How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

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.
