Canon EOS-1D X


Updated with video: Canon's flagship DSLR came late but is worth the wait.

Performs exceptionally well in low-light situations ; Capable of shooting breathtaking bursts at high speed ; Feels robust and up to the task of any photo challenge

AF drive mode isn’t displayed through the viewfinder when it’s being changed ; Star rating isn’t as intuitive as that on the EOS-5D Mark III ; No identifiable movie-record button on the body

At around £5,300 for the body-only the Canon EOS-1D X doesn’t come cheap, but if you’re a professional photographer who makes a living from photography then the 1D X is one of the best tools that money can buy. Put simply the Canon EOS-1D X is...

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II review


A top-spec camera that's got the need for (shutter) speed

Outstanding image quality ; 4K all the way ; Bulging with buttons

Baby battery ; Where's the Wi-Fi? ; Temperamental touchscreen

A worthy replacement for the 1DX, with stunning image quality and superb handling.

Canon EOS 1D X


Various put-backs and delays had plagued the Canon EOS 1D X's path to the shelves, but Canon was in no rush to put out an inferior product. After all this is touted to be the world's best full-frame professional DSLR camera, as its near-£5000 body-only...

Super fast burst rate, incredible battery life, hard as nails build quality, detailed AF system, great image quality and class-leading dynamic range

No clean HDMI out or headphone jack limit professional movie capture, it's heavy and expensive, should have been firmware 1.1.1 from the get go, live view sees no further advances

Good things come to those who wait. And wait we did. Three years after the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III, and more than a year after its initial reveal, the 1D X has lived up to its hype. It's a stormer of a DSLR that stomps all over its predecessors.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II review: The definition of excess


A barnstormer of a camera that will keep up with the most demanding subject. The price will make you wonder if you really need it, though

4K 60fps video recording ; Excellent build quality ; Superb battery life

Very expensive ; A little on the heavy side

You pay every penny for all of that, and at £5,000 the EOS-1D X Mark II will be beyond the reach of many professionals and all but the best-heeled amateur. But pay the asking price and you’ll be rewarded with a camera that can keep up with virtually...

Canon EOS 1D X review [updated]


VerdictCameras at this level have extremely high standards to live up to and the 1D X certainly meets them and in places even exceeds them. The new sensor is extremely impressive in terms of detail but more so in terms of its noise performance in low...

Canon EOS-1D X


The Canon EOS-1D X is a great choice for sports shooters and photojournalists, but is likely an overkill for most shooters.

The 1D X is one of the fastest-shooting cameras on the block. It starts and grabs a photo in about 0.5-second, manages a shutter lag that is virtually unnoticeable (0.05-second), and can rattle off shots at speeds of up to 13.9 frames per second in a...
