Working with the Canon EOS 1DX alongside with the Nikon D4
Nov 30, 2012

For these of you that may find it useful or interesting I have just bought a Canon EOS 1DX which I now use alongside with my Nikon D4.

I appreciate when other photographers' share their experiences so even though I find it very boring to write about equipment I decided to share some thoughts.

I have been using Nikon for the last 8 years and I have been very satisfied with the system. Unfortunately I have had some issues with the Autofocus and that is why I will now work with the two systems to see which one is best for my needs.

3 days ago I visited the Canon headquarter in Denmark to pick up my new EOS 1DX together with a 70-300mm 4-5,6 L. 
For my latest trip to Dovrefjell in Norway see: http://mortenhilmer.com/2012/nature-photography/the-musk-oxen-of-dovre/ Canon borrowed me a similar kit and the new 600mm f/4 and after going through several thousand images I can say that so far I am very pleased with the results. 
I am really amazed by the low weight and the sharpness of this 600mm. For the last few years I haven't used my tripod a lot because I prioritize to travel light and to be mobile. With this 600mm I was able to shoot handheld without to many "hand aches":)
