I'll try. In 1.5 weeks I'm attending a workshop taught by a Canon Explorer of Light photog. So, I want to learn most of the major options and functions of this camera before then.

Time to whip out the manual... yes, it really is that damn complicated.

I'll also write up, in another thread, my thoughts on the camera as I learn it. So far... "WOW".

see this thread for more...

Happy Days! Congrats.

I didn't realize that you had an X on order. It's going to be an extremely versatile body for you. I'm really curious to see some high-ISO action shots. It looked stupendous on DPReview.

Got my 5D MkIII yesterday. The AF is a huge improvement over my 7D, so much so that I think it'll become my default bird and wildlife body. We'll see how my keeper rate does, but I think it'll go up substantially. That AF system (which you also have) is super.

After 4-years with a 5D2 and a 7D, I'm finally getting around the Menu with some dexterity. It takes time and you have to give yourself little challenges to learn most of the functions and be able to change them quickly. Minimal skills to take advantage of all the power include:
  • Change AF point pattern without taking eye away from viewfinder.
  • Move the single-point AF point around without taking eye away from viewfinder.
  • Change aperture, ISO and/or SS without moving eye
  • MOST IMPORTANT, apply EV correction on the fly and changing shot to shot.

Dave

Thanks Dave. The one thing I really like about the 1D X so far is that there are a ton of easy-accessible custom functions and buttons. I can switch back and forth from spot metering and single shot to let's say zone metering and AI-servo with just a press of a button.

Yeah, I agree with you... those things you listed are very nice to know like the back of your hand, regardless of what camera body you have. It will come with practice, not by reading a manual. But, the manual allows me to modify those functions so it's easy for me to use, and that's my plan.

I guess I should be saying thank you Badger. After all, it was quite easy to hack your bank account.

dude you'd have about $50 bucks to spend if that was the case.

My wife is in charge of the money, why do you think I drive an E46 now?

.3 .6 .9 GND, they completely changed the way I shoot. 99% of what I shoot is landscapes and I wouldn't know what to do without them now. The big stopper would be so much fun to play with. Smooth water and cloud trails in full daylight? Yeah I'll take it.

I've been wanting the big stopper for awhile now. May try to get it in a few months when I finish getting a few other things I wanna get.
