The magic of 1dx 12 fps
« on: May 12, 2014, 03:52:03 AM »
1dx's 12 fps make certain shots a possibility which other camera's would struggle to get.

Please post any such photos you may have.

Here is one of mine. There were 3 of us on the ground with 1dx, 5d3 and 7d. But only the 1dx got this photo...

Very cool Sanj!

I have posted a couple of these willow tit images on other threads, but this is one where 12 fps came in handy. I wanted the bird in the air, just after it jumps off, with his legs still stretch behind and that first go with the wings.

It builds a nest in the trunk and flies off with the mass it carves out. From the moment I could spot its head in the opening in the trunk, until it was gone on the right side, was 3 frames of head-airborne-tail. With the 5DIII it would have been a tremendous struggle to nail these at that exact time in the air.

Good time not to have a macro lens!

Nice shot.... Perfect timing!

Lovely photo. I know it is tough to get these shots. Even with 12fps many times I just get a tail in frame!

Yep. Let me try to find a photo of three of us on ground. If I find it I will post..

And it is not perfect timing. Both the photographer and subject were spraying…. :)

sanj, what a cool thread and thanks for kicking it off with such an awesome photo!  I'm still a new owner and haven't snagged any shots like this yet, but you and the other contributors certainly have me inspired.  Hopefully I'll have something to share in the future...

sanj,
