Maybe someone can answer this question. If Canon has, in fact, distributed this camera to specified folks in preparation for the Olympics, why hasn't someone taken the camera and done some serious work in evaluating it? DPReview, I would think, would have gotten one to evaluate by now.....just wondering....I ordered mine back in December from Hunts and just pre-paid the entire amount so that I could go on the 'A' list, which has me #10 to receive my camera when they get them....they are not predicting when they will get them but they did say that they think that they will have them soon, like by July.
I'm guessing because people are full of crap.
Now go to OpticsPlanet and they don't have it. This has been like this for weeks now.
I've talked to them on the phone and they don't actually have any in stock, as you can imagine I was slightly frustrated that they did list it on amazon as being available..
They can order it from the manufacturer and the sales rep said he expected that order to be filled by July 15th.
The 1DX is bulky and heavy. I figured most hobbyists would want something smaller and more compact for travel.
Meh. Both my bodies have grips anyway.
Neuro - did you order an additional battery too? I am still in two minds about this... Do you know if it will perform the same as 2 batteries in a 5D battery grip? I know faster focus and extra processors will most probably be power hungry... but I think I am going to hang in there and order the battery a bit later.
I did not order a second battery, yet. Based on the specs, battery life with the 1D X Will be a couple of hundred shots less than with two batteries in the grip of my current cameras. But, since I almost never come anywhere near exhausting the batteries in a single session or day of shooting, I will try it with just the one battery, and see how it goes.
- Larger battery (some people say this allows certain lenses to focus faster... not sure if this has been proven or not when compared to a gripped 5D)
Yes, this is true. With an add-on grip, the batteries are not connected in parallel, they are used alternately (you can see this from the incremental shot counts). The 1-series battery delivers a higher voltage which drives the lens' AF motor faster.
Hope will be when my bank account is debited $6800...
Live chatted with B&H today, they have no way of giving priority to CPS platinum members unfortunately, but I was told I am high on the list with an order # xxxxx86xxx ending with low numbers
They suggested possible delivery by my next project, June 28. One can only hope
You where lucky, the representative I chatted with told me is against company policy to give such information. And there is no priority other than your place on the cue which won't discuss either
I preordered the morning or the 13th, so I hope I'm not to down on the cue.
I think this is the key paragraph. That and the likelihood they will sell the software to other designers in other fields.QuoteDuring the design phase, the system can help reduce the number of prototypes required and, in addition to shortening the amount of time spent on development, can contribute to minimizing costs and environmental impact.
