The story continues, my photography stories, journeys and adventures with the legendary Canon EOS 1D series that began in November 2010 with my first Canon EOS 1D series, a second hand Canon EOS 1D Mark III, followed by a second hand Canon EOS 1DX in April 2016, with this article that I published, “The story of my second hand Canon EOS 1DX”. The chapters with my Canon EOS 1DX and Canon EOS 1D Mark III ended recently and today is the start of a new chapter with another Canon EOS 1 series. Now is the time to make the official announcement, let’s all welcome the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II (second hand too!) into my setup with this unveiling video post on Instagram!
In this current photography and digital camera world, with the rise and increasing ownership in mirrorless digital interchangeable lens (DILC) cameras, I am still a strong advocate and supporter of the digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras while I am still searching for my elusive mirrorless DILC camera.
The opportunity to change and upgrade to the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II came when I chanced upon it at the regular camera shop that I had been patronising for the past more than 10 years and still counting, it was a second hand set, the price was reasonable. I gave a shoutout on my Facebook Page with a poll whether I should buy the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II and a fellow photographer friend was keen to take over my Canon EOS 1DX with a price offer. After some short discussions and coordination between selling off my Canon EOS 1DX and buying over Canon EOS 1DX Mark II, the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II came into my setup with the Canon EOS 1DX (sold to my photographer friend) and Canon EOS 1D Mark III (to be sold away) cameras being released from my setup.
Although there were many times when carrying this huge workhorse Canon EOS 1D series DSLR camera gave me shoulder and neck aches during my photography assignments, it had always been and it is currently still is, my highly trusted and reliable workhorse camera for my professional photography usage (until I get another backup camera that is smaller in size!) There is an aura, something special with the Canon EOS 1 series: “There is no turning back!”
What are the photography adventures and stories that I would or I might be coming up with my Canon EOS 1DX Mark II? Follow my photography adventures and stories on my social media networks, through my eyes, heart, soul, photography and stories.
I hope to continue “Delighting You Always” with my photography, stories and adventures.
