Cps gave me a 1dx and falling in love
« on: May 17, 2014, 11:55:50 PM »
Just an awesome camera. Iso is a stop better. Being able to control iso, shutter and aperture values so it does not drop below them is awesome. The burst af is just amazing, caught more expressions that i feel I would normally miss since its so fast.

Do not like on/off switch, drive and a few buttons are different from 5d3 so just need to get used to it.
Meter is on right in VF and used to bottom.

But it hustles and feels like I have no excuse at this point with this beast. Also the colors seem a little nicer or its in my head.

Tomorrow I am going to use the 5d3 and compare raw files and hopefully I should now. Just so tempting.

1Dx RAW files are better.  Don't know why.  I had a 1Dx and a 5D3 and sold the 5D3 and got another 1Dx.  You'll love it.

Ditto!  I have a 1DX infatuation... is there a support group for that yet? :)

Gotta look at the images but the af, shutter lag and burst was just a joy and it was like the first time I did a burst of shots in my first dslr. Will let you know how the final images came out.

You have been smitten - there is no cure - just buy a 1DX and worry about the consequences later!

I don't think so.  Anyone I know who has shot with the 1Dx has the same problem and is no longer available to help others.

+1, I've tried several body/body combos like the 5DII and 7D, but none of them come close to my 1D X/5DIII pair.  They are a perfect match 8)

It's a "fantasy" for many of us(including myself) to own this combo or just a 1D X. Maybe one day gents...  ;)

wouldn't a 1Dx/1Dx be the perfect match? :)

I like being able to "remove" the grip from my 1D X every now and then, so the 5DIII works better at that :-), and I LOVE the silent shutter.  In all other ways, the 1D X wins hands down.
