Providing class-leading versatility, the EOS-1D X is the ultimate camera for professional photographers shooting anywhere from the studio to the sports field, and is able to meet any creative challenge. The model blends a suite of first-class technologies that make it easier to capture images in outstanding quality, including a new 18.1MP fullframe CMOS sensor with an incredible 100-51200 ISO range (expandable to 204800) for shooting in extreme low-light conditions. A redesigned 61-point wide-area autofocus system offers advanced sensitivity and accuracy across the frame, while a newly-designed 100,000 pixel RGB metering sensor detects faces and colour to ensure correct exposure levels.

EOS-1D X is the first-ever camera to feature dual “DIGIC 5+” processors, which are designed to handle huge levels of image data while simultaneously reducing image noise. Combined with the sensor’s 16-channel read-out, the processors enable fullresolution continuous shooting up to 12fps while a super high-speed mode extends the shooting speed to 14fps[1].

An extensive range of manual settings lets users control exposure, focus and frame rate2, while sound levels can also be displayed and adjusted on the Clear View II 8.11cm (3.2”) LCD screen, ensuring complete control over every aspect of a shoot.
