Preproduction Canon EOS-1D X Exists!
« on: June 01, 2012, 11:07:22 AM »
Pretty boxes
Here’s a picture of some preproduction Canon EOS-1D X cameras arriving for fun times.

This image comes from a forum post on clubsnap and the poster mentions they’ll have to give them back when the production units come. They also won’t be allowed to post images from the camera on the web.

1dx, 2dx, 3dx & more!

thanks CCJ

What good is this?  You can take photos for upcoming events, but you can't post them anywhere?  What if by some wild chance someone actually took a good photo?  Then what would you do?

I still believe (and pray) that these cameras are for the photographers to get used to the camera's settings before shooting at the big events with the actual production camera. So if Canon tells a photographer you can use the pre-production unit to "train" for the olympics but you can't post any photos, it is the photographer's own fault if he shoots a winner with the wrong camera before the olympics. I think Canon is doing everything they can to have the final product in the hands of these photographers that are getting pre-production units, and this is their way of saying we do actually care...

Maybe???  I'm thinking the photographers just have to agree to blank out the exif info.  For example:

He also has done work for Canon recently: http://bildpresse2010.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/canon-road-show-2012-in-munchen-mit-gero-breloer/

Maybe...

This is more about the new 600EX-RT, but he is using a 1DX.

Stupid question here.....why are these "pre-production" models in (at least what looks like) retail boxes and why so many? Wouldn't pre-production models just come in old (1dmk4 or 1dsmk3) boxes? Why waist time in making fancy boxes? Other photogs like Frits van Eldik that got pre-production models, just had the canon rep drop it off at their studio....just curious..

why so many I have no idea, finished boxes... why Not? The cameras might be ready for final rollout and their shape and size aren't gonna be changed anyway, so the packaging 's been done, the rest may just be firmware or fine tuning which will not change the body size and shape.
