Great camera. The only downside Is the shutter noise
11 August 2014
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 own the Canon EOS1D-X, the Canon 1D Mk IV, and the 5D Mk III, and II. As much as I love this camera, the fact remains that I look at cameras that were put out soon after that had Wi-Fi and/or GPS capabilities built in. Simply, this is inexcusable on a camera carrying this price tag.
Summary: This camera is amazing - 6400 ISO is a breeze. Very fast! Only downfall is I believe my copy is slightly soft on focusing. I've tried AF adjustments and other lenses and its not as clear as the D3s I owned but otherwise a great camera!
Summary: Canon EOS 1Dx review 9-23-2012 These are just my opinions. You can love or hate them, I don't care. I do like my 1Dx. I consider myself to be an advanced amateur or semi-pro photographer. I do sell a few photos but not enough to make a living.
Summary: I've been a Canon shooter ever since I went digital 10 years ago. My progression through Canon's DSLR line up has been the D30, 10D, 1DmkII, 5DmkII, 5DmkIII and now the 1Dx. I mainly shoot high school football which, if you don't know, is mainly played at night in about the worst lighting you should...
Summary: I own an EOS 50D and I bought the EOS-1D as a backup for it. While the 50D has many features not incorporated into the 1D, its solid body and ruggedness make it purfect as a backup. The newer EF-S lenses will not work with the 1D, however, the rest do. It's speed alone make it a great for a backup!
Excerpt: Having 61 AF points may seem excessive, but they provide better coverage of the scene and this is particularly useful with moving subjects. The Canon EOS 1DX deals well with mixed lighting conditions, producing accurate colours under the Auto White Balance setting. Read more here:
Pros: Cleaner and better quality image.It makes it much easier to switch between AF points when shooting in the upright orientation.The EOS-1DX's photodiodes are 21% larger than those in the 1Ds Mark III. Excellent noise controller.
Cons: No exposure compensation button on vertical grip and its heavy.
Excerpt: I owned this camera for six months before replacing it with the updated EOS 1D Mk II (Mark 2). It's a professional tool, very rugged, weatherproof with a mind boggling array of configuration options that lets you customise the camera to the Nth degree.
Excerpt: My Husband is a professional Newspaper Photographer and he has always dreamed about buying a Canon D1 because they are waterproof all over and are one of the best cameras you can get for a professional to work with.
Pros: Very good Professional Camera
Cons: Currently very expensive int he UK - Cheaper in USD from the US .
