I order the 100-400L II from Adorama on November 15th, and I just got an email that they're shipping it to me today.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Question for 1DX owners
« on: December 09, 2014, 09:08:16 AM »
It depends on how much you crop your photos....I usually crop my photos to some degree, and 18 MP leaves some room for cropping, so it gets the job done for smaller prints, but if you crop and want larger prints it might not be adequate. 

My hope is the 1DX MKII has a 24-30 MP sensor to give more flexibility for cropping photos, and yet the camera will still have the world class high ISO performance, as well as be able to shoot 12+ fps.

I own both cameras and I reach for the 1DX the majority of the time, because it produces the best RAW files, and ultimately the best photos.

If size, weight, and price are the biggest factor, then get the 5D MKIII, but just make sure you nail the exposure, because the RAW files do not have the same flexibility as the 1DX offers in post processing.

A few ergonomic improvements that I'd like to see for both the 1DX MKII and the 5D MKIV:

* The autofocus points light up in red, and are easy to see, in all autofocus modes

* The camera has back buttons that are backlit for night shooting...like the Nikon D4

* The ability to program the shutter button, so when it is pressed down half way, the autofocus points can be moved with the joystick on the back of the camera....like the Nikon D4


As a former Nikon D4 owner, these are a few of the ergonomics that I wish I had on my Canon 1DX and 5D MKIII.

Thanks

What was Canon thinking using a UHS-I SD slot in an action camera???

I sure hope Canon doesn't make the same mistake when they launch the 5D MKIV!

Now it was time to put in some memory cards. I put in a 128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CF card into the CF slot, figuring that this new camera would take full advantage of the UDMA7 speed. Many of you know that I was disappointed that Canon did not make the SD slot in the 5D Mark III in the newer UHS-I standard. This means that the 5D Mark III could not write to an SD card any faster than 133x. And that is just not fast enough! So, the burning question in my mind was "Does the 7D Mark II support the most current SD spec (which is now UHS-II)?" And I was bummed to see that the SD slot is only UHS-I, once again showing that Canon is behind in their adoption of the newer standards. What this means is that the SD slot is much faster than the 5D Mark III, but not nearly as fast as it could be. I guess I will stick with CF cards to get the fastest buffer clear in this camera.

Hi Everybody:
Just wanted to clarify a few things from the broadcast that I saw were questions here:

(1) It's is 20.2 megapixels and always has been since I first heard of the camera. That was just a total brain-freeze on my part. I don't have a 24-megapixel version. That was just me misstating one of the specs.
(2) The reason I didn't shoot in Raw was because I don't have any program that is updated to support the unreleased camera. No support yet for Lightroom or Camera Raw, so I had to shoot JPEGs. That being said, I shoot JPEGs for sports either way, but I would have shot some just for example purposes.
(3) I am not sponsored by Canon. I hope to be one day, but at this point, I am not so I bought my Canon gear by selling my Nikon gear -- it was not given to me by Canon. I did get some loaner gear to try out. Nikon let me use loaner gear from time to time, too. So did Sony. Now, if I could just get Hassleblad… ;-)

High five to Forum member Sabaki. I'm with ya. :)

All my best,

-Scott Kelby

Scott,

Thanks for taking the time to post on the forum!  Hopefully you'll stop by here more often!

Can you share with us anything you're hearing about the development of the 1DX MKII or 5D MKIV, and when they might be available to consumers?

Thanks

I enjoyed the video, but how can Scott give an honest opinion when he is sponsored by Canon???

Integrity?
Professionalism?

Do you have evidence that Scott does not have integrity?

"honest" was  poor choice of verbiage on my part, what I meant to convey is that anyone who owns a certain brand of product, Canon in Scott's case, is going to have a bias opinion in favor of the product they own...this is just human nature!

In any case, being that I own both a 1DX & 5DMIII, I like the fact that Scott is using Canon gear, because it appears that he is giving Canon some good input on how they can improve their products!

I can't believe Scott Kelby, and his assistant, had to break out a calculator to figure out a 1.6 crop camera with the 70-200MM lens attached equals 320MM on the long end...did the guy graduate from high school?!?!

Hi,
   The first part of the video will give you the answer of your question:

   Have a nice day.

Thanks....I feel bad for Scott...people get way to emotional, and aggrevated, when it comes to discussing camera gear!

That is a pretty cool marketing idea!!! 

I hope this is not just hype, and Canon is actually going to announce a revolutionary new full frame camera or a kick ass lens!!!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D Mark II AF Points Lighted??
« on: October 04, 2014, 05:31:08 PM »
I agree with what others have posted....I sure hope the 5D MarkIV & 1DX MarkII have a bright viewfinder with easy to see red autofocus points that light up in all autofocus modes for low light shooting!!!

I've owned the Nikon D4 & D800 and the red lighted autofocus points in Nikon camera's are easier to see in lowlight conditions compared to Canon! 

Thanks

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: October 03, 2014, 12:04:06 PM »
Love the images I get from the 1Dx. Early morning shot into the light, it catches focus somehow. This one is a slowish shutter speed to get some movement in the wings and water.

First of the day by Tom W W, on Flickr

Awesome photo!!!
