hi Sycotek,


congratulations, as far as I know, you are the first one in Perth, so I hope I get mine soon.

Where did you get your's?

I have ordered mine from Camera Electronic in Northbridge, Perth

Ben
1DX, 7D and lots of gear

Just got back from Japan, checked a couple retailers in Japan and Osaka. They had a spot ready for the 1Dx but they chuckled when I asked about availability. I wasnt at all surprised since europe is top priority, glad to see some showing up in various places. The new primes were in stock except the 40mm pancake had a waiting list. I played with the D4 for a little while but it just made me glad to be a Canon shooter. I don't like the ergonomics of Nikons and will continue to wait patiently for the 1DX. This is going to be a camera that I plan to hang on to for at least 5 years so I want mine to be perfect rather than rushed to the market.

Just picked mine up in Perth - waiting for batteries to charge!!!

Congrats! Don't you just hate getting a new gadget like a phone or something as awesome as the 1D X, only to have to wait for the battery to charge!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the new camera. What will you be using it for?

Got mine from the Guys at PRA - surprisingly the batteries weren't 250+ only 165 - cant complain!

Using it as my sport/event/work camera lol - covers everything really.

Seeing how unimpressed i was with the 5D3 i was expecting a failure. But I'm having a hard time faulting the unit. Even at iso 51K with no NR

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/33440790/AJ3P0180.jpg iso 51200, 1/400 (cause i can) 200mm at f4 (2.8 L II if you are wondering) 18MB warning. Noise is workable and pleasant, heaps of detail - OH forgot! NO NR in-body or in post!

Woah, that's a big picture, but just shows what it can do! Hope all those cold tablets aren't yours and if they are - hope you get better soon!

Will you be posting some low ISO RAWs as well?

Have fun with your new camera!
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Lol well i did put 18MB warning :P

GF is the sick one :/

Will try and put it through its paces over the next few days - have too much work on to actually learn it properly but hey it really isnt that much different to driving a 7D

Yeah it was around then, I guess I must have been first on the list. :)

Won't be able to give it a proper test out until Friday, but I'm pretty keen to get it set up with some custom settings. I've been looking forward to going back to a 1 series body after a good deal of time with the 5D II and 7D most recently. My last 1 series was the 1D II N, which I go back to on occasion due to the rugged build and still admirable IQ.

coming from an 'expansion af' only when using ai servo on the 7D i was tempted to use expansion on the 1DX but it doesn't seem to use ITR so im trying to learn to use 'all points on' and 'zone af' (which both use ITR)

The new AI servo III 'all points on' feels like the love-child of 7D expansion with the freedom and fail-safe of all points. Don't knock it till you try it! Not a fan of zone af (as yet) but case 4 with -1 to focus change (top option) works well for me for now.

oh and dont freak out too much about the read noise on the rear lcd (page 147 states that NR isn't as effective on rear lcd when shooting raw but takes effect when processed on pc) and its true.

only had it for 24 hours and its blown my mind

focuses from standby to lock faster then i can put my finger on the shutter (af-on user) and racks off two frames faster then i can pull my finger off the shutter. It's really is a beast!

extremely jealous mate, they told me there's only 40 shipped into the country and each pro dealer has 1, considering georges appears to be the cheapest in aust to sell it you're a very lucky man!

let us know how the camera's like asap! it will definitely be better than the 1D IIn by far (i am using 1ds3 and 1d4, really hoping i can get my hands on one before the 12th)
