Canon 1D MKIV To 1DX

(1/5) > >>

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

I'll be upgrading AND keeping the 1D4. I love this camera and value the APS-H sensor.
Other than APS-H, the only significant thing I'll miss from the 1D4 is the illuminated red AF points.

But it's the sheer power of the AF that is a prime attraction of the 1DX for the way I work. After working for a few months with the 5D3 I think I have some reality on the AF capabilities of the 1DX. Plenty of others have had very high expectations and not been disappointed.

I'll keep it very short, because I could ramble on about this Neo Anderson of cameras for days.

I have neverever even for one second regretted the upgrade. If one thought the mk4 was a big upgrade over the 1d3, you'd be blown away over this upgrade.

Why I love it: Fullframe with superior fps AND the best af ever, not just 90% good, but in many cases 100% hitrate.
The layout, the vf, the grip and feel. But most of all the metering and general image quality. Noise is almost not visible at normal size print at any value under 25600 iso.

What I don't like is poor battery, keep at least two! The new iso button.., too small and weirdly placed. And from what I have found, or not found, the ability to spread the bracketed images on the ev scale with the small wheel and move the whole scale with the rear wheel, like I could on the mk4.

Very small minuslist and about battery, if you hold the button down in a soccermatch I've seen people get 5000 images on a battery but I get around 1100 images, and compare that to the mk3 where I got 3000 easily and you see my point.

1d x THE perfect camera for me, you get so many fantastic moments you just don't get with anything else. Yes one can time the perfect moment and not "need" 12 fps, but not if the AF can't keep up, and with 12 fps you have 12 perfect moments you have never seen in just one second, pretty frikkin' awesome..

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!
