Canon announced the EOS-1D X Mark III on the sidelines of CES 2020, and now, Canon has launched its flagship DSLR camera in India. The camera will set you back Rs. 5,75,995 for just the body, which is the same price Canon India had tweeted around the time of the announcement.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III specifications
Canon’s flagship offering features a new 20.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with a new ‘high-detail’ low-pass filter. It also has a Digic X and Digic 8 image processors which are said to deliver up to 3.1x the image processing and 380x better Dual CMOS AF performance compared to its predecessor. This new combo has also allowed an improved ISO range of 100-1,02,400 (expandable to 50-8,19,200).
When using the optical viewfinder, you get 191 AF points, with 155 of them being cross-type. In live view, there’s Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system with 3,869 manually selectable AF points. The EOS-1D X Mark III can also do head, face and eye tracking using AI ‘deep learning’ algorithms. It can also shoot 16fps burst shots using the optical viewfinder, or 20fps burst photos with live view (either mechanical or electronic shutter). There’s also a pretty big buffer, capable of holding 1,000 images, including RAW and JPEGs.
