Got the 1Dx III yesterday and I did play around a bit here some first observations:   The good: Camera is really fast in everything, scrolling to images, menu etc.. is faster than the 1

got the 1dx III - Shot a few projects with it. It's very nice. Highlight rolloff is my favorite part. 10bit ipb 60fps won't playback on a 10 core iMac pro. same for all-i 24fps. that part sucks. 

The only tool here is Peter McKinnon thinking he needs a 2400Mbit codec for YouTube vlogs.

EIS does not seem to work as good as on the C500 II. But otherwise it looks like a very impressive camera to me. I do wonder though why there‘s no C-Log 2 and C-Log 3...

I also did notice that is not super stable but it is hard to compare if not using the same focal length,k the same way to carry the camera and also very important the same light situation. Also he does not use the enhanced because he says nothing changes but at least with the M6 II the difference between the two mode is big. 

The 5.5 and 4k seem very detailed and looks good.
On the 120fps I'm not so sure is an improvement over the MkII….. if you compare the same pier scene the normal 1080 with the 1080 120fps there is a very visible drop in quality. Not unexpected but I do not agree to his comment that the 120fps is great. Still probably one of the best FF 120fps but for sure not great.

What is the raw footage curve then? Can’t you select your desired log curve? I’ve never used the C200 but I thought there was an option to export out Clog2 or 3 from the raw files? 

That option is in the Canon RAW software & supported NLE’s like Resolve.

However there is on C200 a CLog3 option in camera for MP4.

Does appear 1DX3 is Clog only for now.

Yes, if it works like on the C200, that should be the case for raw footage. But I was talking about the encoded formats. I think Canon left out Clog2 on the C200 (for non-raw shooting) because it is designed for 10bit files... The C300 II has it. And it is very, very flat. For certain scenarios it would be usefull on the 1DX III too I‘d say.

Interesting. I work with the C300ii quite a bit. CLog2 is closest to the Alexa. It creates very soft and filmic looking highlights. 

That being said, Clog3 is a lot cleaner and generally easier to work with, unless you’re shooting into bright sources.

I haven‘t yet given up all hope for a firmware update that brings a 10bit codec to the C200 (that might bring CLog2 too). But yeah... probably never gonna happen. 
But if the C200 had that, I think I‘d be served for the next 5 years...
