First, your not going to notice much of a difference in IQ, AF, or dynamic range. The 5D MK II does amazing for wedding photographers in low-light and large prints, and the MK III only improves on that. With that aside, it may be more beneficial to consider the other items that will impact you as the primary user of the camera. Build The 1D has more ...

Canon has introduced a new feature coined EOS iTR AF - Intelligent Tracking and Recognition Auto Focus on the Canon EOS-1D X DSLR. The camera attempts to detect the locations of faces and focus on these in the scene or alternatively it can identify subjects of a particular color such as in sporting events for example. Face detection is given the highest ...

When Canon released the first 1D, APS-h was the simply largest sensor they could get away with, economically. They followed it up with the 1Ds which was full frame. However the 1Ds was slower than the 1D, and offered less reach with telephoto lenses so was less popular with sports and wildlife photographers. For this reason canon choose to continue offering ...

The Canon 1D X has a lower resolution for the same sensor-size which means its pixels are bigger. This gives it an edge in term of noise-per pixel, so if you are looking for pure pixel quality, go for the 1D X. The 5D Mark III on the other hand is lighter and allows you to print slightly larger due to its higher pixel count. These cameras are otherwise very ...

As with just about any camera, a buffer will be used to hold a number of shots which are written to the card. Once the buffer fills, the frame rate slows. Even with the fastest cards today, previous generation cameras can't offload their buffer fast enough to sustain a high FPS indefinitely. So, this isn't a new problem to the 1D X or D4, though the speed ...

Canon 1D X Photo size of this camera should be somewhere in range of 20-30 mb, and with 12 frames per second that sums up to need to write down 300mb/s, or if we consider that the camera has dual card slot, this would amount to 150 mb/s per card (does this work this way?). Is there anything on market that would sustain such a write speed? Short: ...

Everything in product design is a comprise and Canon wanted to provide a solution to combine high-quality and high-speed for sports photographer. It did so with the 1D series. Its APS-H sensor and relatively large pixels make it sensitive to light and possible to shoot at high-speeds, up to 10 FPS with the 1D Mark IV. At the same time, the full-frame 1Ds ...

Early reports from 1DX users are that low light performance is better with a 2/3 stop improvement over the 5D markIII. ISO 100 performance is also slightly better with less banding than the 5D mark III. There is no significant improvement in dynamic range. It remains to be seen what the colour performance is like and whether Canon have sacrificed colour ...

Having just done a simple search on Google, I've found a plethora of websites detailing the key features, benefits and disadvantages and comparison charts between a wide range of Canon EOS models, including the 1DXGet creative with your search terms on Google (or any other search engine for that matter) and you'll have all the information you could possibly ...

The EOS 1Ds Mark III is Canon's top-of-the-line full-frame DSLR: 21MP; 45 AF points; dual DIGIC III processors. The EOS 1D Mark IV (that's 1D, not 1Ds) uses a 28.1 × 18.7mm sensor which is smaller than a 36 x 24mm full-frame, but bigger than the 22.3 × 14.9 mm sensor in the Rebel, 60D, 7D, etc. The main tradeoff with the 1D Mark IV vs. the 1Ds is that ...

What do you use now? Do you use the grip? I went from 1v (film) to 5D to 1DIV. I moved back to the 1D series because I like the feel of it better. I shoot with a grip, and I'd prefer not to have a grip that can loosen at inconvenient times. Always made me nervous shooting in a slight drizzle with the 5D because of the space between the body and the ...

Well, on paper something might seem better but really they're different tools for different needs. The biggest one I can think of is the MkIV isn't full frame, it's an APS-H instead, this does have a knock on effect on specific types of photography (I'm not a great believer in all kinds of photography need full frame, but it certainly helps with landscapes ...

I'd recommend to read the preview posted on DPReview (http://www.dpreview.com/articles/5149972341/canon-eos-1d-x-overview).
