Canon EOS-1D X Mark III camera possible specs and announcement date

As reported earlier, the successor to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II camera, the Mark III is expected to be announced by Q1, 2020 with a possible development announcement before the end of 2019.

I have been an EOS-1 user since the line was introduced in 1989. The latest and possibly last EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR body may have the following specs :

  • All new mid to high 20MP sensor
  • Powered by dual DIGIC 8+ or DIGIC 9 processors
  • Dual card slots - 1 CFast and 1 CFExpress or 2 CFExpress
  • Shoots 6K video without cropping
  • IBIS in test prototype and maybe in production model
  • 3.2 million-dot touch screen
  • GPS and possible built-in WiFi
  • Burst rate 14+ fps in AF.  Between 20 - 30 fps in LiveView
  • Improved silent shooting mode
  • New battery but backward compatible with older models

Frankly, I find the present burst rate of the Mark II model more than adequate. The sensor and LCD screen can use a bump up in megapixels. The IBIS and WiFi features, if included, serve little purpose for me but may be useful for some landscape photography and photo journalism assignments. I am excited about the new sensor IQ improvement and video enhancements.

Keep checking back for the latest development and information. I am very interested in getting this body.
