Slightly off-tangent, but does anyone else find it strange that when the C300 launched, it launched with a film-maker showing his *completed* film, including editing and PP and all.
When the 1DC was *announced*, they already had a feature film to show on it.
But, 6 months after the announcement of the 1DX, even reliable testers and reviewers have been allowed to touch it, but not even put in a memory card?
I kind of agree here... I think Canon dropped the ball on the 1d X. I saw the price 8 months ago or whatever, and they expect me to feel okay with that price knowing the camera is at least a year old before I can buy it for that hefty "just released" price??
And on top of that, as you state, nothing to show me that really stands out, no examples no raw's no reviews nothing. (although those three of the carshow was pretty epic, lol).
I guess this is a bit of whining and I am sorry. But I've been waiting for this camera to do what nothing else I've had could do since I bought a new 1d3 and it screwed me over...
They ONLY thing a tad wrong with the 5d3 is the pop in the sharpness. It is softer than the 5d2 for sure, never touched the "detail-slider" in Lr before I got the 5d3. Now I have to.
Hoping the 1d X has a weaker filter and more bang in the sharpness.
Canon, stop releasing new products and ship the old new ones first!!
