Seriously tricky trying to pick a few shots for you guys as I took waaaaay too many just for a change. Our last race weekend of the season, rain / mist / fog / cold and a tiny bit of sunshine - typical UK race weekend lol.

I took the 1DxII out of its element yesterday to try some landscapes. The resolution definitely hurt when I pulled the files into Photoshop, but the dynamic range is looking excellent so far! I was surprised to see that there were quite a few more hot pixels (green and red) than I see from my 5Ds.

The ability to switch from shooting birds at 14fps, to shooting 120 fps 1080p video, to shooting wide-angle landscape photos with the same body is definitely awesome.

p.s. - To follow up on my earlier complaints about lacking features: I emailed back and forth with Chuck W. from Canon USA earlier this week, and he was very helpful answering my questions, but I definitely didn't get the impression that I'll be seeing any of my requested features in a firmware updates.

If you have hot pixels, you should get that body in to Canon ASAP! That shouldn't happen so soon into it's life

Sorry – I should clarify what I meant by "hot pixels," because I think I definitely left out some important details and that was certainly a mistake on my part. The red and green pixels that I saw were ONLY visible after pushing the CR2 file to its absolute limit. Typically with my long exposures, I expose approximately for the sky (or perhaps even far, far underexpose the sky in this particular case,) and just cross my fingers that the foreground has enough shadow detail to pull out later on. It's definitely not the most professional tactic, but it's worked pretty well for me so far. Because of that, I don't fault the body itself for the red and green pixels that showed up – what body can be expected to push 4-5 stops in the shadows and still retain anything, let alone the great details seen in my final image? The only reason I mentioned it, is that in the same situation (as ridiculous as it may be,) I feel like I've seen far fewer "hot" pixels in my 5Ds than I saw in this single frame from the 1DxII – I'm accustomed to only seeing standard monochromatic noise when pushing the RAW files to the max.

Edit: I should probably also reiterate that this was a 10 minute exposure. At this point I'm effectively comparing unicorn blood to an only slightly less-effective other unicorn blood.

Interesting people associate landscapes with the need for megapixels. I think the IQ of the 1DX2 outweighs any perceived loss in megapixels.

I think the resolution point is valid if the intention (or even requirement) is to print/display BIG, where every pixel matters in detail. So I think everyone's needs are different.

At the same time, one could argue that it's the content/composition of the photograph and what emotions the said image triggers for the viewer that's more important than any pixel. :lol:

In conclusion, it's all subjective. :D

Thank you for taking the time to delve deeper into the explanation. I must say, I've never done a 10-minute exposure so I'll take your word on which body is best for that haha. Appreciate the screenshots.
