Canon EOS-1D X AF Guidebook Updated

New Reading
While I find manuals pretty dry reading without the camera in my hand, this one is pretty interesting if you’re into the tweaking of AF systems.

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.

Canon EOS-1D X Availability [CR3]

Coming in July…. sort of
Canon Canada has started to confirm the preorder lists from retailers for the EOS-1D X. Retailers have to prove the people buying the camera are CPS members, and have prepaid for the camera. If the camera is needed for the Olympics, it appears you’re moved to the front of the line. I don’t know if any other countries are going to experience the same limitations with the initial shipment of cameras.

Canon Canada expects a very small number of cameras in July, and that should be the same across the globe.

It still looks like August, and more likely September, is when we’ll see larger quantities of the 1D X.

A bit more info
The post from a couple of days ago sparked a lot of conversation. For the most part, most things were confirmed. The current cameras out there are not production models and will be returned to Canon when the production cameras hit the marketplace.

A few did mention that the end of June beginning of July is still the target date, but the quantity will be very small. I’m told a few sports photographers will be allocated the 1D X first. Retail availability in July was mentioned as being “optimistic”. August or September may be the months when big stock numbers hit the marketplace.
