Official DXOMark Sensor Score for the EOS-1D X
« on: October 31, 2012, 10:14:24 AM »
Official Numbers are in
For the people that like the numbers game, DXOMark has released their official score for the Canon EOS-1D X.

The numbers don’t look too bad, though they don’t tell the whole story about the EOS-1D X. I think it’s currently the best DSLR as a whole currently on the market, unless you want the big resolution of the D800.

Outside of resolution AND low ISO dynamic range.

But neither is a dedicated Nikon shooter going to run and buy the Canon 1D X.

Um, wrong (at 16:15): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=VyNFOPrIKmQ#t=977s

1) Green D4
2) AF on Canon

Paper number…there's always more to a camera than just paper scores…people don't buy cameras to do controlled "tests"

I wonder, is there even a site that does proper rating that takes into consideration the lab scores and also have another system for real-life usage scores? Something like usability, speed, reliability etc…things that really matter…

Not such a good DxO score as we were led to expect.

Mikael, what are your thoughts on this?  ;D

Have a look on the charts. It has some disadvantages only in low light ISO DR, the rest is just as good as the D800 or D4.
Besides I just had the opportunity to try one 1D X last weekend, and I can tell, that this beast has an incredibly superior AF compared to anything which I ever held in my hands (including the 7D, 1D mkIII and the 5D mkIII also).

So maybe the sensor could be better, but even this way, this is the best DSLR out there at the moment.

So, Canon Rumors can now dismiss the source of the email they got on Oct, 11 as a (CR0) in the future.

For those who want to know the supposed Scores were as follows...

          Rumored / Actual 

DxO - 90 / 82 
DR -   12.8 / 11.8 
Color Depth - 24.9 / 23.8 
ISO - 3296 / 2786

How can they rate the D800 better at high ISO noise?  Is anyone else saying the same thing?

Surprise! Surprise!  There's NO surprise!

1Dx is a very good camera in all the metrics except the one where Canon is just plain behind and has made only marginal improvements in the last (nearly) decade.

Let's wish them well in their R&D for the next generation of sensor tech.
Which might end up in a Rebel long before it sees a pro body - unless their high MP FF rumor manages to see the light of day.

For anyone wondering why they waited nearly a month after adding 1D X sensor support to DxO Optical Pro to release the 1D X scores, I'd guess it's because they knew there'd be a bit of buzz around these results, and they wanted to drive traffic to their sites now that DxO Optics Pro 8 has just been released. 

How can they rate the D800 better at high ISO noise?

Because the Sports/Low Light Score is based on images downsampled to 8 MP, and when you downsample a 36 MP image to 8 MP, you average out more noise than when you downsample an 18 MP image to 8 MP. 
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

 No surprises about the camera sensor, this fully correlates with my experience with 1Dx and some measurements done by other people - e.g. one French photographer specializing on astronomy - unfortunately do not remember his name.
  For indoor events like sports/shows/artist performances in low light 1Dx is probably the best camera ever from Canon  - results are amazing - one part of that is sensor high ISO performance and the other is outstanding autofocus capabilities.  It does easily what was almost impossible before.  Few days ago I was shooting world stars ballet performance and results are stunning.
  Unfortunately cannot post any shots here - not allowed without special permission from the performance owners.
  But for high DR landscape photography it is definitely not the best tool - I posted some examples recently.
Seems that from Canon for landscaper type of photography 1Ds is still the best one – one good reason to keep it until new big mpx camera from Canon will come to existence.

  And again there is nothing wrong in DXO measurements.
For those who are blaming DXO for numbers which they do not like I would recommend to calm down, learn some math and physics, tests methodologies and procedures and many other related things.  Then digest all that , stop  and try to think and understand what it is all about (I mean DXO measurements).  And one more thing again - they do not measure overall cameras performance features wise,  they just measuring sensor in the camera , nothing more to that.
