1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Timbavati Sth Africa

1Dx 400f/2.8 II & f/8.0 & 1/80th ISO1600

Amazing shot, eml58. I am not sure if it is just me, but I would much prefer it with the top chopped off, so the leopard is in the top right of the pic.

since a compact like this you're gonna want to use ooc jpg alot

I am more interested in its RAW capabilities, than ooc jpg. I do not mind a bit of post, its main attraction to me is the portability/quality combination.

If I do get this camera it will be to use as a 2nd or 3rd camera for video interviews, and as a carry-around to events where I am not working and do not want to take my main Canon gear. Something you can stick on your belt and use instead of grabbing the mobile.

It does sound great, and I am very pleased that I will not be passing a Sony Store, or even a shop that sells this little beauty, any time soon otherwise I think I would also be getting one.  ;)

Definitely looking forward to the reviews that will come out on this camera.

Enjoy your new Fuji, distant.star.

US$ 1,199.00 for the new 16-35 is pretty reasonable. I just wish it was f/2.8. If they make a new f/2.8 version with improvements over the old lens, I will snap one up.

Yes, After that, I buy 2004 Canon 20 D as my Back up camera----Ha, Ha, Ha, And I still shoot with her too.

May I ask why? I gave my 20D away to a friend a long, long time ago. Why would you shoot with that at times rather than your better cameras?

Personally I always like to use the best camera I have.

Dear Friend Mr. expatinasia.
You are right, " We most use the Best Camera that We have "---Yes, BUT, I will not buy 4 1DX Bodies at the same time, Because of High Cost. BUT, when I go to shoot the Activities/ Sport/ Volunteer Racing, I want to have 4 Cameras with 4 Lenses in my hands all the times, with out change the lenses and miss the best shots---Yes, With out contaminate the Clean Sensor  , to get the dust, when I change the Lens in Dusty area.
Yes, MY 5D MK II  is one of the Best HIGH ISO, to shoot in the Dark area, 7D = Small sensor = great to shoot the Birds with 600 mm = 960 mm. ( Full frame Sensor), That give more MM. farther range for Safari, My 20 D = Great Camera in the Sun shine day and When I set up AUTO MODE with my 14 MM. F/ 2.8--Yes, This 20 D. never miss a shot, and Great for Point and shoot for street Photography.  My Dear 1DS = Super AF/ Super fast AF and the most Accurated AF of my Camera= Great for Out door Sport Shooting, BIG BODY and Perfected fit in my big hands.    Yes, My New tiny Baby Canon EOS-M with 22 mm. F/ 2.0 in my Fanny pack, at my belly 95% of the times, to shoot the recorded Picture that I see in front of my eyes in every days., And I do not need to carry my big back pack on my back on every days.

To make  it short :---All cameras have their own Best Abilities/ Best Functions, Like in Army Platoon---Every one in the platoon have their own guns, Difference Guns to support each other, and to do the Right job at the right weapons.
In the Photography , Any Camera  have more than 4 MP = Great to make a great print at = 3X5 inches, or great Photo on the Web Site---No We do not need 22 MP, to reduce the size to put on my FACEBOOK. That Just only my IDEAS.
Have a great day, Sir.

Interesting, thanks Khun Surapon.

I shoot quite a lot of major sporting events and rarely - if ever - see photographers with more than two cameras. I use two, one with a 400 f/2.8 ii and the other with 70-200 f/2.8 ii, because like you say, it is not a good idea to change lenses in the open, but also you do not have the time, so two bodies with different lenses is vital. Each to their own, I guess. :-)

Here are some from the Hamilton/Burlington area in Ontario, Canada. These are all HDR.

I do not normally like HDR so much but some of those shots are very nice. Well done.

rcarca - I know Marlow well, and I hope you do not mind me saying but I think your shots are too blue. Great place for pics though. When I am in the UK I go a lot for coffee.

If you want to buy one of my canvas/fabric 1D X bags let me know. Though I do not have the Canon black box it came in as I threw that away.

As for what I got with the 1D X club (which I still do not fully understand) it was a very limited miniature camera (not 1D X) which is why it has pride of place on my desk at work. I am not willing to sell that (unless we are talking good money) as I quite like it, and I know that very few people have it. BTW I kept the black box for that, and it comes in its own case too.

I have other stuff too if you are interested, including a 4GB 1D X usb stick/thing.

Canon could do regional firmware but they don't.

That would be nice, but then I guess where would it end - we could end up with so many different types of 5D III/1D X as to just complicate matters, and of course the grey market would just go nuts!

I always forget about the 29.59 cut off, which is dangerous as I often do 18-24 minute videos. And tend not to shut off when someone says the wrong thing which means the actual recording can be longer.

Good to be reminded of this. Thanks.

I see it on ebay and it was sold for 108$ 2 days ago with a big rush for the offers.....................................

Seriously?!! I am definitely going to start going through all the freebies I get from Canon now.

Incidentally, among all my stuff, I have a couple of the large fabric 1D X bags, the ones where the handles look like camera straps etc.

BTW Canon Club and CPS are two different things. I am a member of Canon Club (which is open to everyone), am also a member of the 1D X club (something I have never really understood - but as they sent me a very cool present, which I am not selling as it sits on my desk with pride, then I remain a member) and am also a member of CPS, which is of course the most valuable to me - and unlike in other countries you cannot pay to join, nor do they have tiered-membership.

Given that google indexes forum posts the Lexar Compact Flash Failure should be of importance for them to fix in order to instill faith in their premium range to US the photographers !

Maybe someone needs to point out this thread to them and if we all add our piece it will gain higher ranking in google and get notice by somebody with a brain in Lexar  ;)

I very much doubt it. What do we really have here? One person who had a problem with one card. I have a few Lexar cards, including a 64GB 1066X, two 32GB 1000X and a few others and have never had a problem. I am sure there are many more like me on these forums as well. I am also sure that there are a few that have had problems, but that would apply to SanDisk, Transcend and other brands as well. Lexar sells millions of cards per year, but most of the time you would only ever hear about those cards that caused problems. I feel for the OP, and I hope he finds a solution but I really do not think this one thread is going to deter pros from buying Lexar. It doesn't me.

Nice to see your pics, Dolina. I am a very big fan of the Philippines. A wonderful country, with so many beautiful places to see and enjoy.

Thanks, dgatwood. That is what I thought.

So you think I should attach the plate to the tripod foot and sit that on the video head - even when panning and such?

Sitting the tripod foot on the head means I can tighten the plate more firmly into the head which gives me extra peace of mind.

I have a 64GB 1066X, two 32GB 1000X and a couple of others, and am very happy with them all. Thus far, touch wood, no problems.

My only complaint? These promotions only happen when I don't want/need to buy any more!!!  >:( ;D

(may still take a look though..........)  ;D
