EOS Bodies / Re: 1Dx AI-Servo frame rate question
« on: August 12, 2012, 11:38:47 AM »
Mine doesn't do that at all. I would save the settings to a card, reset the camera to factory and try again.

Viggo, you don't list a supertele lens in your sig - do you have or did you rent one?  The OP's issue is with the AF Stop button, which is found only on the supertele lenses, AFAIK.

Kevin - the 'little star' that you assigned to LENS is AE Lock, does the same thing happen with AE Lock assigned to the AE Lock button on the camera?

Ah, I thought he meant the AF-ON button, which I have set to stop AF incidently. I was pretty tired when I wrote the reply, lol.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1DX vs 5D3

The af maybe similar, but the abillity to lock and track isn't... the 1d is soo damn fast and accurate I'm locking and tracking and shooting pictures I never could, even with the 5d3.. and to swap to vertical and have the buttons identical to horizontal is fantastic !!

Noisewise I use 2500 the same way I used 1250 on the 5d3...

EOS Bodies / Re: 1Dx and CF card issue?
« on: August 12, 2012, 02:46:10 AM »
Is this in raw or jpeg? Do you have ALO enabled? Or lens correction? There are a lot of things that can increase file size.

Take the same shot with both and see if the file size is in fact the same.

You can use Reikan in Manual mode for 1D X.. Very easy...

Really? How? When I connect it, it mists says, unsupported, and won't do anything...

I thought the 5d3 was all the camera I wanted, but in the back of my mind, I did remember what a 1-series is like to shoot...

And I think the 1d X is absolutely worth double the money, it doubles your chances of that one perfect moment!

So, got my 1d X in the mail today. And first off, is it worth it over the 5d3? My respons is; LOL!

Second, is it REALLY so that the ONLY button I can assign ISO to, except the one that has ISO written on it is the SET-button?

The reason why I ask is because, man, they placed the ISO-button way to far out on the right, it should have been the EC-button instead! And it's also to small. Why did they do it that way. I almost have to loose the whole grip to adjust ISO... The only bummer so far, the 1d X is frikkin' fantastic! Maaan I missed the 1-series much more than I could remember!

I think it depends on what your shooting.  The option of AF point linked spot metering is good enough for me.  Also for action, if you want the shutter to not go below anything 1/500 or faster is great.  For sports I use this feature.  I've used it on the 1D Mark IV.  You turn on ISO Safety Shift, then set your minimum shutter speed to 1/500.  This way you can turn on auto ISO and STILL shoot with EC.  It is an awesome feature.  The camera is sort of a mesh between the 5D Mark III and 1D Mark IV.  You can also do Multi Expsoure and 12fps just by holding down the shutter button in AI Servo Mode.  Not to mention the ultra-detail in shots that the 1D Mark IV can't do.  I also checked out the multi-point spot metering feature if you don't like Multi Exposure or HDR.  It's a bit different but you can average metering areas into one photo. 

There are features that if you need them, probably does make the camera worth a lot more than the 5D Mark III.  I'm not sure double the price, but certainly more than the 1D Mark IV.  If you purchased the 1D X, my advice is that you begin to expand your photography and begin to use all of these features.  Then it will certainly be worth it.  I'd say minus the resolution, it can do everything the 5D Mark III plus.  It can also do everything the 1D Mark IV can do, plus.

Where can you try these features?  Anywhere.  A good example is landscape photography on a cloudy day.  Even better, sports or action.  Put yourself in situations where you need the advanced features and learn to use them and only then can you really realize what a powerful tool it is.  Good luck.


Well, to me it's CERTAINLY worth it. I used to use pretty much all the features and adjust everything always with my previous 1d's, and this is no exception!! Best Canon ever made, and it's not even close, period.

I think this will be the last camera I buy, until it simply falls apart, which by the feel of it, will take a few weeks  ;D

And I'm glad I saved both a couple of batteries and the power supply from the 1d3 and 1d4.

If only Reikan will support AFMA soon, I will be very happy!

and last but not least one taken with the 5d MK ii.

Oh my! That shot is a killer!

Great images!

I think it's safe to say the 1d X looks like a stop better than the 5d3 at 12800..

Mine will hopefully arrive tomorrow, I. Can't. Wait!

I'm not using canon radio's so thank god they didn't put that (and all the other optional stuff in there, like gps and wifi) because I don't wanna pay for them when I'm not going to use them.

Far as I know there is no linking between the AF points and the Auto Exposure functionality on the 5d3.

Actually, there sort of is, but only when using Evaluative Metering.  In that case, the metering is 'weighted' toward the selected AF point(s).  But Spot Metering can only be linked to AF point on 1-series bodies.

Viggo, if by 'the larger spot' you're asking about Partial Metering (which is 6.5% of the image area vs. 2.5% with Spot), the answer is no, partial is center only.
Thanks!! It's a shame, but the linked spot and ec in M mode i'll use for what's it's worth!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1D X EC and ISO button function swapped
« on: August 08, 2012, 03:52:58 PM »
I haven't done this yet, but on the 1D4 you can set Av mode and minimum shutter speed, to let's say 1/500s.  You then turn ISO safety shift to ON, set your aperture, and put in Auto ISO.  You can also set EC, so that whatever value is chosen by the camera for ISO, corresponds to your EC value.  This is really usefull for indoor sports and I haven't tried it on the 1DX but I imagine it can do this as well.

My 1DX comes next Wednesday - that will be the first thing i set, apart from RAW and expansion point AF

Mine too, getting to the store I'm buying it from on Friday.

I just bought a house twice the size of my old one, I bought new Samsung 55" tv and now the 9300 dollar 1d X, and I don't have a job, please give me applause for my dedication to gadgets! LOOOOOL  ;D
