Canon Introduces Groundbreaking Flagship Model – Canon EOS 1D X

As one of CPS  (Canon Professional Services) members, I am honoured for the invitation on the event today to witness the momentous occasion  for Canon groundbreaking flagship model – Canon EOS 1D X global launching including other part of the world like Japan at KL Convention Center.

This model is expected to be launching next year March/April according to Canon Malaysia Marketing and pricing will only be available in Feb itself. Initial estimation is around RM20k per unit.

So, what this baby can do?

Lets look at some of the specs highlighted:

  • 12fps (14fps if pre-lock)
    • this is consider the fastest so far.. great for sport I guess and for wedding? hmmmm….
  •  iso51200 (H1-102400, H2-204800)
    • this is a super WOW to us especially for low light condition ! we took an image with iso51200 and zoom in, no noise at all! great news for f4.0 lens now..
  • 18.1MB
  • full frame
  • dual digit v processor
  • 400k shutter cycles 
    • yeah…. like what Mr. Teoh said, worry free on shutter clicking
  • 61 points AF with 41 cross type points
    • finally, this feature will ensure accurate focusing and tracking !! a huge improvement compare to 5D Mark2
  • Smart focusing with colour and face tracking
  • customize buttons for user assignment
    • great feature which we could assign what function on those multiple function button and everything can be control just with one hand.. (not sure about my hand … hahhaa)
    • on the other hand, your friends or assistance might not be able to handle your camera since buttons are custom made to suit individual favour.
  • multiple exposure
    • a feature that Nikon users always proud of … now it is in Canon !
  • in-camera raw process
  • weight – 1.35kgs 
    • compare to 5D Mark2 810g, 1D Mark IV 1.2kgs


It is really an interesting model and according to Canon Marketing Malaysia, this will be a different product line compare t o Canon EOS 1Ds Mark3 and 1D Mark 4… will this replace Canon 5D Mark2? will there be another cheaper version on 5D Mark3 coming soon? we shall wait and see.. however, during the launch, the feedback was so good that even some guests raised their hand and asking for pre-booking on this super model!


Jack is the first one from all the guest get hold of 1D X !

Wanna hear the super high speed shutter clicking sound?

    About Edwin Tan


    Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
