    Comments about Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

    Could not justify the cost for a long time. From taking it out of the box three months ago to now, I've had not one second thought. I've made some of my favorite photographs with this camera. The in camera double exposure feature will be a treat for anyone who enjoys getting weird. Also, the Intelligent AF Servo keeps anything that moves nice and tack sharp.

    Comments about Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

    In 2013 I wanted to go from Nikon D700 Nikon D4, D4 and Canon after testing 5D Mark III Nikon bag I sold all nervous and I migrated from Canon. Since 2014 Canon 1DX and I think they said trwbui: Canon 1D dream. I love this camera and he loves wedding photographer where there is little light and ... the rest is science. Are wedding photographer and I can say that yes, 1DX best and worth the money difference to 5D Mark III. Sorry for my English but I had to say.

        Comments about Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

        I held off on buying this for a while. I thought the 5d mk iii would meet my needs photographing wildlife. When I stood next to fellow photographers using the 1DX, I couldn't believe the results they were getting compared to the ones I was getting. The focus, the speed, the customization - nothing compares to this beast! I will never look back.

          Comments about Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

          I like this camera so much that I needed to buy another one. I use this camera mostly for Sports Photography. I am totally satisfied with this camera and the only thing that I will say negative is that it can be a little on the heavy side after a couple games.

              Comments about Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

              This is no point and shoot camera. Once you read and understand the programming of the camera it's self.. You won't believe the pictures..I had to get used to shooting with a full frame camera. The depth of field isn't there in sports shooting.. But what you end up with are pictures that are SI magazine covers.. I had read that in one of the earlier reviews and it's very true.. If you can afford it, rent one and see what it's all about.It takes a little time to get used to.. Try it with different lenses and write down the settings until you get used to everything..

              Comments about Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only):

              I decided to upgrade to the 1D X when my 1D mkIII was stolen. I shoot photos and video and there is almost no reason to bring out my other body; 5D mkii anymore. This thing is the perfect hybrid, full frame, high burst fps for sports, great low light(web usable up to 25k iso), and 60fps in some video modes.

              I bought another 1D mkiii for a backup but can only see myself using it in case I'm on location and need to use an Eye-Fi card to transfer to my phone.

                I use this camera for shooting sporting events and feature shots for our local newspaper. I use a variety of lens from a Canon 16 - 35 2.8 to a Canon 300 2.8 as well as the canon extenders. I have had excellent experiences with this camera and this is my second 1DX. The only complaint I have is the weight of the camera but this is a minor issue.

                    Amazing color and sharpness straight out of the camera, even when using the old beat up 13 year old lenses. Love everything about it...okay except the price but I will get over that aspect because seriously it is a great camera even if it did clear out my savings account.

                      The camera is quick to respond and easy to set up the features for personal preference. Its a little pricy but I don't think its overpriced given the features and ease of use. The only negative is the weight, that said, I would be concerned if it wasn't and made of light weight plastic and cheap alloys.

                          It's really amazing what this camera can do if you're a fan of available light because you can shoot in almost any light. I learned on a 1D MkIIN and compared to the 9 year old model this camera's features are light years ahead. She's a tank and as a former Marine I like the durable construction of the 1D models and the 1DX is the only camera I'll ever need.

                            This IDX is as close as you can get today to a medium format camera in regards to image quality, excellent in every fashion. The best combo out right now is owning this camera and a 5DMIII unless you can afford two 1DX's. The 1.6 and the 1.3 crop sensors does nothing except hinder your image quality, stay away from these camera's if you can afford to do so. The 1D Mark IV will not messure up to the image quality and will not track your image as well as 5D Mark III, so don't try to justify it, old technology, sell it. Canon has not dropped the price on these camera's since bringing them to market, their that good. The 1DX is Godzilla and the 5D MIII is it's son.

                                I did not even have time to read my manual before church called for me to do photos for them. Photos look great, but I can do better now that I have read the manual. I can not wait to get out with nature and do some of my favorite photos.

                                  I've waited a long time to get my hands on Canon's top performer. I traded two of my 5DM3's to purchase this "beast". It feels good in the hand, love the speed and professional "extras". This was worth the investment as I also own the 1DM4. Now I own the best of both worlds. Thank you Canon for creating such a monumental body. You won't be disappointed.
