This is big. Today, Canon Australia launches the ultimate professional camera, the EOS-1D X Mark III, offering professional photographers, videographers and content creators limitless possibilities at blistering speeds. Boasting dramatically improved AF tracking performance, premium still and video image quality and communication capabilities, this camera represents the pinnacle of Canon’s EOS series.
The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is ideal for an increasingly fast-paced industry, giving professionals confidence that they will get the shot every time, while delivering faster speeds than ever before.
The flagship DSLR has been developed using feedback from the worldwide community of EOS-1D X and Mark II photographers. The EOS-1D X Mark III enables incredible shooting speeds of up to 20fps with AF tracking in complete silence and features improved high ISO performance.
SUNSTUDIOS' First look at the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III
To ensure uncompromised performance in the harshest environments, the EOS-1D X Mark III comprises Canon’s EOS-1 Series trademark build-quality, reliability, and weather sealing features and will also be backed by Canon Australia’s 5-year manufacturer warranty.
A new era in autofocus speed and accuracy
The EOS-1D X Mark III features a brand-new AF sensor with 28 times more resolution than its predecessor, using advanced AF algorithms with deep learning technology for unparalleled focus tracking in any situation. In Live View and video there’s the added advantage of Dual Pixel CMOS AF across approximately 90x100 percent of the sensor with 525 AF areas. With AF over a wider EV range, focusing has never been more accurate and versatile.
Outstanding stills and video
With a new Canon CMOS sensor and powerful new DIG!C X processing, image quality even at high ISO is taken to even greater levels of quality. This is along with 4K video at 60p plus the options of capturing RAW video or 10-bit video with Canon Log, both recorded internally to CFexpress cards. A new bright viewfinder ensures you are connected to your subject in real time with zero lag.
1. 20.1MP Full Frame CMOS sensor with 16-point lowpass filter and DiG!C X processor for superior image quality and fast processing speeds.
2. 16 frames per second optical viewfinder shooting with AF and AE tracking, and 20 frames per second live view shooting with AF and AE tracking and near silent shutter.

In Part One, Motion Imaging Specialist Neale Head navigated the complex terrain of frame rates and resolution for photographers hoping to make the leap into videography. Undeterred, he continues on to explain colour depth and sub-sampling.
When Chris Ireland was invited to direct a documentary on the process of making Tom Carroll’s first exhibition, it was unknown territory for both the legendary surfer who had never photographed for gallery walls, and the director who had never met the subject or used the camera he’d be shooting on.
