1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ f/7.1 & 1/800th ISO400

Still enjoying your images eml ! This last one looks like the mythical three headed dog in Greek mythology - Cerberus. I have to say I find Africa a rather frightening place and feel totally naked without something comforting riding on my hip  ;)

Ewinter - impressive rock concert pictures, the second one makes my ears hurt just looking.

Greatland - wow ! Super shots of the bears.

There was a comment on this thread a while ago about the images being irrelevant to how good a 1Dx is. I disagree; it is interesting to see the calibre of photographer who chooses to use a 1Dx and the various difference scenarios they use it for.

Personally I don't want such a big lump of a camera unless I'm using very big lenses - which I guess most of you guys are.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm quite a tall bloke so the 1DX feels just right for me, I don't get any problems with it


Also, Arbitrage: congrats, I've only had mine 2 weeks so I know the feeling! Do you use the AF spot meter at all?

Again, blown away by what some of the other posters in this thread can do.
My work doesn't hold a candle up to some of these photos.

Here are some more of my efforts:


Just amazing B&W Images, especially like the first one, great Photography under what I'de say are extreme conditions.
Thanks, that means a lot having seen the calibre of your work.
I'd like to shoot color more, but these venues are so poorly lit  I often have little choice.
Many people I know question my purchase of the 1DX when I had use of the 5D iii, but I find that it just doesn't cut it in these situations.
I find the 5d to be a nice tool. But to me, the 1 series are art.

I still wouldn't have the first idea about putting a plate on a gimbal though ;)

Try getting this on a brand new 1DX and see how you feel. I just got the sensor cleaned

WNM -1787.jpg by Elliot Winter, on Flickr

Clevedon, UK. Shot with a 10 stop ND just after dawn
Nice Elliot!  :)

Thanks Krob. It's the first time I've really done landscape.
I find composition at 16mm to be very difficult. However, the light is gorgeous which makes for a change.
It's better than what I usually shoot in, which is -1 EV lit by a single red LED stage lamp ;)

Not the usual birds and wildlife, but I've just gone to the 1DX. Some from a gig shot recently:

Nice Ewinter, especially like the middle Image, almost Lionesq re the Mane, sorry, Hair.

Welcome to the world of 1Dx.
Many thanks, it's quite hard to get really good gig images. I find the 1dx to be the only body that doesn't limit me, now I just have to get better :p

I'll have 3 dogs, one chihuahua, one sausage dog and one doberman. They'll be called 35/1.4, 135/2 and 200/2
You are hereby certified as a Photo Geek  ;D
Great. Can I have the certificate in an uncompressed format for printing? ;)

Skulker said: "Its photographers who take pictures not cameras.  ;D"

Indeed. All too easy to forget that!


Although that is a very common phrase I disagree. If that was true we all would be shooting compacts because they would be good enough if we just practiced enough.

It's no guarantee to get great pictures with great gear, it is very easy to shoot cr@ppy pictures with great gear, but there are great limits to lesser gear that isn't possible to overcome.


Amen. And I think there are shots I can take with the 1DX that just aren't possible with the 5dIII.
I give some people either camera and have to tell them where the shutter button is.

I can't answer to the video question, but there are lots of people who buy gear and just leave it on the shelf for months before selling it back to the shop I work in at a loss. This is how I get most of my gear- mint and only 2/3 the new price

What is the point in buying expensive gear if you won't use it?  To me, gear is worth it if I will use it to the point it costs me less than 10 cents an image, ideally 2 cents.

I have no idea. They're mostly rich people who like their L lenses because they have a red ring, and the status it gives them. I'm happy for them to do it- I get great lenses at amazing prices.
I use my gear- it's a tool, not a collection. I've put 2000 shots on my new 1dx in 3 days, and that's without any sports events happening.
Ultimately, the shutter is worth the cost of replacement on pro bodies, and I didn't buy the camera so it can devalue on the shelf. It'll be losing value in my hands, where it should be

Calling your dog 'L series' just doesn't work. How about fluorite?
