EOS-1D X on film:
Pt. 5 – Using the camera

EOS-1D X on film

January 2012

Although Canon’s 18.1 Megapixel EOS-1D X DSLR is a highly specified professional camera it has been designed, using feedback from professional photographers, to be as easy to use as possible. The fifth of a series of six films about the EOS-1D X examines some of the camera’s key functionalities and capabilities to demonstrate how it is an amazing and intuitive creative tool for photographers and filmmakers.

In the film Canon Europe’s European Professional Imaging Communications Manager, Mike Owen, reveals: “The EOS-1D X is very much an evolution, rather than a revolution, in camera design. We’ve listened to photographers; we’ve taken their feedback on board – whether it’s the size of a button [or] the position of a button. We really wanted to make sure this was a tool that they can work with as part of their everyday [working] lives.”

This ability to tailor the camera to an individual’s workflow is available via a Custom Controls function so that photographers can customise the functions of 10 buttons and dials to meet their personal requirements. A total of 31 Custom Functions allow users options to control aspects of the camera’s exposure, drive, autofocus, displays, operation and ‘Others’, including restricting the available drive modes, setting the card and image size, a multi-function lock for controls, and an option to select the default function when the erase button is pressed.

For easier menu navigation and setting, all the AF settings and AF Custom Functions of the EOS-1D X have been grouped into one dedicated AF menu tab so photographers can get to their preferred autofocus settings without any delay.

RAW shooting, multiple exposures, viewfinder and HD Movies

In response to feedback from photographers who want to shoot RAW files, but ‘move on’ JPEGs quickly, RAW processing has been included within the camera. In-camera RAW processing offers options including brightness correction, White Balance, changing Picture Styles, changing Auto Lighting Optimizer settings, high speed noise reduction, colour space adjustments, and creating JPEGs directly from RAW files.

Another new feature in the camera is the EOS-1D X’s ability to shoot multiple exposures, where between two and nine images are ‘stacked’ on top of each other to create one single, final image. This feature is available for both RAW and JPEG images, though if M-RAW or S-RAW are set, the recording quality will automatically switch to RAW.

The EOS-1D X’s large viewfinder has 100% coverage, a 35 degrees angle of view, a 0.76x magnification, and a transmissive liquid crystal display (LCD) screen to allow more information to be displayed, including the camera’s 61 AF points, Zone, Spot or Expansion AF points and a grid when required. To avoid the screen looking cluttered photographers can choose what information the LCD displays or even decide to have it show none at all.

The EOS-1D X’s Full HD Movie capabilities and settings have been expanded to include control over frame rates, timecode, additional compression codecs, more manual control over settings (including audio), and extended recording times up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds.
