Title: My Canon EOS-1D X Has Arrived!
Post by: Canon Rumors on July 04, 2012, 09:39:13 AM
Finally eh?
My Canon EOS-1D X has finally arrived! I think I actually preordered it before it was announced.

First Impressions?
Not many yet. I have touched this camera countless times at various photography trade shows, so nothing is really new. It is really nice to actually be able to put a card into one of the slots and save some images.

I will be using this camera pretty hard for the next little while and will let you know what I think.

Availability in the United States should come on Thursday or Friday, I’ve confirmed this with B&H.

A Production Canon EOS-1D X & EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake :)

Preorder the Canon EOS-1D X at B&H | Adorama | Amazon

Please post some results of the 1D X using the 40mm lens, I am seriously considering this pancake lens with my 1D X (when it finally arrives)

How is the nose relief (the distance the eyepiece pushes you out from the LCD)? The Digital Picture indicated it might be different from earlier 1D bodies

Wanna send it to my house and let me borrow it? ;D REVIEWWSSSS. I need points to convince my dad to get a 1Dx instead of a 5D3. He normally uses a 1Ds3, and he already got me a 5D2 (2 weeks before 5D3 got announced -o-)

Oh, and that 40mm.. is freaking adorable on that camera.

Hysterical -- the pancake lens on a 1dx.  I bet you don't find too many of those in the field.  I agree with iris chrome that it looks very cute though.

Oh, I dunno.  I'm looking forward to the combo - since it's basically no deeper than the body, it'll fit in a Lowepro S&F Utility Bag 100 AW, which will fit in the outer pocket of my computer satchel - likely I'll bring it along on overnight trips whereas otherwise it would be the S100 only.  Also, it'll pair nicely with the 70-200/2.8 IS II when the latter is a little long - bringing the pancake is like having a second lens without really carrying a second lens!

Just got my B/H tracking number

Congrats!!  Can I ask...what was your order number (as in 1019###xx for web orders)?

I talked with my local camera dealer, I can still be #1 on his waiting list, since the previous #1 cancelled out.  I'm waiting to see some real reviews.  Is it worth twice the value of my 1D MK IV, for example.

I was just told the same thing; I was also told that I would not make the initial allotment, and they expect their second shipment to come sometime next week. My question is, do you think that the smaller local shops have gotten their first shipments in two batches as well? If so, there's still a chance I can get one by this weekend from one of the other stores with whom I've placed a pre order.

likely I'll bring it along on overnight trips whereas otherwise it would be the S100 only.

Who needs a Point & Shoot when you can have a 1DX + Pancake?
Now you just gotta find a jacket with pockets big enough to make it a true 'pocket camera'.

Worth noting - I was told on Monday that they'd be getting a shipment just after the holiday, and my order would be fulfilled from that. Seems clear now that was accurate, since people with lower order numbers are getting tracking numbers, it's the second shipment that my order will ship from, and they knew that on Monday.

Just curious, I was playing with the Connectivity menu today, and enabled the LAN port as FTP and as Media Server. I am trying to find an easy way to import the photos quickly into Lightroom via gigabit LAN, however I could not get the 1DX to be recognised as a network location to import from.

Wondering what you guys are doing as far as import workflow, I've just been using my card reader for now.

I ordered mine from Amazon a few minutes before 6:00 p.m. on March 16.  This was within an hour or two of when they started taking pre-orders, as they started two days after B&H. So I was one of the earliest pre-orders on Amazon.   

Within the last hour, my shipping status changed from "Not yet shipped" to "Shipping Soon."

I'll post an update when I get an actual shipping notice and tracking number, but I thought some of you out there might like to know that Amazon appears to be receiving some 1DXs on a similar schedule to B&H and may be shipping soon as well.

I have had mine ordered since January with a smaller dealer.  When you guys start to receive your cameras from the big dealers like B&H, Amazon and Adorama please let us know.  Shipment from the larger dealers might indicate the smaller retailers could get one or two soon.

Actually, it seems like the smaller dealers have already received some and have shipped them out to customers. this goes along with other recent canon releases (5diii, bg-e11, 600ext, etc). the smaller stores got them in a bit earlier, but of course their numbers received were much less. three smaller stores i have a 1DX pre-order with all received some this past tueday. but one received two bodies, one received "a handful" and one received ONE body...

Really bummed as I paid for next day air... This totally just ruined my plans for the weekend.  Wife is out of town, so was going to do some serious, real-life, side by side testing of 1dX. 1dIV and 5d3.. I will have to postpone comparing until it actually arrives....

Looks like a real 1Dx for man, and a plastic Vuitton bag for woman. Good home management ?

Yes, he has his priorities straight.  1D X in the front seat, wife in the back.  It's simple.

Or he bought the bag to soften the reaction when he walks in with a new 7K camera.

Perhaps the camera was for his wife, complete with the latest Vuitton camera bag

His camera was a Nikon 3200 ::) ::) ::)

I could use that excuse.  "I bought the camera for YOU honey."  Then disappear with it for hours on end.

Tested my 1DX with the Canon EF 200L 2.0 IS and it works fine without any noise anomaly (as opposed to the reports with the Canon 5D Mark III)

 Lens serial number is part of the batch that was affected with the canon 5D3 service notice.

So Glad to get my hands on a 1serie body for the first time.
My local store just called me to annonced me that my 1DX has arrived.
Since i'm not (yet) a CPS member i thought i wouldhave to wait like an other month before canon would ship mine.
Anyway, i'm really happy with it and can't wait to test it in various situations !

(started three years ago with T1i, a year after i got a 7D, last year got my 5Dmkii and now this bad boy completes the picture)

I think we should buy 2 x 1DX to hang different lens on. Never keep them together at SWMBO would only see the one with 1DX labels :D

My other half always have a great way in expressing things, she said the 1D X is a
Toy for Big Boys, and coupled with the Pancake it simply look gorgeous.
