The 1D X Mark III is the most capable SLR we've seen in terms of video features. It can record Raw footage at 5.5K (4K-D in menus), and offers a number of compressed 4K and 1080p options if you prefer. Slow-motion is an option too, but is limited to 120fps capture at 1080p resolution.

Pros
  • Fantastic image sensor
  • Fast autofocus
  • Excellent video toolkit
Cons
  • No in-camera noise reduction

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The EOS 1D X Mark III is just as impressive as a video camera as it is as a stills camera. Video recording capabilities and suite of functions have been very carefully considered to come up with a hybrid camera that's on a par with anything in the mirrorless world. The 20MP sensor can hold its own against the Sony A9 II's 24MP flavor.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Excellent optical viewfinder
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • No EVF
  • No electronic image stabilization
