Canon have produced a handy set of video and pdf tutorials for you to download and keep as reference. These easy to follow guides explain with step by step instructions on how to operate the Canon 1DX DSLRcamera and better understand the menus and features on it.
The Time Code Custom Operation for DSLR video users and video compression methods options, allows the user to set readable time code for video editing programs and allow how video is stored andis compressed according to the needs of the user.
This is in addition to spot metering, finder display, subject recognition and multiple exposure shooting ideal for HDR photography or combining multiple exposed images to create a composite.
