For sure. Don't even need to improve that much from 1DX and I'll drop $10k easily. 2 stops on ISO performance, 2 stops on DR, 2 stops on MP. Sold.

Do you guys really feel like you need all of that RAM. I have 16 GB and I rarely ever have to hit a scratch disk and my files can be pretty big. My PS efficiency score rarely drops below 100% and my scan files are far bigger than standard DSLR files. The more ram thing was definitely true when RAM sticks were measure in MB's but 64GB sounds like an awful lot. Just curious .This means, that you must have a OS, that is capable to adress more than 16GB RAM (Windows 8 64 bit or Wondows 7 64 bit Enterprise) and a Mainboard with 8 RAM-slots. Greetings Andy
You have a nice system there Andy. However, the Enterprise version isn't necc for the RAM addressing, just 64 bit. In fact, most consumers can't get the Enterprise version. The Enterprise version of Windows is just the consumer Ultimate version but licensed for enterprise. All versions of Windows work the same for home users. Unless they need domain support, Home Premium is fine. I prefer Pro because it does have better user tools and remote desktop support but otherwise, it doesn't matter. I'm guessing that you might be an Action Pack subscriber if you're using Enterprise...
Rusty, the system I use is the one I explained here "My current PC is:" My argument was, if you want to handle big PS files you should have as much RAM as you can get with at this time available (and affordable) consumer-technology. This is a 2011-3 system with 64 GB RAM. But you are right. Windows 7 64 bit Professional is just the right Version, not Enterprise.
Depending on intended use, 16GB is likely fine. I put in 32GB but I bought that RAM about 3 years ago when it wasn't as expensive. RAM is a bit high right now.
As for graphics cards and displays, yes you can have multiple displays attached to one video card with no problems. The calibration would be per display because the calibration is display driven from a physical calibration sensor attached to the panel with the calibration software using the sensor input to tune the graphics card to make the adjustments digitally.
The robbery comes in when people think they need cards this fast - and expensive!
Why do you say that?
First, the delivery guy didn't know what is inside the package.
Second, why didn't you sit somewhere by the door so we could see you. A lot of company did not turn off the light even if they're off.
Third, this is a holiday, the schedule is tight so nobody wants to look for a door bell, wait for someone to come (and most of the time nobody will come on a Friday after Thanksgiving).
Last but not least, it is the seller responsibility for not requesting direct signature on delivery. If the seller didn't think the product is important enough to request for it then what make you think the delivery guy will treasure your package.
The batteries are in series and get used equally, but there are some possibilities.
1. A bad battery. Remove the bad one. This would be a 99% + probability
2. Bad battery charger not fully charging batteries.
3. Current leakage in the battery compartment or related bus bars of the flash that affects only one battery. Look for any contaminants.
4. Excessive heat in the flash right next to one cell that is causing a problem with it.
That's all that immediately comes to mind.
Please be aware that the flash produces enough heat to burn fabrics.
They can, but if you shoot like this be aware that your precious 600ex might not be around for long. Consecutive Full power flashing kills the flash tube, next to burning through your trousers :-o ... personally, I'm probably buying a cheap clone for these situations (full power with power pack) and protect my original Canons.
background sound the shark theme from Jaws.
1Dx II with high mega pixel "dual resolution" sensor....
36-40 ish "full resolution" and 6 or 8 fps raw.
some sort of binning or photosite consolidation to 16 mpx for high speed at 15+++
New AF sensor w/ AF at the highest frame rates,
DPAF capability but much faster than 7dII etc.
Perhaps backside illumination so each photosite is larger (see samsung)
Still at the 6-7k price range.
I have it on good authority that I am completely wrong
