EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 1D MKIV To 1DX
« on: November 04, 2012, 08:59:03 AM »
How many of you guys here have upgraded to the Canon 1DX from the 1D MKIV and never regretted it?And why?
Thanks.

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.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D2 & 1D4 for 1DX?
« on: October 25, 2012, 01:30:12 AM »
I don't is this will help but I'd rather have 1 1DX than 2 5D MKIIIs.

I've heard and read that the 5D MKIII is a better value than the 1DX.Probably true but I'd rather have one 1DX than two 5D MIIIs.

How reliable is Ken Rockwell?You see,somebody told me that for KR,it seems that the 5D MKIII is better than the 1DX,especialy when it comes to IQ?How true is this?
Thanks.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Tink Tank Sling-O-Matic 10 Camera Bag
« on: September 28, 2012, 12:10:52 PM »
For those of you out there who has any experiences with the Tink Tank Sling-O-Matic 10 camera bag,would you know if a pro body camera like a 1DX with a 70-200 F2.8L MKII lens attached fit into it?

Thanks.

I currently own both the 1D4 and the 1DX.  The 1DX is a completely new animal and my keeper rate is now much higher for sports. The auto focus tracking is in a whole new class for the 1DX and I will soon be selling my 1D4 and getting a second 1DX.

I use several different modes of auto focus on the 1DX which allows me to frame my shots more accurately and more quickly than the 1D4.  I also have the different scenarios programmed into the C1, C2 and C3 settings which allows me to change dozens of settings on the fly with one button (without looking up from the view finder).  There are many other little things I have found that make the 1DX much easier (or better) to use than the 1D4.  I have not yet tested IQ but I plan on doing a side-by-side comparison this week.

Also, my AFMA settings have been much closer to zero with the 1DX as compared to the 1D4 but that might just be my camera bodies and your mileage may vary.  The higher ISO is very usable on the 1DX.  For indoor sports I don't go above 4000 (5000 if I really have to) on the 1D4 but the 1DX allows me to go 16000-20000 without issues.  Full frame is a bit different but bigger glass can help.

Forgive the ignorance but what does AFMA stand for?
Thanks.

Just wondering and out of curiosity,if a person mostly shoots in jpeg,would it be worth getting the Canon 1DX?If not,why?
Thanks.

EOS Bodies / Canon 1DX VS 1DMKIV Auto Servo
« on: September 22, 2012, 09:42:19 AM »
I know that the AF system of the Canon 1DX is so much better than the that of the 1D MKIV in One Shot mode.How about in Auto Servo,how do the Canon 1DX and 1D MKIV compare to each other,especially in low light shooting?
Thanks.

Aside from reach,how do the Canon 50 F1.2L and 85 F1.2L MKII lenses compare to each other when it comes to IQ,sharpness,contrast,and color rendering?Which among the 2 also focuses faster?
Thanks.
