Canon EOS-1D X

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.

Canon announces the EOS 60D

Canon has unveiled the EOS 60D mid-level DSLR, replacing the EOS 50D.

However, following the launch of the EOS 7D, the 60D has been repositioned in the market, so isn’t a simple upgrade to its predecessor. Instead the 60D is a smaller camera featuring an articulated screen and plastic body shell and utilizing SD memory cards.

It combines the 18MP CMOS sensor and 1040k dot 3.0″ LCD from the EOS 550D (Rebel T2i) with the AF system from the 50D.
