I don't have a 1Dx, yet, anyway but I will never buy another camera that does not have a 1 prefix. :D

Ok, you are thinking same my way exactly, and i asked you if you may/will have 1DX, i didn't say that you have it already [Sorry i didn't mention may or will].

Nice! I have about 50% battery at the end of my 3K shots, and it's the original battery as well. Very durable unit.

For AF, I have a lot more misses than you, but I'm shooting swimmers at f/2.8 while laying on the deck near the water level. Most of these shots are of butterfly stroke, where the swimmer disappears, then reappears only briefly, while moving a distance that covers the DOF completely. Still, the camera is so good at AF in this situation, that even with the occasional misses, I can get about 15 keepers in 15 yards of swimming -- and I'm talking about 30" canvas print kinds of keepers. This is a situation where I need every millisecond of speed this body can offer, and it delivers.

QUOTED IMAGE

Amazing shot! Yes for sure that would be hard to track. For me when I have to get fitness competitors basically doing gymnastics in theatre lighting, I get about 95% keepers (took a bit of practice on my part). The 70-200 MkII takes credit too.

I always remember people saying "once you get a 1D you wont go back". I've heard that of various things, like "Macs", heck I had a Mac, went back to PC right away (LOL, didn't like the OS). But with the 1D it's really hard to leave. Mine is now over 7 years old I realized (ACK) and I do need a new camera, especially "just in case" something happens. The 5D III felt really good when I tried it at a store, not "toy like" like the 5D original I tried years ago (yuck, no offense). But then I worry about the teeny tiny battery performance. As you would know, not fun switching batteries 10x during an event like this!

I remember all the complaints of the 1D3 being a dud, not 7 years later I can say it's the best camera I've ever owned. Noise performance is great (95% of my shots are taken at ISO1600), AF is very good, and it feels solid.

As for dynamic range...

I was out taking shots of a fitness competitor and bodybuilder, in an alley at about 9pm this summer, using my 2 flashes and STE2 trigger which as we know with infrared can be finicky without line of site. So a few shots I didn't get the flash to fire. I had this one shot I loved, so had to work with what I had.

What are you shooting? There are lots of settings that can be adjusted to help with auto focus. I know years ago there was an issue with some of the 1d3's AF but I think most 1d3 owners had that taken care of. I'm by no means a guru but I know my 1d3 settings work great for sports. The first thing I make sure is set on any Canon dslr, make sure you are using rear button focus and your AF is set for A I Servo.

I can post my sports settings if you are interested in trying them.

I can't see the before, but the after looks great. Really nice post to get that edgy fitness look. Well done!

Thank you very much, Waterrockets! I've been using Photoshop for 15 years, and I'm a huge fan of Joel Grimes. Image hosting is being a pain. Let me try again

ISO400 in a dark alley, strobes didn't fire, thought all was lost :(

^ An online buddy (and somewhat well known photographer) told me he wasn't even sure he could get back that much detail with his D800 or Sony A7R (I'm sure he could, but he was very surprised). On my old 20D, recovery like this would result in pattern noise for sure. 1D3 is much nicer, there was noise, but random and easy to remove. Recover of shadows never is a problem for me. I have seen issues with 5D's (not sure if MkIII has it) where shadow recovery can be an issue sometimes.

Note to self, don't use line of site infrared triggers with a brolly. LOL!

I was impressed considering my 1D3 I now realize is over 7 years old! To think, I paid $4200 for the 1D3 brand new when it was released, now a 5D costs about that much with a grip, and the 1DX is almost double. :(

I have been researching how to set my back focus and haven't found how to do it. I have it on A I Servo. IM shooting high school basketball the fastest shutter speed I'm using is 320 at ISO 3200 and with the crappy lighting im about 1.25-1.50 underexposed. That would be great if you can share some of your settings to help with focus.
