Thank you for you positive comment rpt.
I shoot only raw, so... 12fps is quite enough, anything more than that will look more like video, and less like photo slide show.  ;)

Dylan777... yes... 1Dx is a king of the dark!  8)
Speed, low light and shadows are it's strenght,  allowing me to be much more creative.
The only limit is my imagination.

Now, I just have to imagine much, much more  ;D

Thanks Mr. Bean, I couldn't agree more with you.
Canon 1Dx is indeed powerful tool.

Thanks Click, Quasimodo, Eli  :)
First I had to correct all 800 pictures in Lightroom and Photoshop, and than I "connected" them in Proshow Producer 5. Magnificent and very user friendly program, and it's not to expensive. Ideal for simple editing of pictures and video.
Thanks again for your comments  ;)

Hello everyone.

There is no video in this presentation, no video, but...  ;)

No worries. Archangel says bigger is better, right?  If the 1D X is impressive on its own, just think how much more impressive it would be inside a big ol' sound blimp.

 ;D now that's a kind of answer I like to hear  ;)
Thanks for "breaking" this serious conversation Neuro.
I'm always more for fun and smile, than for fight, just... I don't like constant complaining about same stuff, like weight, size and shutter noise.
It's a free market, buy what ever you like if you can afford it.
Unfortunately I'm not that rich, I lost my job in furniture sales 3 years ago, and ever since than I'm trying to do my best with photography.
I don't have money to buy 5-6 different cameras, and same amount of different lenses, so, when I had to choose just one camera, I chose Canon 1Dx.
I agree with the statement, that if you can afford 1Dx and 5DMarkIII, that it's probably better to choose "silent one" for church and similar situations, but... I can do that, so,  I have "thick skin" and have to improvise.
I could put 1Dx between two small cushions and... voila... silent mode ON  ;D

Silent shutter mode should "ease the pain" little bit there.
Last year I shoot dedication of the church.
Many high ranked church people were there.
Everything was extremely quiet.
And if I managed to shoot entire ceremony in 1Dx "shutter normal - loud mode", without a single complain of bishop and others, than I really can't find situation where I couldn't shoot with my 1Dx.
Here is the link to the mentioned ceremony:

BIG VOTE for my BIG GUN!!!

1Dx... +5 and why?

because...

1. It's BIG, ideal for big hands.
2. It's for people who can carry heavy stuff, and not complain like a little girl about weight and size.
3. It's a photo weapon, and not a little toy
4. Better ISO.
5. Faster shutter speed 12-14 fps - MONSTER.
6. Louder shutter - I paid 6.200,00 Euro for freekin' camera who gives a sh.. if attracts a little attention (you are photographer, you should have "stronger armour" ...  "thick skin", if you can't handle pressure of few people complaining, and you care a lot about what they all have to say, than you shouldn't do photography... stop crying and start taking photos. (You don't buy a Ferrari, and than drive only in 1st gear, you shift your 6 or 7 gears, and enjoy in speed of light, with big sound coming from your engine, not your speakers).
1Dx = Ferrari
7. Better water sealing.
8. 400000 shutter cycles.
9. Better video quality.
etc...
I hope you get the point why 1Dx over anything else on this planet ...
No hard feelings people, but pay more - get more.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS-1D X Firmware 1.2.1 in the Wild
« on: January 21, 2013, 09:20:26 PM »
Jipppie, another firmware for my beauty coming soon...  :D

O.K. ... now...
calm down ...
take it easy ...
pray for 1080p-60fps ... 720p-120fps ...
I mean ...
that's small compensation for not including (and never probably will) 4K in these beautiful piece of photo-machinery.

C'mon Canon ... let us use all the power from the heart of 1Dx ... from all 3 processors ... give more "juice" to our expensive toys... PLEASE !   ;)

Arch out...

"Soul of the Ancient Forest"

Wonderful image and great post production.  What lens was that if you don't mind?


Thank you very much for your kind comment Studio1930.  ;)
I shoot in raw only in order to pull all kind of "maneuvers" lately in post production.
I used 1Dx +  EF 70-200 f2.8 L II IS USM, combined with B&W S03 F-PRO Serie E (77mm) circular polarizer.

"Soul of the Ancient Forest"

Wonderful image and great post production.  What lens was that if you don't mind?
+1,000,000,000

Absolutely fabulous!

Thanks rpt, thanks people, I'm really glad you liked this photo that much.
I really have a lot more to learn with my new Canon equipment, but so far it was a "light jump" compared to my previous camera Sony R1 (it's not comparable, I know), but imagine all the freedom with this piece of machinery!  On my previous camera I used only ISO 400, and even with that low ISO my pictures was filled with noise... and now... oh my God  :o
I feel like I stole something from aliens that came from the future!!!  8)
I loooove my Canon!
And now... there is no limit.
More from me soon  ;)
