No more threads asking on how to get shutter count. :D

"The EOS-1D X alleviates this problem by featuring a status log that keeps track of any error that may occur and when it happened. This makes it easier for a technician to diagnose any issues. With the status log, there is also a counter that keeps track of the number of shutter release cycles, measured in ‘000's, so it is easy to see how much a camera has been used. However, with a shutter durability that has been increased from 300,000 frames on the EOS-1D Mark IV to 400,000 frames on the EOS-1D X it's unlikely that many photographers will exceed the expected shutter life of the camera.

Ok guys, i've had time to sleep, Here are my complete thoughts on the 1D X

First off, I like it, its a gigantic step foreward, everything about it is new, and thats nice...some highlights to me:

- New sensor seems targeted right between the D3S and the D3X, More pixels than the S for wedding photogs needing to make large prints, but less than the X to keep noise controlled nicely, Very cool

- New metering system with a 100,000 pixel RGB matrix(253 zones in most situations VS 63), This sounds MUCH more like Nikon's meter..Hopefully it works as well

- New AF system, Wow, that seems like a lot of cross type points and that...Very nice system, hopefully it performs as well as it looks (And i dont doubt it)

- AF Microadjust, Now you can adjust both ends of the zoom range by different amounts, Thats a cool feature right there... Hopefully this one trickles down the line fast

- 3.2" Rear Screen, Cool, wish it was articulating but i understand that its not because of the 1D X needing absurd durability

- Controls, Wow, I like this, vertical joystick FINALLY for focus point selection ;) Also like the FOUR buttons on the front of the camera that seem to be assignable to DoF preview/etc...Also good to see a set for vertical orientation

-----

Overall this is very much like what I said when i proclaimed the 1-series would be combined into a single camera, The One Camera To Rule Them All, and this seems like it is that, it seems like a camera you can take to any situation and it will perform perfectly in that situation, and at $6800, its really not that bad when you consider a 1Ds III sold for $7000-8000 at one time....

Now, this is a good thing, if I'm right, then this means Canon is likely going to start incorporating more features into the 7DII and 5DIII

I expect the 5D Mark IIs successor will be a higher resolution (Perhaps 32-36mp) Studio/Landscape camera, it will have a bit higher durability than the previous 5DII, New AF system, probubly a refinement of the 19 point system in the 7D using tech from the 1D X

The 7D's successor will be even more tailored to the wildlife and action shooting set, for those of us who want a 1.6x crop or who simply cant afford the 1DX, Probubly remain at 18mp, but refined a bit for better high ISO performance, the AF system will likely use imporvements from the 1D X and I hope it has smaller AF points and is more discerning than the current one (And yes, For the 600 Billionth Time I know about Spot AF, and I STILL feel Spot AF is not discerning enough..)

And I expect we will indeed see a new cheaper FF SLR, I predict the 5DIII will move up a little in price (Like the Rumored D800) which leaves a spot to put an affordable FF SLR in the lineup...

Just thinking out loud, isn't it a better idea to wait for a few months after it comes out for them to probably iron out any little issues?

20 pages of comments in under 12 hours... that has to be some kind of new POTN record!

Canon's press release claims the X's entirely new 18MP sensor is more noise free and more enlargeable than 21MP FF prior. We'll see!

I won't be an "early adopter" (as if I can afford a pair of them anyway!)... Let someone else do the beta testing. Especially not likely to jump immetiately to a brand new model with so many radically new features: shutter, metering system, image sensor, AF system and more in this case.

Wow wow wow!!! This makes me want the 5D3 to come out even more! VERY happy to read all the new video additions and upgrades they included! I may end up selling my 5D2s for one of these!

I suppose that this camera would make me want to charge more for photography so i could afford it...IF it is as good as the D3s in high ISO noise control.

Possibly...

Rob Galbraith will be complaining about something with it, like he always does, I know that already

So far, I'm impressed. I'm pre-ordering this and hopefully won't be let down once it arrives.

I'm actually very very happy with this announcement and the specs. I can't believe the price... seems too good to be true.

.

Where does it say that (18.1 mp being more enlargeable than 21 mp)? I was reading through the Press Release and did not find that little blurb.

Why would they do that? Canon probably sells 10000 crop cameras for every Series 1.
