Review Specification EOS 1D X

Review Specification EOS 1D X. The codec for the EOS-1DX is still H.264 in video mode (and raw for still mode), but the image sensor, auto focus system and DIGIC processors are all brand new, and other image improvement features have been added. Review Specification EOS 1D X.

The camera offers several "firsts" for Canon. "This is the first time since 1998 that Canon has introduced a new professional camera with a new auto focus system," said Westfall, who says that the system works for horizontal and vertical shooting and features an updated racking algorithm as well as a totally redesigned metering system. The image sensor is a new 18.1 megapixel full frame CMOS; that compares to the 16.1 megapixel sensor in the EOS-1DS Mark III. The new generation processors offer 12 fps capability in raw and JPEG. "There's greater noise reduction, it's helped us improve sensitivity of the ISO, and the speed of processing is substantially improved." When you shoot the 1D X at 12.8, it is incredibly smooth and high quality," he said. A totally redesigned mirror mechanism offers a quad action mirror stopper designer. The stoppers are spring-loaded and work in conjunction with mirror mechanisms for higher stability and performance. Mirror black-out time was 80 milliseconds on the older models; now it's 60 milliseconds, a 33 percent improvement."

Processing speed is 17 times faster than the Canon DIGI4 processor. With high ISO noise reduction set, the user can shoot at any setting with no loss of framing rate, and general improved image quality and functionality. "We had peripheral aberration correction before," noted Westfall.

The EOS-1D X combines speed with image quality, to create the next generation camera for professionals. Full frame 18 megapixel sensor with Dual “DIGIC 5+” processors sets the standard, and up to 12 frames per second shooting takes it beyond.
