A great compliment for the 1DX,especially if you need the reach.

EOS Bodies / Canon 1DX ITR AF Feature
« on: January 29, 2013, 10:25:37 AM »
Forgive the ignorance but what is the ITR AF feature in the Canon 1DX all about?Is it true that if it is turned on,it slows down the auto-focusing of the camera a bit?And lastly,when is it best to use this feature and when is it better not to use it?
Thanks in advance.

Now,it's working again.Maybe,I observe it for a few more days and if the problem resurfaces,I 'll have my camera and lens seviced.
Thanks a lot guys for all your replies.

EOS Bodies / Canon 1Dx Problem
« on: January 28, 2013, 01:18:48 AM »
I am having this problem with my Canon 1DX lately.It seems that it cannot turn on.I have to take out the battery first and reinsert it before it works.It seems also that this only happens when I use my 1DX with a the Canon 70-200 F2.8L IS MKII lens.Wi other lenses,it seems to work well.Would anyone know on what is causing this problem?Does it have to do with the connections?
Thanks in advance.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS-1D X Firmware Specifcations

I am happy with my 1DX and any fixes or added features via firmware is just icing on the cake (and I don't care much for icing).  The red focus point feature was a nice add last time and the fix for the 200 f/2. 

Canon appears to be listening to the photographers and adding features that are wanted such as disabling a button that may cause issues.  The current 1 series bodies do so much more than the first generations every did.  We should be thankful.  :)

+1 here.

It's just a remote chance but check the electrical contact pins on the camera.  Make they are clean and not bent or deformed.  I had issues similar in the past and after cleaning the contact pins with contact cleaner formulated for gold pins the issues went away.

Yes,I'll do that.Thanks,everybody for all your inputs.

i do not know much about 1dx but sometimes a tight lens hood could cause this problem also... have you try with other lens?

I tried it with other lenses and I still get the same problem so I guess that it must be the camera and not the lens.

No,I am not in Focus Priority.By the way,for your information,it doesn't happen most of the time.It only happens from time to time,especially if I just turn on the camera.It started acting like this only since yesterday and that is what puzzling me.

EOS Bodies / Auto_focus Acting Up
« on: January 12, 2013, 01:40:37 AM »
Yesterday,when I tried out my 1DX,there were times when the auto=focusing had a hard time working or not working  at all.A few times,I have to press the shuttet button(Both Vertical and Horizontal)harder to take a shot and there would be a few times when it wouldn't work.This is the first time that it has happened.By the way,this doesn't happen most of the time.Like I said,it was only the first time this has happened.It only happens about 5% to 10% of the time since yesterdayWould anyone out there know on what is happening.Is there anything wrong with the lens contact of the cameraOr,is there something wrong with the shutter release of my camera?You see,I tried out different lenses and still get the same problem.

HMMM...New ergonomic design? Why? The 7D's, and 5D III which borrowed from it, ergonomics are pretty damn stellar...

7D & 5D3 ergonomics are pretty good but I'd comfortably reserve the Stellar award for 1-Series bodies.
Non 1-Series bodies feel almost clunky by comparison. I use both on a daily basis. Ergonomics is one of the defining points of difference between 1-Series and 7D/5D3. Once used, it's hard to settle for less.

If the 7DII can close the gap with further ergonomic refinement then what's there to argue?


+1 here.One of the reasons that made me choose the 1DX over the 5D MKIII even if it was twice more expensive.Of course,that is aside from the 1DX being a bit better and AF and a bit better higher ISO performance,and last but not least,the 12 FPS as compared to the 6 FPS of the 5D MKIII.

Would make a good backup camera for the 1DX,especially for the reach factor.

Forgive the ignorance but what is a contextual bone?

Means add come context to the question, for example with this thread, if this were the case, maybe starting out by saying you have both a 1D IV and a 1D X and are wondering if you should keep the 1DIV, and what others who've made the switch from 1DIV to 1D X did/thought.

Thanks for the information.

I'm sure we all accept your apology - and it was big of you to give it.

Context for questions is good. Throw us a contextual bone next time.

How many of you guys here have upgraded to the Canon 1DX from the 1D MKIV and never regretted it?And why?

You've been asking these one-line quiz questions about the 1DX since July, without ever responding to or thanking the people who replied. In August, you even asked where you could get a screen protector for the 1DX.  ???

Just buy the damned camera!

If you read all the threads that I have started,I always end it with "Thanks."In regards to buying a 1DX,I have done it already a couple of months ago.

Saying "thanks" at the end of your question isn't the same as acknowledging those who actually answer your questions, which is a common courtesy.

Also, you never provide any context for your questioning. Wrongly or rightly, it is very easy to infer from this question, just like all your previous questions, that you don't already have a 1DX. Indeed, it's hard to understand the point of this question from a current 1DX owner.

Okay.Got you.My Apologies.
