thanks for your reply. wouldn't you save money if instead of buying new equipment you replaced the shutter of your perfectly adequate camera?
Between the tax write-offs and the resale value of the used camera, I wouldn't be surprised if it costed more
to replace the shutter.
Exactly the bodies after 2 years don't owe me a thing .....
Good question - but I suspect it's not only a question of replacing the shutter; I suspect other parts can fail within a year with that kind of use. So it probably makes better business sense to replace so often.
Well said ...... the chance of a camera failing isn't worth it when your on a "one of" type assignment ... there are no do overs
Also, the new 1DX does quite a lot of things better than the previous models it replaces, some of them might be very import for certain types of photography. Things that are not immediately apparent for everyone.
Again right on ..... 400,000 thousand shutter actuation's that's another year of use almost, usable ISO up to 6,400 ... that's 2 stops over what I use now! (I know the ISO range is 100-51200 ISO, up to H:204800 but I'm talking truly usable with high IQ) the AF is 61 point and powered by it's own processor faster precise focus: priceless. ....... just those 3 make the upgrade worthwhile.
Clifford I'm not trying to convince you I'm right ... all I can speak to is what is right for me. I don't want to come across as some arrogant techy with a garage full of near new camera bodies gathering dust ... I'm not. I change out 1 body every 2 years, and they are tired at that. It just so happens the X is out this year, if not it would have been the Mark IV. Let's agree that there are users here with a wide variance of equipment and needs, our commonality is we all like/want to use ASP .......

Every time I point out what the competition does ... it sounds like I'm a fanboy troll .... I am a fan boy of ASP if anything and I want Corel to get it right so I can stay with it. Suffice to say the "others" already have compatibly with the "X" and it's not even shipping yet. That's where Corel needs to be if it wants to be a true alternative to the other 3.
Regards everyone ... happy shooting!
