Canon EOS-1D X Manual Posted
« on: June 11, 2012, 11:59:10 PM »
Some reading….
The manual for the upcoming Canon EOS-1D X was posted online today.

We’ve heard to expect some shipments in late June & July, with preferential treatment given to the Olympic photographers. The rest of us should see 1D X’s in August and September.

Hi,
    Look like no AF at F/8 for 1Dx (Page 81)... :(

    Have a nice day.

This has been a serious disaster for Canon..PR I mean. I am can CPS member and I am so locked in with tons of Canon lens. Even then I am seriously thinking of switching. I browsed today for D4 ..but couldn't find that one either.

Thank you for the manual.

It will be nice to read the " Wired lan instruction manual"

Damn. That's the only reason why I clicked to read it, to see if there was anything about f/8.
But nope, you're right, f/5.6 it is for this generation...
Too much gear, too little space.

I know that I'm very selfish, I'm sorry, but personally since 99% of my shots are at f2.8 & since the reason they left out f8.0 to improve operation wide open, I'm very happy that it is missing.

Thanks for the link to the manual.   :)

+ 1 Many thanks for the manual. Now I can read it before my new camera finally arrives.  ;D This negates the effect that I would rather be shooting with the camera than reading the manual once I have finally got it.

Surprisingly "Group E" AF (61 points) will function with the EF-400mm f/2.8 + 2x extender (effectively f/5.6) whereas the EF-800mm f/5.6 can only use "Group F" AF  (47 points).

This is weird - these two combinations should be equivalent AF-wise - or am I missing something ?

Looks like owners of the 800mm will be crippled on top of the loss of f/8 AF...

The AF display was what got me, has anyone noticed that it says it illuminates in low light automatically so you can see what you're shooting.

To me that's what they must of been addressing.

Something we'll hopefully see occur in the Mark III as well.

I 'believe' this is already in the 5D3?

Well let's wait and have a good look at the camera before calling it a serious PR disaster.
It could quite possibly be a high point in Canon history.
But switch to Nikon by all means if you're sure that would serve your business better in the long run.

Just because the manual says something doesn't mean it's true! My 5D3 will focus at f8 (300mm f2.8 IS and stacked Kenko 1.4x and 2x convertors). I assume the 1D X focus system is the same.

Mind you, maybe Canon's teleconvertors won't work when stacked.
