    I should add, he isn't into birds at all, hence nothing on that subject. But other reviewers have covered that quite well already.

    John is a superb wildlife photographer and I've known him for several years. The big game changers for him are the light weight and quietness of the R5, because he spends a lot of time on foot. ...

    Thanks very much! There weren't a lot of entries but my jaw sure dropped when I saw Kari's pano --- very nicely done.

    Moraine Lake is one of those iconic spots in the Canadian Rockies, and a...

    This is a really good review. And the camera had no problem maintaining 12 fps with BIFs, which is very nice to see.

    Ha ha yes the 1DX is the Harley Davidson of cameras... it's not exactly known for its stealth :p. That said, I've never spooked an animal because of the shutter noise.

    For sure, 12 fps is adequate, but this will always be your peak speed and in reality you're almost never going to get this. It's sort of like salary versus take-home pay... there are always...

    Interesting comment in the description about the dramatic drop in frame rate when tracking subjects, especially with a long lens. Is this an inherent problem with mirrorless, since focus is achieved...

    It's definitely very good for BOAS, quite fantastic really. But it's interesting that they had some trouble with BIFs in some cases, perhaps due to the lag and blackout. With my old fashioned...

    Agree on both points! The eye AF is quite nice but I think I would still have a hard time using that setting all the time. As an example take the recent bear cub picture that I posted. Before the...

    No you need a dedicated card reader for CF Express. It would be nice if someone made a multi-purpose card reader that could do both types but I haven't found one yet.

    Ha ha yes she had her back turned and her head down, so I'm calling that sufficient permission :p. For technical details, I shot this on the 1DX III at 1/640 sec and f/4, ISO 3200. I used Topaz...

    I'll second that! I have both those apps and they are fantastic. I get very usable images at ISO 6400 with incredible detail. Much better than I could get with Lightroom processing alone. Very...

    Absolutely yes --- that was a sore point with me and my Mark II. The Mark III is a massive upgrade in tracking, hopefully bringing it up to (or even beyond) the level of the D850 and a9. But I have...

    I have to agree --- the 1DX III has not been widely endorsed by wildlife photographers. There is a smidgen of reviews on YouTube, but not a big rush to embrace. The intended audience is really...

    What are you shooting with the 500 mm lens, that would benefit from a slower shutter speed? If it's birds or other wildlife, they will need to be perfectly still to get the shot. I can see where...

    Probably a good strategy overall (especially the part about the winning lottery ticket!). The new 100-500 with 1.4 TC will have a wide-open aperture of f/10 at full zoom, so you're definitely going...

    Thank you! And yes for sure, the R5 and the 100-500 would make a very fine setup for BIF. Being able to shoot without a tripod is a huge advantage. I tried hand-holding my big rig for shooting...

    All good points! The 'low' pixel count of the 1DXIII (compared to other cameras) does allow for some other performance perks, like lower noise at high ISO and faster shooting. Plus file sizes are...

    Yes I agree with Joel - you can probably skip the gimbal tripod and the monopod. I'm guessing that wildlife will be spotted along the road, so in most cases you would shoot from the car, or if safe...
