Phottix have stated that they are working on 1d x ettl support, but for now only manual works. However you can still use the ettl communication line to remote adjust power in manual mode.

Thanks to all for the tutelage!  I just tried it out the Oslo airport hotel window, with a loaner 800mm, at the planes landing/taking off and I think I've got it nailed.

One surprise discovery: if you press the LCD Light button while reviewing images, it brings up the Screen Brightness adjustment.   (the tradeoff is that you lose the ability to illuminate the lower LCD to find the voice recorder button) 

Nice easter egg (to me anyway).

I worked ten years at the electronicsshop at Gardermoen (Osl airport) a few parties at that hotel, LOL.

I have the Set button configured to zoom to 100% at the selected AF point with one press, great for checking focus in playback.

Ditto! ;D no wheelscrolling needed.

I also found å workaround for the having to push play to scroll through images. When a shot is taken I push the shutter to go out of review mode then push SET button twice to zoom in and out and then scroll the big wheel. Then i don't have to reach for the playbutton.

I love the new way. Use the SET button.

I would much rather see ISO 25 and less, without any loss in highlight range.
Hmm, interesting!

+1000 I've been thinking that for quite a while now. To use my large apertures in any light would be great. shoot at 1,2 and the 1/8000s goes out pretty quickly and to fiddle with ND's craps out the VF and focus. I have NEVEREVER used above ISO 25600, and that was only to test it out, 12800 is more than enough for me, and that leaves 4 stops available iso on my 1d. I would very much like to trade those in to have iso 3 ;D

Canon as well as Nikon make their new camera announcements in the weeks leading up to Photokina.  So expect multiple announcements with the best coming about 1 week before.
As noted, Canon seems to have adopted a announce now - design later strategy.  This prevents rumor sites from getting a good handle on a upcoming model for the simple reason that it does not exist.

About those announcments, what's happened to this page? No word prior to the 1d x firmware, nothing on the 6d, which has serious rumors elsewhere. Nothing stating Arthur Morris's founding that the 1d X focuses at f 8 with the Kenko converters. A lot of stuff going on, but The front page of this site have been pretty quiet for a while now. Seems firmware at least is an easier than lenses rumor to catch.

This could've been a fun topic for this site:

Lighting / Re: Phottix Odin triggers now support 1/3 stops in Manual...

Are you serious?  :o Damn, I just sold mine last week !!!

That sucks, but I posted this more than a week ago, sorry you missed it.

You forgot to mention the incredible batterylife on the Odin transmitter :D

EOS Bodies / Re: New 5dmiii user - love the camera so far

Nice shot ! I would have loved to see just the bird against that green background.

I find case 6 with 8 surrounding points with -1 on the sensitivity works well for these very quick subjects.

Lenses / Re: 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II not fitting securely to 5DMKIII body???

Same with the ones i have had (4 of them) strange but the 300f2,8 had less play. The 24 has none whatsoever.

This hasn't got anything to do with hdr, it has to do with the basics of how the camera handles light.

This is good news ... I wish they will start production asap ... Canon can count me in as their customer for the EF 28-300 ... it will be incredibly convenient during vacations.

Not if it's the L-version...

I use the ggs glass for the 5d3 on my 1d x. It works, and only glued around the edges so on glue on the screen... i have cracked it once so I'll keep using them as the screen was undamaged..
