-MJPB – For 4k movies Motion jpg is used to compress the movie recorded, each frame compressed separately and recorded without compression between the frames, huge file can be expected, because of low compression
-IPB – compresses multiple frames during recording, smaller sized files can record longer clips
-ALL I (I-only) compresses one frame at a time when recording more suited to editing

Built in mic

The built in mic is monaural. There is a headphone jack which the Canon 1Dx hasn’t got.
