Canon EOS-1D X marks the full-frame, 1080p and Ethernet spot

X marks the spot for the latest monster dSLR from Canon. The Canon EOS-1D X is an 18-megapixel, full-frame professional camera complete with high-definition video and an Internet connection.

The 1D X boasts not one but two dual DIGIC 5 processors for super-fast processing. It shoots 14 JPEGs per second or 12 raw shots in a second. A multiple exposure mode fires up to nine times and combines the shots into one high dynamic range image with loads of detail and colour.

The camera packs a 61-point AF system. ISO speed goes up to 51,200, or you can boost it to ISO 204,800 in seriously dark conditions. There’s a redesigned shutter and mirror mechanism, and a 3.2-inch LCD screen at the back. The body features a built-in grip to shoot in landscape or portrait mode with a second shutter button when you turn it sideways.
