"So, if I got it right…: The EOS 1D C is the same hardware as the EOS 1D X for twice the price. I wonder how long it will take for some skilled hacker to bring all the EOS 1D C features on the EOS 1D X.

yep

just went to a canon event last night - the reps said the 1dc doesn't have an rj-45 networking jack because they needed room for the audio output plug - it was simple as that

that's odd because those video units are used often in a tethered mode - and sometimes WIRED tether is the only option, say in a high wifi traffic environment or simply so far away remote that wifi signal won't get there - but there are a TON of advantages of being able to control these cams remotely over a network (ie, its up on a jib all day.. you can see batt status, how much recording time is left on the card, "rough" focus adjustments, as well as change all the shooting settings of course - etc)

other things i learned.. there's no flash on the 6D because that's where the wifi chip/antenna goes - there is no gps/wifi in other bodies due to the signal can't get through the magnesium case - the c300 is pretty cool (web interface combined w/ wifi adapter - slick!) - and.. mum's still the word on a 7D2

The discussion around GPS/WiFi not being included due to the fact that the antenna would not work inside the body, is somewhat strange.

With technique of today it would be very easy to design/mount the antenna for each of these devices outside the magnesium body, but behind the rubber cover.
It would present some directional effects of the antennas but it would definitely be possible. :cool:

Well... yesterday after much procrastinating I finally bit the bullet and bought a 1DX. Got familiar with it as I could last night, and took it on a field hockey shoot this morning with the 70-200 2.8II.

What can I say, but this camera is #$%^'ing amazing! Every shot was tack sharp - I'm used to about a 60% in-focus rate with the 5DII. I'm also used to hours of post processing to eek the best out of each shot. PP on the 1DX pics consisted of selecting the best shots, cropping to suit, and exporting to jpg - nothing else had to be done. I can understand why the pro's love it so much.

Focus locks on, and never lets go. Pressing the shutter button is like pulling the trigger on an Uzi 9mm.

In the spirit of the thread, here's a cropped shot SOOC from this morning. It's the winning goal of the grand final. It's the middle shot out of a 7 shot burst:

Maybe someone can compare 1Dx to 5D mark III or II in terms of recovering highlights in RAW? That is the olny thing i don't like in mark II - even cheapo X100 is doing better :-)

That's still an awesome capture though!

Anyone know of any (cheaper) alternatives to the Canon TC 80N3 that will work with the 1DX btw?

Check to see if you have the active focus point as your exposure point, or something like that,

Though in general I am finding some still under exposed a little, though I rather be under exposed than over
