Summary: I was so darn excited to get this camera! In fact, I still want to love it because it handles like no other on the market, but after about 3 months of using it, i ran into a very serious problem. Here i was in Disneyland with my family and I have my brand new camera when all of a sudden it just looses power! I take the battery out and put it back in a few times and I get it to work a few more times before it just all out dies on me.
Summary: I managed to find a low use used copy. It's not as flashy as the latest and greatest models, but it can help create first rate images. There is more to "megapixels" than a number. It is very easy to make 13" x 19" prints from this camera without additional processing. If the image is good in camera, it will be good in print. Files respond well to the free Canon DPP software.
Great camera. The only downside Is the shutter noise

Summary: Great camera. The only downside Is the shutter noise. Canon really need to fix this issue. My 5d mkIII a is not as loud as this monster. Don't get me wrong I love it. I just wish it was a bit on the quieter side.
Summary: I received this camera and a 24-70 mm/F2.8 II lens as birthday gifts a couple weeks ago. The camera looks cool and awesome. Since I had been taking photos with point-and-shoot cameras (my most recent one is Canon G12), this 1DX is a lot complicated for me to handle. I used it a few times on P-mode to take pictures of my dog in the dog park; the pictures look awesome. Nevertheless, I still need to finish reading the instruction manual to learn all the features.
Summary: There was a question about weather this camera is good for beginners or not. There was the comment I did not like. The comment was that you should buy a rable for beginner with automatic settings. I totally disagree. With an automatic camera you will never learn photography. The computer gets in the way of that. My suggestion if you are a beginner and have the money this is perfect for you.
Don't let the 18 MP or price dissuade you from giving this body serious consideration

Summary: This is the best digital SLR camera in production right now. We finally have a full frame high frame rate camera that has excellent dynamic range, great resolution, and a compact flash card write buffer and write speed capability that has never been exceeded in my use of this body. The price of this camera body is higher than the other camera bodies for sale by Canon today. I think the questions I can answer in this review are: 1. How good is this camera in practice? 2.
Summary: I have gone from the Canon Rebel and as I've grown as a photographer not only bought newer models but more professional models. Now I shoot with the 1DX and 5DIII. The 1DX is the most fun, fastest and best photo tool that I've ever owned. The other reviews talk about different details, but everything about this camera is better than any other camera that I've ever owned. There are a few advantages to other cameras (the high megapixels of the D800, etc.
