I was at the Photo Expo NYC 2011 I had stop by the Canon booth to check out their products and services. Canon had the flagship camera on display the EOS 1DX, it’s a full frame CMOS Sensor 18.1 megapixel, with dual digic 5+ image processors , 61 point high density reticular AF, 512,000 high ISO standard, 12 FPS high-speed continuous shooting, and EOS iTR AF. It also has the capacity to do EOS full Video with increase audio function with a dual card slots for max data transfer rate of 167 mb/s and the ability to transfer from one card to another when it get full.
When I had lifted it up the weight was extremely heavy it won’t be a camera that you want to hold for a very long time, but that said if you drop it on to the floor it might crack the floor it built that tough. One question; why did Canon go in the wrong direction of not getting over the 25 megapixel range to take on film? The answer from Canon Rep.; was that canon felt that the noise was a problem and the best solution was at 18.1. I think Canon took a short cut on this camera they are the best in business of RD of camera, they could have overcome this noise problem if they put their minds to it. I think there is still some time to fit this problem it has an estimated shipping date of March 2012 with price still to be determined. Over all the camera has a lot problems fix and have listen too many of the photographers of asking for different features.
Canon had a many different stages to demonstrate the different products lines. The main stage had guest speakers and camera setups. Another stage was talking about the seminars and programs that they have. I talk with Ms. Rocco about the Canon Seminars of being accessible and that she had not come across this problem and that I should touch base with Kristen Cunningham her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org at Canon. Later on that day Ms. Myers AS/PR was able to answer some of my question but directed me to Mr. Donach Technical Specialist with online education. I able to ask about the accessibility of the Canon website and was able to show him in where it would be hard for someone who used a jaws program or other speech programs to navigate the website. Also I showed that the Canon website was not in compliance with Web Accessible guidelines for person with disability. I also had mentioned that person with disability had over 175 billion dollars worth of discretionary spending and why is canon not marketing to person with a disability for their seminars and photography destination. Mr. Donach said that he would get back in touch with me to advise if some of the change can be done.
It was great to see the other products and some of the stage presentation. Canon Professional Services were on hand to help with any all questions and cleaning your canon products.
