A great deal is still unknown about the 1D X Mark III, though Canon was kind enough to share a few key details. There is a next-generation image sensor and processor in the camera, and the 1D X Mark III can now reach continuous shooting speeds of up to 16 fps with the optical viewfinder or 20 fps in live view.

Glad to see canon catching up to the Nikon D5, illuminated buttons are a beautiful thing, I use them daily at dimly lit events, however, canon, how bout using the XQD cards, once i started using them, I’ve never looked back. Good luck and who knows, maybe I’ll shoot a little canon this time....

Hi Tracy,

CFexpress is actually going to replace XQD going forward and the common Type B version available in many existing cameras uses the same form factor as XQD. It is a great, forward-thinking format.
