      THE NEW CANON EOS-1D X DIGITAL SLR CAMERA


      While I am swamped getting ready to head to Homer, AK next Monday for the two now-sold-out IPTs and have not had time to study the announcement, I did want to share the details with you here. The new camera will feature a completely new 61-point autofocus system, fast shooting up to 12 fps, an 18-Megapixel full-frame CMOS Sensor, full HD video recording and much more.

      Please feel free to post comments and questions below. I will do my best to reply.
