I got this camera body in time to shoot some great sporting events here in the Rockies including the U.S. Pro Cycling Challenge, the 45th annual Ruggerfest and the Motherlode Volleyball Classic. For me, the AI tracking is the "must have" for any sports photographer and the 1Dx is head and shoulders over anything I have used in the past. Now with the latest firmware update giving me red focus points on the viewing screen, low light shooting is even easier. Setting the custom settings took a few minutes and then it was shoot away! The burst rate made for some amazing captures as well as the super fast transfer rate to the memory card meant I was never waiting. I like the slightly changed menus items and I found them very easy to navigate through. After reading up on setting and changing the AI functions, I found I could easily switch back and forth from with getting the burst off or the focus first. Great for shooting sports like rugby and hockey. The low light capabilities are just great and shooting in the range of ISO 6,400 are well within reach and only need minor touchup for noise in post, if at all. The rugged build gives me the usual confidence that I have with Canon's 1D models. I shoot in rain or shine, so this is a great feature. All in all, a complete package for me!

1DX is good, but buggy

I use the 1DX for weddings as a replacement for my 5DII. Pros: The AF is responsive and fast in good light, and AI Servo tracks relentlessly. I can even use the 85/1.2 lens to track slow moving people, like the bride coming down the aisle. 12 fps is blazing fast. Images up to 12,800 ISO are usable with post processing noise cleanup, and the noise is like film grain. Two CF card slots are nice. The battery lasts an entire wedding over 1200 shots.

I use the 1DX for weddings as a replacement for my 5DII. Pros: The AF is responsive and fast in good light, and AI Servo tracks relentlessly. I can even use the 85/1.2 lens to track slow moving people, like the bride coming down the aisle. 12 fps is blazing fast. Images up to 12,800 ISO are usable with post processing noise cleanup, and the noise is like film grain. Two CF card slots are nice. The battery lasts an entire wedding over 1200 shots. Actually, I've shot 1700 frames and still not had the battery go out. Canon speedlites can now be controlled from the camera menu. I can actually use the speedlite built-in functions because they are simple to program. Cons: It is heavy. I lift weights a few days before a wedding to strengthen my arms. The AF points are grayed out so it is difficult to place them on a high contrast area in the dark. For weddings this is a big deal. I sure hope they fix this. I am not talking about when AF locks on, but when I press the shutter halfway the AF would blink red on the 5DII and other 1D's just momentarily to let me know where it was. AF freezes about twice on a typical wedding session. Repeatedly pressing the shutter button or turning the camera power off is what awakens it. It is worst with the 70-200/2.8 IS II. For some reason, that lens is now difficult to focus in low light. With a 580EXII on the hotshoe and radio trigger plugged into the camera sync port, the playback button freezes about 2 out of 10 times. It will show the image for a fraction of a second, then go blank. Repeatedly pressing it causes the lens to hunt as though the shutter button is pressed halfway (even though it is not). Sometimes I have to turn the camera off to get the playback button to function properly. This seems to happen every time the couple wants to see an image on the back. AI Servo slows down quite a bit in low light. Combined with the 61-point automatic focus (where the camera selects the focus points), AI Servo becomes useless. Off-center AF points are less sensitive than the center AF in low light. They get less sensitive further away, with the edge AF points a full stop less sensitive. I exclusively use the center AF and recompose in churches and receptions for maximum AF speed. Overall, this camera has great potential, but needs firmware updates to fix annoying issues. I was just as nitpicky when I purchased the 5DII and it worked flawlessly in 80+ weddings. The grayed out AF, freezing AF, and freezing playback button are my biggest gripes.

A great professional camera

By

I'm so impressed at the quality of photographs which emerge from this camera. There's quite a learning curve, and in 2 weeks I've only begun to scratch the surface of what the 1DX is capable of. It is a heavy camera, but packed with great features. The shutter speed makes it a great camera for action shots. It has a mammoth ISO range which allows for great low-light images. Great job as always, Canon!

1Dx A Workhorse and Genius

By

I've used the 1Dx for almost a year at full, packed, crowded events where it has taken a beating like no other and still performs flawlessly. Focusing is faster than the other cameras, I think because it has a separate Digic chip dedicated to focusing. This is true in sports and at parties. Highlight control (a form of HDR) allows me to use a flash to show the fur of a white fur coat in a dimly lit party while attaining proper exposure of the person. I regularly shoot indoors in low light of bars/restaurants at ISO 16,000 when I have to and it allows great website use images. At ISO 6400 the Speedlite 600EX-RT helps focus quickly and at 1/128 flash power at F2.8 at six feet it preserves background lighting. That means I don't blind the patrons or interrupt the mood. There is noticeable grain at ISO 16,000. ISO 3200 seems to be the limit before getting grain if I know I'm going to print an image. The fast 14 FPS requires practicing a quick pause to re-atain focus with moving people. The fast FPS allows capturing the expression and moment better than professionals using slower cameras when we compare photos afterwards. The live-view mode focusing is still much slower. It is cumbersome to switch live-view shooting from movie mode to still mode, but when you do, it allows fantastic flexibility. You can even change ISO while filming. It is true that you can set a fast shutter speed, make a 1920x1080, 30fps movie and make a still frame using Canon's software and post a photo that people will swear is a “normal picture� and have no idea it was pulled from a video. The custom buttons allow the AF-ON button to Focus/Expose and the * button to go to full program mode. It's brilliant that some Speedlite Functions can be set with the Custom Shooting Modes. I wish the Flash Exposure Bracketing would be remembered in Custom Shooting Modes. My favorite feature is the quick access to HDR Exposure Bracketing by holding down the two MODE/DRIVE buttons. Oh, and be sure your camera bag will hold it.(The Canon camera bag holds it perfectly.) The 1Dx is big and has powerful recognition and status with fellow photographers.

Fantastic...mostly

By

The autofocus speed is incredible and image quality is amazing. I have shot it exclusively over the last year and it continues to deliver. Numerous covers, gallery shots and assignments have come out of this camera. My only complaint is that it get excessive sensor dust/oil spots on the sensor and have to send it to CPS every few months for cleaning.

Love, Love, Love My New Camera EOS-1D X

By

Like many others who had their eyes on this camera body, from the first time it was made public to the world at the PDN photo show in New York City. I to had to have this Camera body. I played around with it every change I got until I could come up with the money to buy. I shoot fashion and beauty and did my first shoot 3days after buying. I had the model jumping up and down with a piece of cloth following her movement, shooting at a high speed. ISO 100, F4 @250, 24-70mm lens on a white background lite with strobes.. I cant wait to shoot more and more with this body.. Thank You Canon.

Not disappointed

By

I wanted this camera since if was introduced to the consumer world. I fought with myself over the price for a long time. I downloaded the manual and read it prior to buying the camera. It takes a lot to get use, sometimes overwhelming. I do 90% action sports photography. This camera is absolutely unbelievable to put it mildly. I just finished shooting an AMA Pro flat-track motorcycle race where the bikes reached speeds in excess of 137 mph. I was able to track and shoot the action at 12 fps using a 70-200L lens with absolutely no issues at all. I shot these bikes within 5 feet of my position and was able to capture the facial expressions (which in itself is almost impossible to accomplish). Forget the price. This camera is the utmost piece of digital equipment on the market today.

Great Camera

By

I just purchased my new EOS 1D X and photographed some high ISO images with and without a flash. I was amazed at the fact the noise was just not to a level that ruined the image. I shot with a ISO setting of 51200. I am very impressed with my new EOS 1D X. If you want to be the best then you need the best!! The Cajun.

The Best Wedding Photography Camera Ever

By

As a Wedding Photographer, I depend on the Best Camera and Glass Possible. With the Canon EOS-1DX Body, now I can shoot the photographs that I always envision with much ease and comfort. To much Amazement, the 1DX seems understand exactly how I feel on any challenging assignment. This camera allows me to Perform and Be at my Best in Every Single Moment, for example while shooting Weddings. The 1DX gives me the peace of mind that I know that I will get the photograph that my clients are looking for. I have used every Canon EOS camera available since the 1980's and today. I can now say that this is Canon's real true Flagship camera of all time. I really have no other words to say. The success of my work is due largely because of the kind of tools I use. Canon has truly made the Ultimate Go Anywhere, Shooting Dynamo of a Camera… Mahalo Canon for the 1DX.

Why NO CLEAN HDMI????

By

First, I love the camera. Being a professional Cinematographer I have discovered the world of DSLR with the first 5D mark II, and now the 1 DX. But I am surprised that Canon seem to forget the buyers of their 1DX, when offering CLEAN HDMI out of the cheaper 5D mark 3, and not the 1DX? What happened there? I would love for canon to try to remember to facilitate the Professional segment also, and give us the possibility to get Clean HDMI and record externally. The 1DC is not an option. To pricy for what it can do.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can I know the ISO performance? I wold like to compare it to the 5DMKIII, which can go up to ISO 25, 600 with only "Moderate" noise, according to Popular Photography.
DERI D  I have both the Canon 1Dx and the Canon 5D M3. I have been quite happy with the performance of the M3 as far as ISO goes, but I am finding that the 1Dx is probably at the top of its class as far as ISO performance. Its performance in low light, high ISOs is quite impressive. I haven't seen any official extensive reviews of the 1Dx yet, but I am sure that it will be highly rated at high ISOs. I did see one photography site that was rating camera's according to their ISO performance and it rated the 1Dx well below the new Nikon cameras. However, I noted that the photography site obviously mixed the Canon 1Dx up with the Canon G1x (a point and shoot) as it stated that the 1 Dx had a sensor that was almost a C size. Since the 1Dx has a full size sensor and the G1x has close to a C size sensor, it was clear that they mixed the two up (a very bad mistake, but then again, it was a Nikon site)... My sister got her Canon 1Dx shortly after I got mine and she is pretty much blown away with the ISO performance....
Zi Yang L  Alright, thanks for the answer. and the 1DX and G1X screw up still makes me laugh.....LOL
