Canon have revealed the successor to their superb 1D Mark IV DSLR, launching the Canon EOS-1D X today.

A spec-heavy beast of a camera, it features a full-frame 18.1MP CMOS sensor with 12fps and 14fps high speed modes, 100-51200 ISO levels and a precision 61 point AF system with 41 high sensitivity cross type sensors.

Dual DIGIC 5 processors power the show, with the camera offering Full HD 1080p recording, and full control over settings like exposure, frame rates, audio and compression.

A dedicated DIGIC 4 processor is part of the 100,000 pixel RGB AE metering system, promising natural snapping results, while a high-res,”superbly durable”, 1,040k-dot 3.2-inch Clear View II LCD sits on the back for previewing your work.

Due out in March, it’s set to sell for around the $6,800 mark.
