That was actually pretty shockingly uninformative.

Now, now, play nice. After all it was posted in the Canon Museum. If you want excitingly new (and suspect) information, you'll have to wait until Canon marketing releases their white paper - "Alien technology, Area 51, and the 1D X: The Truth is Out There."

LAME!

Still won't say...even in this "official" entry....1) what the weight is 2) how many shots a fully charged battery can take and 3) how many shots the buffer can handle

seriously Canon?! The camera is manufactured by now and on a boat crossing the Pacific. you KNOW these performance numbers, publish them!

You guys are being a bit hard on Canon.  Yes, we're all closet gear heads (which I like to think isn't mutually exclusive with being a good photographer) and have been following every development of the 1D X story, but not everyone is and Canon's technical report is a good summary of the camera's performance and design objectives.

Is it?  Or is the fact that the battery is not yet final the reason for the reported/rumored delay in availibility - initially March, now April?

I'd *really* like to know the video bit-rates in both I-frame and IBP GOP.

And how much reduced is the moire and aliasing?

So Canon is also now owned by Dell?   Oh no!   :o


Thanks for the heads-up.  Yeah, I want to see RAW images too!  Maybe on Feb 7?
