I had those settings simply to get some 25600 shots to work with, during the slow periods of the game. Since the 5D3 is just under 2 stops better than the 7D, and I would frequently work with ISO 6400 on the 7D, I need to get my actionsets designed to work with the 5D3 at the higher ISOs. There are times during the game where the lighting is very low for promos, etc, and I will need 25600. Right now 12800 is perfectly fine for the settings I use during normal game time. Also, I am finding that I am getting better results at higher shutter speeds, where I normally shoot at 1/1250th, but 1/1600th and even 1/2000th works better on the slams and fast breaks. This could warrant 25600 at f3.2 for these shutter speeds.

When I am done with this exercise, I will be able to process a run of the mill ISO 25600 shot from the 5D3 with a push of a "play" button, with no masking or other personalized attention, like I did with the 7D.

Looking through what thedigitalpicture has posted on their website, I can't visually see a difference. Though I would assume real-life shooting there's a bigger difference.

Real world use, there is definitely a difference.

Dude I own a 1DX and it has been nothing but the truth, more then likely they are not telling the whole story behind this, sounds like to me they either bought a refurbished, or a grey market 1DX.

Get the 1DX and once you have it, YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

Not that much differences? Are you kidding me… I have both and since I got my 1DX I have NOT touched my 5DIII … back up ONLY..

You need to put things into context. Do you really think there would be any difference at the end of a portrait session or wedding shoot?

I have pictures where I, just by looking at the pictures, can't figure out if they are taken with the 1DX or the 7D.

I have other pictures where it's pretty obvious that it just must be the 1DX.

So it depends A LOT on the conditions.

The 7D is still an overlooked camera. The 7D is the only sale I regret. I should have **NEVER** sold that camera.

The only time I was able to extract more resolution from a scene than the 70-200mm IS2 delivers... I had to change to medium format. That lens is insanely good.

I agree with you. Even if I am fortunate enough to get a 5DIII, I have no intentions of selling my 7D unless I am replacing it with a 7DII.

Personally, the 1dx increased my keeper rate over the 5dIII. I shoot mostly wildlife and sports and the 1dx high ISO is outstanding in low light. The 5D3 is good, but the 1dx is better.

Not arguing with you at all, but a question: If the 5DIII has the same AF system as the 1DX, then what difference makes the keeper rate higher?

Or perhaps it doesn't have the same AF system. I keep hearing that it does.

They do, but perhaps configurations opened up in one vs the other helps make some of the differences, or one's use of function/feature?

Especially with the latest firmware for the 1DX, the difference has increased.

In favour of 1DX:
Shutter lag
FPS
Higher buffer.

Things I shoot

Weddings
Portraits
Kids

Is the price of a 5D3 + 70-200Lii and $600 cash worth a 1DX? One of the biggest selling point for me is the 1DX's shutter life (a whopping 400,000 approximated lifespan) With that amount, I think I can use this camera for a decade lol.

Given the types of photography you do, I can't understand why you're considering changing but it's really your own decision to make.

In any case, you can never be certain a camera won't fail and, when shooting weddings, a spare body is a must have.

Its to the point now that you need to answer 3 very important questions when selecting a camera

1. How much speed to you really need ?

2. How clean do you need the files to be ??

3. How much money do you want to spend to achieve those goals.


For my needs. A 5D3 is more than sufficient. If I were doing more sports for $$$ then i would have a 1Dx
