  1. Official specs apparently.  


    Equipped with back-illuminated “X-Trans CMOS 4” sensor with newly developed effective pixel number of approximately 26.1 million pixels (Low pass filter less)

    High-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4”

    By increasing the number of phase difference pixels to about 4 times the current ratio, the image plane phase difference AF area is expanded to the entire screen area (about 100%)

    Extended the low illuminance limit of phase difference AF from conventional -1 EV to -3 EV

    4K / 60P 4: 2: 0 Compatible with 10-bit SD card recording in the camera. 4K / 60P 4: 2: 2 Also supports 10bit HDMI output

    “Sports finder mode” function is newly installed. Blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting at the maximum speed of 30 frames per second is possible within a frame equivalent to 16.6 million pixels (1.25 times crop)

    Newly equipped “pre-shooting” function that starts shooting from the time when the shutter button is pressed halfway and records the shot image by pressing the shutter button all the way

    “Monochrome adjustment” function is newly added to “Film simulation”

    “Color Chrome Effect” function is first installed as “X series”

    USB Type adopts Type-C (USB 3.1 Gen 1) standard

    Standard ISO: 160 to 12800 (extended ISO: 80/100/125/25600/51200)

    Continuous: About 11 frames / sec (mechanical shutter), about 30 frames / sec (electronic shutter, 1.25 times crop)

    EVF: 0.5 type organic EL finder Approx. 3.69 million dots 0.75 times

    Rear liquid crystal: 3.0 type approximately 1.04 million dots 3 way tilt type touch panel liquid crystal

    Film simulation: 16 modes (including ETERNA)

    Wi-Fi · Bluetooth 4.2 installed

    Battery: NP-W126S

    Number of storable pictures: approx. 390 pictures (in normal mode)

    Size: 132.5 × 92.8 × 58.8 mm

    Weight: 539 g (including battery and SD memory card), 489 g (body only)

    Color: Black / Silver

    Reservation start date: September 6, 2018

    Scheduled to correspond to movie shooting with hybrid log gamma method and “Simultaneous film simulation / F-Log simultaneous output” by firmware update through 2018

    The article says the problem has been mitigated on the X-T20 but nowhere does it state definitively that the issue has been addressed on later models of the X-T2.

    I had the x-t2 and it also exhibited the purple grid artifacts but after I sent it in the sensor was replaced and I never had the issue again. I read many similar reports online of other early models having sensor changes when sent in for repairs. I suspect a quiet fix/redesign was implemented when the issue was brought to light

    I just made a surprising discovery with my 23mm WR. Turning the focus ring at different speeds does not affect the distance the focus travels. This is highly unusual for a fly-by-wire lens. What other lenses act like this? My 18-55mm and 35mm f1.4 don't.

    Tested the 16mm 1.4 and it's the same too. Speed doesn't affect the distance. Will check the 56mm when it arrives today

  4. I bought the Lexar 256gb CFast X 3400 from the seller on EBay. I used it mainly for video on my 1dxii but then this week gone, while shooting a graduation, the card failed. It would not load up or reformat in camera or in computer. I called Lexar who said they would replace it with the newer model x3500 which is recommended for the 1dxii. 


    I'd suggest only using the x3400 Lexar cards for video on the 1dxii or better still just get the x3500 and have peace of mind. 

  5. I'm selling my 4 week New Canon 1DX Mark II. Selling due to purely personal reason. The camera is a fantastic camera and is still mint. It comes with the unused Sandisk 64gb Cfast card and reader. I bought it from Calumet Photographic in London and have receipts. I'm also including a spare battery which costs £150. Total cost of system is £5350

    Price: £4850 

    I also have a Canon 50mm 1.2L selling  £720











  6. The test seem to confirm what the chart i previously posted suggests; that the 1DC has a slightly better DR at higher iso with the appearance of less colour noise due to more contrast in the 1DXII.

    In the lower iso range where the 1DXii has more dynamic range, theoretically, shooting cinestyle -1EV with HTP and bringing up shadows in post would give you about the same DR as 1DC C-Log (1/3 - 1/2 stop less). If you get another chance @Luke Mason  i'd be very interested to see if this is in fact the case

    Where are you getting these DR numbers for the 1DX II and why would you assume that the 1DC has a "weaker sensor"? In fact, most of the tests we have seen show equal performance, if not an edge for the older sensor as in the DPreview article already cited on this forum:

    http://***URL removed***/news/8090146652/canon-eos-1d-x-mark-ii-studio-tests

    After all, the 1DX/1DC sensor has larger photosites than the second generation (6.95 vs. 6.65 microns) and can theoretically achieve a greater signal-to-noise ratio. Perhaps processing advancements and the gapless micro-lens sensor technology can make up for the smaller photosites of the 1DX II so as to even out the noise performance between the cameras, but it is doubtful that it could be much better.

    From what I have seen, the 1DX II video footage performs exactly the same as the 1DC in neutral no matter what you do with those superficial picture profile settings, which means that it has 9 stops of DR and a lot of crushed blacks and nearly-clipped highlights:

    The 1DC on the other hand will give you a very different look with better DR, smoother roll-off, and much lower contrast, not to mention the wider and richer color gamut that goes with C-Log when grading the footage in post:





    "Weaker" in the sense that the new sensor is ADC design, and having less noise in the shadows.

    Anyway, until we see some direct comparisons and see some footage that hasn't been sharpened either in camera or post we won't really know for sure. Numbers are in some cases meaningless.


  8. The Canon 1DC may well have better dynamic range in clog but I believe the advantage may only be a stop at best with the 1DXii already having a 1 1/2-2 stop dynamic range advantage at base iso, and a further 1 stop gain shooting in cinestyle -1 ev htp, which adds up to around 3 stops. This compares favourably to the 1DC and its 2-3 stop gain using canon log from a weaker sensor. 

    What I'd really like to see is a direct comparison.
