I Worked with the Canon 1D X Mark III for Two Days

Last month, as a Canon Ambassador, I had the opportunity to try out the new DSLR flagship camera, the Canon 1D X Mark III, for 2 days. This is neither a technical review nor a test report. The video above will show you how I worked with the new camera.

I’m not going to cover the technical specifications in any detail, as they are now officially available. In addition, I only tested the photography functionality as I simply didn’t have enough time to check out the camera’s filming abilities.

Here are some sample photos:

My conclusion, after 2 days: the Canon 1Dx Mark III is insanely fast. It’s insanely fast when it comes to frames per second, and it’s insanely fast when it comes to autofocus speed. For animal and sports photography and for photojournalism, this is the best Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera that Canon has ever built.

I have been working with the mirrorless EOS R camera for more than a year, and I personally feel that the 1D X Mark III is not only the best DSLR but also the best “mirrorless camera,” except it also has a mirror when you want it!
