Canon EOS-1D X Availability

Canon EOS-1D X Availability

We need more!
Amazon has begun shipping the Canon EOS-1D X
I’m being told by a lot of people. Another big shipment to Amazon is expected in the near future. As far as I know, they haven’t yet reached the end of their preorder list.

The best retailer to keep an eye on if you haven’t preordered yet, is probably Norman Camera. They have twice had the camera available and in stock. A new shipment is expected soon. Camera Canada may also be at or near the end of their preorder list.

Niether B&H Photo or Adorama has updated me about the length of their preorder lists or when they expect their next shipment.

Both LensRentals.com and LensRentalsCanada.com have the EOS-1D X in stock and available for rent.

My Canon EOS-1D X Has Arrived!

Finally eh?
My Canon EOS-1D X has finally arrived! I think I actually preordered it before it was announced.

First Impressions?
Not many yet. I have touched this camera countless times at various photography trade shows, so nothing is really new. It is really nice to actually be able to put a card into one of the slots and save some images.

I will be using this camera pretty hard for the next little while and will let you know what I think.

Availability in the United States should come on Thursday or Friday, I’ve confirmed this with B&H.

Canon EOS-1D X Availability in North America

They’re coming!
We have unconfirmed reports that a few retailers in the US and Canada will be receiving their initial Canon EOS-1D X shipments this week.

We have reports they’ve shown up already in Montreal, Canada. I expect to get mine some time this week.

B&H Photo
We can’t confirm, but we’ve heard B&H Photo has told preorder customers that they expect a shipment this week. The July 4, 2012 holiday may disrupt some shipping though.

Canon EOS-1D X Review

Canon EOS-1D X Review

A first review
Martin Bailey, a Tokyo based photographer has posted a pretty extensive review of the Canon EOS-1D X. You can read or listen to his podcast as he talks about his initial impressions of Canon’s new flagship.

From the review

OK, so these are the main points that I’ve come across so far. I can live with the resolution for the frame-rate and high ISO performance trade-off . I was expecting a larger leap forward in the AI Servo tracking performance, but I’m very happy with the accuracy of the AI Servo focusing when it locks on. For my cormorant tests I was working in very high contrast conditions, and with flowing water in the background, which has always been very tricky. Considering this, it performed OK, though I had hoped for a little more.

Canon EOS-1D X Hitting Retailers

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.

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.
