Video shooting

When it comes to shooting video, the 1D X Mark III shoots DCI 4K 60p with 10-bit 4:2:2 color. This along with the Canon Log Gamma should give users more flexibility in post-production. Plus, unlike with other Canon cameras, you can record in 4K using the full sensor area.

The camera also supports 5.5K raw video recording as well as Full HD recording at up to 120 fps. Finally, there are a number of shoot assist tools to help you perfect your shot.
