GAA Matches have resumed here in Ireland after the easing pf some restrictions, there is cap on the Numbers in a venue at the match of 200 in total including players officials and spectators. This is one from a club senior hurling game last night. Great to be back on the sideline again.

This phase shall pass as well. Hang in there mate. Just few more months of precaution and let’s hope there is light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, by this time next year, things are back to normal, albeit a new normal.

Hello all, I just purchased a used 1DX Mkii , with very little use. Under 24k exposures, pristine condition. I think I'm panicking a bit however. On the attached images, there are spots on the outer edges, I know that they can very likely be dust. Is there any sign that this might be oil splatter? I'm a bit hesitant to try to clean the sensor if it is oil. Have any other other owners had an an issue with splatter? If so, what did you do to solve it?

No need to panic! The 1DX2 is known for its sensor spots. Early on, they can be a mix of oil and dust. Sensor cleaning gets rid of them easily. At your 24K clicks, any oil splatter is probably done. But the sensor will still get dusty especially when using zoom lenses.

Sometimes I clean the sensor myself, but once a year I try to send my 1DX2 to Canon for a checkup and sensor cleaning.

Also, if I take a lot of photos that have sky in them, I use Lightroom to remove the spots in one photo and then copy the spot removal to all the other images. It's pretty quick, easy, and effective. Do this before cropping any of the images. I don't know what would happen if you did it after cropping some of them.

Hope this helps. BTW - the 1DX2 is an awesome camera. I'm sure you'll enjoy it very much!

Don’t worry about this. One sensor clean will take care of this. Since it’s well past 20k actuations, there shouldn’t be anymore splatter happening. I have over 60k on mine, but never had any issues.

My experience with the 1dx line.

My first second hand copy of the 1dx had severe oilsplatter.
i sold it, because the problem was still there after 75000 clicks.

My second copy ,another second hand 1dx had a very little oilsplatter , but not noticible at f8.
Cleaning one time in 4 or five weeks ,was not a big deal for me.
I shoot a couple of years with it , and the pictures had superb sharpness and a lot of detail.

The third one was a second hand copy of the 1DX II with 25000 clicks.
This one had also severe oilsplatter, and it didn´t get any better after 65000 clicks.
The dots where visible even at F 7.1, and after i cleaned it ,in 500 shots a mess again.
Sold it two weeks ago , and i will never touch a 1DX again.

Some have less issues with their device ,but it still stays a gamble to get a good copy or not.

Canon has nothing done in these years to clear the problem.

And if anyone thinks they cleared the problem with the 1dxIII ,look at the video.

IMO unacceptable for what Canon called their top of the line DSLRs, with a very high pricetag

This is a function of lubrication for the mechanical shutter as well as the mirror to move at 12-16 FPS. You've got moving parts, you need lubrication. The camera was built for action, not necessarily super-clean-images.

Is it a pain in the butt? Yes. But if you're shooting sports professionally, you're likely shooting wide-open (to maximize shutter speed) and less likely to have artifacts show up. But if you were shooting at smaller apertures... splatterama exposes its ugly head.

It's a trade off.

It does suck tremendously when I shoot at airshows and propeller planes. But aside from that, it's not a big issue for me at all when I'm shooting action.

I don't know what lens you use for airshows, but I use a 100-400 II. On bright days, I add a 2-stop or 3-stop ND filter to get the f-stop back to 7 or 8 rather than 20-ish.

lol, I never bothered to grab myself an ND filter for that diameter.

but yes, the ND would easily remedy that. :)

Thanks everyone for easing my anxiety and helping me understand about the shutter and the splatter. This is truly an an amazing camera and so far I'm really enjoying learning all it can do. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to post an image here in this thread ( other than the one of the clouds, lol).

Don’t be afraid to share. This is a helpful. I have learned lots over the years. I have asked many questions and have been helped by several members. I even ask POTN members specific questions using DM, and 9/10 times I get a response.
