EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1D-X underexposure
« on: November 14, 2013, 01:41:14 AM »

yes, I do experience similar underexposures, but it in my case it depends on the lens e.g

24-70 2.8 L mkI -2/3 EV
70-200 2.8 L mkII 0 EV
Macro 100 mkII +1/3 EV
85 F1.2  -4/3 EV
35 f2.0 mk II 0 EV

of course these are rough averages

Most were shot in  AV mode, around F5.6, evaluative metering.

It would be great if we would have something similar to afma, so an exposure correction by lens ???????

Software & Accessories / Re: Will the new MAC Pro support 10 bit colour?

Thanks for all the good advice.

I am a bit worried about the fan, I will go and check it out before I buy one.

Indeed it is CG276 (that was a typo).

Still in doubt if a top end NEC (PA271) is not a better option then the Eizo CG276.

Software & Accessories / Will the new MAC Pro support 10 bit colour?

The new Mac Pro will have dual AMD Firepro Graphics cards.
Does this open up the possibility of supporting 10 bit colour or is the MAC OSX Mavericks operating system still the bottleneck?

I ask this because I intend to spend $$$$ on an Eizo CG267 and a new Mac pro once it will be out in December


please do not be to hard on yourself. This has happened to me several times, both with 7D body and 5D II. It never happened with the 1DX. I had more "spontaneous releases" when combined with an extender , especially with the 2X III.

For me, I carry the combo on BR strap and I think that during walking, I gentle touch the release button with out knowing it . That combined with the mass of lens/exntender combo is apparently enough to release it

Hope this helps

Got mine today, including the flash which I did not order. good deal for 299$, worth the wait


bought one this morning in Perth, West Australia.
They had just received a fresh shipment of ~ five Lee circ polar, but they forgot to order the matching 105 rings.
As always, we pay a premium in OZ, 475AUS $, which is just over 400 US$

I am happy with my 1DX and the rest, but I must say that I am deeply disappointed with the level of service from Canon Australia

Some samples. Both at F3.5, one tilted down 3 degrees, one tilted up 4 degrees.

Distance from lens to box was approximately 25 cm. Height above the table approximately 20 cm.

I am about to upgrade the firmware on my 1DX.

Has your lock up problem been fixed?
