Canon EOS-1D X Hitting Retailers
« on: June 21, 2012, 10:07:45 AM »
Looking good!
The EOS-1D X is showing up in small numbers in Singapore. I have also heard it will appear in more stores in Asia this week. I have yet to hear anything about USA, Europe or Canada stock allocation.

Below are a couple of shots from a some lucky person.

Preorder the Canon EOS-1D X at B&H | Adorama | Amazon

If any of you get feedback about when various vendors will begin shipping in the U.S., please post it here.

One member posted in another thread saying that he spoke with a person at Adorama who stated they would have stock by the end of this month, and the first customers would have it by the first week in July. 

Any other confirmation or insight into when B&H, Adorama, and/or Amazon will begin shipping woudl be appreciated. I was one of the first to pre-order through Amazon, so I will likely have to guage their probable shipping date off what I learn about B&H, Adorama and others in the U.S.

I spoke to Amazon concierge and they have no idea when the stock will arrive. OneCall representative gave a 30 day period but they have a very very short waitlist.

Amazon's customer service people are NEVER any help in these situations. I have called repeatedly in the past about when a new product, which has already been released, will ship, and they never have any insight. Other members have posted saying that they have no actual visibility into when they will receive NEW inventory, and my experience with them confirms this. They just say, "when we get it in stock, we'll email you to let you know."  Invariably, the product actually ships to me before customer service even knows they have it in stock. So, I have stopped wasting my time calling them.

Experience has proven that Amazon receives brand new (just released) cameras and ships them on the same day as, or within a day of, when the other major camera stores like B&H and Adorama receive and ship their first camaras. Which is why I'm so interested in what people are hearing from those other stores.

I am sorry, but we do not have that camera in stock yet.
There must be an error on Canons website.

Looks the almost same as my 1D MK IV except for the model number.  I have never had a new 1 series body come in a white box.

The 1 series had those nice black boxes.  They were classy looking.

I pre-ordered mine on Amazon too about 3 weeks ago. When I did, one of their concierge guys emailed me and I asked them the release date. This was their response:

I wanted to let you know we haven't received a release date yet from Canon for the Canon EOS-1D X 18.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera. I'm sorry the camera probably won't be available until after your cousin's wedding. This is just speculation, however my best guess it this camera will be released sometime after July possibly later.

Canon - 1, Amazon concierge - 0!

Complete noob here....

But what is it on this 1D-X that makes it so much more $$$ than the recently released 5D3?

I see it has less MP, and I know that MP in this case, isn't likely much of an important factor...but, does having less give it more clarity in low light situations?

I believe I've read that it shoots more fps....but aside from this...what makes this camera better and worth more than the 5D3?

Thanks in advance,

cayenne
