If they allowed pre-orders now, I would do it in the blink of an eye. The original 5dsr is such a great camera, and the improvements I see in the 1dx2 would make it even better, closer to perfection.
I'm right there with you Jopa. I sold my two D810's after a couple week demo from Canon on the 5DS & SR, and bought two SR's. Shortly after that I upgraded my 1DX's to the series II model , thinking I'd shoot the SR's for architecture and the XII's for my faster aviation work. Turns out, because I love the file size and the cameras are so capable, I shoot 90% of my stuff with the 5DSR's. Having 144MB files to tweak will get one spoiled in a hurry.
Very impressive shot! Wondering where you have to be to take this one?
I apologize for the delay in my response to your question. I do a great deal of "air to air" photography assignments. My photo platforms vary, depending upon the subject aircraft, speed of the subject, budget and several other considerations. The image you asked about was taken from a Beechcraft A36 with the double side passenger doors removed. The A36 is a wonderfully capable photo platform and can fly at about 160 knots in the open configuration. Some of my subject aircraft are falling out of the sky at that speed so we go with aircraft like the WWII North American B25 Bomber which can fly at slightly faster speeds for limited duration, or military fighter jets where speed and performance is virtually unlimited.
That is a spectacular shot of Skip Stewart and Prometheus! He always puts on a great show:)
