    Full frame query.

    The 1dx AF is amazing and the detail its full frame sensor captures is better than the 1d 4 sensor,there is no problem having a camera with a full frame sensor

    Full frame query.

    I have had a full frame camera (1dx) now for just over 2 months and have not touched my 1.6 (50d) or 1.3 (1d1v) sensor camera since. It took me some time to get a full frame camera and my only regret is that i never got it sooner.

    Experience-Review Canon EOS 1DX

    I know the the 1Dx produces better images than the 1D mark 4 with my 600 f4 so it should be the same for a 300 and a 2x extender. More pixels does not also make the image any better it is down to the quality of the sensor. Full frame is the way to going

    Experience-Review Canon EOS 1DX

    Just got a 1DX first time out with it and i am amazed by the images that it took on a very dull day and at iso that i would have never used with my old body and the images can be cropped and retain great detail

    Wimberley Head issues

    I have had my Wimberley version II since 15/12/2007 and it gets a lot of use in all sorts of weather and conditions.I too had this type of problem which i fixed by cleaning and lubricating thrust bearing in the lower part of the head.
