Reviews and Problems with Canon EOS-1D (old model)

Great camera but Wi-Fi and GPS not included.
13 March 2013
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. And I often find myself in wildlife situations grabbing for the 5D III so I can get a 22 MP snap instead of the 1-D X's 18MP. Another shortcoming.
Summary: This will be an ongoing review as I've only had the camera a short while and just getting to know it and strengths and weaknesses- First off let me say the images at high ISOs like 6400,8000,even 10,000 are very very good- I had a canon 7d and anything over 800 ISO would look quite noisy, but with this 1DX the images at high ISO look fantastic.
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. This is my first impressions of the 1Dx after about two weeks of shooting with it. It is heavier than my old EOS Mark III. The Mark III weighs 40 ounces where as the 1Dx weighs 54 ounces on my postal scale.
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 ask a camera to shoot action sports in. My typical exposure settings of 1/500 sec @ F2.8 meant my ISO would range between 2500 to 6400 depending on the field and location.
Summary: Perfect reliable camera. Even without good experience, pictures taken with this device show the difference in comparison to crop sensor cameras. The only problem is to get a custom with its shape and control limbs/buttons that are a spread and not very comfortable for people with small hand. But this is only the question of time...
Summary: I bought a 20D because one of my passions is photography. And its much better than my old one. One of the most positive sides of it is that all my old lenses goes to this one because my old one was a 1000D. The 20D is much bigger but also has a better grip than the 1000D. But the negative side is that the required memory cards are Compact Flash (CF) and the 1000D was SD so i had to sell them because i have no use for them anymore.
