I don't think I've ever posted 100% crops before, but I think I did it correctly. Here is an image of one of my mutts at ISO 6400 and a 100% crop of that photo. I also pushed it one stop in ACR and posted that with a 100% crop. No other sharpening or noise reduction. These are with my 70-200 2.8 IS II at 70mm wide open at f2.8 and 1/125. Absolutely thrilled with the camera's quality.

Here's a shot at ISO 12800, using 70-200 2.8 IS II at 165mm, f4, 1/125. And the 100% crop. GREAT detail retention at ISO 12800. I can say that I'll actually use 12800, instead of setting the max ISO at 6400, as I have in the past. Plus, I'll never really have photos blown up as big as the 100% crop, so it would be silly for me to be overly critical at that level.

The show up fine for me.

Chet, you can see them, right?

Julian, not sure why you can't.

WB is something I never touch on the camera. I always leave it on AUTO and never really pay it any mind, since I shoot RAW and fine tune it in ACR anyway.

I understand all that but, does the sooc WB RAW file look pretty close before you even edit it in ACR? ;)

You'd do better to ask a PJ or Sports shooter who often has to work in jpeg...

Here is another at ISO 25600. I wouldn't have thought I'd use ISO 25600 much, but I guess I could. This is without any noise reduction. And I'm by no means a professional. Just a quick snap of my dog just now at ISO 25600, f2, 1/500 on my 35L. Still retains great detail, which for me, is more important than a lack of noise. Noise at ISO this high is expected.

It makes sense for PJ/Sports but, these newer cameras should be close to the WB represented SOOC in RAW. :)

Can you over expose by about a stop at 25,600 and show us the result?

i am part of the great unwashed who doesn't own a 1Dx, but i'll attempt to answer your questions.

ChrisGorabPhotography wrote in post #14708747 (external link)
I know it's worth the money I paid. That was never in question.

your first sentence reads like "I just paid $500 for these jeans, and i know they are totally worth it." others can find fully functional jeans at the gap for 1/10th the price. there are markets for both products.

ChrisGorabPhotography wrote in post #14708747 (external link)
And for others, I'm sure they will go back and forth to try and figure out if it's worth the money they're thinking about paying. Is all the negativity regarding price? I can't imagine the price is all that surprising. I get the feeling the negative comments regarding the body are about the quality of the camera itself, which is silly, since all of the negative comments are coming from those that don't own the camera. But I guess anyone that bought it will post positive comments anyway.

the price i'm sure has a lot to do w/ it, but i don't see people knocking camera qualities. where do you read that? i'm sure there's a fair amount of jealousy involved from some non-buyers, just as there's justification from some buyers who have very little experience w/ the camera so far.

ChrisGorabPhotography wrote in post #14708747 (external link)
We know that the 1DX has better image quality and features than any other bodies to date.

really? how do we know that? how do you measure image quality? if you were to take a 5D3 and 1Dx and shoot the same subject w/ the same lighting and lens, do you think you'd pass an ABX test?

ChrisGorabPhotography wrote in post #14708747 (external link)
Are people really getting worked up about whether it's 1 stop better, 2 stops better, 2/3 stops better? Have people been on the fence about buying and opted against buying because it's only 1-2 stops better than the 5DIII? It's better.



sounds a lot like that buyer justification i mentioned earlier. and no, it's not 2 stops better.

ChrisGorabPhotography wrote in post #14708747 (external link)
But really, it's just a different camera. The image quality is better (how much is subjective) but there are also many other better features, the most significant being the AF tracking superiority.

i wouldn't say that's the most significant, as it's really hard to adequately measure how well it works and what sort of keepers the 1Dx would yield where the 5D3 would fail. the key distinguishing features i see are fps, spot metering linked to AF point, robust build and weather sealing.

ChrisGorabPhotography wrote in post #14708747 (external link)
Some will probably say it's not worth it for wedding photogs, and that may be the case if budgets are keeping them from buying 2 of these, but if they were the same price as the 5DIII, I'm sure there would be no argument. If that's the case, why knock the 1DX for anything other than price?... which in my opinion (and not my wife's) is pretty worth it.

i had pre-ordered one of these bodies in December. i was totally sold on it. then the 5D3 specs and price came out, and then the camera actually was available for use, long before the 1Dx was. at almost half the price, it hits nearly all the things I want my camera to do as is a large improvement from the 5D2. i live at high ISO, so i could certainly use the incrementally better high ISO performance of the 1Dx but there was no way i could justify the cost, to me or my wife. others certainly feel different, and that's fine. people can spend their cash how they like. hell, some people even drive H2s.
