Announced in 2011, the Canon EOS-1D X is Canon’s top of the line DSLR camera for professional applications. The first thing you’ll notice about the EOS-1D is it’s rugged design and build, featuring a magnesium alloy body covered in stylized rubber for a comfortable grip. Photographers will be pleased to know that despite the tough build, the camera body (with battery) still only weighs in a bit over 3.4 lbs. The EOS 1D’s body is also weather sealed, allowing photographers to shoot outdoors in the most threatening of weather conditions without worry.
The Canon EOS-1D isn’t all about a sturdy build and good looks; the camera delivers impressive specs under the hood that are sure to please even the most demanding photographer. The 1D features a 18.1 Megapixel (effective) CMOS sensor (36 x 24mm), 61 zone auto focusing, and the ability to shoot at up to 14FPS in burst mode with the mirror locked. The 1D is able to shoot at double the speed of the Canon 5D Mark III (6FPS Burst). If that wasn’t enough, the EOS-1D features HD video capabilities, recording 1920×1080 @ 24, 25 and 30 FPS and 1280×720 @ 24, 25, 30 and 60 FPS.
