Does anyone have a link to an instruction manual pdf, canon Europe, USA and Australia are all blocking my phone for some reason and I'd like to have a look while I'm at work. Thanks in advance...

Glad to hear that some people in some places have a 1Dx mk 2. They obviously exist. Many places in the UK are still taking pre-orders.

Mine arrived at the UPS hub at 0409 this morning, too bad I'm working in the hospital.
I'll open the box this afternoon, slap on an EOS 100mm macro and go hunting.

Just remember your parachute bag is packed with camera gear the next time you jump. ;-)a Or at least tell me where to collect the camera gear.

If he jumped without a parachute I'd expect the gear to be located about 4 feet below ground level :mrgreen:

Here's a quick ISO 10000 image I shot to take a look at the dynamic range.

Be aware that plenty of DR at ISO 10000 would be unlikely. Every stop you increase the ISO above the camera's base will clip one stop of highlight range (i.e. each time you double the ISO you lose a stop of DR).

Conversely, each time you halve the ISO you theoretically will gain a stop of DR. Canon's historic read noise problems meant that you didn't get that gain as you dropped below about ISO 800 (i.e. going from 800 to 400, 400 to 200 etc. didn't get an extra stop).

They look to have made great strides forward with the 80D and 1DxII in that regard, but I wouldn't expect that to have a significant affect at higher ISOs (other sources of noise come into play).

It does seem that DPReview were pretty negative about the general high ISO improvements vs the 1Dx (with some data to back up their claims) but it does fly in the face of more "real world" (i.e. not test chart) shots I've seen.

Yeah, if I'm being honest, I couldn't give a single flying rip what test charts say, or only how well the camera handles dynamic range, and if an image is slightly grainy at ISO 25600 when zoomed into 400%, etc etc. It's all just nitpicking at that point. I love the technical side more than most. It's neat stuff and I obsess too. But I also understand in my day to day life that stuff just doesn't really matter.

I'm only concerned with real world results. And in that regard it is unquestionably stellar. :-)

found a thread on FM, with a link to pictures

There are a bunch of pictures, including a 51,200k ISO picture

I downloaded the jpeg - the colour noise is not good, I'm wondering if the in camera NR was turned off - I would not recommend this if you shoot in jpeg

The lens used was the 35F2 IS @ F5 - somehow the right side seems not to be as sharp as I think it should be (might be the lens?) - but with some colour work, conservative NR with Masking, you can get a semi decent 51,200 ISO file - not the best but for Social Media or 4x6 it will work no problem - in B&W I think you can make some pretty good gritty pictures at 51,200 ISO


The Jpeg (not sure the profile or camera settings)

Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

It's D-day for me. Waiting for the brown truck to arrive. B&H refunded me my freight charge for screwing that part up.

I'll have to do some testing against my 1DX later this afternoon. Hm... perhaps I should install LR 6 here at the office.

Thought I'd try it. I don't have CC so I made adjustments in LR and then transferred to PS to sharpen using an edge sharpening method for export. I set masking to about 50 in the detail pallet and sharpening to 45.

This is with moderate NR. Luminance was about 45.

I pushed the pedal to the metal with luminance. 70 which is way higher than I ever use. Pushed the final sharpening as well. The gopher to the left is sharp. The on the right (grey one) not so much but I think it is a DOF thing. Taken with a 15mm lens.

Too bad you got a spiffy new camera and had such a lame subject ;)

Very nice! A step up from the usual backyard bloom/indoor stuffed animals shots :)

Great shots! Is that a resident shortie? All the ones near me have headed back to Scandinavia.

Is the touch screen only available in Live View? I thought you could use it when reviewing images?
