They did tell me that there is another shipment arriving Wednesday. They will have 3 cameras but they are all taken.

I guess I should make some calls tomorrow and get an update. I've never waited this long for anything in my life, I hope its going to be worth it.

I'm with CPS as well, how did you do your order? Provide the retailer with your CPS number?

Yes. But not a camera to "upgrade" to for you and me


Not for me, since the 5D2 does beautiful work already for my photography and I don't need the higher speed or beefier (read, "heavier") construction of the 1DX for my work. For those who need such features in their cameras, the 1DX looks like it will be a very fine camera, indeed. (If I needed a new body right now, it would be a 5D3. If I were a Nikon shooter, I would be looking at a D800.)

The whole business about poor low ISO DR performance is largely a forumtographer meme that is almost entirely irrelevant to real photography.

The entire digital photography camera market seems to be firing on all cylinders right now. A bunch of manufacturers are making really excellent cameras, lenses, and other gear - and not just Canon and Nikon at this point. We see very interesting and compelling developments in the rangefinder-style cameras as well, great stuff is happening in the MF format space, and more. Photographers today are more empowered by and less limited by their equipment than at any point in the history of the medium. It is a great time move beyond the forumtographer mode of searching for and fretting about this and that little difference in specs, to select a camera, and get on with the work of making compelling photographs using this gear.

Hard to believe you saying this..even my grand kids know the differences between 10D and 30D

Great post, Dan! Love the "forumtographer" moniker. He's posting this stuff on multiple forums. Clearly, very proud.
Three pages on this topic, so far, and not one actual photograph posted since the beginning of page one.

You also seem very proud. Proud to turn down someone who provided an answer to a question asked by many photographers.

Nope. Just looking for real world, visual examples...since, you know...photography is a visual medium.

How does it do on amp glow at longer exposures? How does the 5D3 do compared to the 5D2?

cool. thanks for the post. Nothing surprising here. given 1dx was announced before 5d3, I would have been surprised if the sensor showed any significant improvement in DR compared to 5d3.

Well, the BEST example would be black frame. Can't wait to see one.

Sure it is irrelevant to many shots, but it's also plenty easy to find shot after shot after shot where it would be 100% entirely relevant. People don't actual bring it up just for fun you know, it's because they meet up plenty often scenarios where they are like man if only....

It is absolutely is not almost 100% entirely irrelevant to real photography. For some that may be true, but for plenty it's not. Part of the reason it also seems less relevant to some is because they have been so trained to not even imaging taking certain types of photos that they don't even notice what they are missing any more.

Maybe there are no photos because this topic is on shadow recovery dr tests? What did you expect when you clicked the link? A gallery of portrait shots?

and if you simply must have a few photos in every thread, then here:

As you should also know it's pretty darn hard to compare using real world shots cameras shooting different subjects under different lighting at different times with raw converters cooking the books differently and pretty easy (and much quicker and much less waste of a time) and repeatable to do a quick measurement test.

Probably me, but perhaps you. Who knows. Anyway, I better stop responding to any of these people, as you predicted, it will just turn into another mess. I shouldn't have responded at all.

Anyway, it's a pretty awesome sports cam to say the least. Crazy fps and response the nice new AF and insane high iso performance. low iso DR is the only negative, everything else seems to be pretty much perfect about it.

Good work Perry. Got my 5D III a few weeks ago through work.
