Exploring The Video Feature Improvements On The Canon EOS-1D X
Canon have listened to DSLR movie makers and implemented important new features
Yesterday Canon launched their new flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X. Please explore my previous post for a full rundown of the tech specs, this time I will be concentrating on the improvements that Canon have made for those that want to use the camera for movie making. The camera offers the first major improvement to Canon’s DSLR video functionality since the firmware update for the 5d Mark II that enabled 24p.
HDSLR video is now three years old and developments have really been few and far between. We know that Canon was caught by surprise when people took so readily to using the EOS-5D Mark II for making movies. It was never designed with that in mind but due to community pressure Canon eventually enabled some clunky audio controls and 24p through a firmware update. Subsequent cameras like the EOS-7D and the EOS-1D Mark IV had very minor improvements like the ability to shoot in 50/60p at a reduced resolution but there were no advancements. The reason for this is the development cycle of a new camera is many years, the 7D and 1D4 were already in development when the 5Dmk2 was released so there were only minor things that Canon had time to incorporate into those cameras. What they really needed was a totally new camera, one that could be built from the ground up with the knowledge that it would need to have some killer DSLR video functionality to push things forwards. Enter the EOS-1D X.
