Introduction

The Canon EOS-1D X is the new flagship of the company's professional line of DSLRs, sporting improved shooting speed, beefed-up autofocus capabilities, and a full-frame CMOS image sensor. Like previous 1D-series models, the 1D X combines landscape and portrait grips, durable design, and all the manual control that a professional would need. The 1D X also integrates the professional-quality video features needed in an industry that's increasingly focused on multimedia capability, while improving the ergonomics of the previous 1D-series cameras for sports, wildlife, and news photographers. The Canon 1D X was announced last fall, but is just now entering the market at a body-only price of $6800.
