| p.1 #14 · 1dx vs 1d3 real life Photos (i wil upgrade this year) |
I've owned the 1Ds MIII since 2008, and the 1DX since mid 2012.
I am not seeing a 3x battery advantage of the 1Ds III over the 1DX. I don't see any appreciable difference in battery life shooting photos - obviously video is not in this comparison.
So...never owned a 1D MIII, are they substantially different in terms of battery life over the 1Ds MIII? Is that perhaps why you see such a huge difference?
You can get ~3000 shots from a 1D III, 1D X is rated at 1150 by Canon, but I'm not sure about real world, but it's supposed to be worse than 1D IV which was itself a fair bit worse than 1D III, although still excellent. Don't know about the 1Ds III, but wouldn't have thought it would be much worse than 1D III. Maybe Canon is being too conservative, but I get about the rated number of shots for my 5D III at least.
