Canon produces EOS-1D X AF settings guidebook

April 2012

Canon has produced a new 48-page guidebook that explains all of the AF settings for its 18.1 Megapixel EOS-1D X DSLR and is now available for download on CPN.

To make AF set-up easier the EOS-1D X has a dedicated AF settings menu where a description and example uses for each function are displayed. The guidebook explains all of these menu settings and is packed with illustrations, menu screens images, photographs and AF point overlays, so it’s an invaluable guide for photographers who want to get the most out of the sophisticated and customisable autofocus system within the EOS-1D X.


The cover of the new EOS-1D X AF Setting Guidebook.

The in-depth guidebook offers detailed explanations of how to use the various high precision features of the camera’s 61-point AF system, including using the new dedicated AF menu, the presets and parameters of the AF Configuration Tool, AF Area Selection Mode, using cross-type AF points, setting the AF shutter release characteristics, switching AF points and Custom controls for effective AF related functions.

The EOS-1D X’s high-precision AF system has 61 user selectable AF points, 41 of which will function as cross-type sensors that are able to detect contrast both horizontally and vertically, and five dual cross-type points for extra precision.

To achieve the goal of optimum AF in diverse situations and lighting conditions, the EOS-1D X collects data from the 61-point AF sensor, the auto exposure sensors, an AF correction light-source detection sensor and, with certain lenses, a panning detection gyro sensor. These sensors provide a benefit to One-Shot AF shooting but the major benefit is found with AI Servo, where they can help identify the subject by colour as well as contrast.

To download the Canon EOS-1D X AF Setting Guidebook just click on the link in the Downloads box on the right side of this page. The guidebook is currently available in English but will become available in other languages in the near future.
