Canon’s next flagship DSLR has already been revealed.  Although the camera is an update of the current EOS 1D Mark IV, the new camera will be called EOS-1D X.  It is a full-frame 18-megapixel camera with three processors and greatly expanded low-light sensitivity.  It will have a total of 61 autofocus points and a dedicated DIGIC IV processor for AF/AE control.  Of the 61 AF points, 41 are cross-types, including five dual-cross points at f/2.8. The 1D X will have a 14 frame per second continuous shooting mode and 51,200 native ISO that is expandable to 204,800.

It also has something good in terms of video capture with its dual DIGIC V processors that captures 1080p30 and 720p60 video and a Gigabit Ethernet connection for streaming live footage.  For data storage, the Canon 1D X will have two CompactFlash card slots.

The Canon EOS 1D X will also feature a new RGB metering system, facial recognition and tracking.  Shutter lag has been reduced to a mere 0.036 seconds.

    i already have the lense…. been waiting for the camera like this one

  2. This is going to be such a good camera. The low light shooting which makes people buy expensive 2.8 lenses now will be able to get by in the same situation with a f 4.5. The savings alone in the lens will help out. You will be able to get good depth of field and descent shutter speeds in low light.
