Please don't take this the wrong way, but if you have to ask such a question, you may already have your answer.

The headphone jack could be rendered useless for people who are not interested in videography so it may or may not be an advantage.

Quieter silent mode also depends on the type of photography. Good for wildlife shots. Pretty useless for studio work.

Hello I am an owner of a Canon 5d III and I am thinking about a Canon 1DX could someone some differences and why I should get one over my mark III?

Are you thinking of selling your Mark III, or this is just a hypothetical question?
If it is, then you have not used your Mark III enough or have money to burn.
I have the Mark III and cannot justify the price difference.

But to answer your 2 questions.

1. 1dx vs 5d Mark III : Difference is $3315 more.
2. Why should you choose? : Why not? Jokes aside : ruggedness, slightly higher dynamic range, slightly cleaner images, faster fps. For me : spot metering linked to AF would be one, dual CF slots, better weather proofing and a vertical hold that does not flex, view finder shutter, would be reasons to think about it. But I probably would just keep the difference and use it on a down payment for a 400 2.8 is II.
But from what I hear from reviews on the net, the 1Dx is close to a perfect package than ever for a pro body. Of course the 5D Mark III is one the most usable cameras I have ever used (my last one being the 5D)! But it is not a pro camera in canon's target camera scheme.

After trying both cameras and purchasing Two 5D3's here is what the Real world differences that most of us will see...the rest is just Little belles and whistles

1. Price-- 5D3-- Huge advantage over the 1Dx
2. IQ and Image Quality.. Its a tie. Though i think the 1Dx colors look flat SOTC
3. Speed- 1Dx
4. Af System-- Big Time advantage 1DX. Facial recognition is a huge advantage. 5D3 system is very good and no slouch
5.ISO-- 1Dx has a stop over the 5D3-- I definately dont see 2 as claimed But is a huge advantage over a 5D3
6. Build.. goes to 1Dx big time.The camera is a tank.

My opinion... 1Dx is the best camera on the market and worth every penny canon is asking for it.

Additionally-- and probably the big deciding factor for most of us. The 5D3 is the 2nd best camera currently on the market. For most of us, myself included, while the advantages of the 1Dx are obvious, Most photographers Do Not need them. The 5D3 meets or exceeds all my needs so i purchased 2 instead of one 1Dx. For wedding and portrait photographers, that decision is probably a more prudent business decision with the current state on the wedding industry.

Dont take this wrong. I would love to have a 1Dx... but is a drooling want and not a need for our business. Both cameras have changed the game for wedding photographers.

The 1DX wins in each, and it should for the price.

Whether or not a particular person uses the advantage doesn't make a difference when stating general advantages. That's possible for almost any advantage listed for each camera. I could say a lot of people never really need 12fps so thats not an advantage of the 1dx.

Just keeping with the spirit of POTN. ;)

I have much less tact in real life, I wish I had real life mods that would watch what I say and do outside of the forums. :D
