Canon EOS-1D X Availability [CR3]
« on: June 09, 2012, 09:29:38 AM »
Coming in July…. sort of
Canon Canada has started to confirm the preorder lists from retailers for the EOS-1D X. Retailers have to prove the people buying the camera are CPS members, and have prepaid for the camera. If the camera is needed for the Olympics, it appears you’re moved to the front of the line. I don’t know if any other countries are going to experience the same limitations with the initial shipment of cameras.

Canon Canada expects a very small number of cameras in July, and that should be the same across the globe.

It still looks like August, and more likely September, is when we’ll see larger quantities of the 1D X.

Let's just call it October and make it an even year since the original announcement of the camera.  One full trip around the sun.

Though I still look forward to the 1DX, I am interested to see if any of the cameras announced between now and when it actually ships end up looking better to me because an entire development cycle for most companies will have gone by.

Not a pro. Maybe you either. What if many more people take your route? + Dx could stay on the shleves after pro's are supplied...don't know.

I live in Texas and just heard a Cajun (somebody from Louisiana) talking about the 1DX pre-order he made with Canon .... he said; "First you tell me April, then you tell me May, then you tell me June .... now I know ju lie!".

This is where the rumor of "July" started.  :o

I do wonder how this will play out in the US - I know they've bumped CPS members to the front of the queue in the UK as well (that news hit a few months ago), but I haven't had any inquiries here in the US yet.

Given that I am a platinum CPS member, well I have to admit I hope that'll apply here as well

I will go to Hong Kong on July and I will try to renew my gear but I am afraid that will be too soon to find the 1Dx there... :-(
Meanwhile... I suppose that this question has been done before, but...
For fashion, wedding and portrait (And maybe some landscapes on my trips) Do you think that 1DX is a really better choice than the 5D Mark III?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

If you don't know the answer to that, then the 5D Mark III is the far better choice :)

Hi Chabotc,
I know the different specification for both cameras. For may personal use, I think the speed shooter and the "sports" focusing system is not a reason to spend close to double if I am really don't get spacial benefits for my job. In othe hand the dedicated DIGI4 for the metering system and the ISO range looks incredible better than in the 5D Mark III.

Also the number of life shoots (I think 150.000 VS 400.000) of course!

I am asking because I really want that someone that know more than me give me a tip. Sorry if the question is very stupid, but I never had a 1D, only I had the 5D and the 5D Mark II and I am looking advices for other colleagues.

Thanks in any case for your fast response!

Oh wow! You are such a smart___ why don't you enlighten us? I mean, if you answer like that you might be a genius with the camera. You are the kind of people who shouldn't be allowed in forums.

Gracias nikkito. Algunas personas piensan que diciendo ese tipo de frases son superiores al resto :-)

In anycase, if my budget is enough finally I will buy the 1D x. But also want new lens, the new flash... :-D Why everything is soooooo expensive? lol

No one knows what Canon is doing or why it is taking so long to bring this camera to market. I was extremely excited camera and actually have two on order, but it has taken so long that I really don't care anymore. For the time being, my 5D Mark III is fulfilling all of my needs and the 1DX will get here whenever it gets here.
Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

However I am now somewhat concerned that the camera is going to hit the streets almost a year after it was announced, that's a heck of along time in development terms and you have to wonder how long it will be before a mark ii of this camera is announced given the amount of delay there's been.

Another 4 years.
