The pictures are 5184×3456 in size and it seems they haven’t been post processed in any way, although I can not claim that to be a fact. If this is their out of the camera quality then I’m satisfied but also have to have in mind that these examples have been shot with prime lenses such as EF 135 f/2.0 (famous for it’s sharpness) and the extra expensive EF 400mm f/2.8 and EF 600mm f/4.0. Don’t know why they took a picture of the girl with 135mm and aperture set to f/8.0 – It would be sharp as hell even on a EF 18-55 that way! We want those examples shot wide open. Also we would love to see those 12 fps fired at that athlete running (second picture) and check the sharpness afterwards ! Hope to see it in action soon.


Reminder on the EOS 1D-x specs:

18 megapixels full-frame CMOS chip
Continues shoots: 12 frames per second (14 fps with manual focus)
61 point AF sensor
Signal to noise ratio should be better than 1D Mk IV, 5D Mark II and the 1DS III, with its pixel size of 6.95 microns
Twin CF card slot
It records Full HD at 1920 x 1080 in selectable frame rates of 24p, 25p, or 30p
Conectivity: Ethernet 1000 Base-T network port, file transmitter (should be available in March 2012 for $600). Availability for the GP-E1 GPS receiver is expected in April 2012 with an estimated retail price of $300.

The EOS-1D X features three DIGIC processors, including Dual DIGIC 5+ image processors, 17x times more processing speed than DIGIC 4, and a dedicated DIGIC 4 for metering and AF control.

The Canon EOS 1D X features incredible new EOS iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition) AF options ideal for wedding and event photography as well as sports and photo-journalism. It uses phase detection AF information, while a new second option uses Face Detection technology to track recognized faces in addition to color information.
