The EOS-1D X Mark III is currently under development and will go into production with a new CMOS sensor and image processing chip for higher image quality, faster continuous shooting speed. Specifically, the CMOS sensor and image processing chip being developed will achieve higher sensitivity for still images than its predecessors. Saving 10-bit HEIF still image files will be supported. In addition, the device will support 4K movie recording (60 frames per second).
In addition, the device will support AF and AE tracking whether using optical viewfinder (OVF) or live view, which helps to improve continuous shooting speed compared to previous models. With AF and AE tracking, the camera will reach 16 fps when using OVF, and 20 fps when using live view. In addition, when shooting in live view, the photographer can choose to use either mechanical or electronic shutter.
In live view mode, AF achieves focus of about 100% (vertical) and about 90% (horizontal). In addition, the number of AF points is up to 525 points when using the automatic selection mode. The number of photos taken is now also increased by 5 times compared to its predecessor model when shooting continuously in RAW format.
Notably, Canon revealed that the wireless data transmitter under development WFT-E9 (currently awaiting regulatory approval) when used with the EOS-1D X Mark III will achieve a data transfer speed more than 2 times. times the wireless data transmission speed in its predecessor model is WFT-E8 (released in April 2016). In addition, WFT-E9 can also be used with the EOS C500 Mark II (coming in December 2019);
On Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, the format of the memory card of the machine has also changed from CFast 2.0 to CFexpress, helping to write data faster. Another important detail is that the EOS-1D X Mark III will have two memory card slots.
