Detailed Features

Take a look at a more detailed look into the Canon EOS-1D X

18.1 MP full frame CMOS sensor

A Canon 18.1 MP full frame CMOS sensor delivers stunning performance, producing exceptional low noise, high-resolution images even in the darkest conditions. The full frame sensor delivers optimum results from wide-angle lenses and gives you greater control over depth of field. Image resolution exceeds the quality demanded by leading photo agencies - making it ideal for extra large prints up to A2 size, even after cropping.

Super high speed shooting

Capture every second of the action with up to 12fps continuous shooting, increasing to an incredible 14fps in Super High speed shooting with continuous bursts of up to 180 large JPEG images (38 RAW).

Huge ISO range

An exceptionally wide ISO range of 100 to 51200 - expandable up to an incredible ISO 204800 - means shooting need never stop from the brightest conditions right through to near darkness.

61 point AF system

A high-precision 61 point AF system, featuring 41 high sensitivity cross type sensors, delivers fast, accurate focussing of fast moving subjects - whatever the lighting conditions. The centre 5 AF points are dual cross type for added precision.

Consistent, accurate metering

A 100,000 pixel RGB AE metering system with a dedicated DIGIC 4 processor measures not only brightness but also colour to ensure highly accurate exposure for natural results even in complex lighting situations.
