Ever since, the camera and its successor model have delivered high image quality and high-speed continuous shooting along with functionality supported by the highest level of Canon technology, earning renown from professionals on the front lines of such fields as journalism, sports, commercial and nature photography. Over the past several decades, Canon has also continued to provide behind-the-scenes support for journalists at sporting events. With the aim of “capturing and preserving decisive, thrilling moments from top-class athletes and intense competition,” Canon has operated camera support centers at a wide range of sporting events in order to ensure photographers are always ready to capture the action. What’s more, experience and feedback from these professionals help influence development of future products, enabling the company to continue providing ever more reliable camera technology. With the introduction of the EOS-1, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and top-class functionality, and the implementation of these features through the product lineup—even down to entry-level models—Canon serves the needs of customers at various levels. Going forward, the company will continue to advance its core optical technologies and push the limits of competitive and reliable camera and lens manufacturing in order to support the further evolution of photographic and visual expression. Canon is planning to implement the following features in the currently under-development EOS-1D X Mark III. 1. Newly developed CMOS sensor and image processor for higher image quality and faster continuous shooting speeds I. Canon’s in-development proprietary CMOS sensor and image processor will realize higher sensitivity for stills shooting compared with predecessor models. Saving of still-image 10-bit HEIF 1 files will be supported. In addition, the camera will support internal recording of 4K / 60p / YCbCr 4:2:2 / 10-bit / Canon Log and RAW format video. II. AF and AE tracking supported whether shooting with the optical viewfinder (OVF) or live view and improved continuous shooting speeds compared with previous models. With AF and AE tracking, the camera realizes up to approximately 16 frames-per-second shooting using the OVF and 20 with live view. What’s more, when shooting with live view, photographers can choose to shoot using either the mechanical shutter or electronic shutter. III. 5x increase in maximum number of images captured when performing continuous RAW shooting compared with predecessor models. 2. More precise autofocus thanks to newly developed AF sensor and AF algorithm I. A new AF sensor will be employed, which increased the number of effective pixels in the center pixel area by approximately 28x compared with predecessor models. High-resolution signals obtained by the AF sensor will enable high focus accuracy when shooting through the OVF. In addition, an expanded AF brightness range will be available for both OVF and live view shooting. II. When using either the OVF or live view, the new AF algorithm, which features more stable performance, will utilize deep learning technology to further improve it tracking capabilities. III. In live view, the AF offers an expanded focus area of approximately 100% (vertical) and approximately 90% (horizontal). In addition, up to 525 measurement points can be used for AF when using automatic selection. 3. Serving professional needs with enhanced data transmission functionality I. The currently in-development Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9 (regulatory approval pending), when used with the EOS-1D X Mark III, realizes more than twice the wireless image data transmission speed 2 as its predecessor model, the WFT-E8 (released in April 2016). What’s more, the WFT-E9 can also be used with the EOS C500 Mark II cinema camera (to be released in late December 2019). II. Serves as a connection to smartphones and other mobile devices via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® 3 . Also enables recording of GPS information at the location of image capture. III. When using a wired LAN connection, the WFT-E9 achieves more than twice the image data transmission speed 2 of its predecessor model. IV. Improved UI for establishing network connections. V. Expanded link functionality with various equipment. Compatible with the in-development Remote Control Pan-Tilt System which enables remote camera operation. 4. Trusted by professional photographers on the front lines I. Strong magnesium-alloy body provides high reliability. II. Rear-side buttons important for operation are back-lit to enable menu operation in dark conditions. III. The camera’s memory card format has been changed from CFast 2.0 to CFexpress, enabling faster data writing. In addition, the camera will include two memory card slots. IV. AF Start button features a new internal device that enables fast AF tracking setting without users having to release their finger. V. Battery Pack LP-E19 and a newly designed power management system provide a greater number of shots per charge compared with predecessor models.

06 Dec 2019 — Canon Unveils Two of the Zoom Trinity Lenses: RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM The highly-anticipated and widely popular RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM provide excellent image quality with superb low-light capability with its Image Stabilisation and constant aperture of f/2.8 Canon has announced the release of the RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM zoom lenses, which are part of the trinity of lenses for photographers - 24-70mm, 16-35mm and 70-200mm. The RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM are Canon’s first to have Image Stabilisation (IS) in their respective focal ranges and with the constant aperture of f/2.8. Both lenses cater to a wide variety of photography applications - the RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM’s versatile focal length range of 24-70mm makes it suitable for everyday use while the ultra-wide zoom range of the RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM makes it handy for landscapes and events such as weddings. Whether one is an advanced amateur or a seasoned professional photographer, they can rely on the high performance by Canon’s premium L-series lenses. RF15-35 RF15-35 RF15-35 Edge-To-Edge Sharpness Throughout Zoom Range The large diameter mount and the short back focus, which are common features of the RF mount, allows a large aperture lens to be placed near the imaging surface. This allows the advantage of achieving high image quality with gentle refraction of light rays and low aberrations, while retaining a more compact form. Users can expect lens aberrations to be significantly reduced with the arrangement of three glass-moulded aspherical lenses and three UD lenses on RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM and two UD lenses on RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM. The ASC coating on both lenses also help to suppress flaring and ghosting, which could compromise image quality. Unique to both RF lenses is the customisable control ring for exposure adjustment; ISO, shutter speed, aperture or exposure compensation. The tactile control ring allows a more precise control. The tiny yet powerful Nano USM focus drive system allows smooth, fast and quiet focusing. This is especially useful for wedding photographers shooting intimate moments such as vow exchanges or prayers in a place of worship. Astounding Image Precision with IS RF24-70 RF24-70 Both the RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM are equipped with the CIPA standard 5-stop IS, which gives users the ability to capture hand-held night scenes and dark indoor shots with minimal blurring. With the Dual Sensing IS feature for still images, the amount of shaking is detected from the camera's CMOS sensor image information, in addition to the lens’ gyro sensor. By comparing and analysing these information, it is possible to detect and correct low-frequency shaking (slow shaking of the body due to breathing, etc.) that could not be detected on the lens side with high precision. When recording movies or videos, Combination IS (the in-lens optical IS combined with the in-camera 5-axis electronic IS) enhances the effects of image stabilisation even further. The amount of shake that cannot be fully compensated for using lens IS alone is compensated further with in-camera electronic image stabilization. RF24-70 RF24-70 Create Beautiful Bokeh with Bright Aperture of f/2.8 The RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM belong to Canon’s premium L-series range, denoted by the red line on the front barrel of the lenses. Both lenses feature water and dust resistant construction, so they can still perform in the event of sudden rainfall during outdoor shoots. The fluorine coating on the front and rear elements of both lenses helps to easily repel oil and water stains – which can be easily cleaned off with a dry cloth. With the versatile day-to-day focal length range, the RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM can be used for various applications ranging from night scenes to portraits. The large and bright aperture enable users to shoot with less subject blurring at faster shutter speeds even in low light conditions, such as when photographing at night or indoors. For portrait photography, the f/2.8 aperture can create a beautiful bokeh effect, enhanced by the 9-blade circular diaphragm. With the RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM, users can create images that utilise the ultra-wide perspective of the lens and the blurring of the large f/2.8 aperture, expressing unique views of close up subjects. The extra one mm at the wide-angle end of the RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM (compared to the conventional 16mm) makes for dynamic photo expression with more emphasis on perspective and is especially useful for architecture and interior shots. Regarding sales in Thailand, the RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM are available at Canon Authorized Reseller Stores with the price of 79,400 Baht per model.
