Canon’s latest EOS-1D pro-level camera look virtually identical to every 1D model that came before it. But once you flip up the power slider, this new king of the jungle will roar like no other. Canon’s phenomenally powerful EOS-1D X really sounds like the DSLR to rule all others. It’s 18 megapixel full-frame sensor uses oversized pixels to battle noise and is supported by a pair of Digic 5+ imaging processors, which also help drive a 61-point high density reticular AF system, a top ISO setting of 204,000 (51,200 native), a 252-zone metering system, a 14 fps JPEG (or 12 fps RAW) burst mode and a built-in wired gigabit LAN connection, for remote shooting and image transfer.
The 1D X is being marketed to professional photographer, from commercial studio shooters to newspaper photo Ads.
We’re waiting a chance to go hands-on with the EOS-1D X, and you’ll have to wait until March 2012 before adding this $6,800 (BHD 2565) beauty to your gadget collection.
