Sophisticated HD Recording at the Touch of a Button.
EOS HD Video Recording
Addressing the requests of the pros, the EOS-1D X captures HD video with an unprecedented level of sophistication for a digital SLR. It offers both All-I and IPB compression, supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile, and automatically splits files greater than 4GB (FAT specifications) for extended recording up to 29:59 minutes without interruption. It offers the option of timecoding only during recording (Rec Run) or at all times (Free Run) - useful for multi-camera shoots. The EOS-1D X offers easy operation with the new Live View shooting/Movie shooting button. Menu options can still be set even when the Live View image is displayed. A dedicated menu tab for video capture allows functions to be changed quickly on the fly. Improved sound recording adjustment capabilities offer 64-step volume control; and a sound recording level meter that is accessible through the Quick Control screen during video shooting. With the Silent Control function, adjustments can be made quietly with a touch pad located on the inner portion of the Quick Control Dial. The built-in wind filter helps suppress unwanted wind noise that can distort or muffle sound. The CMOS sensor's new drive system significantly increases image processor performance, reducing color artifacts and moiré.
Compresses each frame. Although the file size is larger than IPB, each frame is not affected by the previous and next frames, making it suitable for editing and extracting frames.
Compresses the movie frame by referencing the previous and next frames. High compression is used, making it suitable for recording long movies.

The "Go to" Camera
When in doubt, I always pull this camera out! It does the job really well! Executed everything I demand it do to! I went with this camera mainly for its low-light performance and the ability to focus anything my eye wants to focus. I'll make this review short. This camera made my life a whole lot easier! It's any professional photographer's dream. Heck, it made my dream come true! Thanks Canon!

Best camera out there
as both an indoor sports and portrait photographer, I've rented this camera numerous times, while saving up to buy it. Nothing matches this body for high ISO performance, almost noise free at 32000 with an awesome burst rate when needed ... black dogs running at top speed in low light are tack sharp and the detail is A M A Z I N G !!!
this camera is soooo worth the price, I'm already saving for a #2 :)

A Must for the Working Professional Photographer
First time I used the camera was at the Army/Navy game on December 14, 2013. The game was played late afternoon (3PM) and in the snow, and eventually sleet/rain mix. The camera performed like a champ!!
While playing with the camera at home, I shot a performance in a coffee house using available (candlelight) light at ISO 51,200 with minimal grain.
Although a little pricey, this camera is well worth the price. Highly recommended!!
