Canon announces successor to EOS-1D/1Ds series
Canon has announced the new EOS-1D X professional camera, which replaces both the EOS-1D and EOS-1Ds series. The new flagship DSLR houses a full-frame 18.1MP CMOS sensor with a revamped high-precision AF system. The ISO range extends to 204,800. It also has two of Canon's new DIGIC-5+ processors. With a faster sensor and significantly enhanced processing power this means that the new 1D X has an impressive shooting speed of up to 14 frames per second. It also includes full HD video functionality.
Pricing and availability are not confirmed at present, but it seems likely that the new camera will be available in March 2012 for around $6800.00 U.S.
