The thing about Time machine is that you will need to just get a bigger drive whether it be a 4tb external with plenty of room or a NAS which is overkill.A solution is the following:

a: Backup to a NAS that supports time machine
b: use a reliable cloud backup like either SOS online Backup or upload per shoot to smug mug/zenfolio
c: swap the nas with an identical NAS once a month and reconfigure time machine.
d: only if you really want to be safe. (install the nas in a safe that supports an ethernet cable and keep it in another room in the home/office.

Really to keep it simple just buy a 3-4tb external for now and start looking at cloud backup solutions. You can expand from there. It is hard to recommend something when I do not know how long it took you to fill up the 1tb drive and your budget.

Makes me wonder if I should return my 1dx and wait since I have the time.

I agree. The wb accuracy, metering, color rendition are noticeably better than my 5d. Just have to get used to the weight but thats why I think the 5d and 1d make a great pair. The af accuracy is much better to me. Only thing is wish the power switch was like the 5d and the live view/video switch was there but thats not a deal breaker.

Finally pulled the trigger. Could not be happier. Ended up paying $5449 for a new USA model. Now I can work on some more L glass. Thanks so much for everyone's comments.
Congrats, and wow, that's an amazing price! 

Also, for those following this post, let this serve as a warning...if you even touch the 1D X, it will make you buy one...first Dylan, now KKCFamilyman... ;D



CONGRATS KKCFamilyman  :)

+1 with mackguyver "if you even touch the 1D X, it will make you buy one"

Thanks Dylan. I should have given up a long time ago. Just kept trying to resist but when I went to bring the 1dx back they took off more money so just had to leave with it. I feel it will compliment my 5d well. The only ? I have is when i put the battery in and turn the lock it is pretty hard to turn. Is that normal?

Lenses / Re: Family Holiday To Florida
« on: June 13, 2014, 10:17:21 PM »
Just came back and it rained a lot so swapping lenses was an issue. I recommend the 15-85 and bring 70-200 only for wildlife like animal kingdom. I used a 5d mkiii with 24-70 and was fine. I used the 70-300l for a few shows and animal kingdom but thats it. The 16-35 and 35mm 14 were nice to have but never made it on the camera. A good flash was better. I was on a family vacation so depends on what your after. I have used the 60d with 15-85 there and was fine.

Just love the af locks on. Exposure seems more accurate. The raws definitely have more latitude. If you pull the shadows too much in the 5d, the banding is apparent and the 1d files gives you more. What was nice was not the burst but how accurate it was. Caught so many more moments of the active kids.


So when will u place the order???   ;)


Probably this week. Going on vacation and not sure if I should pull the trigger or wait till I get back. I really want it but  was thinking of getting a few more lenses to my arsenel like the new 16-35, 17mm tse, 8-15 fisheye, 50mm 1.4 sigma.


Hmmm - tough call.


Yeah the 1dx is awesome but if I move on the lenses I will be pretty set fo awhile and probably wait till a 1d whatever or 5d4 comes out. But like I said the 1d just has so many features that complement my 5d.

I wish the next 1d body will have an option to order with no built in grip
It's the single deal breaker for me I don't want a house brick these days but I want the performance

Thats part of my hesitation. Would pay more to have the feature/sensor in a 5d body with the grip option.

I am in the same boat. I am bringing my 5d3, 24-70 2.8 II, 35mm 1.4, 600ex, 70-300L (only one day where I will need the reach. May bring the 16-35 also. I am going on a Disney cruise with a large group and then all the WDW parks. I know the 24-70 should cover most of that I still find myself researching the sony alpha a6000 with lenses, SL1 with my lenses, Canon G1x Mark ii, etc. I just think in the end if you don't bring your best for some of the more photogenic places you are going then where do you bring it that's new? Anyone else in this boat? If so what did you do?

This Blue Jay was the main reason I said could the 5d track that? I know its not any award winning photo but it is good to me especially in a burst you don't know you have it like that till playback.

So, what is the verdict KKCFamilyman?


He has been smitten - there is no cure. He simply has to get one for himself!

Heavily so want it.

Really want it but have decisions like get it or

16-35f4
Sigma 50mm 1.4
More backdrops
The new 1-400 when it drops

So really really tempted.
