Canon EOS-1D X vs Nikon D4

Canon EOS-1D X vs Nikon D4

The titans square off
Matt and Jamieson of Jamieson Dean Photography decided it was time to put the Canon EOS-1D X and Nikon D4 and see which was the better camera for them.

The drama builder
Matt has been shooting Nikon for a decade and is actually considering switching systems to Canon. Will he stay, or will he go?

They put the cameras through a battery of tests including:

  • High ISO Raw image noise
  • Low-Light Auto Focus
  • Auto Focus Speed
  • Auto Focus Consistency
  • Highlight & Shadow Recovery
  • Screen Colour & White Balance

For Matt, the green screen of the Nikon D4 was a big deal to him and one of the main reasons he was thinking of jumping ship to Canon.

Needless to say, the greenish cast that the Nikon D4 exhibits is enough of an issue to put Matt into a big decision scenario; stay with Nikon or switch to Canon? Though there have been reports and claims of fixes and work-arounds to counter the green screen issue, we found that none have been effective in resolving it. Canon has an incredibly enticing system in the 1DX…is it enough to sway Matt away from his beloved Nikon system after over a decade of professional loyalty?
