Canon EOS-1D X


Well the camera of the YEAR is finally here! (well the specs…)

The specs on this beautiful piece of machinery stand out over the Nikon D3s and the previous Canon EOS 1Ds MKIII & Canon EOS 1D MKIV by a long shot! Having used all the above cameras I can’t wait to test this full frame sensor on a wedding; find the lowest lit landscape to workout the ridiculous noise capability or even photograph the wildest beast in Africa at 14 frames per second.  Photography never looked and sounded so good.

Boasting a massive 18.1MP full frame Complimentary Metal Oxide Sensor; ISO range 100 – 204800 (expanded); Dual Digic 5+ image processors for amazing processing speeds and enhanced noise reduction; 14 bit image processing and to top it off the camera has been reworked to house 2x CF card slots instead of the previous CF and SD slots.

On the video side the camera has gone to the next level incorporating timecode – which is essential for broadcast productions so that multiple cameras can be synchronised perfectly. Something I will be getting into in the future.

I can’t wait to get my hands on one. This camera is a MUST for my growing kit.
