Being Canon's Official EOS Maestro comes with its perks. And especially when you get to test out products that haven't even come out to the market yet.
Shanaya and I recently got a chance to have a hands-on experience with Canon's one of the newest and top of the line models, Canon EOS-1D X Mark III.
We were excited to shoot our first real wedding with it, as we knew we had our hands on Canon's one of the most powerful cameras.
Canon has been calling it the "The EXCEPTIONAL Game Changer", and after using the machine, we understood why.
We were really looking forward to testing out the camera's performance in the field of Auto Focus, Speed, and Low Light Performance.
When it comes to Auto Focus, you just can't go wrong with the camera's 191 AF Points. With these, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III was able to maintain its razor-sharp focus even in some of the most dimly lit shooting situations.
Even at a wedding, where there is a lot of movement, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III nailed the face detection feature every single time. And if that is not enough, you can now manually shift focus with just a simple gesture on the smart controller button.
If you are as detail-oriented as us, you will be happy to know that with the camera's 3.2-inch touchscreen, you can now magnify your photos in real-time to make sure that you haven't missed out even on a single detail.
At weddings, everything is spontaneous to a point that even some of the most precious moments can just pass by in the blink of an eye. But with the camera's continuous shooting speed of 20 frames per second (in live mode), we had nothing to fear.
No matter how fast your subjects are moving, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III can nail each and every shot with Complete Accuracy and Stunning Details.
Most cameras start to show noise and grains once you bump up their ISO, but not Canon's EOS-1D X Mark III. With this Canon's new masterpiece, you can now shoot at ISO as high as 102 400 (expandable to 819 200) and still get unmatched crystal clear picture quality.
The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III performed beyond our expectations in every field, and we are thankful to Canon for creating such a remarkable and promising camera.
