Continuous shooting at up to 20fps
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III can capture up to 20 full-frame 20.1 megapixel images every second when shooting in live view mode, using either its mechanical shutter to capture motion faithfully or an electronic shutter for completely silent shooting.
When using the camera’s optical viewfinder the continuous shooting rate is 16fps – an extraordinary achievement for a DSLR camera, and one made possible by Canon’s expertise in mechanical engineering. direct drive motors are used to drive the reflex mirror up and down, returning it to its resting position swiftly, accurately and the minimal ‘mirror bounce’.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III’s shutter is rated for 500,000 shots, offering new levels of speed and reliability that give you confidence when the pressure is on.
Dual CFexpress slots
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III uses CFexpress – the next generation of storage from the Compact Flash Association. These cards have significantly higher write speeds, allowing 20fps shooting in RAW and JPEG mode for an incredible 1000 shots without buffering, plus internal 5.5K Raw video recording.
Following feedback from professional photographers, it’s now possible to save still photos to one card and video footage to another card.
