Originally billed as a ” development announcement in October 2019, Canon’s third-generation DSLR flagship EOS-1, with the X Mark ii is equipped with a new 20.1-megapixel sensor, an ISO range from ISO 50 to ISO 819,200 with the new DIGIC X processor, which is 3.1 times faster than the Dual DIGIC 6+ processor, the EOS-1D X Mark II. The Reflex mirror assembly has been re-designed to have a minimal bounce up and down while the shutter mechanism, and the burst speed of up to 16 fps with the optical viewfinder. These improvements are the result of input from professional sports, wildlife, photographer, and wedding photographer, with the primary target audience for the new camera.
Who is it for?
It’s not a matter of chance, as in Canon, with every new generation of its canon EOS-1D X’s with a little bit ahead of the Olympic games. In essence, they have been specially designed for professional sports photographers, but with its predecessor, the canon EOS-1D X Mark II, which we reviewed in November 2016, the new camera, it will also appeal to professional photographers, who work in different genres of music.
The amateurs are going to be able to justify spending more than $11,000 on the camera, and even fewer will be needed for the more advanced features of the camera. There are a lot less expensive cameras, which one is more suitable for a more serious lover.
Professionals in the field of development of the hybrid-company, as it combines video production, photography, and enables you to find the new camera is a much more capable and well-rounded resource than its predecessor. It also provides great benefits to internet file-sharing, and networking opportunities.
Build and Ergonomics
Physically, there was not a lot has changed since the original EOS-1D X, which was a good thing, because the pro photographers don’t want to be a radical re-design of their work-horse ” of the film. But, at the same time, as the size of the Mark-II and Mark iii models are the same, the new camera’s and 90 grams in weight.
Just as in the past, the EOS-1 cameras, the Mark III, it makes use of a lightweight magnesium alloy, and a metal-mirror box assembly for the supports of a large, heavy, to the super-telephoto lenses. Extensive weather-sealing, and gasketing of the body, the body of the buttons, knobs, handles, and a card, and the battery doors to prevent the intrusion of dust and moisture in the body.
To date the shutter of the EOS-1D X Mark III is now in the durability tested to 500,000 in assets, up from about 400,000 in the Mark II model, which was the highest rating to date. The friction reducing treatment has been applied to high-strength carbon fiber, the shutter blade surfaces, and the wet-type brakes, a mechanism that is used at the end of the curtain, to go, to have a better speed and reliability.
The replacement of the CF and Cfast slots as the previous model, with the slits for high-performance CFexpress cards, and it has helped to put in the new cpu, boost memory card with a transfer rate up and increases its performance. The general consensus is that the processing is the performance of the new camera is a 3.1 x faster, and continuous processing speeds and up-to-the-380x faster than two DIGIC 6+ processors.
The power consumption is reduced. The table below gives a comparison of the canon EOS-1D X Mark ii, its predecessor.
Note: the canon EOS-1D X Mark III is compatible with the CFexpress card Type B, measure, and will not be used for any other type of memory card being used. XQD cards may not be used with this camera, and there are currently no plans to support it by means of a firmware update.
The mirror drive, the EOS-1D X Mark III is a brand-new design with a stronger, more robust, mirror, frame, and, as a result of the joining of the head and the sub-mirror (see below). Both of the mirrors of the motor are controlled and connected to the brake in order to rest, at the same time.
The Sub-sites, but it is greatly reduced, which means that the system has time to stabilize the image, the light rays are focused on the image sensor. In addition, the speed of the drive, the levels of the control of the motor is increased, the mechanism of which is more shock-resistant.
These changes make for a more stable display, with the limited black-out of the frame-to-frame, along with for up to 16 fps of continuous shooting is available when the seeker is ready to be a mirror to the lid and a fixed semi-transparent mirror-like structure.
New Smart Controller built into the AF-On button for fast control of the AF Point selection. It’s like a mini pad it with sensors to detect the position of the finger, and move the focus to the field at the bottom. (In the standard 8-way Multi-controller, that is also available, and can be adjusted to allow for quick manual adjustments to the AF-points and / or Regions.)
Ultimately, though, the EOS-1D X Mark III uses the same LP-E19 battery as its predecessor, and the power management feature has been improved. While the Mark II has a rating of about 1210 photos and charge with the evf or on the 260 pictures/(expense) in the Live View mode, the Mark III’s claims to be a valuation of about 2580-photos and charge with the evf or the 610 shots/(charges), or more than, a four-hour film shooting in Live View mode.
More than 100 improvements were made to the canon EOS-1D X Mark III is, however, just as with the previous model, and most of them can be found in the house. In addition, the camera can be not only in the shutter mechanism, and is durability-tested to 500,000 debt, up from about 400,000 in the Mark II model. Other major updates include the following:
While the resolution of the sensor, is virtually the same Canon designed and manufactured, 20.1-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS Sensor and features specific circuitry on the image on the website, in order to improve the control of noise at the pixel level.
The individual photosites have an increased sensitivity to light, and to contribute to a reduction in the overall sound, especially at higher ISO settings. The read-out circuit is significantly accelerated in the sensor, improve performance, for a shooting and video recording, as well as to reduce the rolling shutter effect of the latter.
A High level of Detail, a Low-Pass Filter for the sub-sample of the incoming light, the 16 individual beams, the sensor, and uses a complex algorithm is used to find the average value of the results.
