of course the 1dx doesn't have a battery grip. Believe me, I've had one in my hands for about half an hour last monday .
I could probably have managed to put a cf card in (had one with me) and take some pictures on it since no one was around, but hey, who cares .
the 24-70 was there too. Nice lens.
unless the 1Dx is a huge camera, this one i held did. or a battery pack, same thing. whatever im sleep deprived and have had a really long day.
attached to a grip? You sure? You sure it wasn't just the shape of the camera?
Did you get to shoot with it?
im pretty sure it was, sure it had a battery pack on it. it was bigger than my 7d. i havent held a 1D series camera so maybe it was the camera? i dunno.
the availability for the camera and the new 24-70, 24 and 28 lenses (for australia) were;
1Dx and 24-70mm 2.8 II - April
24mm IS and 28mm IS - June
maybe some 5d replacement news
as well? pretty vague though. when asked about the new 5d the canon rep replied "i dont know when there will be a new 5D" i was expecting her to say 5dmkiii, so maybe there will be a 'split' of the 5d line.
i wanted to open up the sides panel to see the dual card slots but had very limited time. she (Canon rep) told us not to put a card in. it's very rugged and weather sealed. i glanced over the buttons, button layout has a nice aesthetic look to it. if i recall properly (my memory is fuzzy) its like the 7d's layour a bit, with the button options on the side. it's lighter than what i expected. the woman was there for less than 30 mins, she had a meeting with the national newspaper, most likely going to be interviewed about the camera.i wont post the pic til tomorrow coz i've got a few more important things to do
. i think i have to mms someone, get them to email me the pic so i can download the pic from my ipad and upload it here. my old school literally had no memory didnt have my P&S with me so i had to delete some stuff on my phone to take 1 pic. might have to use PS to brighten up the pic so you can see the "x" properly.
