Canon Confirms 1D X Mark III ‘Lock Up’ Issue, Firmware Fix Coming Soon

A couple of weeks ago, a number of Canon 1D X Mark III users began reporting that their cameras were locking up mid-burst, making them unusable for any sort of high-speed photography. Canon has now confirmed the issue, has found a workaround, and is preparing a firmware fix.

The issue cropped up in early March, when photographers like Hamilton Pytluk noticed that their new $6,500 cameras would simply stop working, shut down, and start back up again during high-speed burst shooting via the optical viewfinder. Pytluk captured the issue in a video, showing how the camera had to literally restart before beginning to shoot again:
