Holy Mother of God the Canon 1D X Is Fast

By Sam Biddle on at

We already know the Canon 1D X is going to be the most epic DSLR ever—and fast as hell. But reading that is nothing compared to seeing the machine gun continuous shooting mode in action. Pew.

Shown here at a demo event, the £5,299 1D X's 14 FPS mode blasts full 18 megapixel JPEGs with hell's fury. That's 112,000,000 pixels per second. And if you drop it down to 12 FPS, you can crank shots in RAW. The engineering allowing the thing to operate that quickly—and accurately—is stunning. [PetaPixel]
