Key Highlights
  • 20.1 MP Full-frame CMOS sensor
  • 100-102,400 ISO Range
  • EF Mount


The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III offers the highest level of performance an EOS DSLR has ever possessed, boasting a powerful new 20.1 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor and cutting-edge DIGIC X image processor, for truly outstanding stills and video capture. The user can track subjects with incredible focus using the new 191-point AF system, including innovative new Head Detection AF technology (EOS iTR*1 AF X), along with faster continuous shooting speeds of up to 16 fps with the viewfinder (up to 20 fps in Live View mode).

The EOS-1D X Mark III is Canon's most powerful DSLR for video capture to date, equipped with 4K 60p recording capability, plus the option to shoot 5.5K RAW or 10-bit 4:2:2 video with Canon Log, recorded to a CFexpress card in either (or both) of its dual card slots. With integrated Wi-Fi*** for the first time ever in an EOS-1D series, this revolutionary, dust and weather resistant camera offers the connectivity to share photos and videos with clients, colleagues, or family from virtually anywhere.

20.1 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor

Featuring a Canon-developed 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with ~20.1 effective megapixels, the EOS-1D X Mark III camera is engineered with a new imaging system designed to capture sharp and detailed images, even in low-light scenarios. This results in noise reduction in dark portions of the image even at high ISO speeds, and increased sensitivity that contributes to the EOS-1D X Mark III's high-speed image capture rate, accelerating frame-to-frame performance. The new sensor also includes Dual Pixel CMOS AF for high-speed, precise autofocus during Live View still and movie recording.

Low Pass Filter & New DIGIC X Image Processor

The EOS-1D X Mark III features a newly developed, four-layer low pass filter that provides 16-point separation. This not only helps to suppress moiré and color distortion, but also improves resolution.

The powerful new DIGIC X Image Processor replaces the two DIGIC 6+ processors from the previous EOS-1D X Mark II camera. The DIGIC X Image Processor of the Mark III helps to enhance fine detail from the added low-pass filter.

ISO Range of 100-102,400 (Expandable to 50-819,200)

Delivering high standard and expanded ISOs, and many options to enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations, the EOS-1D X Mark III can shoot at expanded sensitivities down to ISO 50 (L) and up to 204,800 (H1), 409,600 (H2) and even 819,2000 (H3), for stills. Beyond the obvious advantages of its wide ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark III features automatic ISO settings, found on the dedicated ISO menu. Minimum and maximum ISO settings can be specified, as can a user-defined range, plus full auto and manual.

New 191-Point AF System Capable of Tracking a Subject's Head & Face using Deep Learning Technology

The EOS-1D X Mark III camera is equipped with a collection of 191 AF points, which allows the photographer to manually select every point, as well as select a variety of AF Zone Area selections. Covering virtually the same amount of the picture area as the previous 61-point system AF array. The EOS-1D X Mark III camera also features a new technology called EOS iTR*1 AF X which helps to track a subject with excellent accuracy, including impressive Face Detection AF and new Head Detection AF. It even offers the added benefit of Eye Detection AF in Live View mode or while shooting video.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

The EOS-1D X Mark III camera's fast and intelligent Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features 3,869 manually selectable AF positions**, helping to ensure fast, accurate and consistent AF all throughout approximately 90% x 100% of the image plane. Able to detect shifts in movement at the pixel level, Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables continuous automatic AF and AF tracking that enhances overall camera operation for sharp still images and smooth, accurate focus transitions in movies. This makes it particularly ideal for sports photography.


*1 Intelligent Tracking and Recognition.

* For still images.

** Available AF positions may decrease when shooting with AF cropping or in movie mode, or depending on camera settings or lens attached.
