Excellent review! Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences!
We are all different photographers. We shoot landscape, wildlife, sports, weddings, news, etc... the list goes on. Canon's answer for all of us is their new, one size fits all, pro-camera, the Canon EOS-1D X. But, trying to satisfy the masses is a daunting task.
THIS is what we ALL need to understand that Fred summed up in one sentence.
From Canon's perspective, they have a unibody design that tries to meet everybody's needs - all photo aspects and even video with their EOS-1DC. No more multi-body issues from design, manufacturing and support. There is no way Canon (or any manufacturer) can make a camera designed to exactly what each of us want...and be at a price that each of us would agree to pay!
The fact is, a camera is just a tool. One that we use to make our jobs easier, but ultimately, it's our job to wield our tools to form and fashion the end result to our liking. And in about 2-3 years time, the next new model will be out with newer, better features that we'll individually love or hate.
From our perspective, as unique photographers - it is what it is. This is Canon's pinnacle flagship camera, a culmination of all their best technology based on their history of experience. We need to use it to it's ability for what we do, or use something else. I know that... thanks to Fred's web site... I see amazing photos with just about any/every camera out there, so I know it's not the camera that makes a photo... it's the photographer!
Again, Fred, thanks for the honest review. It should help plenty of us know what to expect with the latest and greatest!
