EOS Bodies / Re: CANON 1Dx - New presentation & video -
« on: March 27, 2012, 03:01:57 PM »
After watching both videos, and after all those months of waiting, and waiting, and reading all kind of "this and that" on forums, I'm pretty sure that 1Dx is going to be AWESOME camera.
When we lay our hands on our new toy, that will be the minute when we'll forget about all specs, and technobabble we shared so far.
Nothing else will matter, except new, powerfull, amazing piece of photo-art in our hands.

and than...

and than... "they will live happily ever after"  ;D


EOS Bodies / CANON 1Dx - New presentation & video -
« on: March 27, 2012, 11:54:16 AM »
Hellou Canon lovers, especially future owners of 1Dx (myself included)  ;D

I don't know if someone put these videos before on Canon forum, please forgive me if you have watched this. ???

I'm sending 2 links:

1)  New presentation from Ashley McLaughlin -


2) Story about one day in Gran Canaria from Bruno Barbey Canon photographer, filmed entirely on Canon EOS 1Dx.

Something to watch while we waiting for great & final reviews of 1Dx.  ;D


Thank you "Hyles"... and "kirispupis" BIG thanx on your very extensive description between 100mm and 65mm lenses.
Even macro shooting is split in section and subsections, which is great for enthusiast, and little less great for wallet, but... what a heck... no pain no gain.

I'll start my "macro career" with 70-200 + ext. 2x, and than I'll see to my next heading.
I'll be honest with all of you, MP-E 65mm seems like it's going to be my first extreme macro lens.
Maybe hard to shoot with it, but, I am a very, very patient man, and person who is willing to learn... a lot.
Thanks again for your answers folks.
And now... the drinks  ::)

I understand...

Thank you for your answers.
I think there is not much to say here, since the magnification is not on par, or even close to any macro lens on market.
It seems that I will have to purchase MP-E 65mm eventualy, if I want to achieve stunning macro results.

Thank you people for your fast respond to my question.
The drink is on me  ;D

I'm planning to buy Canon EOS 1Dx when hit market, and I now for sure that I will buy 70-200 f2.8 L II with 2X extender to reach 140-400mm. My plan is to shoot macro as well.
My question is...

Did anyone tried to combine this setup for macro shooting?

70-200 f2.8 L II IS USM + 2x extender + extension tubes

What's the gain in magnification compared to MP-E 65mm?

Light setup for this system should be interesting too look at. I presume at least 2x 580EX or 600 (new one) on their stand with attached diffusers placed 0.5m from each side of the lens.

Please post your shots with this configuration if there is any shot at all !  ;)
Thanx in advance.

I liked this sentence froom your post a lot: "Also, it was confirmed that the 1DX will be able to focus at f8 with a firmware update..."

5DMarkIII is great camera, no doubt there, but my hearts stays with 1Dx.

Almost there, almost theeeere...  :o

Thanx 4 sharing !

I'm glad you people liked it! :D

I aim to please, hopefully there will be much more of these demo's previews & reviews in days to come.
Can't wait to spend whole nights loosing my eyes and falling in sleep in sitting position in front of my monitor, reading every little detail about most precious 1Dx.
My preciousssss...


Hello Canon lovers, especially those who can't wait for 1Dx to come out.

Follow this link if you want to see short demo of sport photographer Tyler Stableford who is using new Canon 1DX and Canon 600-EX-RT Speedlite on location to shoot portraits of legendary alpinist, Steve House.

Enjoy...  ;D


Actually, I'm from Croatia, but I will buy my entire equipment in that shop, cause, prices are fair.
I already bought my Gitzo (tripod) there, and the rest of my future equipment just awaits arrival of 1Dx  ;D
Can't wait to start "shooting" with it.
Canon, have mercy...  :P

Nope, 3.190,00 Euro in Italy, price changed up for the last 5 hours.

Check this site  ;)

I'm still want to buy 1Dx, but... ???

In last few days I red many articles, previews & reviews considering new Canon EOS 5D MarkIII, and the stuff there is pretty convincing.
Pictures I saw from 5DMarkIII, videos, noise levels, resolution, new 61 point AF system, 6fps, audio controls, new body... all that for 3.090,00 Euros (body only) !
They implement so many good things from 1Dx, that I really have to ask myself do I need IDx any more.

I understand that 1Dx is professional camera with even more robust body, 12fps, and little less noise than 5DMarkIII, but...

Now my question is... is 1Dx that much better than 5D MarkIII that can easily justify it's double price (around 6.000,00 Euros, maybe even more than that).
Canon has to put a little more effort for pottentional 1Dx buyers, cause, 5DMarkIII looks really, really good.
Is the gap between these 2 cameras big enough (except the price)?
I will wait a little longer for reviews and comparission between these two, but I admit, I'm a little confused right now.
Please Canon, remove my doubts. ;)

On my opinion this could be a great news for "Canon lovers".
Don't be afraid of small cut down in resolution, benefits of new sensor in combination with DIGIC 5 (DIGIC5+) are yet to be revealed.
I think we will be more than pleased with final results for stills & video in new 5D .

My guess for 5D Mark III:

1. Single DIGIC 5+ supporting up to max 6 raw pictures in sec. (+1 for JPG)
2. Very usable ISO 6400 for stills, max ISO for video 12800, camera max ex. ISO 51200
3. AF for video
4. Audio control - same as 1Dx
5. Articulated LCD screen (trust me, this is very usable in real life situations)
6. Double CF slot (same as 1Dx)
7. Weather sealed body (slightly different than 1Dx)
8. Improved AF in 19 points for stills (better than 7D)
9. Price range - from 2.990,00$ - 3.490,00$ body only.

I think these specifications will be applied for new 5D.

p.s. If you catch a little time, please share some information about your new "beast" (from practical aspect)...

It's not his new camera, it's just the forum assigned "level". 1Dx will become public in march 2012.

I know that 1Dx will become available in March 2012. ... just... I hoped that (one of our members) became pre-tester of 1Dx, due to his great knowledge and activity here on canonrumors.
Sorry if I was wrong, no intention to cause any problems ...
My bad...  :-\

This is a little off subject, but I couldn't help myself not to notice one detail that Meh already point out.
One of our members (guess which one) have a beautiful 3 letters in his profile- 1Dx.
I hope we'll soon have a chance to read his 1Dx review.

p.s. If you catch a little time, please share some information about your new "beast" (from practical aspect)...


Lenses / Re: Lens and tripod suggestion for CANON EOS 1Dx ?
« on: November 27, 2011, 07:44:55 PM »
dont hold your breath waiting for that 14-24...

personally the 35-70mm range? I just use a 50mm prime and move around alot
I really like the 50mm prine on FF, I quite often put the 16-35 on the 1Dmk3 which gives me about 20-48 or something and the 70-200 on the 5d give excellent coverage and the 16-35 is really a stellar performer on the APS-H sensor, very versitile for a walk around and still plenty wide enough. I just wish I could get all the 1D mk 4 system in a 5D size body THAT would make me very very happy.

50mm prime will have to fill empty range, everything else is walk practice  ;D
Thanks wickidwombat

From what I see on your galleries I wonder what do you need the 14 fps (and many other features) for... 6900USD !! If you don't use more than 2500 for the clean FF sensor - 4400 USD waisted ! Croatia is a beautiful spot but no Olympics there in near future:)
Invest first in FF-suitable glass and go slow with the dreams of a FFbody. There will be more coming we all hope.

I'm flattered with your visit to my humble gallery.
You draw very good conclusions from what you could see in my gallery, not much of a sport shots, or any "fast one".
One part of the true is that my present equipment is a "little" drawback at the moment, and no ... no olympics near my town, got that right, but...
I'm very happy to say that my next job will require all the power of speed, ISO, HD video, so 1Dx will shine there.
The other part of the true is that I don't buy photo equipment often, couse, till now, I didn't really have any need due to my photo amaterism, but that is about to change, and 1Dx is going to be my good companion on that road.
I hope I'll be able to share my work with all of you people, and to justify this expensive investment.
They told me before, that if you want to make an omlette you have to break a few eggs.
Looks like I'll break dozzen of those eggs soon  ;D
What a heck, we live only once (if you exclude reincarnation), and I don't want to spend the rest of my life in missing good pictures, which is the common case with my present equipment.

1Dx, 1Dx ... my kingdom for a 1Dx (or was that a horse?  ???)

Sorry people I can't be serious all the time.

Signed by

King  ;D
