Canon EOS-1D X


The Canon EOS-1D X is a great choice for sports shooters and photojournalists, but is likely an overkill for most shooters.

Full-frame image sensor. 14fps burst capability. 61-point autofocus system. Excellent images at very high ISO settings. Built like a tank. Loads of controls. Dual CF card slots. 1080p video capture

Very expensive. Heavy. No built-in flash. No headphone jack. Uncompressed HDMI video output not possible. Switching between still and video live view mode is cumbersome

The Canon EOS-1D X ($6,799 direct) is a camera that just screams professional. It's physically imposing, with a big design that incorporates portrait and landscape shooting controls and loads of control buttons. The 18-megapixel full-frame image sensor...

Camera Review: Canon EOS-1D X


Canon unleashes a digital beast with this fast-shooting, full-frame, flagship DSLR.

Incredibly fast frame rate and performance speed; beautiful image quality even in extremely low light at extremely high ISOs; tough, sturdy build with an elegant overall design despite its beefy size; a boatload of features, most of which are extremely...

Expensive; no built-in Wi-Fi; no headphone jack; studio photographers might find the resolution wanting

The Canon 1D X may be expensive but make no mistake, you get a whole lotta camera for $6,800. If there’s anything I can say that’s critical of this superstar DSLR from Canon—aside from a few minor things like a missing headphone jack, etc.—it’s that...
