At 18MP, the X produces clean photos at 12000ish, low light.

yes. and Sony A7s is 2500 at launch and will be below 2000 street pretty soon. ;-)

Nevertheless Sony A7s is a useless product. 4K recording only with a not-yet existing 3rd party recorder (expensive and 2 peieces of equipment to lug around). And 12 MP resoultion is just not goin' to cut it in terms of resolution for a stills FF camera in 2014.

Still looking forward to an improved A8R ... same sensor, better AF, fully electronic, 100% mechanics-free shutter  with X-Sync to 1/8000s, battery charge 500+ shots and a 4k "retina" EVF ... and no video out whatsoever. ;-)

My source said A9r is even better - 5stop better  :P

Cute  :)  Nicely done Dylan.

Thanks Click.

I'm sad, that I'm about to sell one of my 5D III.

Rodeo action yesterday with the 1dx and 70-200 and 300 2.8.

Full sun at high noon so the light was quite harsh and from straight above, but i did the best i could

Great action photos Northstar.

Yes, indeed. First 400mm f2.8 IS II, follow x5 600er-rt & transmitter and now 1dx. I believe I'm done for 2014. For some reasons, Edward doesn't believe that ???
Me neither ... It's only June ;)

Another SIX months to go!


 ;D LOL
Add me to the list of non-believers

I'm dreaming: 16-35mm f4 IS + 200mm f2 IS + 100mm macro + 600mmish = by end of 2015. The prices on big white are going UP  ;)

The RX100 models are still fantastic and I'm now a bit bummed because I know I'll cave eventually and end up getting one too. :(
+1 ... I'll be getting the 100 MK III within this month.

sounds like your GAS kicks in AGAIN....... ;D
Indeed  ;D ... I've taken a liking to Sony mirrorless cameras and lenses ... the more I use them, the more I like them ... it has been 2 months since I touched my 5D MK III & the 70D ... but my Canon lenses do get a work out with the a7 ... I can easily carry from 12mm (FF FOV) to 200mm + 2 Sony mirrorless cameras in my office bag, its fun and convenient when the size is small while still providing great image quality.

You going to need more space under your signature soon ;D

I went to local camera shop last week, just looking for camera backpack that can hold x2 5d III with 24-70 II and 70-200 attached. I ended up with this............. ::)
Congratulations! That is one impressive camera ... I understand how easy it is to get tempted ... that's one of the reasons I sometimes do not carry my debit or credit cards (especially when I am going to a good camera store), coz I am scared  I'll end up buying something that I may not use much ;D

Yes, if you carrying that giant around, people will think you are a real photographer. The bigger the better!!

I do like my RX1 and A7r + FE 55. The X simply works better with bigger lenses.

Current 7D does well for outdoor sports. Increase frame rate to 10fps will get a lot of interested. IQ will be better, should I say slightly better ::)

I have zero interest in crop sensor, however, I still want to see real specs too

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Damn you 1DX!!!!!
« on: June 13, 2014, 09:43:52 AM »
I tried it at the store...fell in love.

5D2 and 5D3 already listed for sale. :( There should be a warning on this site about that camera.

I thought I was the only one  ;D

Just like others said "you going to love it". I thought my 5D III is good, well, it's good, but 1dx is better. Even 12000ISO ;)

I would go so far as to say the 1DX is a stop better at high ISO than the 5D3. Just wish it wasn't so expensive and that I hadn't missed that deal for $5000 :(

I saw the $4999 deals last week or so, but couldn't pull trigger due to unauthorized dealer, plus those units are not US model. I decided to spend $1000 more and bought one through authorized dealer. Anyways, $5000 or $6000 is a lot of money and I want to make sure my X is real X ;)

I bought my 5D3 grey market and never had a problem! Is there a difference between US and non-US 1DX models?

My 5D3 had a different charger than the US model...but no biggie. Unfortunately I can just squeeze $5000-5500, so hopefully there's more deals out there.

I do not know the dif between the two. I often heard people buying BRAND NEW cameras through unauthorized seller came with missing pieces. However, the savings are HUGE.

On the postitive side, there are happy buyers too. I'm sure $4999 will come again. Just get ready

Thanks guys

Home finally - lonnnnnnngggggggggg day at work.

Really enjoy the camera so far. I made some adjustments:
1. I'm down to 3 modes now M, Av and Tv
2. Down to 2 metering modes now - evaluative and spot
3. No more pressing * in spot metering mode - just select AF point and fire. LOVE IT
4. People hate the X shutter sound, NOT ME, I like it. REPEAT - I LIKE IT
5. Much more to discover

I will pair my X with 5D III tomorrow, my 3yrs(pre-schooler) celebrates end of school year. Will share some photos
The 1DX shutter can be compared to the sound of a high performance car engine. I love it! But sometimes it gets a bit loud. In your case (and mine) you have the silent mode on the 5DIII for that, so you're covered in any case.
You've had quite an upgrade year :) Enjoy!

Thanks Eldar.

Yes, indeed. First 400mm f2.8 IS II, follow x5 600er-rt & transmitter and now 1dx. I believe I'm done for 2014. For some reasons, Edward doesn't believe that ???
