Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

Wouldn't it be neat to see a modular system of ordering what you want. The F3 and FS100 are already so boxy looking that looks do not matter. If you want USB get the USB port, if you need the HD SDI get that module. If you do not want the their lower resolution monitor don't order it and use your own. I wonder what kind of information comes off the sensor, In the Navy our radar systems had an information bus, you could attatch anything to it as long as it understood the language.

Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

As far as a bus, look at Intel's Thunderbolt used on Apple machines. A interface like that on a video camera would be great.

We'll never have access to data off the sensor. We would be horrified at all the dead pixels.

Yep, and to me that's one of the most annoying quirks of the 5D2 -- that it won't record with 5x/10x engaged. Anyone knows if the 1Dx will behave the same way?

To answer my own question -- I just got an email from Dan Chung regarding this:
"With the firmware they showed us it was the same as 5d."

By the way, Chris, do we have to wait until the camera ships (in March) before the 1Dx gets its own forum? I'm asking because I think it would be nice to have some discussion about this camera prior to its release in order to maybe inspire/influence Canon to get its video right, e.g., to take full advantage of the camera's rumored 355 mbps bitrate, etc.

Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

I just looked up the 1DX on Amazon, and here's the message they have put along with their availability notice:

"The EOS-1D X has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. These devices are not and may not be offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained."

Don't think I've ever seen an FCC message of this sort for an announced camera.

Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

I have seen it before, but only on press releases. The reason why you're seeing
it on Amazon is due to the unusually long (and for Canon, highly uncharacteristic)
lead time between the press release and the anticipated ship date. It is not all that
uncommon for press releases to be made prior to an electronics product receiving
FCC authorization. In this case, the long lead up to shipping has resulted in the
disclaimer making its way onto Amazon. The FCC process is standard operating
procedure and there isn't anything unusual going on here, except for the fact
that the camera was announced about half a year before it's ready to ship.

Yea, that makes sense, (although my first thought was that this might had something to do with the 1DX now recording up to 30 min. videos..).

Well, to me the lack of magnifying during recording is the most annoying of the two -- especially since I suspect that a record engaged 5x/10x magnifying would be easier to fix than a clean HDMI.

It's been 2 years since the previous model. I would have thought they'd fix it in the top of the line model if it were easy. And of they couldn't fix in the top of the line, it would be a surprise if they fix it in the next Mk II which is the cut down prosumer version. A pleasant surprise however.

Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

Apparently the 1DX will have quite a bit of extra horsepower, so hopefully it won't be that difficult to add such a feature. And since it's easier to estimate the framing of a shot than to estimate its correct focus (especially with the shallow DOF of a full-frame camera), an implementation of 5x/10x magnification during recording would be a VERY welcomed feature.

Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

I see that the 1Dx LCD is 3.2" vs 3" on 5D, 1D, etc... I assume that none of the existing LCD viewfinders will work on the 1Dx then or will some do? I heard a Canon rep on one 1Dx promo video saying that the camera has phantom power on the mic input allowing for a wider range of microphones to be used on this camera. Does anyone have more detaisl on this? I like the Q menu and controls that are available while filming in Live View. The silent and touch sensitive mode for dial wheel on the back is pretty slick too.

Cheers,

I'd love to see color peaking too but at this point, any focus assist function will be most welcomed.

Re: Canon USA Introduces EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera

I hope Canon adds a headphone jack on the final release of the 1Dx. This is a serious oversight. That itself and a few other crucial features found on Nikon's D4 make it quite a better choice for pro video. Not to mention that the D4 is $1,000 cheaper.
