Canon EOS-1D X field review

 

Just before Halloween in 2009, Canon announced its most powerful DSLR to date. The $5,000 professional-grade EOS-1D Mark IV was the company's answer to Nikon'...

What's a field review, you ask? Essentially, the term serves to clarify that our analysis is based on real-world usage, which regrettably doesn't include the thorough benchmarking a camera of this caliber ordinarily requires. It's a perfectly suitable...

Canon EOS-1D X

 

Expert review by : Jim Fisher (pcmag.com)

Canon EOS-1D X

 

The Canon EOS-1D X is a great choice for sports shooters and photojournalists, but is likely an overkill for most shooters.

Full-frame image sensor. 14fps burst capability. 61-point autofocus system. Excellent images at very high ISO settings. Built like a tank. Loads of controls. Dual CF card slots. 1080p video capture.

Very expensive. Heavy. No built-in flash. No headphone jack. Uncompressed HDMI video output not possible. Switching between still and video live view mode is cumbersome.

The rear LCD is big at 3.2 inches, but it looks small when framed by the 1D X's body. Its resolution is an impressive 1,040k-dots. It's a bit sharper than the 920k-dot display found on the Nikon D800, but even looking at them side-by-side it's hard to...

Canon EOS-1D X

 

And then there was one - one Canon EOS 1-Series DSLR body. The Canon EOS-1D X.

A phenomenon has been fixed in which the white balance may be disturbed by the timing of the shutter release when the drive mode is single shooting and a flash (E-TTL)is used.

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II Review

 

The EOS 1DX Mark II is Canon's latest top-of-the-line full-frame professional-level DSLR. It features a 20.2 million pixel sensor, which is an upgrade from the 18 million pixel sensor that the 1DX had.

The Canon EOS 1D X Mark II is more of an incremental upgrade than the difference between the Nikon D4S and the Nikon D5, however it is still a very tempting proposition for professional photographers.

Canon 1DX Review

 

This is without a doubt the most impressive camera I've seen since I went digital. There: You have the executive summary. The Canon 1D X is a certified monster of a camera. It's the biggest, the fastest, and if you'll permit me to create a word that is...

The reason to buy the Canon 1D X is simple: If you want speed and plenty of it, and the best autofocus on any full-frame DSLR, the 1DX is your camera. It's too big, too expensive, and it's missing just a few video features such as audio monitoring in...

Camera Review: Canon EOS-1D X

 

Canon unleashes a digital beast with this fast-shooting, full-frame, flagship DSLR.

Incredibly fast frame rate and performance speed; beautiful image quality even in extremely low light at extremely high ISOs; tough, sturdy build with an elegant overall design despite its beefy size; a boatload of features, most of which are extremely...

Expensive; no built-in Wi-Fi; no headphone jack; studio photographers might find the resolution wanting

The Canon 1D X may be expensive but make no mistake, you get a whole lotta camera for $6,800. If there’s anything I can say that’s critical of this superstar DSLR from Canon—aside from a few minor things like a missing headphone jack, etc.—it’s that...
