->> I appreciate the article. I still found shooting football was easier for me in Case 3 than 4, but based on Peter's recommendation I'll try 4 again for my first night game this evening.

Everything else certainly makes sense to me.

->> I was sort of hoping to read about his overall thoughts and impressions about it's shooting characteristics such as in real low light, responsiveness at high ISOs and low light and perhaps offering some comparisons to other EOS cameras he has used, rather than a review of what amounts to the users manual which I can read online. Good information, but I would have liked to read about how all of this performed and what advantages or disadvantages it has in various situations.

->> Jeff:

What is real low light? I shoot night football, soccer and indoor volleyball between 16-25K ISO with a 70-200 2.8 and 1.4x. Certainly well within range for newspaper work.
Don't the SI people use strobes in arenas? They don't have to worry about low light because they bring their own.

->> Jeff- if you want to hear the answers to the questions you are asking there are plenty of places who have done pretty extensive tests:

http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/24/canon-eos-1d-x-field-review/

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EOS-1D-X-Digital-SLR-Camer...

http://www.fredmiranda.com/1dx-review/

What Peter did was share his and Jerry Ward's keen insight into how regular sports shooters like us can try and decipher the many options we have when using this camera.

Every time a new camera by Canon comes out everyone- including myself- begs Peter to share his insights- like he did a few years back when he shared his thoughts on the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV:

http://www.sportsshooter.com/news/2371

If you want to know what Peter thinks about the camera- I can pretty much answer for him and myself at the same time when I tell you the 1D X is the greatest [profanity]ing camera Canon has ever built.

...and as an owner of the X I can tell you that what Peter has shared with all of us is NOT gonna be found in the manual. You know how manuals are- hard to read and many times left unread. Peter speaks in real language and he has actually used the damn thing in all sorts of conditions on deadline. Plus- he is Peter Read [profanity]ing Miller.

Thanks Peter!

->> That's sort of what I was hoping to read, Brad. Peter's take on the things I mentioned, not necessarily the other links you posted, but something from PRM that says, "yeah this thing will track action in heavy fog, or it will anticipate when you're going to fire the shutter and fire it for you."

My previous post says: "Good information, but I would have liked to read about how all of this performed and what advantages or disadvantages it has in various situations."

It was cool he was able to talk to somebody who had answers on all the features the camera offers. I wanted to hear what PRM thought about the day to day handling of the camera and how it reacts in a variety of situations, that's all. I know he's Peter Read (profanity) Miller, but he IS just a man.

->> The 1Dx is the greatest (profanity) camera I've ever used. It's (profanity) amazing. There is nothing it can't do. 25000 iso looks like 800 iso on a mark iin. Is fast. It focuses. The files are huge a gorgeous. Peter could have just said. "this camera is the (profanity) shit." and left it at that.

->> Thanks Peter and Jerry. Peter's previous field-tested insights into 1D IV settings were hugely informative and helpful, and this list is even more so because of the many new options. Greatly appreciated.

->> I am the type to pull a new camera out of the box and start shooting. I've been hoping Peter would get his review done before I receive my 1DX. His recommendations for settings on previous cameras have been right on. Now I have a great starting point. Thanks Peter!

->> The timing of Peter Read Miller's article on the 1D-X couldn't have been better. I've owned the camera for a few weeks now and it is still a work in progress. I am graduating from a Mark III and two Mark IVs to the X and I can only say, with my limited hands-on experience that it is the best AF DSLR Canon's produced so far. I shot the Jets/Colts game for Newsday (NY/LI) yesterday and had 7 pics on 5 pages in sports. Sports was pleased and so was I... with the incredible performance of the 1D-X. Thank you Peter.

->> Joseph, I looked at your images on line...nice work, I bet the photographer (you) actually had something to do with the images, not just the 1DX!

After reading the review, I also went to my 5D Mark III. Although some of the locations are slightly different, most of the adjustments described for the 1DX can also be performed on the 5D Mark III. I assume with similar results.
