My Canon EOS 1DX Arrived!

March 09, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

My Canon EOS 1DX was due to arrive on Wednesday from Canada. I was
actually expecting it Thursday, cause, who knows what could happen when
it comes to crossing the border. Needless to say, I was surprised when the
mailman arrived Tuesday.
 

The camera was in great condition and I couldn't wait to start using it.
I was actually surprised that the body was larger than my Mark IV.
The menus? Simply, there's a bunch. So my next purchase is one of
Art Morris'  fine guides.
 

One of the first things I tried was taking an image with my 1d Mark IV
and from the same spot, with the 1DX. I wanted to see the difference
between a cropped sensor and a full frame sensor.

While I do see the difference, I really don't see the BIG deal. I mean,
just step forward a couple of feet to shorten the discrepancy.
 

That's all I really had time for. Hopefully I can get out this weekend
and really put it through its paces.
