Big, heavy, and expensive, Canon's full-frame 1D x may be the ultimate professional digital SLR. It can capture 12 frames per second, shoot noise-free images at ISO 3200, and can get perfect sports and action shots with its fast auto-focus system. If you're a Canon pro, you've probably been saving for this one, so here's your chance to break out that cash and get the camera you really want.

If pure power is what you're after, and you need to have the absolute best, you'll want to get behind Canon's latest beast -- it doesn't get much more eXtreme than this.

the Canon EOS 1D X is an incredible tool. It's super fast and that's its main selling point. But it's also strong, has a battery that more or less refuses to die per charge, and produces images with class leading dynamic range...the 1D X is an astounding pro-spec DSLR worthy of all kinds of...
