Today Canon USA has announced the launch of the newest model in the 1D line-up, the Canon EOS-1D X.

The Canon EOS-1D X is built around a new full-frame CMOS sensor with 18M pixels, capable of shooting up to 14 frames per second (12 with AF). Although the new addition looks like the previous 1D cameras it has been thoroughly rebuild, e.g. it includes much more professional video capabilities than any other Canon DSLR model before. The goal of Canon’s new DSLR camera is to replace the sports-focused 1D cameras, as well as the studio-focused 1DS cameras.

The launch of the Canon EOS-1D X is planned for March 2012 and will have an RRP of $ 6,800 in a body-only configuration.
