Phenomenally powerful Canon EOS-1D X specs, price shock

Whenever Canon update their EOS-1D range of SLR cameras you will be forgiven for thinking that you are looking at a clone of the previous model. However, it’s not until you get on the inside that things change, as the new X model is phenomenally powerful – much like the iPhone 4 and 4S in that respect. The specs are astounding, but the high price will shock you.

The Canon EOS-1D X is an 18-megapixel shooter with a full-frame sensor, the clever use of oversized pixels means that you get an image that has much less noise than ever before. To further enhance image quality there are two Digic 5+ imaging processors. There are other factors involved when taking a good photo, and the EOS-1D X has the lot.

Some of the main specs include, 252-zone metering system, ISO setting of 204,000, 61-point high-density reticular AF system, 3.2-inch 1,040,000-dot LCD, 1080P video capture and so much more. Some of you may wonder why Canon has named their latest and greatest X; well this is now their tenth-generation professional SLR.

The price for this camera will be $6,800 when it goes on sale in March 2012, so still a long time to go then. Just try not to spend too much over Christmas, as it could affect your decision making when buying this expensive shooter. For full details and a complete list of specs and features read the Canon press release.
