Canon shooters have been impatiently waiting for the EOS-1D X replacement, especially since the official announcement of the Nikon D5, and while the company still hasn’t released any official information, we’ve got the first photos and leaks specs of the soon-to-be-released monster of a camera.
The official announcement will likely take place next week, but until then – does it live up to your expectations?
Below are the known specs, as reported by Digicame-Info:
- 20.2MP CMOS sensor
- Improved dynamic range
- Dual Pixel CMOS AF
- 61-point AF system with an expanded range, 41 points are cross-type
- All of the distance measuring point can be selected, with lighting AF point red
- All 61 points available at f/8
- Improved AI AF accuracy and motion tracking Servo AF III +
- Dual DIGIC6 + processor
- New mirror drive system enables high-speed continuous shooting
- 4K video at 60fps with internal recording onto CFast 2.0 media
- Up to 16fps in Live View mode
- Smooth AF with 4K video thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF
- Built-in GPS
- 0 and HDMI terminals
- Dust and water resistant
- Optional Wi-Fi with WFT-E8 wireless transmitter
- Dimensions: 158 mm x 82.6 mm x 167.6mm
- Weight: 1340g
Sports and wildlife shooters will love having all 61 AF pointa available at f/8, as will the teleconverter sales, and the built-in GPS is a very welcome addition. It’s about time this feature gets added into every single DSLR.
Unfortunately wireless transmission will still cost owners a hefty sum of money, and Canon and Nikon’s flagship camera won’t use compatible memory cards, but hopefully the yet-to-be-disclosed ISO range will help people forget about that.
