If you consider yourself to be a camera fan, you may want to check out Canon’s latest model. The EOS-1D X camera is an excellent choice for professional photographers and the new snapper will be available to buy during early March next year.

The EOS-1DX will be targeting those with money to burn, as we’re hearing that the price will enter at around £5299, meaning that those of you who are looking for a more casual option at a cheaper price may want to look for an alternative.

Externals of the EOS-1D X are made using magnesium alloy materials, while there’s also a nifty weather sealing all over the camera as well, reports Pocket-Lint. If you have owned Canon’s previous 1D model, it’s important to know that the weight of the new 1D X is apparently the same, meaning that it is going to be quite heavy to carry around during daily usage.

As for the display, you’ll be able to enjoy a reflective, high-resolution Clear View II LCD screen with 1,040k-dot 3.2 inch, which is capable of capturing stunning photos thanks to the included 18.1 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor. If you want to use the EOS-1D X to shoot video, you’ll be able to produce films in full 1080p video at either 24, 25 and 30fps – you can also record footage at 50 and 60fps in 720p as well which is pretty impressive.

If you’re interested in picking up Canon’s new flagship camera, head to Pocket-Lint for further details and some great sample images and video. How many of you own the EOS-1D? – Is it worth paying the extra money for the upgrade based on your current model?
