The only review on Amazon for the 1Dx has a similar incident, and canon changed the camera. He describes shutter lock up after trying to full up the buffer. Unless this is a post from one of you guys


Interesting. That issue sounds nearly identical, though I didn't actually get an error code at all. Mine just completely locked up. And when I checked the error log on the camera, it was empty.

Thanks for posting this, Wilmark.

Given that mine occurred during an extended set of quickly taken photos, I wonder if maybe the card and the camera somehow lose sync with one another, leaving the camera waiting for a reply that never happens.

I've tested my card pretty thoroughly: ran chkdsk on it several times and then wrote a small Perl program that copies large volumes of data to it quickly to stress it. The card (which was being handled through a usb reader)  didn't have any issues.

If it is failing due to a missed handshake, it could be a simple matter of changing the firmware to more gracefully handle this case.

Or maybe it's not this at all. Given the relative low frequency with which it's occurring (you'd think a systemic issue of poorly handling a protocol exchange would be more pervasive), maybe some units have a manufacturing defect -- this is my worst fear and the one I used to justify exchanging the camera.

I'd love to hear what you find out, though.

Haven't yet gotten the new one, the old one is just on the way out the door. I'll let you know.

For those who might be interested, I decided to exchange my camera for another. While it's possible I just tickled it in a way others had not (I think that's unlikely as I've only taken 2,600 photos over 6 time separate sessions), it's also possible that the issue was something like a cracked board or another similarly hard to reproduce and/or track down error.

So, for my own peace of mind, I decided to try my hand with another one.

Do you have any update on your end? Any luck with Canon?

Just curious.

Those are awesome. I really like the second one in the second group. Nice job :)

Thanks, HeavenHell & DB.

DB, I did use AWB. The koala was sleeping under a very warm lamp. The color in the photo is actually correct. Like you, I played with the WB (though in LightRoom). While it definitely looks more "normal" with the koala grey, in the end, I decided to keep it overly warm as (right or wrong :)) that's the way it looked.

Thanks, bdunbar79 =)

Yeah, the AF on the 1DX is phenomenal. So lightening quick -- especially on the 70-200 L IS II (a bit slower on my old 28-135 mm EF).

1/160 sec, f/3.2, ISO 250, 130 mm -- wish I had 1/500 sec (or less) and 200 mm (so I didn't have to crop so much)

I was lucky to get this at all since it happened at the speed of a humming bird.

I've shot over 2,400+ photos with my 1DX. I've only used the 70-200 f/2.8 II (my favorite lens) and never ran into this problem. This past weekend, however, I did get the camera to lock-up.

As a note, I do have orientation specific AF points set -- as does the only other user I know of to see the 1DX lock-up.

For those with no errors, how much customization of the camera settings have you done?

I was wondering if this could be a more extreme case of the err80 issue previously mentioned. That one (and the AFMA bug) were both linked to the AF linked to orientation setting.

Mark and I both have that set.

I could unset that, but since I have no way of reproducing the error, I'd really never know if this worked or not...
