Canon 1D-X, delayed

Canon 1DX
Canon EOS 1d X

Canon expected to start selling the new beautiful Canon 1D-X from March 2012. This will not happen. A UK representative of Canon told Associated Press that the pro camera based on an 18-mega-pixel Full Frame sensor will not be ready before the end of April 2012.

But, in the mean time, we learned a few things about feature items which (surprisingly) had not yet been disclosed by Canon:

  • Its weight: 1530g
  • The capacity of its new battery (between 250 views in LiveView at 0°C, and 1120 views behind the viewfinder at 23°C)

The price in UK will be £5,299, and 6.250 euros in the rest of Europe.

I don’t know if this should be a reason for rejoicing of worrying, but Nikon also tripped on similar issues with the D800E and D4.
