Maybe I can just tape a magnifying glass to the front or something?

Your 1D X came with a body cap.  Take it off, drill a small hole (slightly less than 1mm in diameter, a 1/32" drill bit would work) right through the first n in Canon, then put it back on.  You'll be good to go.

Of course, you won't be the first to do that with a 1-series body.   ;)

@ Neuro. You need to be very careful when you do this, otherwise, you might create "light leak"  ;D
Yep, and I must have missed the "take it off" part because now I have a big hole in my mirror as well.  Talk about a light leak :'(

The extra hole will allow for some truly amazing and creative 'artistic' effects !
Naw, a hole in the mirror won't show in photos.
It might whistle when the mirror flips up, that'd be different.
 
 
 
 
.

Now the hole in the sensor, on the other hand....

Now that can be a problem especially as there are only 18mp to start off with!  If on the other hand, it had 36mp surely the neighboring pixels will compensate for the pixels in the hole.

I thought I had finally sorted out all of my issues on Saturday during a Kentucky Derby party.  The camera felt light, familiar, and everything seemed to work.  Then my wife asked why I wasn't using my "new camera" and I realized that I was holding my 5DIII, which explained my lapse in judgement.  The next morning, I didn't find any photos on my 5DIII or 1D X, however, and it was then that I realized that several mint juleps + the EOS M = the greatest camera in the world.

This thread is the best read! But somehow I find that I have to clean my monitor afterwards - one shouldn't laugh violently down into a hot cup of coffee just when sitting down in front of the screen. *waves fist and clears screen all at the same time*

Thanks!  We try to be funny around here sometimes, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.  Sorry to hear about your monitor, though ;)

Make sure to re calibrate your monitor after your accident.

See, now, if you'd just spent the extra $2,000 for an L-quality, weather-sealed monitor....

You are way off, way way off, try $40,000.

Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

Still not weather-sealed, I don't think, but these are.  Still, I'm low by a few hundred bucks.

That said, there's some disagreement about whether they are L-quality.  :D

More true than you think....... 
Yesterday I got my new 1Dx (also have a 5D3), went out for the ultimate test. Fired away, looked great on the LCD...
Came home, got them into Lightroom, hm.... this is not good at all - these 4MB loss in pixels - do they really give such shitty pictures....
Bad DR, detail .....  wtf .....  big waste of money......

Then I saw the camera was on Jpeg ..........   

Today the sun shines again .....
