iPhone5 or 1Dx
« on: May 09, 2013, 08:46:52 PM »
I've been saving my $ for a 1Dx and my phone is dying.  I'm getting a new iPhone5 which will set my 1Dx fund back a little but that little gadget allows me to take decent images when I am not carrying my 1D3 or 5D2.  I can carry the iPhone5 everywhere, anywhere, and anyytime.  Now, what can I use to mate my L glass to my new iPhone5?

What's the point of the title of your thread?

I have the iPhone 5 and its terrible. Hard to get proper focus can't control aperture or shutter speed. Tiny screen compared to competitors. Get the 1dx! Or get a cheaper phone and 1dx. If apple doesn't start doing things better I'm gonna switch. My ipad mini doesn't have a flash! How do you forget that!

Sell one one between your 5D2 or 1D3 and buy your Iphone 5 + 1DX.  Problem solved.

So you will give me the $5000 price difference between the 1Dx and the used 5D2 and 1D3?  If not, PROBLEM NOT SOLVED.  If I sell both, I'm still $3500 short.  Your Republican math is an epic fail.

If you're getting an iPhone 5, I really recommend this little ebook...
http://craftandvision.com/books/eyephone/.

$5 and lots of great ideas. For the Apple-free-community, most of the ideas carry over to other cell phones. :)

The reception on the 1dx is terrible. Can't get a signal anywhere.  Could find only 1app. The screen isn't retina and isn't gorilla glass.  No WiFi either.

Neither.  Gear doesn't matter.  Just take mental images and store them in some metaphysical cloud.  To view the images later, you must travel to the golden barley fields of southern Switzerland and meditate.  Make sure you go during the golden hours for maximum DR.

I believe he meant that if the $300-$800 price of an iPhone 5 is the only thing holding you back from the 1dx, then either of those cameras would more than cover the price of the iPhone. As in, "I had $6.5k for a 1DX, but I had to buy an iPhone and now only have $6k and can't get the 1DX for a while"
