Canon officially announces its latest EOS-1D pro-level camera, which is named by simply adding X. According to Canon, the “X” marks its tenth-generation professional SLR. It is also a “cross”-over model, combining the capabilities of both the 1D Mark IV and 1Ds Mark III. Finally, the names sounds “Xtreme.”

The Canon EOS-1D X comes with an 18-megapixel full-frame sensor, which uses oversized pixels to minimize noise, and a pair of Digic 5+ imaging processor that helps drive a 61-point high-density reticular AF system. Its control layout has a redesigned system menu, which can be accessed through the 3.2-inch, 1,040,000-dot LCD.

Other features include a top ISO setting of 204,000 (51,200 native), a 252-zone metering system, a 14 frames per second burst mode, an intelligent optical viewfinder, an on-demand grid, AF status indicator, dual-axis electronic level, and built-in wired gigabit LAN connection for remote shooting and image transfer.

It also shoots video at 1080p resolution, with your choice of 24, 25, or 30 frames per second; or at 720p at 50 or 60 fps. Although it does not have a 4GB clip limit, individual video files are limited to 29:59. It has to do with avoiding European tax rates that affect HD cameras that can capture single HD video longer than 30 minutes.

The Canon EOS-1D X is ideal for professional photographers from photojournalists to commercial studio imagers. It will be released on March 2012 with a suggested retail price of $6,800.
