Canon EOS-1D X Camera Expected Only After the Summer

April 13, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Shutterbugs anticipating the next rig from Canon may have to wait a bit more. The camera maker has informed that its prestigious model EOS-1D X camera and EF 24-70mm lens are stuck up in the pipeline.

Yes, this will mean that it will subsequently extend the launch date of the premium camera further. Canon had previously informed that the 1D X would be reaching stores last March.

Now, with the camera and lens jammed in production, we need to expect the device only after the summer. In the interim, Canon has preferred to stay tight-lipped on the real reasons for the holdup.

The EOS-1D X will be a flagship model from the camera maker, and will bring in nominal improvements in the image processing sector. The 1D X is an 18-megapixel camera featuring a 100,000-pixel metering system, 12fps continuous shooting in RAW format, a 61-point auto-focus system, and light sensitivity up to ISO 51,200.

The Canon device boasts a 17-fold performance improvement compared to the 1D Mark IV. It is said to be built for accommodating 400,000 shutter clicks at the least.

The camera will also pack a rugged housing along with it. The sensor of the 1D X is kept clean by employing two separate vibrating mechanisms. It also features a gigabit Ethernet port for high-speed tethering.

We can likely expect the EOS-1D X on our hands by mid-June, and the EF 24-70mm lens some time next month. Till then, keep waiting for this awesome device .
