[Review] EOS 1D-X By Andy Rouse

Well known wildlife photographer Andy Rouse is among the first (and selected few) to have had an EOS-1D X in his hands. This is more a kind of field-test, less a lab-setting based investigation of camera performance. Auto-focus is tested and described in a comprehensive way. Face detection is also put under stress, with an owl. While I suggest you have a look at the review on your own, i quote some excerpts from the conclusion:

The AF system I found to be astoundingly accurate […] it could lock onto anything […]. The images I have shown here are all razor sharp, again I was surprised to see so many in a sequence with such fast action. I’m quite happy to say that after my limited testing I can see that the AF system is probably the best I have ever used. Yes it is quite complex, but […] for 99% of you they will be fine.

[…] noise performance. I have never seen a Canon file like it, at the kind of ISO’s I like to shoot at, the image quality is great, detail is intense and the noise is not an issue.

For the time being the EOS-1D X can be pre-ordered for $6,799.00 at Adorama (click here)B&H (click here)Amazon US (click here) and DigitalRev (click here).
