Anyone know if LP-E4 battery (from a id mark iii) can be safely used in the idx mark ii?

Previous LP-E4 and LP-E4N battery packs for EOS-1D series
• Can be used in EOS-1D X Mark II
Note: EOS-1D X Mark II maximum shooting speed will drop to approximately 12 fps

Conclusion
So the bottom line is that there are only two caveats to mixing old batteries with the new LP-E19 battery packs: the new battery pack requires the new charger to fully charge it; if you do use an older battery pack in the EOS-1D X Mark II, there’s a slight drop in maximum shooting speed to about 12 frames per second (from its normal 14 fps maximum speed).

Mike,

I want to thank you for all the effort you've put into reporting your experiences with the 1D X2. I got mine recently and I have to say... it's quite a step up from the 1D IV, though I'll keep mine as my backup camera. I do mostly wildlife and will have to get a bit closer to the birds with my 100-400ii, but I have found, the 1.4X TC actually works as advertised on my 1D X2. I was never satisfied with the results using it with either the 7D2 or my 1D IV.

So thank you for allowing me to watch your efforts evolve... including the Sony/Canon thread that you started a few months ago. I know the 5D IV is a great camera as well, but I'm pleased with the files from the 1D X2....enough detail for me.

Regarding the LP-E4 and LP-E4N batteries: You can very well charge them, as well as the new LP-E19, with the new LC-E19 charger. It's easily recognized as it has a red stripe around it, like an L-lens.

Sorry I've been MIA as I'm so busy.

In response to @umphotography a while back, the reasons I would swap my 5D4 for a second 1DX Mark 2 are as follows (this may not be an exhaustive list):

1) I don't like the 30MP sensor. (see below)
2) I don't like using it with non-IS lenses as I need a much higher shutter speed to eliminate camera shake
3) It doesn't focus as fast as the 1DX2
4) Image quality doesn't have the 'magic' of the 1DX2
5) I use fill flash a LOT at weddings and (unless I use HSS) am restricted to 1/200 second SS which is hopeless for me with non-IS lenses. (85mm f/1.2, 35mm f/1.4 and 135mm f/2)
6) I like the sturdiness of the 1DX2

I do a lot of sports and some weddings. It's not good for sports (focussing and FPS too low) and I don't find it great for weddings for the above reasons. I think it's great if you have all the time in the world, are using a tripod or are concerned about the weight.

Hotter than a hot thing in a really hot place with the heating on high, few from Silverstone at the weekend, huge grids and some terrific racing as we come to expect from the CSCC, few of my favourites - hope you like.

#1 bit of flamage

#3 Little more flamage - like it wasn't hot enough already ;-)a

As per usual took waaaaay too many photo's, problem with shooting for an entire club and not just a team or two - if you want to take a peek at the rest then they are:

Saturday (external link) More of the classics

Sunday (external link) More modern

Thanks for looking

Wondering what cfast 2.0 cards, other than Lexar or Sandisk that people may be using.

There seems to be a few more on the market now that are names I am not familiar with but seem to be priced quite a bit more reasonably prices.

For example Delkin, Prograde, Angelbird .....

Does anyone have any experience with any of the above?

As a wedding photographer there is nothing more important to me then having a camera that can Lock on an image in Crap No Light conditions and deliver a file that I can use. 1st shot is 3200 ISO. Zero Noise

2nd shot was 12800 ISO and Minimal noise. Horrible light here but the camera got it done

Both of these are straight off camera captures. Nothing done except a base import in LR with a base preset
