Canon : Product Manual : EOS-1D X Mark III : Selecting the Drive Mode

Solution

Selecting the Drive Mode

Selecting the Drive Mode

  1. Press the Drive mode/AF operation button (Timer 06sec).

  2. Select the drive mode.

    • While looking at the top LCD panel or viewfinder, turn the Quick Control Dial dial.
  • [Single shooting] Single shooting

    When you hold down the shutter button completely, only one shot will be taken.

  • [High-speed continuous shooting (High-speed continuous shooting)] High-speed continuous shooting

    When you hold down the shutter button completely, you can shoot continuously at max. approx. 16 shots/sec. (Live View shooting: 20 shots/sec.) while you keep holding it down, using LP-E19 or using DR-E19 and AC-E19.

  • [Continuous shooting] Medium-speed continuous shooting

    When you hold down the shutter button completely, you can shoot continuously at max. approx. 10 shots/sec. (Live View shooting with [Shooting: Shutter mode] set to [Mechanical]: 8.0 shots/sec.) while you keep holding it down.

  • [Low-speed continuous shooting] Low-speed continuous shooting

    When you hold down the shutter button completely, you can shoot continuously at max. approx. 3.0 shots/sec. while you keep holding it down.

  • [Silent single shooting (Silent single shooting)] Single Soft shooting

    Enables slower mirror movement and shutter cocking in viewfinder shooting than in normal shooting.* No mechanical operation is performed until the shutter button returns to the halfway-pressed position.

    Mechanical sounds are essentially the same as in normal shooting.

  • [Soft continuous shooting (Soft continuous shooting)] Soft continuous shooting

    In viewfinder shooting, enables slower mirror movement and shutter cocking than when set to Continuous shooting.* You can shoot continuously at max. approx. 8.0 shots/sec. (Live View shooting: max. approx. 10 shots/sec., or with [Shooting: Shutter mode] set to [Mechanical], max. approx. 8.0 shots/sec.).

    Mechanical sounds are essentially the same as in normal shooting.

  • [Soft low speed continuous (Soft low speed continuous)] Soft low-speed continuous shooting

    In viewfinder shooting, enables slower mirror movement and shutter cocking than when set to Low-speed continuous shooting.* You can shoot continuously at max. approx. 3.0 shots/sec.

    Mechanical sounds are essentially the same as in normal shooting.

  • [10 sec. self-timer] (10 sec. self-timer) Self-timer: 10 sec.

    [2 sec. self-timer] Self-timer: 2 sec.

    For details on self-timer shooting, see Using the Self-Timer.

Caution

  • Maximum high-speed continuous shooting speed is available when shooting with a fully charged battery at a 1/1000 sec. or faster shutter speed and maximum aperture (which varies by lens*) at room temperature (23°C/73°F) with flicker reduction disabled.

    For details, refer to the Canon website.

  • Using a Speedlite will decrease the maximum continuous shooting speed.
  • Setting the drive mode to Silent single shooting, Soft continuous shooting, or Soft low speed continuous has essentially no effect on mechanical sounds in Live View shooting or with [Enable:Mirror down w/ Set button] set for mirror lockup.
  • High-speed continuous shooting High-speed continuous shooting may be slower depending on the type of power used, the ambient temperature, ISO speed, flicker reduction, shutter speed, aperture value, subject conditions, brightness, type of lens, use of flash, shooting settings, and other conditions.
  • With [Shooting: Anti-flicker shoot.] set to [Enable] (), shooting under flickering light may decrease the maximum continuous shooting speed. Also, the continuous shooting interval may become irregular and the release time lag may become longer.
  • With AI Servo AF/Servo AF, the maximum continuous shooting speed may become slower depending on the subject conditions and the lens used.
  • Maximum continuous shooting speed may be slower in low-light conditions.
  • Maximum continuous shooting speed is slower when the camera's internal temperature is high and the drive mode icon is blinking, in order to prevent internal damage to the camera. Even higher internal temperature from continued shooting may cause significantly slower maximum continuous shooting speed, and the camera may be temporarily unable to shoot until it cools down. If the drive mode icon is blinking, allowing the camera to cool down with the power switch set to Power off is recommended.
  • Low temperatures may cause the battery itself to become very cold, and the drive mode icon may blink, in which case maximum continuous shooting speed is lower.
  • There is a longer time lag than usual with Silent single shooting, Soft continuous shooting, or Soft low speed continuous until the shutter is released after you press the shutter button completely.
  • When internal memory becomes full during continuous shooting, the continuous shooting speed may drop off because shooting will be temporarily disabled ().

Note

  • Continuous shooting speed indicated for each drive mode is the speed under default camera settings. You can set the continuous shooting speed for each drive mode in [Custom Functions4: Continuous shooting speed] ().
