1 thing that should be added or CHANGED about the 1 D X or tweak to a current awesome feature.


I would make the Focus confirm flash red or addressable color.

I'd like 2-3 more C# settings.

Plus I would like when you assign to the dof preview button the function to change from servo to one shot and viceversa, that once you push the button the af mode switches instead of having to keep that button pressed.

f/8 lens autofocusing similar to the D4 and D800.

I know thats odd no F8 on a new sexy camera, where with a 3rd party extender it WORKS F8 AF.

1.
I would like the option to switch around the order of the main menu's, like have the AF-tab next to My Menu, and the possibllity to have one more My Menu, or being able to add a few more items to the one there is.

2.
I would like red Af-points.

3.
The old 1d4 iso button/placement (although no biggie)

4.
The same lowlight AF ability of the 5d2.

5. I find reaching the M.fn and dof-preview buttons kind of hard, they should be bigger or closer to the grip for my liking.

6.
More options to customize buttons. (Why can't I set every button to whatever?)

7.
Support for the EC-S focusing screen. Seeing the dof and focus is a great aid and truly missed from the 5d2.


All of this minus the red-af point wish, is nitpicking. I must say this camera, it's just f@@@ing EPIC!! I have used almost all Canon bodies since the 1ds2 (owned or used) and this is so near perfect it's ridicolous. Like no other Canon before I can catch moments that are completely out of the question for what can be done with AF, and it just does it.

How about writing to the cf cards in a just in case method - even numbered shots to slot A, odd numbered shots to slot B?

Not sure everyone would find this useful, but a friend's camera has the ability to set minimum shutter speed as a function of focal length (e.g., 1/f). Seems like a big benefit for non-IS lenses. Though, this could just be my lack of skill :)

We all did.

The thing I mean isn't about tracking a subject in lowish light, because the 1d X pretty much destroys everything else there. But in VERY low light (or very low contrast) the 5d2 snaps on and locks focus where the 1d X just hunts and gives in. It's also a problem (just experienced it the other day) that when shooting flash in one shot and trying to lock with AF-assist from the 580 ex II it takes forever to focus. And that wasn't even close to low light... A big problem as it was in a studio setting and I was trying to shoot some white background shots of my kids, and they would just sit and stare at me as I'm trying so hard to get focus, and when I did, they were already fed up and halfway upstairs...

I wish that the AF points in the VF would not go to sleep after only 7-8 seconds.  I'm still finding it very annoying that I have to first press AF-on or a half-shutter press, prior to moving the points with the multi-controller, in order to compose quick action shots.  >:(

The 1DX does have better low light AF. Just turn the flash IR assist off.

The only thing that I would change is a true silent shutter like the 5D3.

£5000 camera, no proper silent shutter, truly WTF.

It won't lock where the 5d2 does, so, no. I have tried Ai servo, One shot with and without flash. But WHEN the 1d X locks it does track way better and will also not lock unless it is in fact in focus, whereas the 5d2 locks and it can be oof. But in the lowest of light, the 5d2 IS better to lock.

I very much agree with you on the Silent Shutter, the 5d3 is ACTUALLY very useful, whereas the 1d X is just, huh? is that silent?!

I wouldn't mind being able to add more menu options to "My Menu."  It seems a bit limited, considering all of the features of the camera!
