOS R model, i.e. a mirrorless camera that can compare with Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark II.

The same rumor suggests this EOS-1D X equivalent full frame mirrorless camera could be announced along with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, and it could happen in the first or second quarter of 2020. To be honest, Canon itself said they might make such a camera.

Our take: take it with a grain of salt. EOS R related rumors abound and so far the reliability is very low. The source of the rumor also ranks it low.

We now know what gear Canon is set to announced next. Stay tuned.
