The shadows and metering really seem to be shinning on these pictures.  Could read if they were processed or straight out of camera, but still very impressive...

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting!  Silent shooting isn't, but at least the buffer seems pretty deep for continuous shooting...

The internal buffer is a spec that may changed once the camera is in production. Canon could add 50% or double the memory used for buffering the images quite easily... Without having to reprogram the firmware or change the camera design.

I hope they go for small updates like this during the +8 months delay...

With not-state-of-the-art Sandisk 60 MB/s I was able to capture 41 RAW files (before slow down) and unlimited JPGs (Large, quality 8 ). To be honest, after 15 seconds of continuous JPG shooting I stopped bored with 187 pictures on the card :)

Nice, thanks for the info!  With my Extreme Pro 90 MB/s cards, it might be even a little higher...

Thanks for the info indeed.  I use the same card as you.  This will be more then enought for my application.  If i dont get the shot i want after 187 clics then i will have to assume the problem is with the one holding the camera...me!!!

Thanks again.

Thanks!

ISO3200 without any NR looks better than my 5dii WITH NR :) ISO5000 looked really good quality too, especially with some NR.

The files seemed to hold up really well to developing (the colours are still accurate and the sharpness is great!) - and the focussing must have been working hard to get those indoor shots in focus!

ISO6400 seemed similar to ISO3200 on my 5dii, which is what I was expecting..

Very impressed. IQ looks like it's a real step up from my 5dii.

So this would suggest little change from the mkiii from iso perspective.  Did you have a chance to shoot with 5d mkiii by curiousity?

Yes, I have both and have tried them side by side at the "small" soccer match. AF on 5D III is excellent too. Image quality comparison is something I don't want to comment yet :)

You lucky devil, how did you land this?  Is it a production one or did you get a pre-production unit?  Why not post some raw file if you can?  Dont tease us like this!

 :P

Got it from local Canon (1D IV on the right is my own), 1DX is a preproduction unit. Sample photos (jpgs from raws in Camera Raw) posted on my website (see link above).

can you post an ISO100 black frame or even just any ISO100 frame (in RAW), wanna see if they upped the DR on this sensor at all

My current view was the 5diii was 2/3rd stop better than the 5dii and the 1dx was 1/2 stop better than the 5diii.

This is just seeing other random files around the place...

The 1dx files do seem ... crisper somehow. I'd say there was a difference between the two cameras.

No, I returned it yesterday.

Thanks!  It would make sense to see an IQ improvement with the 1DX but from looking at the various sample appearing, i see that the improvement is not just on iso performance per say which might be minimal but on other aspect like shadow rendition, metering, etc...

...and crisper is always good!

Now, i still need to wait another 2 months to get mine!   :-[
