Low vibration mode?? Is that a dedicated mirror lock up button at long last?
This feature means that it will be a good camera for macro photography; the 5D mkII already has very low vibration in silent live view mode. This is very important when shotting macro well above 1:1

no mention of built in radio triggers... Sounds awesome though!

how would the multiple exposures and HDR thing work in practice? Take them all at the same time? with one click?

Also no mention of the headphone jack in the connectivity.

So if the native ISO is 2 stops higher then the D800s, what do we think this means in practice?
really? what do you think it means? we can take cleaner pictures is lower light.

If this list is even close to accurate, would like to congratulate Canon on focusing on IQ and delivering what looks to be a killer camera body.  I still may be months to a year away from purchasing, but this does likely seem like a body I will own in the next 6 - 18 months, with the off possibility that their high MP might be a little more interesting...

So far, this is a very compelling camera to me, and seems to address my want list very very well

How about "AF point-linked spot metering" ??
I really hope they don't cripple this again!!

If they are charging that much, that better be the best metering system possible/ever seen.

I just played with 600d and metering sucks BIG TIME. It misses up to 1.5 stops no matter which settings you use. That's shameful.

So, if they plan on selling any... better get:

WIRELESS FILE TRANSFER that works with LR3+ and Capture One (optional is fine)

REALLY FAST FLASH SYNC, and I mean 1/500+

AUTOFOCUS ON F8 lenses

GOOD SUBJECT TRACKING AUTOFOCUS

ACCURATE METERING WITH PLENTY OF OPTIONS, AND I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH

BIG VIEWFINDER

BETTER WEATHER SEALING

BIGGER HISTOGRAM (sometimes I just want to look at the histogram, not the image itself)

SCREEN RESOLUTION THAT MATCHES THE SCALE OF THE FILE (NO MORE MENUS UP AND DOWN)

P.S. They really should have dumped that silly SD card slot.

Whoa whoa whoa... let's slow down.

I'm not convinced this is an accurate (or at least complete) spec list. We can see from the picture of the top that there's an SD card slot, but that isn't mentioned in the specs.

The bit that says "Dual card slots (CF & SD)" didn't give it away?

you want us honestly to believe the 600D is mettering 1.5 stops off on average motivs?
please tell us more bulls h i t.

my advice.... take a good look in the manual or let someone who knows what he is doing check the 600D.

the metering system from the 600D is as good as the rest in that class of cameras.

I'd guess he means what do you think it will mean to ISO performance at the settings the D800 and the 5D mk3 will share.

It's a smaller 1Ds3 with video.

I did have 2 x 1Dx's pre ordered, now it's just 1.

How good does the IQ of the 1Dx need to be to make it worth taking over a cheaper, lighter, higher MP body?

Dual card slots and it can focus*.

Any ifo on the following two sections?

a.) weather sealing, and
b.) dynamic range in f stops?

"Improved durability & water and dust resistance"

is all that Ted's website lists about weather sealing. no known f stops for DR.

I'm not convinced this is an accurate (or at least complete) spec list. We can see from the picture of the top that there's an SD card slot, but that isn't mentioned in the specs.

from the Ted's Camera website, the source of the specs:

"Dual card slots (CF & SD)"

and no, there is no RAW movie format AFAIK. looks like JPEG was just forgotten on the list of formats.

Anybody noted the mention INTELLIGENT viewfinder?
THIS is the groundbreaking feature that will shake the industry that they were talking about.
I know that this is not a inedited technology but I bet that i will have nothing to do with what have been done in the past!!
The optical TTL focus IS the feature that will hurt Nikon the most.
Buy shares now....

yes also noted, but havenĀ“t a ryme on this

my advice.... take a good look in the manual or let someone who knows what he is doing check the 600D.

Not in all pictures, I haven't said that. In some situations, it just happens to be all the situations that would give you good shots. So, I have to turn on the Live view, set the exposure according to the histogram, then go back to the viewfinder and shoot.

Both spot and partial are tragic on that thing.
