1D X Sample Images / Re: Weddings

Very nice images. However, i feel the shallow DOF is overdone in the first image ... seems to have turned into an abstract. Took me a more than a few seconds to figure out what the image was about.

Cheers ... J.R.
Thank you for the feedback  :)

The photo was made with a flipped lens, so I didn't have control over aperture. That's why I bought an extension tube recently to cover this type of shots  ;D

Though I feel that the image is special due to its extraordinarity. Anyway, I'll take into account what you said and will probably replace the photo with something more interesting  ;)

Something I would like to share  :)
Critique is welcome.

There's no way to tell if the technology really worth our attention (lots of processing power required, unknown drawbacks of the approach, etc.) We'll need to look at real world results when they appear  ;)

I would like to have AFMA for lenses with curved focal length, where you can assign different adjustments to each focus point. And it'll be great to have exposure compensation for manual mode with ISO set to Auto  :)

Nothing comes for free. Just keep trying and you'll get the color you want with experience  :)
Why did you do her so neutral? If she's under sunlight, shouldn't there be sunlight cast? (Think about it)  ;)

I had my brand new 1DX since early Feb 13.  I had also bought an extra original LPE4N batteries.  Was out with my family to a Marine Aquarium for a weekend holiday and brought my 1DX along with only one fully charged LPE4N.  Was at the Aquarium for about 4 hrs when my 1DX suddenly showed low batt and shut down.  I took the batterries out for a while and reinserted and it still did not work.  Last night, I put the battery into the charger and it showed more than 50% charge remaining.  When I took it out after 2 mins in the charger and put it back into 1DX, it still have 64% remaining.  Subsequently the 1DX shut down again after a few shutter clicks.  I decided to swop to another LPE4N and everything is Ok now but I have not tried to shoot until the battery is around 60% level.  I checked the "System Status Display" and there is no "Caution warning".  Has this happened to anyone of you before?  What do you think is the problem, the battery or the camera?
I'd send both to Canon. Just in case there's something that doesn't work in the exact combination  ;)

I think these are quite good, especially the first one: it's captured a moment, something only still photography can do.

( + I'm intrigued to know how you didn't bump into the camera on first shot. Did you both jump over it  :D
It was 17-40 at 17mm, we landed right in the front of the camera. Dancing practice during last years helped  ;D

One of my friends has a small shoulder bag for each lens he uses, he leaves lenses and bags opened for efortless switch between lenses. Something like this:

As for me, I work with my wife, so she can cover me with a medium focal length while I'm changing to something else from my backpack. The challenging part is to make the switch before you miss the shot  :)

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

Did some testing of the 1DX in blowing and/or reflecting snow.  Even with the temperamental 85L, the 1DX focus was fast and spot on!  Some blue sky, white snow f/11 shots were easy as well with the 1DX.  Love this camera.  ;D

(Used 85L, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II & 200 f/2)
Great shots :)

Yeah, and it has 353 shots left  ;)

Hi timkbryant,

It seems to be a 1D Mark II. Why did you decide this is a film camera?
