|Canon EOS-1D X vs. Nikon D4 camera|
This is a follow up to my earlier post on the Nikon mouse that roared. Now that the Winter Olympics is just days away, more details have leaked out about this new camera. The official announcement should be next week with delivery scheduled for late March or early April. Keep checking back for the latest information.
Possible Nikon D4s specifications :
- New AF system with 3D Tracking in 9 or 21 point groups
- Native ISO ranging from 100 - 25,600
- Improved time-lapse movie recording
- White balance with fine tuning (0.25-0.50 Kelvin)
- Adjustable LCD color tone
- 60 fps 1080p video recording capability
- List price close to $6,000
Canon, in anticipation of the Nikon D4s' arrival, has released Firmware 2.0.3 to the EOS-1D X. This is a major upgrade and will make the camera even better. My readers know I have picked the EOS-1D X as the best, full frame wildlife camera two years in a row. With this new Firmware, the camera should hold its own against the Nikon D4s, until the Canon replacement comes out in 2015.
In addition, Canon plans to make a big splash this year, most probably around the World Cup, starting in June. This month long event will give Canon worldwide attention and they plan to announce one or two advanced DSLRs, including the replacement to the EOS-7D, some exciting EOS Cinema products and a few EF lenses. This summer should be very exciting and I am eager to place my pre-orders.
