Used Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Digital SLR Body
Original RRP £6,999 | You Save £3,066.85
The EOS-1D X Mark III is Canon's flagship pro DSLR and is their most advanced camera to date. This weather-sealed workhorse features Canon's new 20.1-megapixel sensor and coupled with the DIGIC X processor, it gives incedible shooting speed - up to 20 fps (full frame) in live view and 16 fps when using the optical viewfinder. The ISO range has been increased on the 1DX Mark III to ISO 100-102400 - expandable to ISO 50-819200 so it's superb in low light. Canon have also improved the autofocus by using a dedicated CMOS imaging sensor, improving accuracy and precision and allowing many more focusing points in the viewfinder. Filmmakers can use the Canon 1D X Mark III to shoot full-frame 4k video at 60 frames per second, recording footage internally using the 10-bit HEVC/H.265 codec with Canon Log or 12-bit Raw, for expanded dynamic range and easy colour grading during editing. It can also record 5.5K Raw video footage internally to its CFexpress cards, giving filmmakers unprecedented image quality.
Bespoke 20.1-megapixel CMOS sensor
A custom-designed full-frame sensor features 20.1-megapixel resolution – the ideal balance between image quality, performance and speed of workflow. delivers increased dynamic range, more advanced noise-reduction at all ISO sensitivities and faster read out of imaging data. Native ISO sensitivity now ranges from ISO 100 to ISO 812,900 and is expandable to an astonishing ISO 50-812,600, setting new standards in low-light performance. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III also features a Gaussian low pass filter (LPF), which reduces moiré more effectively than standard LPF designs while also delivering a sharper, more detailed image.
DIGIC X Processor
At the heart of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is a single DIGIC X image processor – a device that’s much more power than previous DIGIC processors and which enables the camera to operate at incredible speed. As well as superb image quality, even in the most demanding conditions, the DIGIC X processor allows for up to 20fps continuous shooting with full autofocus, autoexposure and in-camera DLO processing.
Continuous shooting at up to 20fps
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III can capture up to 20 full-frame 20.1 megapixel images every second when shooting in live view mode, using either its mechanical shutter to capture motion faithfully or an electronic shutter for completely silent shooting.
When using the camera’s optical viewfinder the continuous shooting rate is 16fps – an extraordinary achievement for a DSLR camera, and one made possible by Canon’s expertise in mechanical engineering. direct drive motors are used to drive the reflex mirror up and down, returning it to its resting position swiftly, accurately and the minimal ‘mirror bounce. The shutter is rated for 500,000 shots, offering new levels of speed and reliability.
Dual CFexpress slots
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III uses CFexpress – the next generation of storage from the Compact Flash Association. These cards have significantly higher write speeds, allowing 20fps shooting in RAW and JPEG mode for an incredible 1000 shots without buffering, plus internal 5.5K Raw video recording.
Superb in low-light

Native ISO sensitivity now ranges from ISO 100 to ISO 812,900 and is expandable to an astonishing ISO 50-812,600, setting new standards in low-light performance.
Dedicated AF sensor
When you compose, focus and shoot through the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III’s optical viewfinder, you’re experiencing a revolution in AF design. A dedicated CMOS imaging sensor is used exclusively for autofocus, improving accuracy and precision and allowing many more focusing points in the viewfinder. The AF processing it taken care of by a dedicated DIGIC 8 processor who’s sole job is to look after the AF when using the optical viewfinder.

The AF processing it taken care of by a dedicated DIGIC 8 processor who’s sole job is to look after the AF when using the optical viewfinder. The behaviour of the camera’s continuous focusing system can be adjusted according to the kind of action you’re photographing. Just choose from four case settings or use the new Auto case setting that will select the most appropriate behaviour for the task in hand.
4K video recording and 5.5K Raw
Capture oversampled DCI 4K/60p video internally using the full width of the sensor, so your lenses see the same as when you’re shooting stills. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III can shoot in 17:9 DCI or 16:9 UHD aspect ratios and record the results using either the H.264 codec or as 10-bit H.265 codec when using Canon Log. Footage captured in this way is intentionally low in contrast, so it’s easier to colour grade in post-production.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III can also record 5.5K Raw video footage internally to its CFexpress cards, giving filmmakers unprecedented image quality. Expect more natural colour gradation and more dynamic range, letting you see detail in highlights and shadows that are 12 stops apart.
Image stabilisation for movies
Movie Digital IS provides highly effective five-axis image stabilisation when you’re filming handheld – smoothing out shake caused by camera movement. An enhanced mode detects and corrects for the kind of motion encountered when walking with the camera – when tracking a moving subject.
