Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Hands-on Review: The Best DSLR for Video

The Canon 1D X Mark III is the best DSLR that Canon has ever made and leads by miles over the others in the market and it even includes full-frame 4k! It’s not perfect but, it’s quite close. With the release of this camera, Canon tops just about every spec offered outside of a cinema camera.

If its price tag doesn’t scare you away, The Canon 1D X Mark III is a wonderful camera. It’s got amazing AF when shooting stills or video. It captures up to 12-bit RAW internally to new CFexpress media but also gives 10 and 8-bit capture capability, even recorded alongside RAW as a proxy. It has a near endless continuous RAW still shooting, but its ability to create lots of data quickly can not be underestimated. Yeah its $6500, but it’s the most capable DSLR in history, up to this point. Canon came out swinging with this heavy hitter, it’s nice to see Canon leading in innovation giving all the other brands a lot to live up to. It’s a fantastic sport and wildlife stills camera and its video features are to be revered by all others. We liked the Canon 1D X Mark III a lot, it’s a great camera.
