One such person did an unboxing video of the camera. I had nothing to do with the orientation of the camera.
Canon EOS-1D X Unboxing
1st Thanks to the poster for putting up the video. It is great to start seeing the 1Dx in peoples hands.2nd The poster has said future videos will be horizontal. He is new to posting videos online.3rd This video reminded me of another video put together by a Canadian Comedy troupe. It is pretty funny and not meant to hurt anyone's feelings. :-)
Lucky him. Who cares how it was shot. I wish I could be unboxing the 1D X. He says he left a deposit in April. I preordered mineOn march 16. I hope mine shows up soon!
