Canon announced the launch of the EOS-1D X, its latest flagship professional D-SLR.
The 18MP camera is built around a full-frame sensor capable of shooting at up to 14 frames per second (12fps with AF), allowing it to replace both the 1D Mark IV and 1DS Mark III in Canon’s lineup. Despite looking like previous 1D cameras, it has been extensively reworked (it includes more professional video features than any other Canon D-SLR). Canon’s EOS D-SLR cameras and accessories have a long-standing legacy of providing high-quality results to professionals in a wide range of markets, including sports, nature, cinematography, wedding and commercial studios. However, the 1D X won’t be available until March 2012 because of various factors including floods in Thailand.
