Do you know if its quieter than the quiet mode on the 7D2? Although it's still audible on the 7D2, it seems to be a very subdued and fairly unobtrusive sound.

I doubt it as the mass of the Mirror even dampened is far bigger.
One day someone will make a wild life camera that has an option of a truly silent shutter .

People often say WOW you got the Owl looking right at you well done er not skill it was looking to see what the really loud noise is that scaring it as it veers off away from you.

there is no possible way that it could be quieter - the mass is far higher

i think this video is a little bit deceptive because it sounds muted - an early video, wasn't in english, it was far louder - what i would call regular 5D3 type sounds - not the silent 5D3 mode


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Another second large earthquake hit a few hours ago in Japan. First and foremost, I hope no lives were lost and property damage is minimal. But as a side-note (and said in a way that is not insensitive), I wonder where Canon's production facilities are for their pro-series cameras. Hopefully we don't experience any further delays. Things like this, if they wreck several production facilities, can slow delivery by months.

I bet Nikon is pleased it's flagship is already out there.
Second the fear of loss of life. Cameras are fun but not at anyones expense.
Maybe one of the presidential candidates can offer to move production facilities
to the USA.

Well, that quake was really close to Oita...which is home to one of Canon's main plants, including 1Dx and 5D3 production.

Canon's new camera production is causing earthquakes somehow.

It's the milling of the unobtainium chassis in the 1Dx2...

So far it appears that at least a dozen people have lost their lives between the two quakes. Today's was an order or magnitude more powerful than Thursday's.

There does appear to be some significant damage near the epicenters...

As for the cameras, I'd be willing to bet that the first production runs of the 1DXIIs are already done and shipped. That would have to be the case for customers to have them in two weeks.

It's likely, however, if the plant is anywhere near these quakes, that there will be delays on later runs.

Ouch! Puts our petty worries about cameras into perspective!
Hope there are no more casualties.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

As I said before, first and foremost, I hope there are no more fatalities and the recovery for the people is as fast as it can be.

On Canon's production front, if they ship cameras by boat, it takes at least 12 days to cross the ocean to the United States. So yes, the first batch would already be packed up and on their way. The second batch would likely be completed already and entering the final stages of packaging and preparing for customs. Now, if Canon ships the cameras by air, they are likely still in the final stages of packaging and have not entered customs yet, which means there could definitely be some delays.

On the personal side, as I explained in an earlier post, I abandoned my first pre-order due to rising currency conversion rates and I made another pre-order with B&H. B&H seems to think that I'll get one in their first shipment, but I have doubts about that. I mean, after all, B&H might be the world's busiest online vendor and I did not get my pre-order in at B&H until the middle of March. So I would not be surprised if I ended up in their 2nd or 3rd run. If the damage from today's earthquake actually damaged Canon's Oita factory, I may not see the camera until sometime deep into the summer or beyond. Again, this is not to overshadow the disaster in any way...just chatting (and speculating) about how this might possibly effect the shipment and distribution for some of Canon's higher-end models.

I guess we'll learn more in the days to come.

I've done some research on the situation in Japan and here it what I've found. Perhaps some other folks can add to this as we learn more.

As dochooliday_sc001 said, the Canon 1DX is manufactured at Canon's plant located in Oita, Japan. Here are a couple of interesting stories on Canon's facility located there:

http://www.digitalvers​us.com …n-oita-factory-a2161.html (external link)
http://www.photoreview​.com.au …Visits-Oita-Canon-Factory (external link)

The most recent 7.3 magnitude earthquake was located 7 miles north of the city of Kumamoto. It was an unusually shallow earthquake, so the damage was quite severe, even more so than what is normally associated with a 7.3 magnitude earthquake. Assessments are still being made, but reports are coming in that significant tremors were felt as far east as the city of Beppu. Canon's facility is located just to the southeast of the city of Oita, perhaps just outside of where significant tremors were felt in Beppu. I've created a graphic below showing these locations.

It is quite possible that Canon's facility might be ok, but we won't know for another few days. What is known is that one of Sony's major manufacturing plants for CMOS camera sensors (and also the sensor used in Apple's iPhone) is located in Kumamoto and may have sustained serious damage. Sony is still assessing the situation and said they will release a report by Monday.

Condolences to all in Japan affected by this disaster.

Bryan

I wonder if Nikon is impacted, or Sigma and Tamron. I also wonder about the impact to non photography manufacturing.

.....and a bad one in Ecuador :(
This is getting personal, that ring of fire (geographically).
I think Iceland is rich with plates? and only 22 days away.
I'll sleep with one eye open.

Great research BPS as always and thanks for sharing.

Speaking of the ring of fire photographically. My 1Div has the
focusing ring of fire....is this doable in the 1DXii ??

Weather sealing. I live in Washington.

Haha, makes me remember the t-shirt with the text "You can easily tell when it's summer in Seattle. The rain feels a little warmer." :-)

I just noticed on B&H's site:

B&H will be closed starting at 7pm EDT on Thurs April 21. We will reopen at 10am on Sun May 1.

Now this may or may not have anything to do with anything. If the 1DxII shipping date is really May 1 then the real outbound date is going to be May 2 with overnight orders being delivered on May 3 at the earliest. From past experience B&H is going to have a lot of crates to unpack and orders to process when they return from holiday and they may or may not get orders out on Monday AM...

Looking forward to seeing what's what.

Meanwhile my 1Dx is soon headed to Canon for a clean and check pending sale... :)
