There are a number of accessories that have been developed exclusively for the Canon EOS-1D X which are not compatible with other Canon DSLR bodies.
Canon GP-E1 GPS Receiver
The first of which is the Canon GP-E1 GPS receiver this GPS receiver feeds Latitude Longitude and altitude information, allowing this data to be stored in the metadata of a picture taken with the Canon EOS-1D X.
A new feature is the ability to also log movement – latitude, longitude, elevation, and the Universal Time Code which will ultimately allow viewing of camera movement on a PC after shooting. The receiver will also record camera direction when shooting.
Canon WFT-E6A Wireless File Transmitter
The Canon WFT-E6A is another new accessory designed specifically for the Canon EOS-1D X which Canon says will transfer files at up to 2.5 times as fast as the old wireless file transmitter, in addition this new unit is expected to provide greater range and stability allowing pictures to be securely sent to a remote files server while shooting beyond the range of the previous model.
Canon EOS-1D X LP-E4N Battery Pack
Battery wise the Canon EOS EOS-1D X will support the Canon LP-E4 battery pack which is the same battery pack that was designed for the previous EOS 1D flagship models but there is now the newly developed LP-E4N Battery Pack that was specifically designed for the Canon EOS-1D X and offers around 10% additional capacity, in addition to the ability to view exact battery information on the screen of the camera similar to that found on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and 7D
LC-E4N Battery Charger
To go with the new Canon LP-E4N Batter Pack there is a new charger, there is little written about this new charger however it is mentioned under the section What’s in the box on the Canon EOS-1D X webpage.
As more details and price is made available on these Canon EOS-1D X accessories we will update this page.
