Canon has confirmed the pricing of its new EOS 1D Mark III following the announcement from last month, however the company has still yet to confirm when the camera will be available on the market.

Priced at £3049.99 RRP inc. VAT, the camera takes over from the EOS-1D Mark II N as the fastest digital camera on the market.

Dual "DIGIC III" image processors drive the camera's pack-leading performance. Canon's purpose-built chips work fast enough to process over 100 Megabytes of data per second.

The camera includes such features as the EOS Integrated Cleaning System that keeps dust off the image sensor, reducing maintenance time and a 3-inch TFT LCD screen with Live View mode they can use it to compose shots too.

The EOS-1D Mark III is a digital SLR camera compatible with the EOS system of Canon EF lenses, Speedlite flash units and accessories.
