I currently own a Canon T6I that was purchased before I started getting into the hobby. I'm now looking to upgrade, and I'm in between the 1Dx used, 5D Mark IV or 5DSR. I've read so much my brain is fried on what to get. I'm 90% sure I'm going with the 1dx but wondering what some other thoughts are?. A small part of me is having trouble with the 18MP of the 1Dx. I like taking photos of wildlife, cars, and airplanes among other things. Money isn't an issue, but the 1Dx 2 is out of the question...

Hi Guys I recently purchased a 200-400 2nd hand and was toying with the idea of getting a 7D mark ii as a trial to see if I achieved better results with crop camera and no extender as opposed to full frame 1Dx with extender. Also extra reach of 1.6 would be handy. 560mm FOV. v 640mm FOV. I would struggled on low light days I am sure with regard to noise. Shooting AFL Football mainly. the 7Dii looks so bad...
Let me start by saying that i do own a canon 1dx + a GPS E-1 unit + a couple batteries (LP-E4) and i am wondering whether or not to have it replaced by a 5d mark IV, while the value of the 1dx is still acceptable. I think if adding the extra batteries and the GPS unit, i might be able to get it for roughly the same price. I do mainly landscape and travel photography (cityscape), and just sporadically i shot birds, and sports, but these are a minor fraction of the pictures i take. Photography...
On page 448 of the manual there is a blue box at the bottom with a blue bullet "When the AF point is registered ..." followed by a small black bullet "Automatic selection AF: [ ] HP (HP: Home Position)" Try as I might, I can't get that display. I am pretty sure I can register and unregister an AF point and I've been able to get the SEL HP and SEL . Mostly I'm just curious if the manual is mistaken or am I missing something? I have firmware 1.0.2
Is there a chart somewhere that shows (e.g.) JPEG, RAW, Video across the top and the various settings like "Highlight tone priority" on the left side with dots or footnote numbers in the squares of the chart. Which settings affect which modes and when. I recently learned that while white balance does not change the image data for RAW, it does tag it in the metadata which can (sometimes) affect how the editing software first presents the image to you. e.g. setting the right color balance...

Hello, 1stly I would like to say thanks you again to this web site and all kind people here that it helped me choose the best camera for me :) I have some questions regarding fast and chaotic moving subjects in different colors- AF settings. 1)Im shooting animals - also dogs and Frisbee. I have read an article where was mentioned that for different colors of dogs you should set different AF settings. Any recommendations? Experience? 2) What you could suggest or your experience: what I should...
Although this question's been asked before (I'm a relative newcomer to DSLR photography – please don't bite!), I wondered if the release of DPP4 and the updates to Lightroom CC/6 might mean the answer has changed since even last year. Would you advise that a complete novice learn the basics of RAW processing with DPP (and perhaps even stay with it permanently) or move straight to Lightroom? I've been using a Canon 650D/T4i for the last two years or so and, although I've been shooting in RAW,...
I'm not sure how to phrase my question. Start with a scene where it is possible to take the picture with the correct exposure with no flash and exposure compensation is set to 0. Add ETTL flash with the flash compensation set to 0 (I have a 600 EX if that matters). What does the camera do? How much flash is added? Its not zero because I see the flash go off. Holding the exposure compensation fixed, when the flash compensation is adjusted up and down, more or less flash is added but how...
Dear all! Please help me solve the problem or find the reason for this problem with my 1Dx. What happens is that from time to time when I try to focus using the AF-button, there's no response from the camera. There is no reaction, the focus point does flash and AF does work. Nothing helps. Turning off AF on the lens, turning the camera, replacing the lens - all this does not change anything. Again, there is no reaction, the focus point does flash and AF does work. The only thing that helped...
