Canon Intros New Flagship Digital Camera
Canon has introduced its newest EOS digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera aimed at digital photography professionals — the EOS-1D Mark III. It’s scheduled to be released this spring, and while Canon did not specify an exact price, the company said the new camera would be priced similarly to the EOS-1D Mark II N Digital SLR, which debuted for about $4,000.
Billed as the “world’s fastest digital SLR camera,” the EOS-1D Mark III can record bursts of 110 large JPEGs or 30 raw files. It sports a 10.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, and features an ISO range of 100 to 3200.
A new “Live View” shooting mode lets users use the 3.0-inch LCD screen as a viewfinder.
