The Canon EOS-1D X DSLR features an all-new AE system to deliver accurate exposures in every frame the camera shoots. The third of a series of six films about the capabilities of the 18.1 Megapixel EOS-1D X examines the camera's AE system and explains how it operates.

In the film Canon Europe's European Professional Imaging Communications Manager, Mike Owen, explains the features and benefits of the EOS-1D X's AE system. He reveals: "It has a 100,000-pixel sensor that's divided into 252 zones for metering -- when you compare that to the 1D Mark IV, with its 63-zone metering system, you'll notice a real difference in the images you'll be able to get with this camera."

The EOS-1D Mark IV's metering system used black and white metering sensors but the EOS-1D X's sensor is an RGB colour sensor that is able to measure not only light levels, but it can also detect colour information and the presence of a face within the frame. Because the metering sensor captures RGB data, it is able to calculate the colour of the scene. Thus it can provide colour-tracking information to the AF system and face detection data both for AF and Auto Scene detection.
