Based on this, I remember from the 1DX announcement that they marketed its "native ISO" as 51,000. Does this mean Canon feels ISO 51,000 has acceptable low noise level on the 1DX...and this would compared to say ISO 6400 on a 5D mkII?
I cant wait to see real test review for this machine...
Actually, 51k on the 1DX is incredibly better at 51k than a 5D2 is at 6400. I think you would have to push to 104k to get the same result - from what i remembered of my play with one in October.
I kid you not, i was shown a print of a tube depot with the trains stabled overnight - i have similar shots taken on 100asa film - and that required tripod and seconds worth of exposure. This one at 51k was done at a hand held speed. As said before, i appreciate that Canon give this pic the treatment - but the simple fact is, it shows what it can do at 51k!
I sure hope you are right Picsfor! I cant wait to see this for myself.
