The EOS-1D X Mark III makes for an excellent (if hefty) hybrid stills-and-video camera. The toggle switch shown here lets users quickly switch between the two mediums, and the camera now remembers your shooting mode and exposure settings as you move back and forth. This is really great for, as an example, a sports shooter freezing motion at 1/1000 sec shutter speed for stills, but then wanting to quickly capture some 4K/24p video, where they're more likely to want around 1/50 sec shutter speed.

Impressively, the 1D X Mark III can capture Raw, 5.5K/60p video internally. Just be aware that shooting in this mode means you'll fill up a 128GB card in under six minutes. You can also capture smooth and detailed 4K/60p video with All-I or IPB compression and 4:2:2 10-bit Log capture if needed, though you need to drop to 4K/30p or lower, or engage the 'Super 35' crop mode if you want access to the camera's excellent Dual Pixel AF system while recording.

There are both headphone and microphone jacks for audio, and though there's no sensor-shift stabilization, you can enable up to two degree of electronic stabilization, with the more modest setting having minimal impact on detail retention.

But perhaps you've noticed that the AF-ON button looks a bit different than before...
