Did a last minute favour for my partner who is an Officiant and did a 30 minute wedding shoot during a very small family wedding. There was an extended family member there that was a newspaper photographer with 25 years professional experience, which if I knew was going to be there, I wouldn't have gone - but we co-existed and the couple wanted it that way.
First of all, this guy was right up in their faces letting it rip - it was like an f'ing machine gun - I couldn't believe what was happening - I actually stood back to distance myself with what was going on. Second, the sound of that camera is just completely ridiculous in the mode he had it in at least.
So, here is the question - is a 1Dx an appropriate wedding camera or is it too loud? - or was it this guys style that just ruined it?
As an aside, the small location was completely backlit so I pulled out my Rogue Flashbender and bounced flashed to fill - ISO was 160-320 and pictures turned out well - couple really liked them. The fellow Pro gave me his camera at the end so he could jump in for a family shot - he was shooting at ISO 2000 - 3 full stops higher - basically blew out the background of every picture - found out he handed over 500 images for 30 minutes!
I almost switched to 1DXs over a year ago from my 5D3s because I wanted better high ISO.
Am I wrong? Thoughts?
