The EOS-1D X is the new flagship camera in the Canon DSLR range, taking the best of the EOS-1D and EOS-1Ds cameras and melding them into a single unit that gives both high resolution and high speed shooting. No longer do you need to choose between the two when both are available in one body.

By taking the EOS-1D Mark IV and making radical changes to every aspect of the camera's build and design, the EOS-1D X stands head and shoulders above everything that has gone before to offer high resolution, high frame rate and high ISO shooting with a full-frame CMOS sensor, and industry leading HD Movie shooting in one camera. It is 'Performance redefined'.
