Almost everyone loves pictures, and due to the advancements of technology, the taking of pictures nowadays seemed like one of those things that are taken for granted. However, there are those who really take photography seriously – others, very very seriously. Are you one of them?
Cameras can come in many different shapes, sizes and brands. The more clever features and advanced a camera is, the more expensive it will typically be. Average people who love taking pictures can get a point-and-shoot camera for everyday purposes, while those who are seriously into the art of taking impressive and awe-inspiring photographs avail the DSLR ones. Take for example the most advanced DSLR that Canon has ever managed to create this time, the Canon 1D X.
Canon recently announced its new flagship DSLR model, the Canon 1D X, which has been designed specifically for professional news and sports photographers as well as deep-pocketed enthusiasts. The new unit replaces Canon’s current flagship models, the 1D Mark IV and the 1Ds Mark III.
The Canon 1D X sports a brand new full-frame 18-megapixel image sensor along with a dual Digic 5+ image processor. This image processor is practically three times faster than the Digic 5 and around seventeen times faster than the Digic 4. This technological improvement allows the Canon 1D X to continuously shoot at a blazing fast 12FPS RAW shots. The new unit also has an insane ISO range of 100 to 51,200 which can be expanded to 204,800. They say that even at ISO 25,600, shots are amazingly clean.
Aside from the dual Digic 5+, the new unit is also equipped with the Digic 4 image processor dedicated for use on metering alone. This gives it a substantial improvement on low light performance as compared to the 1D Mark IV. The new unit is also equipped with a new 61-point autofocus system along with an intelligent tracking autofocus.
Video recording has also improved. Although it can still record at the usual 1080p/24fps, 1080p/30fps, or 720p/60fps in h.264 format, the 1D X however can now continuously record nearly 30 minutes of video.
The release of the Canon 1D X is expected on March of 2012. This will give people who want this DSLR camera plenty of time to save on that steep $6800 price tag.
