I believe the D4 and D800 will do uncompressed video out via HDMI.

what feature does the Mark X has that the D800 does NOT? I like the prime lens of Canon, but this D800 seems to surpass all features of the Mark X. Name a few thing that the Mark X is better than the D800 please

And here's a $1 million question:

why would any1 buy the Nkon D4 for $6K where the D800 has better features than the D4? I notice the fps is 9 vs. 4, but for those who don't need 9 fps, after all, 4 fps is quite good enough for a lot of us.

Likewise, I don't understand why any1 would buy the Mark X, where the 5d Mark III has pretty much all the features that the Mark X have? Again, it's solely the fps of 14 vs. 6. I can live w/ that for the extra $3K.

Happy

Doesn't the 1Dx have better weather sealing? Also has the built in grip and although the 5DIII has good focus and is based on the 1Dx I bet the 1Dx's is better.

I am sure others will be along to point out other differences which will count for some.

They're utterly apples and oranges...

The 1DX is a speed and action body and the D800 is not.

If you don't need the blazing fast speed of a 1DX, then it's not the tool for the job. Simple...

some1 just told me the D800 doesn't do 1920 x 1080, so I don't know if that's true or not

You answered it yourself--D4 and 1DX both have continuous framerates much higher than the D800. If you're shooting sports the D800 isn't the best choice. You don't have to identify with the need for a feature to understand why other people might want to pay for it. I don't need 14fps either but I can see how some people would.

I'm sure there are other differences as well, but higher framerate is a pretty easy one to spot. I also prefer Canon's cross-type AF point spread better than Nikon's, and I'm sure a lot of Nikon shooters would love to have cross-type AF points that aren't clustered in the middle a la cameras circa 2004.

I'm not sure but I have learned my lesson. I pre-ordered the 1DXLVII just to be on the safe side.

The 1DX interests me for several reasons... it's full frame but has that massive frame rate and I really like the fact that they decided to lower the resolution with a new sensor, faster shooting, faster processing in post and less hard drive space wasted... and it's a 1 series, so no need to buy a grip.

I could see myself buying one of these instead of the 5D3, which I decided against for a 5D2. :P

Dunno about that. I was invited to a CPS nature photography workshop with Martin Eisenhawer on Monday at a wildlife reserve. The CPS guys brought stacks of the newest lenses, a batch of 5D3s and not sure how many 1DXs.

I played with the 1DX with a 400L 2.8 II mounted for about an hour, though while talking with Martin and others at the same time. I can't say I really got to know the 1DX much in that time, it's a bit like suddenly finding yourself piloting the Mother Ship, but I did get a good idea how it is for wildlife.

I didn't really do much with the settings, just used it as set up by CPS for the context - birds in and around a marsh grass pond. The 1DX is very easy and beautiful to work with, so natural that it is only after a while that you realize how much it is doing for you without a hint of a struggle. I won't even talk about the continuous FPS, it's just insane. I had to reduce the FPS, then go to one shot to find my sanity again. While I can see the FPS for a lot of things, it wasn't what I wanted in this context.

I was mainly concentrated on shooting a Kingfisher, one of the most difficult birds to capture, as it flitted from perch to perch through the grasses and diving in the water. It was the AI servo color/face tracking that confounded me, never lost the bird, no matter where it flew through the grasses or dived, as long as I kept in the viewfinder, and it seemed like it found it again even after I had lost it from the viewfinder. Mesmerizing.

I can bear witness that that thing is about the most amazing body I have ever handled, but I won't go into anything else about it as you can read it all on CPN or wherever. If you get the opportunity to try it, do it. Here are a few of my shots. It was an overcast day, so the light wasn't that great, but I had the feeling that with a lesser rig I wouldn't have even gotten these.

Great review, John. Makes me that much more anxious for mine.

They let you take your captures with you. Please tell me that you took home RAW files too?!?! :)

They let me take whatever I wanted with me on my card and change any setting I wished. We had absolutely free hand with the gear, other than "adopting" it and taking it home. :D

Frankly, I was interested more in other things than the 1DX, trading experience, thoughts and approaches to wildlife photography with Martin and others there, checking out the lenses, etc., such that I didn't think to even check whether I was shooting jpeg or raw, so as it were, sorry, jpeg. Had I been specifically interested in acquiring the 1DX as my next body, I certainly would have shot raw and kept it like a dog in a manger until I had played with every trick it had, but sorry, that was not a priority. As it is, I will be getting my 5D3 this week, and unless some other spontaneous opportunity arises, won't be looking at the 1DX before I have exhaustively explored the 5D3.

That all said, I can't possibly image you would be disappointed by the 1DX if you have speced it out in line with your needs and desires.
