Additional FeaturesUltra-fast shutter lagtime - only 36ms
Thanks to a non-contact charge and more resilient design, shutter lag with the EOS-1D X is reduced to 55ms (down even further to 36ms via custom function). A redesigned mirror that uses more effective material to absorb impact when moving up and down not only aids in speedy shot-to-shot times, but the reduced mirror vibration provides more stable shots at all times.
Built-in chromatic aberration correction and in-camera RAW processing
Chromatic aberration in Canon lenses can be corrected at the time of shooting with the EOS-1D X's Lens Aberration Correction feature and can be saved and registered to the particular lens. The EOS-1D X can even distinguish between different lenses of the same model by supporting registration of serial numbers specific to each lens.
Post processing, in-camera, is both quick and easy with the EOS-1D X. It offers in-camera RAW processing with image correction like white balance, brightness, picture style and more, as well as image resizing with JPEG images. Additionally, the EOS-1D X features Expanded Quick Control functions during playback like Image protect, image rotate, rating, resize, highlight alert, AF point and image jump, meaning a streamlined workflow can begin in the field.
System Status Display Function provides critical information including the number of total shutter cycles.
For optimal camera maintenance, The EOS-1D X's new System Status Display Function offers pertinent information about the camera's use and condition. In addition to displaying the camera's serial number and firmware version, the System Status Monitor also displays the total number of shutter release cycles (in thousands), a camera error log, which lists errors that may warrant service.
Multiple Exposures shooting
The EOS-1D X offers a number of multiple exposure options for creative photography, in-camera. It can take from two to nine exposures to create one multiple exposure image, with four distinct settings for exposure control: Additive (where, like with a traditional film-based multiple exposures) the total exposure amount adds up as the exposures are taken (thereby requiring manual exposure compensation for each frame); Average, where the exposure is controlled automatically; (Comparitive) Bright, a setting suited for uniformly dark scenes with distinct bright subjects; and (Comparitive) Dark, which is suitable for eliminating bright sections or reflections. Images can be checked on the LCD during shooting. An existing image can be chosen for the first exposure and the EOS-1D X offers a number of other settings for highly controlled multiple exposure photography of the highest caliber.

The "Go to" Camera
When in doubt, I always pull this camera out! It does the job really well! Executed everything I demand it do to! I went with this camera mainly for its low-light performance and the ability to focus anything my eye wants to focus. I'll make this review short. This camera made my life a whole lot easier! It's any professional photographer's dream. Heck, it made my dream come true! Thanks Canon!

Best camera out there
as both an indoor sports and portrait photographer, I've rented this camera numerous times, while saving up to buy it. Nothing matches this body for high ISO performance, almost noise free at 32000 with an awesome burst rate when needed ... black dogs running at top speed in low light are tack sharp and the detail is A M A Z I N G !!!
this camera is soooo worth the price, I'm already saving for a #2 :)

A Must for the Working Professional Photographer
First time I used the camera was at the Army/Navy game on December 14, 2013. The game was played late afternoon (3PM) and in the snow, and eventually sleet/rain mix. The camera performed like a champ!!
While playing with the camera at home, I shot a performance in a coffee house using available (candlelight) light at ISO 51,200 with minimal grain.
Although a little pricey, this camera is well worth the price. Highly recommended!!
